  1. 1960 B73 with low miles. 20 speed transmission 220 Cummins 16/44 axles Double frame Tires 80% restored 4 years ago Drivable Black and red color History from mack trucks 4th owner Email or call/text for pictures. Trgshamrock@yahoo.com or 281 795 6346 Truck located in Northern Michigan.
  2. I have 2 APE pumps that came off Mack engines. Pumps are good for rebuild First one is 6BB-900-5614-A6 Second is 6BB-900-4494-A3 Located in northern Michigan. Email me for pictures and other tag info. Asking for best offer Trgshamrock@yahoo.com or call/text. 281 795 6346
  3. The 1693 425 or 380 HP engine was a great engine. Only problem now is that the parts are hard to come by even at distributor level and there are not that many guys around that know how to work on them. I worked at a cat dealer for 10 years and have only adjusted the valves on one. I actually have a 1693 in storage that was "running". If your going to get parts i would recommend genuine Cat, sucks but with that engine you get what you pay for when it comes to parts on that old iron.
  4. I have it already on the Mack Museum list. I contacted them a while ago and they gave me the correct wiring harness,assembly info and original dealer who sold the truck. Rockford Mack (Illinois) was the dealer. The folks at the Mack museum are great people, make sure you give and extra cash that you can to keep their support
  5. For sure its the B Series of the 60's. My favorite line up though is the late 80's to early 90's Michigan Special Mack Superliners with the 3406B Cat power!
  6. Yes you are correct. It is a NON turbocharged engine. The horsepower is probably around 190HP to the ground. It runs great. I resealed all 3 heads and installed new fuel supply lines.
  7. My 1960 B73 Project first came to my eyes back in 1981 when I was 5 yrs old. At the time a neighbor of mine restored the truck and used it everyday for hauling logs and pulp wood. Growing up I told myself one day I am going to own that very truck and restore it to the same condition as I first came across it. If you notice the name of the truck is ‘The Fugitive”. It is named that because the truck just will not surrender to the scrap yard or junk yard. The original owner named it that and the truck since being built in 1960 has been called its nickname. My B73 is the first truck I drove at the age of 12. It has sentimental value to me and is the reason why I chose this truck over any other B model that I came across for sale in restorable condition. The truck is powered by a NH220 Cummins with a 20 speed Quadraplex transmission. The miles on the truck are 165,145 miles (that I believe are original). It features a Wet Kit/PTO set up and has the heavy duty specifications of a double frame, 14,000 lb front axle and 44,000 lb rear axles and suspension where installed in the late 70’s. Top speed is at 54 to 58 miles per hour. I currently use this truck for moving forestry equipment with a 35 ton low boy or a 20 ton tag trailer and for show. I tend to keep this truck in my family by passing it on to my son Vaughn when I am old and gray, thus preserving a piece of Mack history and a piece of family history as well.
  8. Here are some pictures of "The Fugitive". Named the truck that because it was always escaping the scrap yard. Feel free to email me if you want to know more about the truck. Pictures have Lake Superior in the back ground
  9. I have a 20 spd transmission, NH220 Cummins (resealed heads, tune up, all new hoses, lubes, oil leaks repaired), 44K rear ends, double frame and a wet kit on it. I am trying to get it in that Watts Mack Calender. I bought all my parts from Watts.
  10. Here are some "Updated" pictures of my 1960 B73. The truck is about 80-90% finished now. Just ordered my last parts this morning from Watts. This truck is going to be used not very often but will pull a 35 Ton matching red low boy.
  11. The objective for EPA 07 is to have NOX reduced to 1.0 g/bhp-hr and in 2010 it will be 0.2 g/bhp-hr. Basically the air it will put out will be cleaner then the air you breathe is the objective. You cannot run any type of fuel, ONLY the ultra low sulfer and the oil has to be low ash, if not you will clog your DPF, which is still a mystery on how it is going to be cleaned. The filter is cordorite material, it would surprise me to see trucks missing these filters due to the scrap market metal price. At 6K a pop you know someone will be ripping them off. Cansaco Brothers (if i remember right) out of Texas has the pipeline of the low sulfer fuel (AKA Bush's buddies--no joke),
  12. Your further off to just go new, i have a few complete engines but why avoid the hassle of old electrical parts, they could work today and quit tomorrow. The shut off celenoids are a dealer stocked item, i have never ran a cross a dealer that didn't have one on the shelf.
  13. For 2007 ALL engines will have a After Treatment Device or ATD. Fuel is going from 500 parts per million to 15. and Oil is going to less then 1 percent Sulfer content. The ATD will be required to be cleaned at 100,000 to 150,000 miles (depending on the engine MFG) and can be cleaned 9/10 times before you have to purchase a new one. The filter is about $6200.00. You cannot remove the filter from the chassis, it is built in to register fault codes. I designed the mechanical diagnostics for the 2007 Series 60 and assisted on the ATD diagnostics.
  14. Now that is a hell of a find! Looks like it is in very restorable shape.
