Re: Brockway Pic of the Week 12-17-07

Tom It looks like Aldovin's Dairy Brockway that used to pull for Garden State Farms? in the 1960'S. Their Brockway had a 6-71 Detroit and 5X4 Trans.It sure sounded good on a quiet Sunday night. Joe D.

Re: Vent Door Question

Tom the reason the gasket worked on the 700 series Brock is they uswd the same basic cab as the R Model Mack. There are quite a few differences such as cowl,dash and others. Went to your garage with your Dad saw the wiring great job. Joe.

If the 359 has a 6-71 Detroit maybe the Blower is on drivers side of engine that would be one reason Dodge and some IHC'S used that blower location.

Brockway 700 They started putting Turbos on Detroit Diesels in the mid seventies I think.With a turbo on the 6-71 it raised the horsepower to 275 or so.

Pyrometers were used on turbocharged engines to measure the exhaust temperature. Any truck dealer or truck parts store will have them for sale. Try Cook Brothers or Claude Cyphers in Stroudsburg, Penna. Temple Hill Garage in Vails Gate New York might also be able to help you out.

Thanks for the replies to all. Stan I was starting to believe everyone that told me I was smoking geraniums when I asked them about that engine option.A Brock with the 8V53 would be about the rarest one ever made.Could you imagine the racket that engine would make as the 53 series are real firecrack...

8V-53 Detroits

Mike General Motors Diesel also made a 1-71 inthe 1940'S .I think the U.S.Navy bought most if not all of them. The 8V53 was offered in Brockways the 359,360,and 361 series I never saw one but remember the sales brochures. Maybe someone else out there remembers also or saw one.

Insurance

I second what Huskiedrive said. I have J.C. Taylor it is inexpensive but cannot pull your own trailer. I thinl I will go with Gulfway as you can pull your trailer and other antique trucks (owned).
