does anyone know if Jacobs ever built a brake for the 110? I've never heard of one but I don't know everything. I ran a old mack 15 ton haul truck that was repowered with a 6-71 with a straight pipe 110db. in the cab 130db. out side. Can't even think of what a 110 with straights and a jake could do

I think GMC was one of the few or only one that put a 6-110 in highway trucks. PIE (Pacific Intermountain Express) tried some in the 900 Series GMC'S in early 1950"S. It wasd a failure from article I read in "Wheels of Time" a few years back.There was a Hard Coal Hauler (Anthracite) in Northeastern Penna. that supposedly ran one in a 900GMC. Joe D.

That is the way I remember that article also. The 6-110 apparently did really well as a stationary engine that pretty much run at one rpm all the time. It did not like cycling between a low and high idle environment that a truck works in.

Early TS24's used them in the tractor before being replaced by 12v71

That is the correct position for the aux tranny. I liked that Mack put it closest to you as that was the stick you used the most.. when you get in you have to actually throw your right foot up and over to the foot feed. Once you are in position it is surprisingly comfortable.

I never noticed the position of the auxiliary as Maddog said. I bet Government safety laws would not let it fly in this day and age. Is it difficult to switch from throttle to brake ? Thanks Joe D.

Very good looking truck indeed.........only question I have never seen a tach where the numbers were backward so the needle went counterclockwise when the engine was revved up........bobby j.

I wondered if anyone else noticed that.

Very cool LT. A buddy of mine has a '58 Pete 281, that has similar tach set up. The numbers are in hundreds and with the tach (rotates counter-clockwise) sitting to the left of the speedo(which rotates clockwise),both needles go up at the same time while pointing at each other.Kinda cool.

I am interested in the green spatter paint that was used on the interior and a steering wheel that does not appear to have any cracks in it.

I see the rpm range is marked too.

That works also!

Trickier to back up though.
