The b42 is in my shop with the 6v53 Detroit engine.  The b61 is my latest acquisition.  The cab is pretty bad, I will be keeping my b42 cab...though not much better that the b61.  Yes the triplex transmission is in the b61 (in the weeds)  I was not able to crawl under the b61 since it is settled down in the dirt to get a number off the Trans.  So I'm not sure exactly what model.  I'm going with what the owner has told me. I wanted to bar the engine over but I can't get a breaker bar in there.  I assume it's seized.

Good thinking!!! I didn't even look.  I did crawl in the cab but the drivers seat looked like it had melted and I layed an old board across to get the paaenger door open.

Getting a double over would be great!  But probably not my luck.  We will see.  I have to go to NJ this weekend for my Daughters Cheerleading Competition, but hopefully will have it home next weekend.  Will probably take it to my buddies Junk Yard where I can take my time to salvage what I can.
