  1. Attempting to identify a couple main/aux transmission setups. The ID tags are as follows: Main - Fuller 5H74T, Aux - 8031e....I'm guessing that the main is simply a 5 speed direct in 5th (looks like single countershaft), but is the 8031e an old spicer 3 speed aux transmission?
  2. Sounds great I'd appreciate that! It would help out a lot. I just sent you a message with my email address. Thanks!
  3. So the "64" would indicate a tandem axle truck, as in "six sets of wheels, four driven" (the four being the tandems)?
  4. Thanks for the example...yea, they seem a bit difficult to decipher. Trying to learn that secret code!
  5. On the old Autocar's of the 60s and 70s, how is the chassis/model number deciphered? For example DC10364SOH, DC9764OH, DC75T.....etc. I've tried searching online but could not come up with anything to help decipher all the different numbers for the different truck models.
  6. just an update...went to see Ed at Margala's and i found exactly what i needed, however he doesn't want to separate it from the truck. But, he said he's sure he's got a couple more similar he's just got to "find it". So he told me that he will get back to me in a day or two. Hopefully it works out so I can paint it and put up on the roof before the end of Oct for a show I'd like to go to. And WoW, it's difficult to see from the road but Margala's has a lot of trucks there. Never noticed until today. He had quite a few Ford Louisville's too.
  7. just googled them to get a phone number to call in the AM, but it says permanently closed lol. i'll try the number anyway. but thank you for the message!
  8. i forgot all about Margala...got on their website, i've just sent them an email. Thanks for reminding me about them. So far I contacted West Point Truck Center, Adelmans, and Aerodyne Industries. West Point had nothing, Adelmans had just one but it was too wide, and Aerodyne said they could make one but it would require new mounting brackets be installed on the cab roof for their style...i told them I had existing mounting brackets but according to the person I spoke with, they are not compatible. USF Holland in North Lima actually has the same style and size on their older road tractors...but
  9. i'm waiting to hear back from Adelmans...i sent them the pictures of what i needed, so maybe they'll have something. I also did the same with West Point Truck Center in Lisbon. If I could find a used on in decent condition I'd be ok with that, as I'd have to cut out a small section in the bottom-center of it for the rooftop A/C anyhow.
  10. thanks for the phone number and for the spectrum website, i'll definitely check to see if they have anything that would work. it says they have them for roof brackets 34-37 " center to center, and my roof brackets are 37.5" center to center. if anything else comes to mind let me know...thanks for the info!
