Re: Brockway truck show maybe?

I believe in the last newsletter Tom Kile mentioned that the construction was delayed for a year. I will have to double check it tonight when I get home. Regardless even if there was construction they would find somewhere else to have the parade and show. Other than that, the show is always on the s...

Re: Brockway 154TS

In one of my first conversations with Craig Morgan years ago, he mentioned seeing a Brockway with dual updraft carbs and how cool it was. A few years ago at Macungie I was able to purchase a 154TS Instruction Manual and it tells you how to set up and sync the dual updraft carbs. It also mentions how...

Re: Brockway Pic of the Week 10-10-11

Thanks for the info Steve, this is really an interesting truck. The auxiliary is the same one my 1950 260XW parts truck has , a 2A-62. Looks like they made 2 versions of this trans, one with 2:1 reduction and one with 1:58:1 reduction.

Re: E361T Brockway - 4.10's to 3.70's

I installed the pinion cage and then reset the gears to exactly where they were before I disassembled everything. I made several small changes, double checked the pattern and made sure the back lash was very close to where it was... https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/1024x768q90/922/NYBn...

Re: E361T Brockway - 4.10's to 3.70's

To get the preload correct I had to take several thousandths off of the bearing spacer. The space was a little of a half an inch thick to start with. https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/1024x768q90/921/0VIn0k.jpg Once I was happy with the preload I made a seal installer from a piece o...

Re: E361T Brockway - 4.10's to 3.70's

Hi Stan, you are correct! I made the wood box when I shipped my Sheppard 592 box back to the factory in Hanover to be gone through. My Brother showed up one day with the wheels from an old hose reel and I thought they would make it a alot easier to move around the garage. More updates to follow... Tom

Re: E361T Brockway - 4.10's to 3.70's

If you remember I wound up having to change the yoke on the original rear to go from 1810 series joints to 1710 series. Well this rear came with a 1760 series joint yoke so I planned on using the one from the 4.10’s. I was able to dig up the 1710 part number (6-4-9181-1X) and sure enough I found one...

Re: Brockway Scranton Factory Branch

Most of the tracks are going but there still a small section in the parking lot of the bar next door, maybe 20' or so??? Actually there is a small building still there that may have operated a signal arm for the tracks at one time? I'll have to ask a guy a work, he is a train buff and will know for ...

Brockway Scranton Factory Branch

Last year at Cortland I was able to purchase a handful of pics from the Cortland Historical Society. As I was thumbing through the albums on Main St during the show, I quickly realized I found some pics of the factory branch in Scranton. The giveaway for me was the bar next door with the large capit...

Re: Break downs

Wow, that must have been a hard one to diagnose... I would have never guess the line inside the tanks rusted, Those earlier Durmax's didn't have lift pumps in the tank either.

Re: Ever had this happen??

Hey Stretch...

Do you think you may have some air in the system? When I replaced the pump on the 270 in the 68 360 it took me a while to bleed all the air out of the system.

Re: Speedometer Calibration

Thanks Brandon, good to know... So the Huskidrive trucks must have used electric actuators for the rear instead of air.

Re: Speedometer Calibration

This is what the speedometer adapter looks like in my '55 155W. I would have to believe it is similar in a Huskidrive truck but hoping someone can confirm... https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/1024x768q90/924/SQFUCw.jpg https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/1024x768q90/922/B...

Re: Speedometer Calibration

My 155W has a 2 speed Eaton rear. There is a 12” long cable that comes off of the speedo, and the into another ratio adapter. This adapter is controlled with the same air that shifts the two speed. There will be a ratio stamped on it that matches the ratio of your 2 speed. My truck originally had 6....
