A model parts source?

Recommended Posts

That's good to hear. There is a local glass shop that I've done business with that can do the flat glass. Guy has been doing it for 40 years, and is really reasonable.

That last problem is mine. I need a cab. Otherwise I am going to be really good at welding. That one looks more solid then mine.

This is in Black Bear Idaho the ad is for the ashtray (!) but he has a photo of the A Model he's parting out. Cab looks complete and solid. Paul

Finding engine parts for the END 510 Mack Diesel is very frustrating it is for me anyway. I bought some rings for 510 gas engine that I think will work ,the diesel has 1 more ringIf your base for the radiator bulldog is intact you are lucky. I think they were made just for the A-Model B and L-Models are not the same. People want the Bulldog and rip it off anyway possible. E-Model cabs are basicaly the same but front tin is A-model specific. Good Luck Joe D.

Yes lanova parts seem extinct. I am thankful mine actually runs. How well is yet to be determined. I have just been tearing it down and spending hours upon hours cleaning off dirt and rust. The grill is completely torn down and under restoration. I emailed the idaho guy to find out exactly what chassis that A is.

I have had a very hard time finding parts for my Lanova. My mechanic bought a spare motor off of Roger Gerhart, but still need to have 8 valves made. He had to get a part for the air compressor made in Mexico. He has been working on the LFT on and off since November of 2010, but finally has it running. It should be at Macungie. I will post pictures of it after it makes its appearance there. I have an A20 parts truck, but it is a flat head gas and is very rusty. I did use some brake parts off of it for my 405A because the postal service lost the originals when I sent them to be rebuilt. Good Luck. Mike

Mine is also a wood floor, obviously home done. Always thought it replaced wood. I guess I have to track down one of those too.

Another source for rubber products is www.diamondtrubber.com Mr Gib Epling Caldwell Ohio 43724 740-732-6056

They started as Diamond T and have expanded to Federal, Mack, and some others. If you have the old part they can make you a new one for almost everything.
