Five Spoke Dayton ?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I got all of my b 75's home and started looking them over, On the rear bogie of one of them it has 5 spoke dayton wheels. The front axle is 6 spoke. all my other trucks are 6 spoke too. Is this normal? It has mack cast on them.

Fred,

On my 48 S75 they are six spokes as well, I do not think I have ever seen a Dayton with 5 spokes. I bet some of the guys on the ATHS board would know more about this.

I would think it would have to do with weight rating?

I can't say for sure what my B is 5 or 6?

I think its dependant on the weight rating

most of the 34K camalback tandem rear axels I have seen have the 5 spoke daytons.

I have seen the 6 spoke and they were on heavy camelback tandem axels. I have seen some roll offs and 6 wheelers with the 6 spoke

Fred,

The older ones were all 6 spoke and had the smaller "pinned " wheel studs,they went to a 5 spoke hub about '64.These also had the larger wheel studs.From then on,the 6 spoke hubs where only used on the 44k and larger rated axles.

Hi,

Thanks for all the replies, That makes sence because all of my other trucks are 63 or older, the b75 that I was looking at is a 65 model, with 34,000 pound bogie. So superdog... had time to look at that page and page suspension for me yet???

Thanks
