Wasteaway Posted November 23, 2016 Share Posted November 23, 2016 About to pull the trigger on a decent RD from afar and since I have almost no knowledge of Mack trucks save for moving snow with a friends Granite a couple years ago (love that Mack transmission for its reverse) and some off-road work with a B81 when I was a kid.....then there was riding shotgun "learning" how to shift a quad box by watching for hours as me and this old timer plowed snow.....I have only owned 2 Cummins powered internationals with excellent results. Back to the subject.......This truck needs some cosmetics but seems real nice mechanically, excellent service records and quite clean with a heavy single frame. Much better for us up here in the rust belt. So what should I know about this truck before I spend the coin and have it shipped? Mack 350 engine Eaton Fuller 9LL with OD Rubber block suspension (looks like hendrickson or "Bolster" suspension) 53K Mack rears 4.42 ratio I'm not hearing much negative save for a warning that these engines are noted for eating cams and the stock cam is (was) the only replacement This truck will be a septic pumper. Door to door daily work with brief stretches of 70mph highway runs to and from the sewer plant. Any free advice appreciated Rich Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
