  1. Unfortunately they sent me photos by email but the address is blocked I can return email and sometimes you don't hear anything back from them but they do answer the phone thats the problem people here have had with them
  2. The phone number is good they still sell truck parts if your not in a big hurry they operate 2 other businesses from the same location and the salvage yard maybe does not get as much attention as the others I am planning a trip down there possibly in the next few weeks I will update at that time
  3. If your talking about the air drier you can replace the cartridge on the air drier if that does not do it clean the air line that activates the air drier its a small line that can get choked off with oil and muck from moisture
  4. You will also see this heat checking on a flywheel as long as your diameter and depth spec out you should not have any trouble
  5. Those cracks are heat checks that all drums get its normal wear
  6. 1940,s GMC I have a picture of one nearly identical the three side vents on the hood and the grill are the only difference, one day ill figure out how to get pictures posted
  7. If you can not read the numbers on the old filters post a picture of the fuel filter and oil filters and I should be able to get the numbers from the other trucks we have cummins used a couple different set ups around that time frame
  8. When you say not working the only thing that would keep them from working is your brake adjustment on the slack adjusters but there are more things to look at if they do not release
  9. My DM 800 specs show 1100 square inches for radiator space and if I am not mistaken a B 73 has about 950 square inches of radiator so not a lot of difference
  10. It should be possible I was successful in blocking off the egr on a Detroit 60 series it had a coolant leak internal it was being sucked into the intake and being burned creating a similar problem I did have to buy a modified barometric pressure sensor to make the ecm work
  11. Yes that is a difficult question but the most common would be the DM 600 series there were over a dozen different numbered models steel hood for some fiberglass for others the DM 800 had even more numbered models but all with steel hoods same with the later RD 800 I have seen pictures of R models from Australia that had an optional steel hood also
  12. I grew up on the west coast saw almost every truck you could see from the 60s on up on the roads and highways but never a Brockway only after moving to North Carolina I saw them in the 90s
  13. Great show Thanks for posting all those fantastic pictures
