Calling All Mack E Model Owners

Recommended Posts

It's official, the Mack E Model Registry is under way with a grand total of just seven Es in Australia and the US listed so far (apologies to those who have read this on ATHS).

If you own an E or know someone who does please drop me a line by email or private message.

Once I have a decent number of trucks listed (say 50), I will make the registry available to whoever is interested. The format will follow that of the B Model register and the E register will be available on the net somewhere in pdf format.

Thanks to Lee Haeberlein, Tom Freeman, Bob Gilbreath, David Waits and Mike Harbison for their help getting this off the ground and to Barry for making this a sticky!

Cheers

Andy

Hi guys

Just to keep you up to date, the registry is now up to 21 E models listed including four Type 75s. There's many more out there so hopefully I can report 50 listings in the near future.

Any leads most appreciated.

Cheers

Andy

Hi Andy

Check with Barry on this one but I think Gerhardts (where the annual Fall Mack show in Lititz Pa is held) has an E model in the yard ( I think it is a dump). I am sure Barry knows the Gerhardt guy and can maybe find out more about it.

That will make 2 dozen.

Thanks mate, I'll see if I can get some contact details so I can do the hard work instead of bothering Bazza.

Cheers

Hey Andy;

I wanna get in on this,but I won't commit until I have title in hand for my Mack. No matter how well a deal is set up,there's always the possibility of change before it's complete. But you'll be getting my submission as soon as possible.

Andy,

I have some :mack1: 'E' models

1948 EQX1D 4975 Dump Chassis

1945 EHT1S 3258 EH Tractor with the heavy front axle

1950 EQX1D 9854 Dump chassis - restored

1950 EQX1D 10070 Dump chassis - restoration started

1950 EQX1D 10071 Dump chassis

1948 EQX1D 6351 Dump chassis with a Baldwin wrecker

I noticed the comment regarding the 'E' model at Gerhardt's yard, so I included the entire 'E' fleet. Some running, some not.

Thanks for your work on the registry.

Hey Speed and Ol' Dog

Thanks for your posts guys, great to hear from you. Been a bit quiet of late as I've been busy with other things but the registry is well into the 30s so it's still making progress!

If anyone sees an E at a show or wherever, go and ask the owner if he knows of the registry as there's a very high chance he won't!

Cheers and thanks again guys.

Andy,

Did you receive the copy of the E manual I sent you?

Hi David

Happy New Year, mate. I did receive the manual thank you just before Christmas. We then were away till after New Year's and I only re-discovered it last night! I looked at it and went, Oh #%&* I haven't thanked David for that yet! Past six weeks has been full on and I'm back full-time at work so everything has stopped which is why I haven't been on here at all! Tim Maikshilo sent me an email as well and I haven't had the chance to reply for a chat yet (sorry Tim!).

Sorry, mate. Thank you, I can learn a heck of a lot from what you sent me. The license plate is very cool too, it'll go up with the other metal signs I have around the place.

Saw a magnificently original EH when I was in Melboorne in late November. Had a huge Mack brass plaque on the fuel tank. This truck was my first non-Type 75 E!

Cheers and thanks again. What can I send you?

Hi Andy;

Guess you've heard the Mack EH deal fell through,so I won't be getting into the registry. I'm trying to find this truck a good home anyhow,though,and whoever buys it(rescues it) I'll pass on the information and try to get the new owner to log on,so it'll get registered somehow.

Best of luck with the registry-hope you get all the E models out there covered! I'll keep all you BMT folks informed on my search for a truck.

I am glad it made it down to you, I was begining to worry that it got lost in the system.

I have also been very busy too, I have not had much time since before Christmas to post but things are getting back to normal so, I should have more time again. Just as soon as the weather gets better I'm getting the ENF510 engine back together and hope I can get my pumper on the road by late spring.

The license plate I sent you was from our state flag, the Georgia State Patrol (State police) used them on all of their cars for years. About 3 years ago they quit using them and the surplus was sold to the public, it's hard to find a truck around here that does not have one on the front.

Look in the back of the manuel at the pages that have the accessorys, the grill guard looks really good! I have never seen one or even a picture of and E with one, if I ever find one I am going to try and buy it for my pumper.

David

Cheers and thanks again. What can I send you?

Sorry, I just re read your post again and I saw your last line, I could use a case of Foster's, A good Cuban cigar

and a loose woman!

If you dont want to spend the money to get all that to me it is ok, just knowing I helped someone is enough in return for me.

I hope it arived OK, I packaged it up as well as I could since I knew it would be handeld alot during the journey.

Speed, sorry to hear the deal fell through. Good luck with your continuing hunt. I wish Es were as easy to find down here as they appear to be up there.

David, I will send something up to you anyway mate, but do you seriously want some Foster's? It's shocking stuff! :pat: Postage ofr a loose woman might be a bit steep and Australia Post frowns on flammable products so the cigars are off (do you insure yours for fire...). I'll think of something!

Cheers

Just kidding about the Foster's! It is sold up and and I have had it before, I did not like it.

Do not worry about sending me anything, like I said before, I am glad I was able to help out.

Hey,Andy;

Did you get my info on my EH? I'm sure I sent it,but I don't see the message,so maybe the internet ate it. Let me know if you need me to re-send it.

Thanks!

Yep, I got it James, thanks mate. I think you posted it in the Oh My! post in the General section. I think I posted a thank you there but in case I didn't, thank you!

When's the big recovery day?

Cheers

Andy

:SMOKIE-LFT: Not 100% sure but I'm shooting for around March 10th. Maybe sooner if the money comes through sooner. I'll have to sell my car too,to have enough money to get the truck and get some work done on it before I bring it home. I did the math on it,and I'll be spreading it pretty thin without the car sale;probably won't be able to get the shift knobs or mudflaps I wanted, to make a grand entrance when I get home,would have to go with painted mirrors instead of stainless,standard headlight bulbs instead of Halogens,. I was planning to sell my Fairmont wagon anyway. That'll bring me up to where I'll be able to get the accessories I want,all the service items I'll need for it,and the materials to build a hella-big knuckle boom for it,and hopefully get an air compressor pump for it before I head back to Elko in it. Anybody out there need an economy car? :P:SMOKIE-RT:

Hey Andy;

How do I access the E-model Registry? I've already been contacted by a couple of members who found my name there,but I can't find the Registry.

Thanks!!

There's nothing on the net yet, mate, and there won't be until I have a decent number of entries (50) to make it worthwhile.

I reckon the guys who have contacted you have done so through here or have picked your address out of the several E-group emails I have sent to those who are on the registry. But that's what BMT and the registry are all about - bringing Mack people together.

Cheers

That's cool,Andy-I was just curious. Always good to hear from other :mack1: lovers. I'm just hoping getting the Registry up and running doesn't cut you out of time to enjoy YOUR :mack1: Trucks! I know what a "time vacuum" the forums can be if I don't make myself get up and walk away once in a while. :P

Hey,T Man;

Welcome to the gathering. What drivetrain does your EH have? Now that he's not a wrecker anymore,what does he do?

My '45 EH has been a dump truck but spent most of it's life pulling a lowboy hauling heavy equipment. It has an EN354 gas motor with an updraft carb(a real pain to work on! :P ),a 5 speed with a direct 5th,and a under/direct/overdrive Brown Lipe aux. transmission that was added early on (for the additional low gear,according to the original owner),and a 6.86 rear end ratio. I recently added a jib crane to help me load metal on trailers or on the flatbed I'll be installing in a couple of months. I'll be leaving the 5th wheel on it for now though.

Okay,your turn!

Speed

Thanks Diamond T man, that's great. I've fired a pm at ya.

Sorry I disappeared for a while there. Been busy at work and at home (Bedford still neglected) so have kept my head down as forums can be, as Speed says, time vacuums! However, I'm back into it. Got a promotion here at work but am still waiting for the pay rise. LOL.

The E registry hasn't moved since I last posted on here but it's still current, alive, active and yearning for more entries!

"New" BMT looks bloody sensational!

Cheers

Andy

Jeeze,Andy-is this all the E models that still exist?? :o I saw it written that the E was among the most common models :mack1: ever made;I wonder if it was also the most ofter sacrificed to scrap,yard tractor-conversions,saw-mill duty etc. too! How can we entice more E owners into our ranks? Maybe a little reward for owners that bring in new members,a shift knob,bulldog,something :mack1: oriented? Of course I'd disqualify myself from that. But something like that might get the other :mack1: owners a little more interested in checking out that ol' truck in somebody's yard they drive by every week and kinda wonder about.
