  1. I am offered to buy such unit locally. The price tag is reasonable but I have no idea on the ratios, body length etc. It was removed from (as they said) 2004 DM dump truck with some kind of E7 engine.

    1962 Mack B-61

    Thank you. Prob the sun made it looking just about as real diamonds. I'm not a real fan to polish aluminium. Have way beyound of enough to at the moment.
  4. Grabbed this somewhere on the net some while back.

    1962 Mack B-61

    What are those rear fenders? I don't remember any store offering such style. Look made of SS to me.
  6. A few more pics from someone's gallery. Not almost sure the chassis relates to the truck but all the files were named in the same manner.
  7. This is how a factory B-model looked with that setup. As I was told the front axle and the transfer case were of the same style as Mack NO had. Maybe excepting the gear ratios. For some reason I think the frame rails are stepped at the front to clear up the drive axle. NO was made that way. But I'm not sure for the B.

    Sad to hear.

    Putin, the Internet and Vlad

    Of the things the media talked locally I heard of plans to make a net which could operate separately if Western countries shut down the interweb access. I doubt it will be done soon and done completely. But everything is possible. And not difficult to figure out that if a switch is put in between it could be pulled into off position be either sides. If such thing happen I wouldn't be able to post on a daily basis but have reserve abilities to say hello to the community

    New to me engine configuration

    And they were very proud of representing it in early 90's or so. Further development allowed them to make W12 out of two VR6 blocks unified in a V. And they produced them in series. Probably continue at the time either.

    Looking For Brake Switch Location CXU613

    I can't tell for CXU but I was being founding that switch on a CH. It was located on the engine side of the firewall. Somewhere in the middle behing the engine or closer to the driver side if the memory serves. A small untit mounted to the wall with two wires attached and an air hose to supply air from brakes. I could find it easily because my R-model has the same setup and mounted in the same area. It sure could be different on your truck since it's newer but at least a point to start looking.
  15. I like the way they look in that color. And sure like to see those old trucks running.

    B- series

    I found a couple of pictures of Matt's truck which could put some light on the matter of question. But seems like you have to provide the figuring out yourself.

    Welcome! We like truck pictures and stories behind. If you have technical questions put them in the forum related to the subject. Plenty of info is already typed there either. So worth patient readng as a start. Vlad

    swap out T2070

    T2070 has 0.60 top hole. The same for T2060 and T2080. T2090, T2110, T2130 and T2180 all have 0.71. That's why you would like faster rears if go to the most any multi speed transmission. Actually you should count T2070 as a 5-speed (T2050) with two crawl gears. The same for T2060 and T2080 with one and three crowls. They were designed for vocational jobs the most to eliminate shifs in traffic. The additional low speeds spreaded the use toward construction jobs when you operate a dump, mixer or concrete pump chassis driving in a city but need really low speeds for special tasks.
  19. Ha-ha-ha! If you take that synchro out just send it my way
  20. NO front axle had 9.02 ratio.

    1960 B75 Rebuild

    I wish I could purchase a pair of new rails for my R-model paying 2 or 3K. Those have spread and get lower to the front. My deal is restoring so staight rails wouldn't work. PG Adams didn't treat me much showing no possibility to bend a rail for the spread. Although they were so honest shipping me a 4" sample of what my rail would be if I weld straight channels to my front end the bend radius they can do for 1/4 rails didn't match my frame. So no solution so far. Your project makes my mooth water. It's not my cup of tea to build a custom truck since I prefere stock but the way it gets together looks very promising.

    Dodge Bighorn

    As far as I know at least one truck is in Europe. A guy from Finland imported it from the States. When I was a kid I had a picture of Big Horn cut from some old Russian magazine. It was small and black and white but I too liked the truck. Didn't know they were so few in number produced. I think the magazine was issued in 1977 or so.
  23. Paul, those are very interesting files, put alot of light on the matter. Thanks. I see they note T2060A transmission in the list. Seems like it was done the same way (or even the same design?) as later T308 tranny. 6 speeds on the main stick require different top cover with one additional shift fork and a rail. All that seems done on T2060A. Wonder how the engeneers could put additional gear set into the main housing of the same size as a 5-speed unit had. And sure I wonder how the gear wheels are similar of the seating sizes to the shafts so I could take everything off two or three transmissions and play with until get dirty and upset. Let's see
  24. That's what i keep in my mind. Originally my truck had T2090 and I would keep it but the sliding clutched got worn during the years of unexperienced driving. Locally I could find T2070 with 0.60 overdrive and put in the truck. Affordable but the gear spacing is up to 70% what is too much for Econodyne E6-350. Fast overdrive is good but one more gear between the direct and the over is required. My current idea is to try fixing the 9-speed using parts off the 7-speed but that newer 8-speed unit could make the deal too having the steps of nearly 60%.
  25. Thanks the great Jim, that's what I was looking for. Interesting that the overall length of the transmission (798mm) is almost similar to T2090. The overgear ratio is also similar - 0.71. Definitely looks like T200 and T300 series have a lot of things in common. But too probably many parts of the content could be found different. Ok, my engeneering addiction gets my thoughts in direction of taking apart and combining/modifying everything I find on my way. This time its possible to install the unit as is since no modifications required to. The last point - I should find the reason
