  1. It started with a Cummins NVH-1200 (400 HP) natural aspirated 12 cylinder. Has a Cummins six under the hood now. Possibly a KTA.
  2. Fine selection of working Dogs! If I ruled the world, the R and RW would still be produced.
  3. Saw this the other day at the Granite State Show. It is an ex Barnhart Crane and Rigging and believe it is the one that Hobert spied doing some work in his neighborhood a few years ago. https://www.bigmacktrucks.com/topic/45748-a-big-cool-mack/?_fromLogin=1 What a BEAST!
  4. The B-67 with the flush mounted bumper and contoured cab featured a dimension of 89". The measurements I used up above was for the standard bumper and flat back cab panel for straight truck use.
  5. Both the B-53 and B-57 were heading in that same general direction. The B-53 had the fish belly frame and the B-57 used a straight frame behind the cab. The BBC for the B-53 was 108" (same as a B-61) and the B-57 was 101" (same as a B-67). 2,625 B-53 models were built between 1962-1966. 281 B-57 models were made between 1964-1966.
  6. The B-53 was a weight saving mixer chassis that would be the forerunner to the DM model. Usually had a heavy Rockwell front axle, power steering and a fish belly frame.
  7. Standing tall and is almost at the end of the line for the B model.
  8. Here is some info. As years went by, there were some changes even though the engine code stayed the same. Example ENDT went away and become EM6. https://www.bigmacktrucks.com/tutorials/article/78-mack-engine-codes/
  9. No one is offended. Just really surprised that someone at Band Box or others can't give a response.
  10. Nice job Bob! Sure had plenty of iron to look at.
  11. Damn it Boy! Keep both hands on the wheel! 10 and 2. Easy to remember. 10 and 2. What's next? Were you speeding too?
  12. Good bet would be to score a Midliner repair manual off ebay. Lots of info in factory books.
  13. Gee, haven't we done this before? Still no info from Bandbox? Jerry Keene has owned the place for 50 years so he might know something about the truck and its current location. http://www.bandboxclean.com/bandboxcleaners_005.htm
  14. International is the base for the CAT trucks that they are running. Not much of a leap to go with Navistar products.
  15. Golly, Volvo Mack could have a pretty good business for heritage parts if they wanted.... Nice score Barry!
  16. It appears to be a "Thermodyne" tag like this example. The Thermodyne name was given to Mack overhead valve engines either gasoline or diesel in that time period.
  17. Looks good with Thermodyne gasoline power under the hood.
  18. Truck #80 "BigFoot" 2007 Western Star is currently for sale at Liberty International. Stock #15019 https://www.libertyinternationaltrucks.com/used-trucks.htm
