Question

Hi Gents I'm starting work on a RD688s .  I think its a 1989.  It looks like the cab tilts ?  If so how far does it tilt and what needs to be done first .  And what is the best way to lift it ?  I could probably use a good cab I am in Mo. The doors I have are good but the rest of it is rusty junk.  Thanks

ok which direction does it tilt? is it in need of an air bag for the cab ? does it tilt left, right or towards the back? is it tilting forward? check the cab mounts to see if anything is bent, broken, twisted, deflated, loose, worn, shifted, the older solid mount trucks sometimes would have the left to right channel on the floor in the back of the cab split in btween the mounts and usually the drivers side would sag.  is the cab rotted out?

If you are looking at them round front cab mounts, no it does not tilt.    terry:MackLogo:
