  1. isn't it pull it backwards to lock?? push forward to open?? I mean that is if you don't put the handle in upside down with the spike in the air??
  2. makes ya wonder... we have had maggot wagons pull into out shop or get escorted in by dot and be missin a set of duals on a loaded trailer.... never knew where they went.... wtf????
  3. 3 leaf walkin beam on 34's by the looks of it. possibly 38's
  4. bump, doesn't anyone have a nice tan, white or mint green R model wheel laying around???/
  5. in this day and age and for peace of mind and with them being so reasonable I wouldn't even take a chance. throw it away and out a new one on the legs. unless its vintage, fifth wheels are disposable . been a few incidents in recent years up here in Ny with all the scrap and garbage haulers,,, they use a big hoe to push the load down, ended up cracking the fifth wheel down the middle and trailer came unhooked and took out a family van and killed them.not worth it.
  6. that Lund visor on that wide Autocar cab cant be an easy one to come by?/
  7. wow that's some straight B model sheet metal right there.... now time to get some bugs splattered on it. cant help but think none of these new generation bugs ever encountered a B model comin down the road?
  8. so why bother posting a bragging picture?? he was looking for one For Sale...
  9. somewhere in the last few years a $600 scrap B model is worth $2500 and a $2500 one is worth $6000... guess I should start sellin off mine..
  10. wheres the part where the greedy lazy grandson of the company owner (who went in the hospital) didn't wanna work and wanted to sell off assets and not work a day in his life??
  11. the White 4000 series with the Reo 200 or 220 Gold Comet was a bad ass powerful engine, the rest of the truck was pretty much junk. maybe good over the road but would not hold up in heavy road construction, same with the Diamond Reos on the same platform, the 549 V200 ih s and the 850 series Fords, beat them in heavy road construction and they would fall apart. exhaust, fuel tanks, spring hangers were just not as tough as an old Mack. this was a time when people up here In the north were scepticle on Diesels and gas jobs were still the In thing, the motors were powerful but they trucks around them were not as tough
  12. not sure that's even a 74. 74 might not have had that bumper and grille looks like an 80's that bolted to the air to air and I don't think a 74 had those front hubs and would not have said econodyne
  13. was def a 477, tandem tractor, red with white headliner and white steering wheel and dash insert, 5 and a 3, was not a slouch I been told but the 549 V200's we had would walk them all if you could keep them together.
  14. think it all depends to . back in the day Mack catered to customers, now customers don't mean shit. we had an 82 R600 300 with a 9 speed roadranger and the big square tanks on each side. it was an ex Ryder truck. I think Mack catered to Ryder and Roadway back in the day
  15. I also like the superdog with round headlites and makes me wonder the story in the MH cabover with the bicentennial colors and Mack logo on the door
  16. the yellow and black B is or was Tim Hoover's, sittin on a wrecked CH chassis and was thrown together I a matter of weeks to haul his vintage quarry trucks around
  17. 413 was an animal in those R400's. we had a few R402's with the junk 401 an duplexes and one R410SX, baby 18 speed double over quad and 44 rears and was told that it would run like its ass was on fire, could outrun a B61 or the T800 Ford we had with a 534 gas. was no match for a 549 International tho. this was the late 60's when gas was still cheap
  18. Do the letters F.O. mean anything to you? Hahaha kinda reminds me of a B model site I found on the internet advertising B MODEL PARTS FOR SALE.and they were using a picture of my truck on their website. I contacted them and got a nasty response....
  19. any of you guys over there feel like sending a few pair of those Mack flaps in the first pic on the superliner over to the states??? id pay for a few pair
  20. the politically correct name for my favorite country singers ex road truck is Miss Jesse... two of my favs, ole Hoss and old B models
  21. so I have to ask, why did they only produce this in a single screw??
  22. in a hobby truck I don't worry too much..i keep every fuel receipt
  23. i usually use Lucas or ATF in my B at fill ups. don't really care if they dip my tanks, if its red its red,id rather have my pump well lubed
