OK, OK I'll take a current chassis picture. I bought an old Duplex fire truck in El Paso off of one of the military bases down there and robbed the cab (mine was riddled with metal maggots) and the axles. Duplex used the same Timken axles. Actually was able to swap the hubs on the rear axle but had to swap the entire front axle as they were different spindles. Fortunately my drive train was good. The old JXLD Herc had a stuck valve but ran good otherwise. I ended up with a spare transmission from the Duplex and sold the RXC out of it. The shipping on the Duplex was less than the bodywork would have been on my cab. The door posts were gone, the windshield frames were gone etc. The cab on the Duplex was perfect, just dusty and a little surface rust.

I'm not there for the paint jobs either.
The running gear is good enough for me.

oh, we care! I do prefer looking at chassis more than cabs, but of course there's the practicality of having a cab too.

You mentioned you replaced budds for spoke wheels. Could you find hubs that readily? Or were the axles a common design?

John-------Speaking for myself and maybe others............With the cab out of the way we can better see the details of that unit as opposed to many "cookie cutters" .

That truck below is a WWII F-1. Biederman probably had their highest production during the war and built those as tractors, wreckers and crane carriers etc. Many survived. A member here in MD has one with the crane still intact. I'll post a picture as soon as I install my cab. Like I said, I have the frame and running gear finished, engine installed and the cab is at the painter. I should have it on shortly after convention. I'd bring it to York if there was anything to see. I really wanted to have it ready for York but society business has gotten in the way. I'm happy to see interest in it. I wasn't sure how many people really cared.

Jovan Bring to York what you have done of the B'man. We all like to see works in progress!! Swishy The B'man shift plate is very interesting. Back in the early 1980's. I got my first big antique truck -a 1947 direct drive Sterling with a single disc Cummins. The trans shift pattern was just like that on the B'man truck-- from 4th to 5th was up , over to your left, then up again. With the heavy Sterling and a tired old Cummins, I did a LOT of the 4th to 5th and back to 4th shifting. Always seemed like the dumbest shift pattern to me.

Life  is like a roll of toilet paper the closer  you get to the end, the faster it goes!  Enjoy each day.
