    I have several sale brouchers from the 70's and 80's but not that one. Would love to find one for the Cruiseliner. Thanks for posting
  2. F model shares a lot with the R model for parts. Just hope you don't need windshields. They at Pricey

    That's cool. Must be Brand new, I think 77 was the first year of the B cabs. Thanks for sharing

    Do your trucks use the Delco Remy A6 compressor?
  5. 1978 R model

    kinda like how every 8V71 Detroit is automatically a 318. Have owned several 8V71's and many different HP's. Still it looks like a decent truck
  6. If your Cruiseliner is 24 volt then there is a rather heavy gage wire coming off the right side battery box that powers the cab. At least that's how my "eastcoast" Cruiseliner is wired. My "westcoast" built cruiseliner is 12 volt. I can go and try to follow the cab power supply if that helps. The power wire I'm talking about is the same gage as a starter wire on a lawnmower. I dont have much in the way of wireing diagrams but I do own 2 Cruiseliners. I'm more than happy to look at mine and tell ya how there wired. Good luck
  7. Never seen one like this before.

    Hard to say but if you look at the steering piston behind left front tire that would make this a 5020. Never heard of 6V conversions, but I'm sure someone tried it.
  8. Never seen one like this before.

    The 5020 series were well known for their extremely strong gear cases. In fact there are articles written about them and there legendary strength. Kinzie made a kit to install 8V71 or 855 Cummins when these tractors were new. It was a hold over from the 2 Cylinder days of high tourque impact from the fireing of just 2 cylinders. Remember these are the same engineers of the 2 cylinder era who designed the "First Generation" John Deeres. I will look for the article and post it if I can figure out how to. But a 318 HP Detroit or 350 HP Cummins installed back in the late 60's and still working toady is a testament to strength and durability. A 4020 had the same stamina but its not rated for that engine for sure. The 5000 series was a much bigger tractor. This being said we all know of 175 or 200 HP 4020's earning there keep
  9. off big engines for a question

    Williams Diesel in Ocala, Fl are the Small diesel Guru's. Have a 03 with a 7.3 they chipped for us. Has 310,00 on it now. Just put 3 injectors in it. same turbo. Truck pulls 38' Gooseneck all the time. 2 high pressure oil pumps, not sure why, 1 water pump, 1 radiator. The truck just goes & goes. Suppose to be @ 425 H.P. been this way since it had 30,000 on it. Gets @ 15 MPG

    Sounds like an Awesome project. Why not go for it? Its a toy. What do you have to lose besides time? Any investment could be sold/traded off if it didn't work
  11. Astro needs a new home

    Manchester Auto glass 603 622 6737. They have been a huge help for our Cabover fleet. As for parts, Buy a parts truck. Online, ebay. Some things are available at a "Good" dealer.
  12. Ok. Now I see the pic your talking about. That would be a cool Transtar to have in the collection
  13. cummins flywheel

    Another source you might try is Bill Jones in Bow, N.H. 603 496 8802
  14. Highway thru hell

    My 8 yr old Son watches that show. Its his favorite show. I like Jamie Davis & some of his crew. However, if I were up there and needed help you bet id be calling Al Quirring. From an O/O standpoint he seems much more reasonable.
