  3. Back home. The auction was a year in the making. I had posts on here when I was organizing the photos and paper items. I listed the auction info on the 2 weeks before it was to go off and first the post was "in the wrong category" It was in odds and ends, it was moved to Other Trucks and THAT was the wrong because it was a "jumble parts, trucks, cars and equipment" so the powers deleted it. The issue with me selling the trucks, containers of parts and paper items was I had 103 trucks I was "going to get to later" Never gonna happen. I sold my 55 Chevy because some gentleman asked me if

  4. Been sitting on this since I found it back in Aug '98. It was missing the engine, the owner took it out and put it in a B-81. It was rough but all there, including the radiator and hood. It has a double-over Triplex in it with a clutch brake. The cab was the worst part with the typical L Model issues and rust, but fixable. It was converted to a tandem with a set of R Model axles. The owner kept the original axle though and it came with the truck. This was always my favorite B Model set up, cab, radiator and fuel tanks. Just loved the lines and stumbled upon this one only by luck. I had nowhere

  10. You may have to go west to find 24" Budd wheels.. They used Budds long before they were common in the East.. Walter and Oshkosh snow plows had 12 and 14 X 24 tires on 10 hole Budd wheels (some offset to track in single rears) in the 50's and 60's in upstate NY.

  12. I'm almost done sanding, getting ready to paint the chassis. I pulled it outside for the first time in over 2 years, I tried a shortcut to compress the front springs by pushing down on the front of the frame with my bucket tractor, not enough weight to compress the springs. So I pushed it back inside and used Vlad and Jim's idea of chains and binders, that did the trick. The only problem was the rubber insulators wouldn't compress enough to put the caps on all the way so I had to whack away at them with a utility knife. They are Automann brand, I think one problem is the rubber comp

  17. I really like the E9 for many reasons but unfortunately it is not an engine for everyone. I got more than a few of them still. There is no support from Mack anymore, Tech's at Vangard Mack here in AZ have never seen one let alone been trained to work on one. Vary few places can work on them so if you are getting one plan on working on it yourself or being by a place that can. Check that out before buying one. If you are using the truck for a primary money maker it may not be your first choice. If for a secondary or hobby unit it is a great choice. Nothing like a E9-500 for power, sound,
