Modifications to Pinnacle AF

Recommended Posts

What would have to be altered to put a big bore engine in a Mack pinnacle AF. Are there any glider like companies trying to do this. Seems like the Pinnacle AF dimensions are close to other manufacturers AF conventional trucks. It's easy to see why Pinnacle AB, Granite and Anthem fall short.:huh:

While I’m certainly no authority by a long stretch so take this for what it’s worth. I thought I read on another thread on here that the hood was to short but again my memory can be fuzzy at best.

Just a stupid question..... WHY??? And when you are talking about a big bore, Cat, Cummins, Detroit??? Unless it was ordered with an MP 7, which it probably has an MP 8, the engine compartment is being squished with the 8 due to engine length and that lovely sloped hood. Truth be told, it could handle an ISX and that’s is crammed. I would love to have seen the cxu chassis with stretched hood and an MP 10 shoved in there, oooo the capabilities, lol!!! Good ole 3406 would be rear purty too, but that went with those beautiful super liners.  Just had to go an pitch 2 more cents in the pile! Have a good time with it.
