  1. I just realized you posted this back in April. I can’t post pictures anymore so send me a message if you want.
  2. I’ll try and find you pictures. I swapped mine out from a fld freightliner. If you can search my old posts some how i believe in the antique section I posted pictures and what parts I did. Only thing I’m not sure about is what hubs I used. They came off a different axle then what I used but helped tuck the tires in the fenders a little more.
  3. When I did my front axle swap I removed 3 short leafs on each front spring pack. They where the leaves that where not in the clamps holding the pack together. It made quite a difference. Still rides like a truck but helped. My wheelbase is 190” and I have freightliner rear airride. It rides pretty nice.
  4. The 67 also has a smaller diameter wheel then the regular B does.
  5. Just to let everyone know I got my calendar through the mail safe and sound shipped to Pa. it a nicely done calendar. I hope it will be a yearly thing.
  6. I have the original sales receipt and build sheets for it. Along with owners name and address at that time. I bought it from the second owner who basically just drove it home. Original sale price was $27,800.00
  7. Floors and rain gutters are almost missing and rocker panels are full of body filler.
  8. Original owner mod. It has a belt driven water pump and it’s hook up to the aftercooler. Has its own water cooling system.
  9. I posted some in my post now it won’t let me post anymore
  10. Brought it home today. Has original sales receipt and build sheets with it. My question is. What other cabs interchange with a western r700? This cabs shot. But has almost perfect aluminum doors.
  11. I just got home today a RS753 it has the 1674 cat with a Eaton 13 speed
  12. If you don’t want 4wd I’d look into using a bread truck chassis
  13. It has a 1674 cat and looks like a 13 speed and 4 spring reyco. I think the L in the vin means light weight? Looks to have a bunch of aluminum brackets. Cab looks to be about beyond repair and hood is broke several place too. I’ll keep ya’s posted.
  14. Finally got the engine out today. Made plates that bolted on the intake rear head and the exhaust front. Came out nice. But now I have a question. My engine is sitting level on blocks on the shop floor and the bell housing has a bolt directly at 12 o’clocK. The Tranny is also sitting on the floor level and has bolts at 11 & 1. How is the bolt spacing on a standard B? I know my pattern is to create the 18 degree tilt of of the engine and keep the tranny level. Just wondering wich is different for the b67.
  15. I’m really thinking of cutting my sheet metal and converting it into a tilt front. Just got the engine out and once I get the new steering box squared away that will be next. I spoke with Kevin All he is in the process of building and going to sell original looking fiberglass tilt fronts for the B.
  16. My dad said same thing about painting it.
  17. My Mack Tranny is already out. Prob be the last one I have.(but I could be wrong). The one I copied the yoke sat right on top of the crossbar for jack just like it was made for it.
