    1960 B75 Rebuild

    I deleted photos in my old threads still won't let me post any photos. So If you want to see any progress photos go to my thread under {Old Iron} 1960 B75 on Heavy Equipment Forums. I'm tired of fiddling around here trying to post photos. Sorry. Truck Shop

    Soda blaster cleaned up real nice and everything went to the body shop. The doors were in great condition and the cab was also but there will be several hours welding the drilled holes shut in the cab. The radiator core is in great condition only two tubes had small amounts of crud in them. I would post photos but for some reason there is no place to do it. Apparently I reached my max on images now I just have to figure out how to manage attachments to free up space it says.

    Oh yeah Superliners were available with the dozen there was one years ago that roamed the West Coast with twin turbos, engine was built by a boat yard in Long Beach Ca. That puppy flew. There was not a Cat or Cummins around that would run with it. Truck Shop

    I've spent most of my money on old trucks and motorcycles, the rest I just wasted. Truck Shop

    Made my decision today on power plant, rear drives and gear box. Bought a 81 Freightliner for way less than scrap price with a running BCII 350, 10 spd and 3.70 ratio SQHD's for $500.00 bucks It's too bad because the cab is in pretty nice condition but it will go for aluminum scrap. Plus the engine bell is right hand starter which helps make room for the power steering box. There are lots of other parts I can use also. Truck Shop

    Because there is more open ground, hills and mountains to hide things. Truck Shop

    Actually I have several choices of Cummins power and several gear boxes, so at this point I'm not really sure. Really just a small cam 350 would be plenty for a garage queen Truck Shop.
