  1. maybe to stop oil can vibrations from flat sheet metal
  2. My brouchure of a A-54SW shows rad cap on outside of shell behind bulldog. Also a A-54SW log truck in this town in 1954 had rad cap in same place as yours. I know that the A-40 had cap inside of hood but smaller engine so probably smaller rad. The A-51, A55, and A-50 maybe had external caps also because of bigger rads.
  3. with the updraft carb @ 170 hp it's a early 55 or older. middle of 55 they went to a side draft carb @185 hp. also has low chassis number. have fun with it.we had a b-60 in march 55 with updraft carb and second b-60 in may 55 with side draft.both mack yellow log trucks
  4. friend of mine is looking for one W-71 emblem for his restore project. does anyone know of a reproduction that somebody makes.
  5. also has timken rear ends and spring and torque arm set up. don;t think they are origanal.
  6. International TRANSTAR's COE's & the 4200 and 4300 conventionals used lights similar to those on the CRUISELINERS .Nice looking country . Thanks for sharing.Differant view from what politictions show and tell.
  7. KO1927: What is chassis number of your LTL .My friends is 1884 and 1883 was at K&S at same time.Is your's the one with OSBOURNE name on the door? Have picture of it but no chassis number to go with it.I have photo album of just LTL's and LTH's. Thanks: Bob Dingsdale

  9. Thanks J HANCOCK for chassis number. Have it on back of picture now.
  10. now owned by JOHN LEWIS in MASS. Photo was at ATCA in South DEERFIELD MA. in 2011
  11. without going to a lot of remanufacturing of the booster bracket you will be better off to find a couple of the remote spring brakes that MGM .B/W made with rod or chain attached to the slack adjuster. piggy back type won't fit o factory brackets .
