    Baker's dozen tape measure? The one foot mark is at 13 inches...
  3. Over the model run there was some variation in some specs, but this is a basic look. B73 - Cummins NH 220 and NH 250 HP B733 - Cummins NT 250-280 HP turbo motors B75 - Mack END 673 170-180 HP, also END 711 after 1962 B753 - Mack ENDT673 205-210 HP turbo motor B755 - Mack END 864 250 HP V8 motor B77 - Supercharged Cummins NHRS B773 - Cummins 335 HP turbo motor
  4. Sharing the road with B model Macks.
  5. Good looking project! Ask away with any questions. Nothing wrong with pos. ground electrical systems. I have a couple trucks that are positive ground. That is how they were built, that is how they will stay. You will want to rewire your truck due to the age of the wire. All the wire insulation will be FUBAR. A new harness is cheap insurance.

    Run away shipping charges

    Some common sense in the shipping dept would be nice. Ooops! Sorry, I fell into Fantasy Land.
  7. DOT 3 brake fluid would be the closest to the original spec available today. DOT 4 could also be used and it has a higher boiling point. Both are glycol based. I would use the DOT 3.
  8. I took a picture of the air six speed X107 sticker that I would like but I haven't checked to see if a vinyl shop could reproduce it. Hmmm... it has only been about 8 years. Haven't found the stickers available anywhere. Possibly find someone to take a picture of their 12 spd sticker and try for a repop?

    Mack MV 620 D

    I have never seen it but it sure looks ahead of its time for the late 50's. Being a prototype, it probably had various components tried and evaluated. I had never heard that the V8 was installed! I was thinking of the linkage or air actuated cylinder needed for the Duplex transmission. I would image that the Duplex got swapped out to an automatic transmission in later years.
  12. Does it look like this? If so, the NAPA # is NMC M2842. Used on Diamond T's and Internationals. https://shop.industrialbrakeandclutch.com/BRAKE-MASTER-CYLINDER-1-3-4-BORE-FE777-M284249.htm

    NOS door installation

    Last I knew Watt's had them. For various Mack and non mack projects, I have been able to match up sizes for the glass run channels, whiskers, rubber bumpers, weatherstriping, etc. through Restoration Specialities. Purchased items for both the DE and the B with L cab and quality is very good. http://www.restorationspecialties.com/ Noticing the size of the work stall, I will have to wait outside...

    2019 Ford F550 Jerr-Dan Wrecker

    Had a chance to check the truck on Friday. Chassis was built 8/18 and the date identifier in the VIN is K which indicates a 2019 model.
  18. Apparently my friend thought his Ford F650 rollback was lonely so he purchased a 2019 F550 V10 4 X 4. It was delivered last Friday afternoon. He was busy with it on New Years Eve. Next stop is the sign shop.

    1941 Mack EQ tandem TK **Exceptional Condition**

    Could be Mike. Think that was a 519. The END 672 started in Mack buses in 1948 and there was a push by Mack to advertise the use in trucks a year later with the EH and trailer. Pretty much the end of the line for the E.

    1941 Mack EQ tandem TK **Exceptional Condition**

    Yes it was. Mack called it the END 672. Starting in 1949, the Mack Diesel Caravan program traveled the country promoting the use of diesel engines in trucks. I wouldn't be surprised that same gassers were converted to diesel as an upgrade by their owners.
