Popular Post r686st Posted August 8, 2013 Popular Post Share Posted August 8, 2013 Back in April bought the truck and a 1972 Palmer dump trailer to use in my construction business. Since then it's only left the shop once to steam clean it and do some test driving. I've got a small fortune tied up in it but I keep telling myself it's going to be worth it. So far the parts I've purchased: trunnion bushings, fifth wheel bushings, upper and lower isolators, side spacer, torque rods, rear shocks and frame studs with hardware, cab shocks, front shocks, exhaust elbow, stack, exhaust brackets, front axle bumpstop, battery retaining rod, clutch pad, floormats, aluminum foot rest, cb and antenna, 8 recap drive tires, 2 virgin steer tires, 4 aluminum rims for the rear two axles, rebuilt the back axle, fresh fluid and filters throughout, turbo, heads, throttle cable, kill cable, clearance light, steering boot for the firewall, 4 brake drums, 8 brake shoes, 4 spring kits, all new bearings and seals at the rear axles, longer inner nuts, two slack adjusters, 4 S-cams, aluminum half fenders, aluminum hydraulic tank, chrome front bumper, hydraulic pump and plenty more to come. Is there anything else you'll recommend to check before I put it on the road?BTW: The green Mack is my dad's 1987 R686ST. 8 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
