  1. I know nothing about these model trucks but if the foot brake valve is for air brakes and you know what the valve is check on eBay. I bought a new one for my b and it wasn’t that bad of $, if I remember correctly.
  2. If I remember I think the 1 at the end means steel case a 2 would be aluminum.
  3. The box, and pump came off of the same truck fl70 or 80 with same engine I’m preparing to swap in. My front axle is already same era freightliner. So hopefully no handling issues.
  4. Fuzzy. Wonder if something is different at the axle end. Maybe a non power steering axle has longer mounting points where the drag link hooks to it, just like a longer handled ratchet has more leverage. When the ps was added to this it made for almost no feel at the wheel. Idk just a thought.
  5. Thanks! Now I have some more ideas running through my head. How much extra strengthening was required in the dash?
  6. What’s the clutch pedal setup? Is that standard for a right hand drive truck?
  7. My b has minivan seats in it and they look really similar.
  8. I’m have a reman box from a freightliner that’s going infront of the axle. The column I have to use is from a Mack mr garbage truck. It looked almost identical to the R but has a smaller 18” wheel. If it’s easier and you still have my phone # you could text them to me. Thanks
  9. I’ve heard people mention on here about sticking a r model column in a b when switching to a r power steering box. Has anyone done it that has a picture of how you mounted it to the dash. I’m putting pieces together and looking for ideas.
  10. I believe it’s a setup just to move garbage dumpsters around from one location to another.
  11. Same here. We walked forever and then watching the parade leave we see truck we never saw.
  12. Dad keeps all his stuff in a cardboard box on a shelf. The rouge he keeps kinda wrapped in the plastic it comes in. It’s in a clean place not under a workbench. He keeps the brush handy while buffing a periodicly leaves the buffer run and holds the brush against the wheel. I don’t think he has ever washed a wheel, and they do wear out. They keep getting smaller if you do diamond plate it’s pretty ruff on the wheels. There are different color wheels and rouge it determines how course they are. Idk the difference outher then his red wheel is really course.

    Tire irons

    Like said before. It takes time to learn how to use them. Local guy had one and I could use the bars and do it quicker then he could for awhile. But once he figured out he liked it.
  14. Don’t use to high of speed, it can kinda burn the aluminum and give it blueish spots. My dad has a dewalt buffer he uses. Bought it prob 15 years ago. Held up great. He has a stainless wire brush he uses to clean the wheels. To much build up in them makes thing not work right. Don’t use to ruff of wheels or course of ruge either.

    I Swear

    It’s not for sale though. He’s gonna get it back on the road one of these days.
  16. Anyone? Have to load soon if going to Macungie. Make an offer
  17. It all depends on how my iPhone was turned when I snapped the pic. if it will post correctly or not. I don’t remember which way I have to hold it though.
  18. I’ve only been there on Saturday. That being said if you want to see everything it is a very busy day and not enough time to actually look at everything. Like Brocky said at 3 it’s pretty much a steady parade leaving.
  19. Cleaned the B up and brought it local fire co. car show today. Even got my new grote led headlights in. I had to buy a calendar from “Firehouse Dolls” but it got me a photo with one of the girls!👍🏻
  20. Me too. $200 a year. $10,000 full coverage and an extra Ryder for unlimited towing of trailers.
  21. I don’t want to touch it but would love to see and hear it.
