That rust looks like you may be close to the ocean.

 

we have for the last few years but used to live nearly 300 miles inland before that and it had bad rust before we shifted near the coast

I don't trust the part numbers on that RM6866RS break down.

I'd expect the roof to be a 165QS519A.

Rood vent rubber 25RU354 with 812AXF rubber "key".

http://www.wattstruckcenter.com/store/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=144&search=roof

We used to offer the roof vent under two different part numbers, one beige (23QU45P3) and the other silver gray. I imagine Volvo only supplies silver gray now.

Rocker panels:

After providing your Mack dealer with your truck's model and serial number, they should be able to accurately research all the parts you need.

After going thru the Watts pages I relize I need the sills not the rockers 
How did you find the Mack parts number off that page ????

thanks in advance

Paul

G'day Paul. Have you considered a galvanised cab? They usually go for between 3-4g and it will last you a long long time. I could keep an eye out for ya. 

Let me know how you go with the rust if that's the way you decide to go.

Just pull empty trailer. Once you get them loaded is when you start using fuel!

Was informed today by a ex Mack Australian man the cab is the same and there was templates they would lay on the cab to drill the holes in the right spot 
And it takes two weeks to do a complete cab change into a new cab drilling the holes etc and mounting all the old in the new and painting

Paul

Paul, for the record, the RM cab and yours are not the same. The cowl of the RM is set up for a steel hood, while your cowl is for a fiberglass hood. So when we sold service cabs, two different part numbers.

Sounds like driving across I-80 in Wyoming. I used to stick my hand out the window to see if I was moving. I ran a R-685 Mack 237 5 speed twice a month from Hazleton,Penna. to Seattle,Washington  loaded to 73,000 lbs both ways.Great truck got me out of the hole after I totaled my other truck,this was early 1980's.

Quite the run for a 237!!    terry:D
