My grandfather was a trucker and in his stuff was a very large, ancient Fontaine No Slack Fifth Wheel.  I don't suppose anyone out there has any info on this do they?

Thank you in advance.

on the east coast, fontaine were quite common . of the 50-60 wheels i installed while at waterbury mack; most were fontaine. as with everything, the wheels  were made cheaper with time..no more solid 2 in. cross pins; separate short pins sitting in rubber mounts.  alot of holland wheels were put on new trucks.  i wouldn't junk that wheel .

Hello,

I want to thank you all for your information.  My Grandfather lived in Oklahoma his entire life so evidently they bought Fontaine fifth wheels here also.  I wish we had one of his trucks to put the wheel on but unfortunately do not.  I don't need it but don't want to junk something that can be used so any suggestions would be great.

Thank you in advance
