Howdy From Milton Pa


Recommended Posts

Just purchased a 1965 B615...will take delivery by next Saturday! (hopefully)

Once she gets here, expect tons of questions! Everything I know about old Macks (not much)

I learned here in the last two weeks.


I've delivered a few loads of steel to Milton Steel, haven't been there in a while though.

Producer of poorly photo-chopped pictures since 1999.

Thanks for making me feel welcome...I have been reading post after post after post trying to learn!

Truck should be here Friday...After making sure the brakes are adequate, I will drive around a big parking lot across the street from my house...then take it out on the back roads till I get comfortable and think I can safely make it up my driveway!

Gotta buy some chocks and a fire extinguisher first...then spend the next few days getting the cobwebs and "farm" stuff/smell outta the cab...followed by a good under carriage steam cleaning...then the fun begins...

I know I will need 3/4 drive sockets...big impact wrench, bigger compressor, sand blaster...

...wait, this is gonna get expensive! ;-)

I am sure I will be asking plenty of questions!
