1951 Mack LJ

1980 RWS747 with 350BC3

Recommended Posts

Time for this superliner to find a new home. I am located in Washington State. The truck sat a lot for the last 6 to 8 years is what the previous owner said. Has some damage to the hood and some minor rust on the cab. However the rear suspension looks new and the rear brake drums/ brake linings are newer. The engine was swapped out with a 350 Big cam but no idea the mileage. Has 10 speed fuller trans. Needs wiper valve replaced. Truck runs and drives nice. I have the truck listed on craigslist for $4200 but willing to give a member on BMT a better deal.

If this truck does not find a new home in the next couple weeks is there anyone looking for parts.

It looks to have a lot of potential and not bad for the money either.

If it was closer to Illinois I would be interested. Seems like all the deals come up half way across the country :(

Yes I know, but having to travel close to a thousand miles to inspect a truck that's not been driven in 6 to 8 years and just jump in and head home is not for me.. ;) it would be much easier if it were closer .. My father has stories I've heard of flying a few guys out to drive mixers home and when the got to their destination the drums on the trucks had been chipped out with sledge hammers... From the outside...nothing like the pictures he had received... Needless to say they flew back home

Not saying this would be the case with this listing..... Just something to think about ...lotta miles from home And lotta extra cash to travel

I am not sure on the rearends. The rear shackles are labeled Rayco. I forget the name of the type suspension that it is but consists of four leaf spring packs. The springs still have stickers on them so I believe they were replaced before it was parked. I have a few more pictures of the truck that I can post again. I have been busy so I have not worked on the truck much lately. Did manage to get the dash lights working. I still plan on changing the engine oil and filters. It could use some new steer tires.

Are you sure the Cummins got swapped in? Sure it's not a factory Cummins truck? All I've ever heard that suspension called is 4 spring. It looks good, man. I wish it wasn't so far away.

Jake,it woulda been a factory Cummins truck,just not a 350. a 747 would have been a 290 or 300 Cummins. with the 350 it woulda been a 767.

I think suspension is Reyco 101 or 102.Not a bad suspension for over the road its lighter than walking beam or Camelback but not good for off road as it does not articulate well. Joe D.

I am quite surprised to not have any offers on the Mack yet. Usually get at least some low ball offers from the craigslist adds. I figured someone would have made an offer of $3400 and been driving themselves home in a superliner.

Guess I should have checked my E-mail on here. Looks like I did have some interest on here.

Sir, I would be interested in your truck, I recently bought a 40EF in Duvall, WA. The problem I have is getting it to TN. Thought about buying something around here and driving out there, but if I can buy your truck and find a trailer out there, load the 40EF and my car and drive it all back here, that would work for me. I have some experience with road trips and willing to take a chance. Any help you can provide me would be greatly appriecated. Plan on restoring the EF, but if anyone else would be wanting the Superliner I would willing to make a deal.

Fixed the wiper air valve and now the wipers are working good. New valve through the dealer was $154 but the three small O-rings that were tore up and missing cost about 50 cents each.

Looks to have a Tachograph in it? That's interesting for a "newer" vintage of truck. Typically seen in a 50-60's era truck.

Most likely a gas company truck with reyco suspension and a tachograph. Our R came from a gas company down south and had a tachograph.
