58GreenMackB Posted September 3, 2016 Share Posted September 3, 2016 As of Monday, I am now the proud owner of a 1958 Mack B61 single axle tractor. I have a few general questions and I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction on a few things: Where can I find manuals for the B61? I have found wiring diagrams and other information on this forum, but want a good service manual to better understand the mechanics. I'm in need of the following parts: One of the shock connecting rods. Mine gave up on the way home and was slightly bent by the time I realized it let loose. Tachometer Cable. I have the cable, but the center metal piece that turns is missing. Is there a good place to source used parts from? Does anyone have any advice on getting the front shocks restored? I have the old lever type units and have seen various companies that service them for GM, Ford, Etc., but wanted to see if anyone knew of a good company to have them serviced/rebuilt. Last thing I am looking into only because I do not want it to get worse is restoring the steering wheel. I have an older Corvette that I had someone restore years ago. It came out looking brand new and I could not figure out how he did it. Is there someone that restores the old Mack wheels? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Love this truck and my goal is to get it restored back to its former glory. If anyone else has any additional input for me as a new owner, I would appreciate that as well. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
