  1. I'd love to get enough of that group home to make one complete. What a beast that truck is. It is an engineering masterpiece. Maybe if I hit the lottery!
  2. A Detroit, LEAKING? Who would have thought such a thing...? I thought, "yeah no kidding"? when I read the title...good to see it's only fuel. Fill the new one and spin it on. Do as suggested above and you will be fine. It worked for me.
  3. Good for you. That is one sharp truck for sure! Worth saving and man what a nice rig. They really made them nice didn't they.
  4. I'm with eddeere...Green and Yellow to match the tractor. Looks sharp by the way. Seriously though, unless you have a scheme for your collection, why not the original colors MAck put on them? That's my plan. ORANGE!!! All over.
  5. BIG!! I've designed some smaller versions of a gantry crane like that. The one I remember most was used for moving bundles of rebar at a place that manufactured it. That is one big crane. Cool.
  6. That's tough news. Sorry to hear. Never worry about burdening others. Leaning on friends in time of need is what friends are for. Prayers for you and the family. God Bless. Greg
  7. Merry Christmas everyone. God Bless all of you. Greg
  8. Well be sure to let me know who and where. Those sneakers make a classic truck like that POP!!!
  9. I assume you can no longer buy the kind of tires that are on that 815 now...maybe I'm wrong (let me know!!!!). I love those! They are cool. Some of the Mack books on the old trucks show factory photos with them. Cool stuff.
  10. I ordered the quadbox version just now....cool as hell.
  11. Merry Christmas all...and Hohoho to Santa's helper above...Wow!
  12. This is GREAT! I'd love to see a registry for all models personally. Why not!?! I'll send in my info at some point soon. I'd love to see another of the 4 made with the B-815 I'm working on. They are SN 1228-1231 if memory serves. I see 1232 up there...Just one away. So close. Thanks for the effort. Love it!
  13. Great plan. It's worth preserving it like it is. If mine was that straight I'd do the same. Cool. Keep us posted. I hope to get a place of my own where I can work on mine more regularly as well as get it inside. Thanks again for sharing. Greg
  14. Hey that's an awesome ride. I haven't had any time to spend on BMT until lately and missed this thread. Looks sharp. Love that it has the 864 in it still. The tin work looks pretty solid from the pictures. Are the floors solid? Anyway, enjoy it. Good to see another 815 on here!! Greg
  15. Too bad about the shed and tools. That sucks. I should probably look at my policy and see if my stuff is covered too. I buy Craftsman stuff for the guarantee. I've never been turned away on it yet. Me and the manager will be having a heated discussion the day that does happen. Nice looking ladies!!
  16. Prostate cancer hits close to home for me. Dad came up with it when he was about 56. He has high blood pressure (as do I) and the doc ran the PSA test on him for good measure as part of an annual check up to make sure he was managing the blood pressure and such. It was caught early and he beat it thankfully. I've been getting an annual physical since I was 40 that include a PSA test and the other part I really hate but...If you are over 50, get a physical every year and have it checked. If your dad or uncle has had it, start at 40. It is detectable and curable, but you need to look for it. As with Hatcity, it may never give you symptoms until its started to move around. I am praying for Hatcity now and I also pray that any of you old farts out there that don't manage your own health, start to do so. We need to spread the word to our friends and family to help each other out. God bless you all and especially Hatcity.
  17. Hey guys and gals. Happy thanksgiving. I hope you all had a nice day with someone that makes you happy don't forget to thank God for the blessings you have. Greg
  18. Thanks for the update FWD. Cancer is a rotten bastard, no two ways about it. Prayers on the way for sure. I've witnessed miracles in my life time so stay positive and eat right. Read up on the cancer fighting foods and also what to avoid. Every edge helps. God Bless.
  19. Wow. Lots of good stuff to study there. Even an example of the rare B-815. Nice.
  20. I have the same problem. I have just run it without a filter...:( for lack of a better solution.
  21. Missed this post. Did anyone wind up with it? I'd like to see pics of it myself.
  22. Yeah that is BAD ASS in camo! Nice looking truck.
  23. pretty neat rig. What do we know about its specifications? Thanks for posting
