Definetly a ENDT 673 Mack,I cannot tell from the pictures if it is an early or late production engine though.I'm on the road. Everything is good, except it keeps popping out of 5th gear. Not even when I'm going up a hill. Just does it. Sometimes I have to engage it in 4th to get it to take 5th again. Any suggestions from the M54a1 ninja masters?
Made it to my dad's house in portland. After keeping it running all day, it took ten minutes to figure out how to shut her down. Today I'm Changing some more fuel filters and making the last 100 mile leg. Come by for a beer if you'd like. 207-807-3687How far did you get yesterday?
It wasn't slipping, just fuel starved after bouncing that old tank atound. Just changed the primary on the road side, and was rolling in no time.Definetly a ENDT 673 Mack,I cannot tell from the pictures if it is an early or late production engine though.
If it is slipping out of 5th gear,could be worn synchros,worn gears,or worn shift forks,or combination of the 3.
I appreciate the line. Luckily I'm a glutton for the punishment and have been fairing well. The gesture is not forgotten though. If you ever need a hand around concord NH, I'll do what I can if I'm on land.I'm two hours from bangor if you need help and I work for a rigging company if it needs to be hauled back on a trailer. Good luck
There is no quick victory option with this one. I'll need to be a consistent kitchen cleaner/laundryfolder/back rubber for the long haul. She's dug in, so siege tactics.Bringing the truck home is the easy part. My is that you implement as many 'damage control' procedures as you can prior to departing on your trip to pick up the truck. You'll need at least 1 dozen long stemmed red roses (they scream "I'm Sorry"), a card that says "I'm Sorry", a gift card to her favorite store, dinner at her favorite restaurant, a pedicure/manicure, time away from the kid(s) if applicable, etc.
Good Deal! I'm taking Mrs. Katahdin out to brunch to Cape Elizabeth at the moment, if you're still in town later this afternoon I'll try to meet up.Made it to my dad's house in portland.
