Long Nose B ?


Recommended Posts

One of our members had this in a post from a recent show, Never saw a B with this type of nose. Is it factory and anybody know what powers it? Or is it a set back axle? Also got th new drive chains for my AC today.......now just need 1 adjuster and 1 drive sprocket. :thumb:

In the mid 60s i remenber two of those coming in and one had a engine repower with a 6 71 DD in it . The other had a cat repower way before i remenber trucks coming from the factory with a cat engine in it. It was a equipment cat engine.The best i remenber the only thing different from a B 61 body was the rad and cowl was exstend forward.

Yup.

Longer hood to make room for a Cummins, with steer axle in the same location as a B61, rather than set forward like a B75.

Kinda the same but different I'm doing with my white B61. I've "split" the grille shell and going to weld in an extension of five inches to bury a CAC, and a/c condensor behind non functioning, cable operated shutters. The engine is an E6-350.

Cool I like that ideal but i looked into that with mine years ago and ended up installing the Cac on the front out side . The fan is so short on a B61 that even when you do get the speed up on it it is so loud whith noise. I used a 6 blade fan on a swister clutch and it was even more louder.The problem with the narrow rad is the short fan has to be used.

Mack manufactured some larger pump B models that the 707 engines could not power. The noses were lengthened to accomodate a Hall Scott engine. Scroll down this link to see one. http://www.lastresortfd.org/museum.htm mack458

I don't recall seeing one of those either. Do you know the model number? It appears to be built with the same parts as a B-71.
