garythomak Posted July 21, 2005 Share Posted July 21, 2005 Hi everyone,I have been in Alaska for the last 25 years and have semi-retired, moving to West Virginia where I grew up. I am cutting timber to suppliment the retirement check and am looking at a tandem 1971 Mack that is for sale. It is a dump but the with a steel bbed. The motor was using a copule of gallons of oil a day and then started knocking. I have the VIN number (U685ST4866) but can't seem to find the model or much about the truck. On the door it has a chasis number U685. The guy that is selling it doesn't know much about it, he gave me the VIN from the title but said there wasn't a GVW weight, just 59,900 weight which he said was what it had been licensed for.I would appreiciate any help on finding out the model number, etc. IHe did say the motor was a 237 and a 300 would fit in it. I would appreciate any suggestions on putting a used engine in it or rebuilding the old one. I will only be using it to move my equipment (Cat 955H track loader, about 12 ton).Thanks,Gary firstname.lastname@example.org Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
