I have possibly found fenders, 1 wheel & many small parts in NJ! Does anyone have a suggestion on shipping a skid of parts to perhaps Niagara Falls? I can have it picked up there & do the border crossing. I guess the wheel alone will be about 300 lb.

There is a Fastenal store 10 miles from the parts. I am not familiar with their process, do they pick up or do you need to take the skid of parts to their store?

If Fastenal does not work. I often use YRC freight. They are cost affordable and will pickup add ship items strapped down to a pallet of its under standard 40x48 size. Anything bigger and longer typically needs a crate.

Merry Christmas to all!

The valves arrived from H&J yesterday & they are perfect.
Unfortunately since the MACK will not fit in my shop it is a little difficult to work on it now. The whiners that wanted a white Christmas certainly got their way.

The valve job was done when the weather cleared but no one could crank the engine to start it - wore out all of my big friends. 5" bore X 6" stroke, 4 cylinder = 471 cid.

It has taken a while but now the truck has a starter from a Cat diesel & a ring gear from a JD AR. It took a lot of calculation in making the bracket but it works well. The engine runs very well too!

Nice tig welding on the Al bracket, you must have a pretty stout machine to weld that thick material.

I cannot take the credit for the welding - I have an ICD that the Drs. tell me will light me up like a Christmas Tree if I get close to a welder. I did do all of the rest though.

I have a fellow who is a retired trade school welding instructor who does this sort of thing for me. He obviously shows his 50 years of experience.

He pre-heated the assembly a bit & used 100 amps & a 3/32 electrode.

I screwed the pieces together with countersunk 1/4" cap screws & undercut the areas with a ball end mill where the weld is flat. Not having loose parts & a lot of clamps usually makes for a better job.

Update on the MACK AC: I have made all of the cab support panels & brackets & it is now permanently mounted, floor boards are done, rad reconditioned & installed & much more. Today I went for the first drive! By the time I ran out of lane it was in 3rd gear & working fine. Even the power brake works!

I have discovered that I need manifold gaskets though.

The Wood hoist is now ready to mount on the MACK.

Does anyone know what viscosity of oil should be in such a unit? The lines are 3/4" & it has a gear pump.

What diameter of cable would be used?

Thank you,
Jack

Light hydraulic oil or 10 weight non-detergent.

A fine restoration job Jack. I read your entire post this morning and enjoyed it. Brings back memories of my Dad. When I was 6 yrs old he worked for a construction company that had an old chain drive Mack. The body was steel, but the cab looked similar to yours. It did not have solid rubber tires either. My Mom would set me out at the curb and when my Dad came by the house with a load of gravel, he would stop and take me for a ride in it. At 6 yrs old, I was in heaven. That chain drive truck had a distinct sound. When you heard it in the distance, you always knew that Mack was coming soon.

The MACK AC project is slowed due to weather but I did take it for a drive before the weather closed in. Everything, even the power brakes, worked as it should.

I have found one fender that is coming together slowly but I am in desperate need of a RIGHT fender to match. I can work with an AC or AB fender of the later design in almost any condition. The one I need will look like the green one pictured.

The Mack project has slowed over the winter but soon I will be able to go forward with parts that have been repaired during the bad weather. The truck spent the last 5 months under a tarp.

The big news is that I have finally found a right fender. There is sort of a down side in that the fender is 2500 miles away & comes with a complete MACK truck!

The only downside is that the truck is 2500 miles & a border crossing away.

The bonus is that it has a lot of small parts that I can use & perhaps someone else needs a rust free cab & chassis parts.

Another bonus that I discovered today in studying pictures is that it has a Brown-Lipe auxiliary transmission that likely would boost the rated 18 mph top speed.
