W900A in the weeds

Recommended Posts

When I was out looking at some old critters this last Saturday I found a farm with an assortment of KW's. In the bunch is this 79 W900A longhood. 3408 cat, twin counter shaft Spicer brownie with 13sp and some real tough rear drives-DT480P Eatons. It got laid over in a ditch with a loaded lowboy, put a kink in left rail and distorted the top of cab. He will sell it, but for too much.

Judging from the dust collecting on the fan belts (and price tag), that A-model may have found its grave..... :( 

 

What's he want for it anyway?

                               I didn't talk price because 900 longhoods are always heirlooms in the owners eyes.  4 States Truck parts sells a new 74" hood for $2,890.

                               A standard W900 hood is 63". You can build a W900A out of a W900 buy moving the cab back 11" and installing the new hood. It's not

                                that difficult and allot cheaper.

Interesting rubber block arrangement on the rear suspension never seen one quite like it!

                               That center block up's the rating to 48,000 lb, that suspension is RS480

                                 Oh it most certainly is. I know the difference between a standard w900 and a 900A. Here is a standard.

Are you saying that the A denotes long hood?  Because my 1979 w900a was not a long hood.
