  1. Saw it. Real neat. I have the original engine or I should say, what is left of it, from that truck. Bought a bunch of parts in Florida about eight years or so. I am interested in selling them. If anybody needs AC engine parts email me.
  2. I have a Case 1939 modelSC that is in need of rebuild. Bought it twenty years ago with good intentions. It is finished in early rust with traces of orange paint. Very complete and rebuildable except for one nut and a fender. The fenders were accessories so not so important. it starts on gas and you switch over to kero when warmed up. back then gas was fifteen cents a gallon and kerosene was six cents. I have realized as I approach my 73d birthday that if I finish my 1919 Mack AC I have succeeded so I doubt that I will ever get to the Case so you Case lovers out there now have a chance at it. I am willing to sell or trade. Hard part is getting it out of Arizona to wherever. If you are like me and really want it you will fetch it from where it sets. I can get it to the Dallas area at no cost or any where along the way(I-10 to I-20 corridor). If any interest e-mail me at redingtonranch@vtc.net. Also have a rough mid fifties LTLSW with an excellent cab and a few single stack sit down sleepers for a Mack.
  3. I have two with single stack cutouts. redingtonranch@vtc.net
  4. I have a couple of sets of white with the fifties logo facing each other and a set of black. I also have black with silver logos facing each other. Also cab flaps in whiute, black, and maybe red. I have a few sets of original Mack old logo floor mats for B and R models too. Send me an e-mail to redingtonranch@vtc.net telling me what you are interested in.and I will send pictures. I prefer to trade but cash works too. Need parts for early AC.
  5. The difference is the early AC had a round radiator with the fan being belt driven from the driveshaft and was located in the center of the radiator. The later models had a pair of verticle, square radiators on each side of the cowl and the fan was mounted on the flywheel.
  6. Thank you for the reply. I spoke to him some time ago but he could not help me. I think i will have to build something that looks right. hate to do that since the truck is very original and has no othe reproduction "stuff" on it.
  7. I need an upper and lower water tanks for an early (pre 1920) AC Model. Entire radiator would work as well. Also need fire walls and fan. That is all that is left to complete my truck. 1919 Mack parts seem to be a bit scarce.
  8. Tried to contact you but link did not work. email me at redingtonranch@vtc.net and I will send pics of flaps
  9. Barry: I had fifty or so pairs made up a few years ago. I sold them on E-Bay and privately. I still have a few pairs of white just like you showed above. I also have some in black with the same logo. I had some more made up with the Mack logo in chrome, left and right. Still have some left. I stopped selling them due to cost of shipping. I still trade or sell occasionally. The company that made thes up was licensed by Mack and I do not believe they had a set up charge since they still had the logo in their archives. If interested, let me know and I will see if I can find the source for you. meanwhile, I guess i could part with a few sets that I have. E-Mail to redingtonranch@vtc.net.
  10. Sorry to have taken so long to get back to you but I have been on the road. Call me at 928-828-5555 and we can discuss it. Don...
  11. For whatever it is worth, I was introduced to spray can paint from Imperial Supply in Green Bay. The body man who told me to try it was right. I use it for small parts and individual panels.I was told it had more pigments that others. I had tried BPS by Valspar which comes from Tractor Supply but did not work as well. Paint guns are best but when you are doing a small job you may not want to have to take the time to clean the gun. I have had good luck in touching up trailers as well. Damage in transit is easily fixed. The 99 cent Walmart stuff just will not work. Good for patio furniture and such. Also, I carry a can in my tractor so I can keep my trailers clean looking.which helps the DOT man off my back. Part of it is how you prepare the surface and then how you lay the paint on. Too much sags and too little looks like a spray can. Blending the overlaps is not as easy as with a gun but you can do it with practice. Do not knock the brush. In the old days a good painter could lay down a paint job with a brush and it would be as smooth as glass. Those kind of paints are illegal today and hardly anybody has those skills anyway. I still use a brush for varnish on wood decks and floorboards. You have to warm the product and use a HIGH quality brush. The technique for flowing the product so that there are no air bubbles or visable brush marks takes time and practice. Well worth the effort.
  12. I have two sleepers that are sit down type. One with double stack cut outs and one with single. Have a couple without cut outs as well. I am realizing my age and it is time to give someone else a shot at having fun. Have lots more Mack "stuff" that i hace collected in the last fifty years. Mud flaps for rear and for cab. Mirriors for R Models, Floor mats with old logo(50's). Mid fifties LTLSW with title(rough but good cab). More. I am willing to sell or trade since I need a fan. firewalls, and possibly a radiator for a teens AC. Pictures available. Contact redingtonranch@vtc.net
  13. I have had some response to my listing but my computer dropped six months of e-mails and I have no idea as who to respond to. Please contact me again at redingtonranch@vtc.net I have at least two NEW lights and both left and right mounts for B Models and some mounts for R Models. Once the lights are gone I will sell the mounts that are left.
