yes that's the one but what type of suspension did they have. the tridrive's here in B C have to have all three axle with same suspension so they all have air bag's.

Local fellow has a really nice Tridrive B dump.  I don't recall what it has for suspension?    In the slow truck race at the local show...I'm usually too far ahead to see....LOL!!!

I 'm seem to remember that the set up was similar to Chalmers tri axle suspension.

This was at the Ohio Vintage Truck Jamboree in 2012. A 1964 as I recall he also had the one Matt Pfahl has now,  John DeChant. There was a Tri Drive B Mixer at the MACK Pavilion in the 1964 NY Worlds Fair. I read some where it later suffered from a badly cracked chassis.

I found a couple of pictures of Matt's truck which could put some light on the matter of question. But seems like you have to provide the figuring out yourself.
