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...

E361T Brockway - 4.10's to 3.70's

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.

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....

Speedometer Calibration

This post is a little more technical in depth (well actually a lot more...) but may help a few folks out. I am getting ready to replace the 4.10's in my Dad's 361 with 3.70's to reduce the rpm at 65mph. Once I do that the speedometer will be off so I'll need to correct it. With the 4.10's in the tru...

Re: Picked up a project today

If you need new floor pieces, Dane Baldwin is reproducing them now. He used NOS pieces for reference and it's a lot easier than making them.
