  1. Thanks Gregg, I had hoped he didn't sell it. DJ bought #276 and #154, a 1958 B-61 from us. He also bought the last 2 trailers we had built. '03 Ebys #s T-302 and T-303. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  2. That was #276 Gregg. What was it doing there, was it for sale? Ron Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  3. Thank you for all the Birthday wishes. Sorry we didn't make it to Macungie this year, we missed seeing a lot of good friends. Ron Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  4. Wish Victoria a belated Happy Birthday for me ! Ron Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  5. My memory get's a little fuzzy sometimes, maybe kscarbel can remember for sure? Weren't the first motors in th MHs made by Trico? The wedge shaped motors like they used in the last "F" models. Much better motors in my opinion. I do remember for sure there was a change in how the arms attached between between early and late style motors. The first ones the main arm slid on with a clip that was spring loaded. The clip went behind the splined nub on the motor to retain it. Later ones had a split main arm with an allen headed clincher bolt and an acorn nut on a threaded shaft to retain it. Needless to say it wasn't going to fall off!

  6. I did find one at a place called find it parts #63QT413. Are you sitting down? $530.20 and it's not gold plated! Ron
  7. Gregg, That sounds like some BS I might have started! In all seriousness I did convert one of our MHs over to an electric wiper motor. I said electric motor because I only did the LH (driver's side). As far as I'm concerned that's the only one you need anyway unless you have a RooBar on your truck. I used, as you said, a wiper motor off an MR. I couldn't begin to tell you in detail how I did it but it worked quite well. The one I did is in a truck not to far from me. Maybe if the need ever arrises I could ask the owner if Icould remove it and take some pictures of it for you guys? It was quite involved and I actually only made two of them. One for a spare, and then as time permitted was going to make electric motors for all of them. Never got around to installing but the one of them. I like a challenge and was quite pleased with how it turned out. I even thought hey why not make one for the RH side! Well with the duct work for the heater/air conditioner I gave up on that idea real fast! With the motor set up I made for the driver's there was probably only about a 1/4" cleareance between the electric motor and the cross shaft off the clutch pedal! Ron
  8. Not that I know of, Sprague devices is who made them, I don't whether they're still in business or not. Maybe someone can rebuild them? Ron

  11. Bob Honour from Matlack had something to do with the Centrimax filter too. I don't remember for sure where I saw it but I remember the Glacier name. It was either on one of the housings or an element at one time. Thank goodness they came up with this for the ESI plus service interval. The 58 qt. oil pan was a disaster in the making in my opinion. If it didn't crack, I'd worry about something hitting it. Ron
  12. I always thought WGB was one of the suppliers too. The Mack Co., I always thought had some pretty strong ties with the WGB Oil Clarifier Corp. of Kingston, NY Weren't they the ones the Mack Co. worked with to develop the full flow/bypass oil filter that was first used with the introduction of the END864 V8? Ron
  13. Ken, I don't think there was any difference in how easily the filters were to remove torque wise. I always thought it was just a difference in materials and in my opinion the Baldwin filters were stronger and wouldn't collapse as easy. That might be all different now for all I know. I can remember when the Mack filters used to vary from time to time. One time you'd order filters and they would be gold. The gold fuel filters would have different colored lettering on them (red for primary, green for secondary). Seemed like next time the filters would be different colors? Might have been whoever gave the Mack Co. the best shake that week (WGB, Fram, or Purolater)? The oil filters were always hard to get off, as I said above you had to use a little finesse getting them to break loose. The filters on hobby trucks I would imagine are even harder for the simple fact of how infrequent the filter changes are compared to when they were used in regular service. This is the wrench to use when removing the oil filters, this and a 1/2" drive long ratchet with a 1" extension. Ron
  14. Just looked, Watts Mack has them for $46.47 They also have the clip for the lock tumbler if you need one. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  15. I don't know if they're still available or not, they used to sell a kit that had 2 door key locks and an ignition switch tumbler so you could re-key them. Ron Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
