It doesn't cost anything to pay attention.

It has a Scania model DS8 (Mack designation E4-210). Great engine, like most, when properly maintained. The Scania centrifugal filter certainly kept the oil clean. No cartridge to buy, just clean it out and reinstall. It prompted us to create "Centrimax" for the Mack engines.

Morgan Millwork ran a huge fleet of R487P straight trucks on the east coast. They loved them.

Any information on the trans?

The transmission is an Allison automatic. They're bulletproof with proper maintenance, and parts/service are readily available.
