R Model hood roller and plate

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a pair of the hood rollers and plates for my 1985 RS688LST with the air ride cab.

 

The plates that I am referring to are mounted on the fiberglass hood and the passenger side plate is missing off of both of my trucks.

 

The remaining plate on the 1985 has an additional piece Attached to it, was there an extension for the air ride cab?

 

On the 1985 truck the roller and bracket are missing on the driver side

On the passenger side the bracket for the roller is there but the roller is missing

This is what the plate looks like on the 1975 hood

What are the dimension of the rollers?

 

I am looking for the missing parts or photos of the parts from other trucks so I can confirm what I have are good templates to fabricate the parts, when I have the time

I looked at what I have after work today and discovered that the driver side and passenger side are different so I can't simply copy what I have

This is the passenger side roller bracket

This is the hood on the passenger side

This is the driver side mount, and the roller mount is not there and the mounting is completely different

Looks a combination of air ride cab and a non air ride.    terry:MackLogo:

What do you mean by that?

 

My non air ride cab firewall mounts are completely different

If you are referring to the hood, the bracket attached directly to the fiberglass appears to be the same as my non air ride cab with a strange spacer and the bottom bracket

The RS hood roller mounting arrangement can not be compared with an R-model, 1975 non-air ride or later air-ride cab. The parts are different.

When you contacted Watt's Mack with your model and serial number, what did they say on availability?

That is a 55MX26. But he should confirm by model and serial number.

The round insulator is a 9QM142. The rectangular insulator is a 35RC178 (molded FOMOCO) because Ford used it too.

What I have seen on the pics of the RS that setup is similar to Eastern R with airride cab. I have it on my R688. Two rollers have different attachments indeed. I suppose the rollers themself are similar nor brackets. The hood plates are of a steel channel kind, have no rubber pad since the roller suppose to roll on them, not bump. The padded hood plates are seem like off a solid cab mount truck.

The "drivers side hood" setup should be on both hood attachment spots.

I would buy a piece of U-channel or a square steel pipe and fabrikate a temporary part until some ruined R-model hood shows up. Sometimes they do.

Of the places I'd check out on such stuff Sparr Mack in FL and Global Truck Traders in VT float up in my mind. Both could be found on the net.
