  1. Interesting to see a Farr air cleaner mounted. Usually see those on Detroit Diesel equipped rigs. Original buyer wanted it built to his specs!
  2. Nice! A fellow down the street has a couple 12V pickups. Engines are super solid. He has gone through many ball joints because of plowing.
  3. No spit and polish but this Bulldog stood tall and proud on the show field.
  4. You guys are looking for a challenge. Busy time of the year to be doing painting!
  5. Usually there is a casting number but it sounds like the rust handled that already. If you have a good parts shop with an "old guy" there is a chance of matching it up. Back in the day many parts under Mack, Ford, Chevy etc were actually the same part. If the physical casting dimensions match your OEM along with the bore dimension, you are good to go. White Post Restoration can stainless line your original cylinders as an option. https://whitepost.com/brake-sleeving-rebuilding-services/
  6. Dang! Sort of hoping I made your list of undesirables. It is only Tuesday and it seems I am on everyone else's shit list for the week! Forums have changed with so many going to Facebook. Forum updates, people changing interest and the crap that Volvo is producing with a Mack name have demoralized a few I suspect. Heaven forbid, maybe we have become boring? I have been around for a day or two and have enjoyed OD's Pictures of the Week, all the projects and show photos that have been posted by many folks, FT's racing exploits, Ray delivering nursery stock or moving trucks, folks trying to figure out codes and cups on the modern junk and talking about everything and anything. Appreciate when Glen sets us straight. Ron, HK and Superdog were good for that as well. And what the hell is 41 Chevy doing now? Might need to check our alibi. We obviously have folks that lurk who used to be regular members and it would be nice if they would stop in and say Hi. If they don't want to, that is their right. Can't force them to participate. Hard to please all the folks all the time, I guess. There have been a couple members including yourself that have launched spectacular diatribes on various subjects that were priceless. I printed copies so I would still have them in case of a crash. Some got pretty heated and took a few days to simmer down and sort out! Water over the dam at this point. All for the love of a Dog.
  7. OK. I will take the bait. Who are the "undesirables" that need to be dismissed? We have personal politics AND political correctness? How can we have both at the same time? "Coupled with incessant blabbering about nothing, or the same thing over and over really gets annoying and dispatches participation." Boy, I am in deep because I keep talking about Mack Trucks. I better do some thinking on this...
  8. A couple more Dogs at Macungie. The 1987 is a V8.
  9. A few folks are missing. Gearhead204, 57 bcr Al, PeterMack also. Must be on vacation at the beach?
  10. Congratulations on finding your better half!
  11. Yes, the Contour Cab was available on B42, B44, B60, B61, B65, B66, B68, plus others. Depending on model, the truck may have a standard length hood/fender combo or the short hood such as the B67. Follow the link and open the pdf for a further comparison. https://www.bigmacktrucks.com/tutorials/article/11-b-model-cab-data/
  12. Don't have details to convert to a full flow oil set up but here is a link using a spin on canister type bypass filter. It may provide a little more filtering capability. https://www.bigmacktrucks.com/topic/3364-oil-filter-cartridges-for-707-gas-engine/
  13. I have seen a couple Hall-Scott equipped Mack LT models. I haven't seen a 707 powered LT in person that I can recall. Years ago, I was shown an old fuzzy photograph purported to be an LT with a Mack motor but the truck was pretty messed up and I wasn't sure it was an actual LT. I thought it looked more like an LH. An LT painted army olive drab would fit in your collection!
