    Weight permits

    Anyone know how the divisible load permit works in suffolk county NY. I bought a truck that had a grandfathered permit and the guy was willing to give me the permit with the truck but i have no idea how to transfer it. any help will be appreciated. Also does anyone know what the gvw of a 2000 mack 688 is. i have no idea what rears are in it and the door stickers are rough. there is one sticker from a spring company which states the gvw is 66.000.

    Air Leak

    Hello all Today while i was hauling fill to a job site i noticed the air pressure gauge hovering around 70 psi and the red parking brake light came on. i pulled over and applied parking brake which allowed the tank to fill up over 110 psi. i released the parking brake and the tank dropped to just above 60 psi and wouldn't raise above that while driving. I limped home and now im wondering where to start. It seems the leak only happen when the parking brake is released. any ideas where to start? 2000 mack rd dump truck

    Air leak

    Yea i had to put some money when i first bought it . i'm a little annoyed at the shop i brought it to . I asked them to do a look over of the air brakes and they completely misses the huge lead. And hat city i'm going to replace in the am. I needed a truck to move fill and plow on the county roads during the winters. I got this thing for cheap and its actually in really good condition besides a few things.

    Air leak

    Hello All I just bought a 2000 mack 688 rd dump truck . while driving i noticed when i push the brakes the pressure drops in the tank rapidly. i went back to the yard and parked. when i push the brakes i hear a loud air lead. i traced it to the air relay . when i push the brakes a lot of air comes out from the side of the air relay . i was wondering if this is a bleed port of something. its kinda hard to see the whole valve so I'm just trying to get some info before i remove it. also i can't hear any other leaks while this thing bleeds cause its loud. thanks

    Mack Truck Frame

    So this could already be a topic but I'm in a rush. I've been looking for a 10 wheel dump truck and finally found one. I located a mack 686 which has a brand new motor and new tranny. Truck is in great condition until I looked at the frame and thankfully found that the frame between the rear drive axle is cracked length horizontally where the top of the rail bends inward. This is on both sides. I'm asking all you professionals on here can it be welded ? If not , is it cost effective to get both new rails or just the last 8 feet. I called pg adams and they asked if the frame curves under the cab and I had no idea. Like I said, the truck is in really great shape besides the frame and I can get it cheap. Any insight would be grateful.
