I was successful in getting my LT running! An oil change, some fresh filters and fuel, new batteries, and she fired right up. Not bad after sitting for about a decade.

Should be able to get some pictures up soon. The show season is definitely beckoning.

I got brave and started fiddling with those valve stems. It turns out that they are extensions, I'm not sure why they wouldn't take air, but my plan of action is to replace them with new ones (hopefully with a different design) and go from there.

Beautiful truck!!!

I thought you were in the early stages of restore, not the end. Looks fantastic.

Can't help with the tire valve.

Thanks.

Sorry for the confusion. The background that I have on the truck is that my father bought it restored, he died when I was eleven, and I inherited it then. I've only just started playing around with it, as college has eaten up most of my funds since then, and since I'm done with school, I can spend a few (very few) bucks on the old gal.

I have sent out to the Mack Museum for more information about the chassis number, I'm looking forward to learning more about the history of my truck.

I do plan on trying my hand at restoration, but this truck is hopefully a long way from needing that again.

that truck sure looks familiar,do you know the previous owner's name? It sure looks like one I've seen in a book somewhere,had Osborne on the door if I remember right.

Same truck.  You probably saw it at the ATHS National in Springfield, MA a couple of years ago.

It doesn't cost anything to pay attention.

That is a beauty!  I really like that color, it's a little different than most but very classy. 

The problems we face today exist because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by the people who vote for a living.

The government can only "give" someone what they first take from another.
