When should you have a gold dog?

Recommended Posts

Ok here my question, sleepwalker ask me this. I have a e9 engine Mack transmission, Mack axles but newsy air suspension. Is this why I do not have a gold dog!

I would guess that would be a gold dog truck, as that would be a "pedigree drivetrain", but your suspension comment has me wondering..........hmmmmmm

Hit wrong button,didn't get to finish.

All Maxidynes were painted gold until Mack had to quit using the gold engine paint in late '79 but continued with the gold dog signifying Maxidyne power until '81 when the Econodyne engines began production. Then all Macks had chrome dogs again until the Elite package CH and CL trucks had gold dogs again,roughly '93 or so. Then about a year or so later Mack brought back the gold dog to signify an all Mack pedigree drivetrain and continues to do so .

to my understanding I am probebly wrong only Mack Maxidynes had gold dogs in Australia and only for the first few years of the Maxidyne run just show something different. My 81 R model has all Mack running gear with a Maxidyne motor but no gold dogs as most dont here at all except for the later model CH onwards I think

Suspension is what makes a chrome one even in the older models. All Mack EVERYTHING IS GOLD DOG!

I'm am definitely not sure if they did away with it. I'm sure they have by now. Especially with Volvo owning them.

Mikes got the idea problem is Mack was weird about the gold dogs in the 90's-2000's, my 93 CH had the gold dog but my 04 Granite did not, both all Mack, more so on the Granite really (camelback versus Hendrickson air ride,labelled mack). I have been thru this a few times, my 84 Superliner had a gold dog, a buddy's mid 90's RD also had one but others did not. A Mack corporate guru told me the reason the Granite didn't have it in 04 was that no Granite had a gold dog, shortly after a friend got one and bam gold on the hood. No real rhime or reason to it.

They still come with the gold bulldog if they have all Mack components. That is one thing Volvo did not kill yet.
