  1. Don't see many in 24.5". After a bunch of phone calls to Pete's and the dismantlers, you will find a set. After checking for bent wheels and refinishing, it might be worth it to order Accu-Lites brand new. Last I knew they could be powder coated white, gray or black. https://www.4statetrucks.com/wheels/semi-truck-powder-coated-white-24-5-inch-steel-wheel-hub_44054.asp?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIpKyvnt_14gIVl4SzCh1pIQj8EAQYAyABEgJgKfD_BwE
  2. Hi Bob, missed your post on this issue somehow? Looks like we can circle back on this for next year and make a plan.
  3. Excellent to know the unique history of your truck.

    Welcome! What model do you have? Post a picture of it when you can.
  5. Wouldn't be surprised if the surviving number could be counted on one hand.
  6. The Garrison air assist has worked pretty well on a Brockway I have. If you could get the gear in decent condition, it would be something to consider. Shifting takes practice, skill and coordination. Sometimes skill and coordination is lacking with me and about then, patience jumps out the window!
  7. Monster truck in the day beautifully restored and shown at Macungie. Better than new and Awesome! Picture of the front drive axle and suspension.
  8. No doubt the 2019 ATCA National Show was Phenomenal!!! The weather was perfect! The number of trucks was fantastic! Some trucks looked like jewelry on the show field! I also drooled on some beautiful, never touched, all original rigs. There are 360 days to consider this proposal but how about changing the official BMT picture time? High noon is easy to remember but can lead to conflicts with people preparing lunch for a crew or some folks headed elsewhere for a picnic experience. Thoughts?
  9. Years ago, there was a lot of interchangeability with parts. Not like the parts disaster these days. If you would like a complete cable assembly, it is an AC CC-3 approx 61" long. Here is a link to show an example. You may be able to scout around and find a better price. I needed a complete cable for an E and called a Ford supplier for a 1934 Ford and the cable assembly fit perfectly. Scroll over the picture and you can compare the fittings at the end. https://autopartsobsolete.com/1934-35-36-37-40-41-willys-lincoln-ford-truck-speedometer-cable-CC-3-ac-delco.html There is a 71" long cable available also.
  10. Nice Mack models in the display area of the Mack Museum.
  11. Looks Great! Nice when all the Clecos find a home without a fuss.
  12. Shown at Macungie and is absolutely fabulous!!! E9 500 HP Mack power.

    Going to keep it a quiet for a little bit because I have to tell a friend about it. He has been yapping about getting a K Dub. Because of that, the family possibly will have to do an intervention and maybe put him in rehab. On the other hand, I am playing the role of being a bad influence! It is about 123.8 miles from your place on the other side of the river. Saw you and the Mrs. guarding the mudflaps of your truck on the show field but when I checked back, no one was there. I will have to stop in at the Spa this fall maybe. Ha! Hmmm.... maybe they are hiding it on him..... Yup, he will probably claim he just parked it there and all brush grew since last Thursday morning! Pretty much rooting the ground! On our side of the lagoon and since this is a family show, we will just say it has been settin' for a bit.

    Would be nice! Different stripe detail and a much smaller bunk. Then again... Stuff does get changed around.

    I might stop another time and check it out further. It was getting to be dusk and this is farmer's shotgun territory. No need to startle anyone!

    There is a Kenworth W900 with a bunk under all the foliage. Saw it on the way back home after Macungie in upstate New Yawk.
  17. Well, that's ugggly. Recent machine work performed by Bucky the beaver.
  18. Call those type of folks Paul Harvey. Eventually, you get "The Rest of the Story".
  19. Typesetting equipment? You do have a range of interests!
  20. Nice looking B-71. Need to get that out of the weeds!
  21. Very sad to hear RR.
  22. Initial cost is about $3,000.00 plus shipping for an aftermarket piece. How much can you do? Don't know what a shop might charge. https://www.stengelbros.net/product.asp?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIn9yytPnj4gIVB_5kCh1C7AsGEAkYASABEgKcxfD_BwE&itemid=7211
