  1. Walk softly and carry a BAR.
  2. That is a nice looking truck. I like the looks of the old split wind shield trucks.
  3. Vlad, thanks very much for taking the time to type your story and post pictures. Very interesting and beautiful country.
  4. It would probably be a good idea to find a parts truck for all the things you need. Good used grille pieces are few and far between though.
  5. Even though the Mack Museum is closed they MAY answer an email. Please send a donation if they do assist you. mack.museum@macktrucks.com
  6. I am quite certain the disconnect is manually operated only by the red knob on mine. I would find the fuses or circuit breakers and check for voltage. You never did show the back side of your solenoid. What is there?
  7. I finally remembered to get you some pictures of my 1989 MH. It sat for 8 or 10 years and needed an injection pump, injectors, turbo, air receiver and of course tire$ and batterie$. It appears you are luckier than I was. One picture is the front of master disconnect switch and the other is the back of it. The red knob controls it. The other picture is the back of it. I took the picture of the knob with the camera resting on the left front tire and based on your pictures this is about where the solenoid you posted is located. Like Vlad posted the other day, the disconnect kills everything
  8. Mike, the piece I have is the passenger side or right hand side. Send me a PM with your address and I will send it if you want it. It is in good shape.
  9. On my 1989 MH the electrical panel is in front of the passenger seat behind a panel cover.
  10. Mike, I think I have the head light surround. I will get back to you on a PM. I thought no one would ever want it. It is yours for shipping if it is what I think it is. EDIT: Mike, it is good to see you back on here.
  11. Ed. That is a great looking B and place that you have. I have a 1940 B that my father bought used in 1951. I love the sound of the old putt putts and spent many hours on it as a kid. That is my grandson on it.
  12. Very nice. Has a rugged look like the old power wagons.
  13. My favorite that he starred in was Centennial where he played the part of the French trapper, Pasquinel. I never thought he was a good actor but played the trapper well. I have seen Centennial several times and am due to see it again soon. RIP, Robert Conrad
  14. If you run for long time on flat ground, does it over heat? The symptoms are similar to my VW diesel when I a bad head gasket. I tried all the remedies you mentioned but with no success. The coolant system gets a air bound from the gases. Let us know what you find.
  15. $27. I just paid $12.97 each for a pair of brass screws in J.D. carb.
  16. I would be interested in some free post hole seeds.
  17. I still get pissed off easily about Vietnam. In my opinion, too many military decisions were made in D.C. by civilians sitting in an air conditioned office, wearing a suit and tie with their feet propped up on their desk. They did not have a clue what was actually going on and the conditions endured. We had enough air power to wipe them off the face of the earth.
  18. In case you did not see or could not open the steam club attachment here are some details. 4014 is touring again and here are some of her stops. Maybe some of you will be lucky enough to see her. Display locations include: Oct. 2-3: Provo, Utah Oct. 7: Las Vegas, Nev. Oct. 10-11: Greater Los Angeles Area Oct. 18: Tucson, Ariz. Oct. 21-22: El Paso, Texas
  19. In May on the way to Reno, my friend and I stopped in Cheyenne to try to see 4014 but it was in the steam shop which is in the middle of the Cheyenne rail yard. No access was available but we went to a near by park and took some pictures of 4004 which is on permanent display there. As you can see, it was a little damp that day. Some time since then I joined the U.P. Steam club and I recently got an update on the travels of 4014. It is attached. Union Pacific Steam Club Update No.docx
  20. Bob, on the way to Reno my friend and I journeyed out of our way to go to the Nevada Railway Museum in Carson City. It is a nice museum with some neat old things.
  21. I rode the J611 here in VA a few years ago. I forget where we went but it was pricey and I remember being in Manassas, VA. I found a picture and it says 2016. I think we rode to Front Royal and then returned to Manassas.
  22. With the wipers above the windshield it is prior to 52/53. Is it a WC 26 or 28? It looks like a 26 to me. Where in Montana is it? That is sure a neat old truck. Thanks for posting.
  23. Your best bet is to find a junked MH and get what you need. I could have probably gotten that for you up until a couple of years ago but the cab I had found has been scrapped. Good luck. Where are you?
  24. Being in Montana I would expect a shop in winter is pretty much a necessity. Even if no heat but out of the wind will probably make a big difference. Good luck with the project.
