Did the Mack's of that size use the same axles and spoke hubs as my Diamond T and the prewar Studebaker wrecker at Macungie??? Or did they build their own??

looks like Erie wheels to me similar in style to a B42 from 59-61. dunno why Mack did it but those are the only years on B42's they used those hubs with the hidden bolts

The D-T and small Mack axles were sourced from Clark.  I think the Stude is the same but I have never really investigated totally.

Here is the same picture before I hit the button to make it black and white.  2019 Worcester Sand & Gravel Show.

Jim

The Stude has the same Clark axles as the father and son who own the prewar Stude wrecker at Macungie visited with me as to where to get the lug crimps.
