Hello everybody, My name is Robert and i love working on anything, and old junk.

I started young, My grandfather was a truck pusher for Butler drilling and later Mitchell energy and as a little kid seeing and riding in all the winch and pole trucks mostly Mack B and R series and a few Autocars are some of my earliest and best memories. Now grown up I'm fifth generation oil field lmao. I stepped a little outside the box and instead of chasing rigs i got into coiled tubing.

I was able to drive some decent sized units at my old company, 230k gross 12x14' and a jeep. Rode like a Cadillac.

Anyhow i have always wanted a B model mack in anyshape or form but recently i ran into a truck that had disappeared for a few years (behind a barn). Ready to pick it up as soon as i can get a day off. I re contacted the seller and he will still part with it for our agreed price years ago.

Sorry i had the quality on my phone cranked up for the pictures and can not resize them. Today we got the old dog cranked up and drove around the pasture. Engine sounds great made 80 psi of oil pressure after we dug it around with a tractor priming up the fuel and oiling. Win h works too. The trans and pto sound good as well. Just gotta get on the electrical and air sytem. The air tanks looked about ready to go.
