  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

  8. Looking for cover story about Mack LTL on cover. Old mag but maybe someone on here has it. Long shot.
  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 .
  12. seen a dockumentry on a line haul driver down under and the big concerne was fuel temp on long hard pulls. raising a cab up like that makes sense when you have to do any work under there. n/a trucks are mounted to low and you can't even see under them. I've often thought that the engineres should be the mechanics after they design something.
  13. don't what it went for but my friend in b.c. got. waiting for chassis number
  14. There were a lot of LT's up here on Vancouver Island of S&S trucking with HALL-SCOTT engines chassis numbers 1011 - 1017 and quite a few on the lower mainland with 707 engines chassis numbers lt-2d1224 & lt-2d1225. These were log trucks with off high way suspentions 11 & 12 foot bunks and about 25 ton trailers.Pictures show them to be way over loaded for size of truck.
  15. friend of mine has one he is doing up in VICTORIA B.C. There still out there .
  16. quite a few western mack's in the b-73 range with that rad were made in calif for western market. but with the b model cab.i think when they put the bigger power in that rad they just made the core thicker. my friends ltl had a 200 cummin's with narrow core and i seen one with 300 cummin;s but thicker core.
  17. The rad is definatly off a LJX with that alum. side . The bottom side of rad is where it sits down on frame.I think the whole truck has been made up. A real clone Maybe the person who built it is on here and could explain things
  18. wipers were lowered on the 1953 models.on top of wind shield in 1952.
  19. model is a WC 26 PLTD prior to moving wipers to below windshield.
  20. is there a one way check valve between compressor and primary tank.If not your valves in compressor could be leaking back. Something you would never hear. If you havn't got one in line get one and try it.
  21. The yellow B model in pictures say's it's a B-85 but I thought B-85 was a fire truck or was this one converted to B-81 series.
