  1. How would this hold up in a marine environment say to coat a below deck aluminum fuel tank,any idea,I've heard of some people using coal tar with good success but this sounds better.
  2. How are u grossing 85,000 lbs in NY and what size body's are u running,must be huge?

    Sorry for your loss Chevy..
  4. Parts dept should have a rebuild kit for it,thought you were an owner operator?
  5. That's what I was thinking to,there a pain,try to spray a little lube on he s cam where it makes contact with the pad.
  6. The light switch is probably in the cab,look over and around by he clutch pedal
  7. How much larger,does it fit the spindal correctly,I would go with the original,better safe than sorry..
  8. Doesn't sound like it's fixed to me,I would love to drive this truck to see/feel what your experiencing,..
  9. That's exactly my thinking but a couple people posted otherwise,I personally know of more than a few Macks in there 80's that still have the original front springs,Thanks for your input..
  10. Thanks,not sure what to do now,is it worth even replacing on 22 year old springs or should I just go to a spring shop and replace the springs ?
  11. Anybody have one of those external mount power window motors they want to part with?
  12. I don't think an out of balance drum would make the truck wobble at 25 mph,out of round maybe,do what Chevy said look for wheel wobble by jacking up and turning the tires.
  13. You need a steerable lift axle to transfer that permit,that permit is worth quit a few bucks so don't let it go,you can bank the weight until u get a truck to use it,Send an e-mail to Wiliam J Morris@dot.ny.gov they are very helpful.If u can post some pictures off your truck someone here can tell u what axle you have.How much was the truck previous registered for?
  14. Is this a tri axle with a steerable lift axle?
  15. As far as I know there the original springs,20,000 lb,there are no cracked or broken leaf and I'm sure the pins and bushings are original also
  16. Any body replace there own pins and bushings,these are the screw in type on a 96 Mack,pins shouldn't be a problem but the bushings look to be another story,looks like a job for a professional ?
  17. Well one thing about a set back axle it gives the truck a heck of a bounce when u hit a sharp dip in the road like on a concert road where a slap dropped down,thinking this might eliminate that or at the least help quite a bit.
  18. Yeah I figured that,not much one can do on a short wheel base and set back axle with 58 rears 20 front and drop axle..lol
  19. Any body ever try the Timbren suspension on the front,air bag or the hollow rubber type,the roads are getting worse here every day and my CL is getting the shit pounded out of it,and me along with it? I'm sure I rember a few seconds years back someone on here installed the air bags on the front of there CL but I can't find it now..
  20. If your talking about the cap that's welded to the bar it's supposed to be there and there is no oil just Greece.
  21. Well if the 02 has blow by when it's cold it's gonna be a whole lot worse when your working it,I would favor the granit,it's a much nicer truck to drive to in my opinion..
