  1. Bullheaded that's an oddball that blue truck. looks like a Loadstar car with an S series hood?? always like old Ih's myself always wanted an Ih pickup to drive around. those things were beasts for pickups
  2. I mostly remember the inverted camelback with fuel and milk haulers in upstate ny and new England. I wonder if there was a reason for this?
  3. I rememeber when those escutcheons and inside Mack door handles were about 5-6 bucks a piece, and the escutcheons always came in a package of 4
  4. so im curious, does this fit on the same rubber trunnion as say an old school 38 rear regular camelback? or is the trunnion tube higher to take up for the inverted springs?
  5. agree with Larry, Fontaine aka (the rebel wheel) cause they were made Birmingham Alabama not in China like they are now a days are the only ones I ever seen with a handle. they were about the most secure wheel ever made. lube it up
  6. pics? what engine and what style rears?
  7. I usually pour a quart of atf in each fuel tank of my B at fuel ups...….. use to run red oil in a 2006 f360 6.0 I drove. damn thing could see a snowflake and gel up.....
  8. eastern R with western grille? shouldn't a r700 western have the weird bumper with the cut out for the extended grille?
  9. no weird noises or shaked other than normal, I have never seen a B61 that didn't shake and rattle. this motor was done in the late 80's and used very little in a dump truck. it sat. I put it in my B in early 2000's . it was always a stout motor ad very clean and tight. other than a head gasket I haven't done anything to it. I did pry against the balancer a little while putting the belt on(some idiot when they built the truck, me forgot to put the spacer plates back in radiator crossmember so there was no room for the belt. I had to loosen crossmember up and pryed it out against the balancer to get belt it. im wondering if I could have bent the balancer?? the hub in the middle of the balancer is pretty think so im thinking not. I have a few711's laying around, thinkin of just swapping the balancer and see what it looks like. btw a balancer for a 711 is NLA from Mack.
  10. gotta tear into it sunday. if you look at it, you can see a wobble like 1/2 inch like something is loose. never thought about thrust washers. this has always been a tight motor.only way thrust washers usually come loose is if someone slams a pilot shaft in hard while putting a tranny in. I have had a few 673's that I found the thrust washers in the bottom of the pan. put new ones in and it still ran like a top. this one has be a little puzzled. never paid attention til both belts came off. now that they are back on I stare at the balancer and see the wobble.
  11. 1975 end707 . diesel and no I don't wanna hear 707 is a gas job. been runnin this engine in my B since 2007, no issues. on the way to Macktoberfest I blew both belts(some of you know) ended up getting a belt back on but after driving home I notice the balancer is wobbling. never noticed this before. are all balancers the same? like 673 711, 237 300? or do I need specific? and should I look further?? is this thing on its way out? bearings?? and again is a end707. its a 711 with maxidyne head gaskets and fire rings. I dunno what the specific purpose of this engine was but I can tell you it likes to run 1100-1800 and hates anything over that
  12. we started building this truck in feb. was about one of the first around. the crossmember might be made for an old school pto but def not for one with the pump on the back and 4 lines coming out of the pump. dual feed and return for winches. we def had to modify the crossmember. everything else went straight forward except the pto programming and the not being able to use it unless the e brake is on. were a pretty savy shop able to figure anything out but this thing was not well thought out
  13. we finished building our 4500 tow truck. used it a few times. had major issues mounting pto pump. seems it the trans and crossmembers weren't ever made to allow for a pump and pto leaving no space. we ended up modifying the crossmembers for the pump and hydraulic lines. also ended up having the have a gm service come to our shop with laptop to program the pto .seems the switch was in the dash but wouldn't work unless it was programmed by a dealer. also needed to have high idle programmed for pto. probably not needed normally but for a tow truck application with dual winches you need high idle. I think the one thing I dislike the most is the pto WILL not work unless the emergency brake is set. this is a flaw on gm. how the hell do they expect it to work in a dump truck application?? the gm guy who came to the shop to program ours said there is no way around it. I don't see that. how are you suppose to spread stone or sand with the pto If you have to have the e brake on?
