  1. Sorry for the late reply. The engine is about 6 inch longer than the gasser. Other than that its pretty close. I also found the 673 from a b is very close to the steering box. There would be no way to install a R model engine unless the oil filters were remove mounted. The A 50 frame is about 6 inches narrower than the B frame. Morgan
  2. Thanks for the article. I think the 673 is pretty close to the original engine in size. I guess I will have to get the tape measure out and get started.
  3. I'be got my self in a project that I know little about. Someone else has removed the 431 gas engine and trans from this truck. The engine is pretty much junk. Add in the fact parts are almost non-existent for this engine. Has anyone here had any luck installing a "B" model 673?

  11. I have a Jacobs brake that I removed from a 237, I would figure It needs o ring kit or rebuild. $650.00 O.B.O. Morgan
  12. Yes I did, John Jones did the work for me. dead pedal problem?
  13. Got the truck all together, and worked all the little bugs out and just drove it on our first road trip. The result, It runs great, the power is right there when you split shift, has a narrow power band but hits hard at 1600 to 2100. Drops like a rock under 1550. Uses so much less fuel than before and the old duplex seem to be much happier shifting than before. It also starts scary fast, I rebuilt the polarity switch and starter, that 24 volts twirls the 675 like nothing. Fred
