John, your Biederman is beautiful and has sure come a long way from the "before" photo that Jesse Walter sent me several years ago. Please keep us posted on your progress.

Dan,

I forgot to say with your question about the generator, that as far behind as the technology is on this truck, the fenders come off with 4 bolts and elastic stop nuts to make it easy to service it. They did think that far ahead.

You can pull that generator. I probably should have put it inside in York but we are full now. I also live 2 1/2 hours from York and have a lot of other stuff to get up there. Since there is interest, I'll post some more as I move along. I suspect there will be more interest when I take it to a show since most people have no idea what it is. What I really need is a month of uninterrupted time to move on it.

I see a gear driven generator. Is it replaceable without dropping the exhaust pipe . I can visualize myself leaning over the frame and enjoying the simplicity for an hour or so. Remember a cab is a cab with the same old instruments, hides the real working mechanism.

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?
