Jim-Never saw that before-this year at NH show?  Is it an "X" with with big rear?

Yes, this was the Granite State show 2018. 

I was right there and didn't check the tag.  Dunno why???  I don't believe it is an X though because it is running tubeless rubber and an X should have tube type 24" rubber.  There is no tubeless rim for the 24" spoke as you know.

It doesn't cost anything to pay attention.

Beauty! Questions. Doesn't appear to have a long hood. Why the thermodyne emblam? Was it converted to diesel?

The B-70's didn't have a long hood.  B-70 was the same hood length as the B-61.  B-71 and up had longer hoods.

Thermodyne represent overhead valves so the emblem can be on either gasoline or diesel engines with overhead valves.  A B-20 with a flathead engine (valve in block) would be a Mack Magnadyne for example.

if both Thermodyne emblems are on the front of the hood it also means it that at least the hood started out on a gas job overhead valve truck. Diesels always read Thermodyne Diesel on both sides not Diesel Thermodyne on the passenger side...

I am near Keene which is the other side of the state.  Went to school at UNH/Durham several decades ago.

The seacoast is always booming with activity plus Rt. 95 is the way in and out of Maine.  Definitely lots to see.

Realized I didn't answer the question.  Yes, it is has been converted to a diesel.
