Jambx replied to Jambx's topic in Antique and Classic Mack Trucks General DiscussionThank you for all your input - all great advice - I was hoping to go for the one for sale but it's sold - so I am not sure what direction I will go. Again much appreciated.
Jambx posted a topic in Antique and Classic Mack Trucks General DiscussionOk folks - newbie first post. I am looking for a B61 to have a bit of fun with and to pull our vintage JD tractors to the local pulls. I have been looking at a number of trucks and think I may have found one that would suit my needs but....its a twin screw. I would rather have a single axel and have googled the conversions of a twin to single but nothing related to the B61. I would like to ask the experts here the complexity of this type of mod. I would think most if not all (maybe a new driveshaft) of the pieces and parts are already there and my simplistic brain is telling me remove both axles and take the back and move it to the front - done! But I know there is brake and suspension considerations as well. Can you let me know your thoughts on this if it is feasible and what I am missing. Any and all comments, recommendations and concerns are very very appreciated. Thank you all in advance! Jim
