    The Mack Worth

    I have some very hip Brazilian Havaianas, everyone wears them to work in too... it'd take some time for me to get used to them. Hurts my toe crack. My mom calls them "tongs" .... silent 'h'... idk why... chinelo is what they call them in Brazil.
  4. One think I've never been able to understand is horsepower ratings... I used to drive a truck with 400 cummins same weight same hills as the E7-427hp that replaced it... what a joke. Either that 400 was actually a 600(which it wasn't) or the horsepower ratings on the newer electronic trucks was wildly exaggerated.

    Pictures of the Week

    Looks like a late 70's or early 80's r686... one intake is for turbo, the second is likely for the tip-turbine intercooler .

    Real Trucks Getting Dirty

    We had a landfill nearby that ran fleet of smoking (puff puff) R-model roll offs.... when I was ten years old, I thought Mack was the only truck manufacturer on the planet.

    Superpower for oversized loads

    Engine strong but because of automatic trans and emission rules, 1300 rpm at 90 km/h. When climbing shifting always too late and slow. Drops down to 1050 rpm, then shifts. At 1300 rpm 500 hp, and you seldom reach higher rpm. Old 14 l v8; 530 hp at 1500 rpm. Much faster with manual trans. I sold my 730 after 10 months John Hennige Eindhoven Norrd-Brabandt

    Superpower for oversized loads

    My Dutch trucker buddy says the 730 is rubbish.. transmission hunts constantly, never allows full power.

    E9 manifold leak

    Can you send a photo of your work? Is that rope easy to work with?
  14. I believe he's talking about 9 foot spreads on a three axle trailer. Allowed him to scale the weight with a single axle tractor.
