  2. I see that the EN 707 gasser and the END-673 had almost identical torque (around 600 ft lb. This would indicate that the two engines had the same stroke and bore. Was the block the same for both engines. The 707 must have been a beast of a gasser. Its life was short lived as it came on the scene to late as diesels such as the 673 were coming on line at the time. I believe IH's biggest gasser was the 501. How did Mack's EN 540 flat head stack up against the big White flat heads. Those Whites had a great sound. I am retired now and I have nothing better to do than think up nostalgia from the pas

  3. Not sure if I have shared this before but I find it a really good read not my story this is as written by Bill Moline John Victor Ehret taught me to drive a truck. He taught me on Jackbilt No.2 an L model 190 with a silly wheel pusher, Clark 5 speed and 2 reverse gearbox and powered by a 6/71 GM and put on the ground by a No.4 Eaton diff. At various times it had had different motors but the current one in 1963 was the 6/71. It had big shoulders that truck, but skinny legs, and axle changing was part of the job description. Previous Jackbilts had included a KB6 which went throug

  5. I don't see a way to comment on pix in the new photo layout. Those pictures you posted of the electric B look great...I'll bet it's a good feeling to see tires on your truck!

  8. This is a 440 that was destroyed by the rod breaking mid point, the piece on the crank spun around and broke the cam in 3 pieces. Look at the last photo, the rod and wrist pin are still on the crank but not in their original cylinder. Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki

  9. That picture sitting there is so neat and clean it makes it look like a detailed model staged for a picture and not a real truck.

  10. Yes, one goes to compressor and other to drier. The other line by itself, goes to the first/wet air tank

  12. The engine in the LTL is the big brother to a 275 iron lung. A 320 with added piston cooling and tuned up PT pump out of a pan scraper, notice the auxiliary double groove pulley in front of the blower, not normal in a truck. Added the Jake on top in green. If noticed on the interior photo this truck is a 3 stick. Duplex into a 3 speed Brownie, no shortage of gears here. It will cruise at 2100rpm@65mph even with the optional high speed 5.77 ratio rears as spec for 1953. Tops out at 72mph. Yes it sounds like a 275 but after 1500 RPM's, great burpie idle too. A little smoother cam than a 275
