My pleasure here's a few from my archive  a 1976 International 4300. the axle broke and along with the duals walked out of the axle housing, after that the locals got to it. The company I was truckin for gave me the drivetrain  a 1985 Cummins Recon 400 W/Spicer 6speed Main and Spicer 4speed Airshift Auxiliary. The best part is I got it shipped to Seattle for free.  I first learned how to drive in that Log tuck it's a Mack Superliner packed with 400 cummins & 13speed

So again I'm wandering around and I stumble upon these gems what a treat. Bolth 1975 Western Stars are powered by 671N Detroits W/915 Transmissions. Not sure about the Diamond Reo Gold Comet.  The crane or shovel Carrier is pretty neat. Hope you all enjoy there is more to come.....Daniel

That's pretty Neat. This Truck is in Naknek currently.   Have you ever bumped into John Woods a buddy of mine he owns/runs a LCM 6 named Arch 1 delivering goods up north, I think he's getting into mining up near Nome .
