  1. the thing that I cant stand is how anytime any truck spins, bein a brand new star or whatever, they use the same clip of the old General with Dayton wheels spinning. really??? and they never show them getting paid for all these pull up the hills and winch out. as someone whos in the business that is the real drama part. fighting with some foreign shitbag who doesn't want to pay or doesn't have a card or doesn't wanna call home base for a compcheck! or some foreigner cause they all do it, that wants a 'break' on the bill. when the bill comes out my rule is No negotiating, don't deal! and I don't care who it is ,how the hell do they make a boom and winch last by hooking on some loaded rig and snapping the cable and ripping someone up the hill? yea, try that a few times and youll rip the plannateries right out! a winch is made for the cable to be pulled out and to pull someone up the hill or out, not to hook up and snap the cable and use it as a chain
  2. pretty sure they came with the chassis mounted cooler instead of the driver side mounted motor cooler. 1982 R we had at work had the cheap 3 bar grille bolted to the charge air cooler
  3. pretty sure my 711 has a standard Mack water pump. I think they only come in long and short shafts just like Chevy's. I know I replaced it and pretty sure it was for a 237
  4. god where the hell are these prices coming from? maybe I should start advertising some of my 1500-2500 B61T's for 6-8000
  5. remember hearing this story many times, we don't live far from where this truck has sat for many year. sadly someone stole the gold scripted Mack taillight off this truck as I remember it had when it sat in Dick's yard. he passed this past year I think and his kids brought this truck to Balston. he has many many treasures in his yard that everytime I had stopped are NOT FOR SALE including many AC mack shovels and cranes, a brute of a DM and some early BX Macks
  6. i will be happy when all these tv advertisements are over. if only they spent their money and time on something worthwhile. we get done with this one and they start all over again with ''oh the votes were screwed with'' or some other bullshit, so sick of politics
  7. those shells and fenders in the Mack pictures are pre 1959. back then you hung it as a section and adjusted as needed. i have always bolted fender, inner fender and inner headlight panel and outer as a whole and hung with the top two bolts as section. i always take a 3/8 fine thread bolt and cut the head off to hang the back of the fender on til you get everything secured. i have left the outer headlight panel off and just done inner with the assembly. either way you usually fight with the top headlight to fender bolt
  8. nothin personal, we all have our opinions, just never cared for that grille. over all a really nice truck, like other said, hard to find a tan dash R that doesn't have 200 holes bored in the dash panels
  9. love it myself, always wanted a clean tan dash truck, Detroit is nice and different, i like the Canadian spread but god i have always hated that grille, even in F models, dunno why an my own opinion
  10. agree, see how tight the old and new fit on the spindle. more top to bottom wobble than side to side is what id worry about. not tellin whats happened over the last 40 years or if someone installed a mismatched set to try to remedy a problem or a worn out spindle.
  11. been eyein this for years. just a little out of my budget yet
  12. pretty sure that truck use to belong to the Town of Galway or one of its employees. it hauled the old Oshkosh to the Balston show for years. it to was there this year by the state police set up
  13. wonderful restoration. remember seein it done at Gerharts just didn't think it was that long ago, time flies
  14. AZB did Matt do that truck or parts of it? i remember seein it at Gerharts i think the first year you had it done.
  15. there is no gas, or diesel version.... the 67 and 72 was offered with diesel or gas , same exact transmission.
  16. wasn't sayin out an eastern top on a western bottom. id those the top and bottom in the scrap pile. deadliest piece of junk Mack ever put on a truck
  17. i guess the Dems forgot about the millions of poor bastards affected with the Hurricane and flooding and would rather point their attention to some Bs that happened 30 years ago
  18. id take those battery boxes off and throw them in the scrap aluminum pile and put the eastern ones on with the X on the front. only thing those are good for is fallin on your ass when the cover slips off. otherwise that truck is such a honey. bias ply tires and all.
  19. yea, ended up with that beautiful Cresci box cut off and scrapped and last i see it not much has changed after that. damn shame
  20. weather is not lookin too promising last time i looked and we planned on going
  21. interesting. B422 would have a size 3 bellhousing originally and a baby quad or duplex 77 series. someone would have to change motor mounts and all to put a 464 in there. never amazes me how much wrenching went on with these old trucks
  22. usually those dimples were drilled out and a tin flap added and they were for a DM model but you know Mack, they were universal
  23. its only 12 volt,one hot 12 volt will turn it fine. as for filter and wires, id see if it runs first then screw with the rest.
  24. id check the air cleaner, check the rack. don't worry about the valves. at least see how bad the oil is and run it off a fresh can of fuel. put it in third gear and pull start it before you waste money on a starter or a bunch of filters. remember some trucks were parked for a reason.
