  1. Those buses were still in the double clutch era. No wonder it was so hard to get the gears changed.
  2. I'm wondering about the shift connection. Is it air or mechanical? I remember riding on some of those old "pushers" and the driver having trouble with every shift.
  3. I got a pair of new tie rod ends from him. Saved the day.

    "New" Tow rtruck

    That is a great story. Those old converted tow rigs were awesome and still are for that matter.

    One more thing simple as it may be is the choke. Yes let us know what you find.

    You are right about that. It is a long haul from there to Medicare at 65. The Florida pictures look nice about now. We (in northern VA) have about 6" of snow and it is still coming for the rest of the day with predictions up to 10".
  8. I had the same problem with tie rod ends for my '60 B but was lucky enough to find a new pair. Fortunately the king pins are OK. I have a new set of king pins Mack part #301SQ 45A. I'm not sure what they fit. The pin is a little over 6 1/2" and has bushings for upper and lower.

    ...and then be sure the fuel system is clean with fresh gas. Then run a can of SeaFoam through it. The other possibility is the valves could be sticking at start up.

    Value of a 1951 DuPlex?

    I sold a duplex direct in operating condition for $200. PS it weighted in at 800+#

    B Model With Steam Calliope

    I remember Giant having the show trucks and seeing them at different events and promotions. I have several friends that worked their careers with Giant and it was always the "place to shop" until the company was sold. I don;t know anything about calliopes or how much they would add to the value of the unit but it is one nice truck & trailer.
