  1. Also bushings in the rail housing are probably worn out,might have to have some made..
  2. You may have to replace the bar and saddles also..
  3. Ok got ya,I only worked on 58 rears where the bar is held on with trunnion caps..good luck.
  4. Why couldn't you just install new trunnion bar and bushings?
  5. I had a 1983 RD with a 300+ all air..

    I don't smoke that much but these are are pretty good, Baccarat Rothschild,nice mild smoke for when I just want to sit back and relax,usually out in the garage or on the back deck,anybody else..
  8. How bad is the rest of it,any more pictures,what are u gonna use it for,that crack is due to rust spreading the flange not stress or fatigue,seen way worse than that still working ..
  9. I didn't see any trucks like that where we were,all looked like factory dumps,Fords,KW t-800,and Macks,a lot of them fairly new,must be more to it than meets the eye,operating cost are not all that different than any where else except for labor..
  10. If remember right the company doing the work was Eastman,does that sound familiar ?
  11. I was at Hollywood beach,couldn't talk to any drivers,the trucks looked like they were in nice shape,all tri axle with 16 foot body's by 6 foot high,foreman said they were running twenty ton loads,he also sad a lot f them run double shifts,it was like a parade of trucks on south surf road all day long..
  12. Just curious,what's wrong with the paint Mack sells with the harder,had a truck painted with it once and the painter added a different hardner,it was a super wet look hardner,that truck had a killer shine on it for many years with very little maintness..
  13. My wife and I just got a German Shepherd pup last week she is wearing us out quickly lol but not chewing up anything yet..
  14. Any body have or know where I can get the muffler support bracket for a 96 Mack Cl,I was a old the left and right brackets are the same,so either one..
  15. While on vacation checked out this operation down the beach,all the sand is trucked in,no dredging allowed down here,talked to the foreman about the trucks,mostly all on hire,they run about 20 to 21.5 tons a load,pay is 50 to 56 an hour,how the he'll do u run a truck for those rates,all good looking equipment some pretty new to.
  16. Does anyone even do this any more,is this a DYS thing or for pros only?
  17. Look on line, like Iowa 80 has free flow mufflers the chrome or stainless are pricy but the plain Janes are pretty reasonable ..
  18. Ok I got ya now,just had it in my head the internal adjustment would move the linkage also,thanks for the clarification..
  19. Also I wanted to say the reason for the internal adjustment is to get 1/2 inch to 9/16 inch between the brake and throw out. Bearing witch they say you must maintain for full clutch release.
  20. Not arguing but,if adjust the linkage first then internally you will be moving the bearing witch will change the linkage adjustment you just made,thoughts ?
  21. Got that right,an 1/8 of play = about an inch and half pedal movement by my uneducated calculations..
