  1. With cab and fenders removed and frame basically stripped, I went over my B75 with wire brush and scraper and never found any thing that resembled a serial number. And mine has the B cab.
  2. 98% done with the rewiring and installing cab markers. Next is the air system and sound deaden-er. I have a old bow-tie visor I've had laying around, I'll have to see how I will narrow it down for the B cab.
  3. Yes 5" elbows into 6" stacks, no muffler. Jakes have a nice deep rumble coming out of those pipes. Got a heck of a deal on all that chrome exhaust parts, $800.00 for everything.
  4. HBIS 600 672 cu.in. https://www.dieselworldmag.com/diesel-engines/where-old-cummins-diesels-go-to-live-again/
  5. I have friend that has a 180 with a blower I'll have to look at it.
  6. I could be way wrong but it looks like a old 300 to me.
  7. Maybe a little better photo for the tint or maybe not, you decide.
  8. The color has a bluish/purple tint in direct sunlight, the camera didn't show that very well. I had him weld the holes for the grab handles and markers plus some other holes shut. I think I'm going to install 7 torpedo marker lights on the roof. The stacks have their own mounts and are also going to be bolted to the headache rack I'm building. I didn't want the stacks mounted on the cab, the cab is old and did not want the extra stress on the corners. The stacks are 6"x 5" x 108" miter cut and there heavy. Thanks for the interest and reply's everyone.
  9. Thanks, but the one who deserves the credit for the great body work and paint job is {Jose Palomino}.
  10. Finally picked the cab up today and hauled it to the shop. Almost afraid to start working on assembly for fear of scratching.
  11. That's a beautiful B75, no doubt one of the nicest I've seen.
  12. I'm not seeing 6" longer hood or 4" rise on the cab, not saying it isn't I'm just not seeing it I guess. It should have longer fender extension between cab and fender I would think. I know I will have to add at-least 12" to mine to make up for the distance I moved the cab back. And I raised the radiator plus cab mounts 2" which will set bottom of cab about a 1/2" above frame rail. Look at the fender extensions on the one below, mine will extend past the inside radius of the bottom rear of fender if visualized on this truck. I see it but it is hard to make out.
