Re: 1975 758 for sale

Joe D - Don's Upholstery in Cortland has the patterns for the Brockway interiors, including the 700 series I believe. I'm sure they could make something for the cab. The complete kit for a 300 series is around $400 so it's affordable.

Re: P. Wajer 359

Looks like a nice rig. Any idea if they were Detroit or Cummins?

Re: Identity crisis

The truck was a daily worker up until about 2 years ago. The company bought a lighter empty weight truck with an aluminum body to be able to carry more load and meet NY bridge laws on consecutive axles. The Brockway needs a tag axle to be legal with a full load. She still gets used when two trucks a...

Chemung County Hwy.

Like many of the municipalities in the northeast, Chemung Co. Hwy Dept. utilized Brockway trucks in their fleet. Although the picture is a little fuzzy, here a is an example of one of the county's N361's set up with a full compliment of plow equipment. The Brocks were delivered out of the Elmira fac...

Re: Prototype?

This is the more popular picture of the experimental truck made by Brockway for the 1978 model year. There are actually several photos in existence showing the truck with different headlights and bumper mock-ups. I've never seen the blue truck photo before.

Re: NYS Fairground Highway EXPOu

That's great Stretch. These news guys need to understand how old guys actually worked hard at their jobs. No AC or power steering. No lasers on the dozer for grade etc.. The crews today scream if the AC don't work in their air ride cab!

Identity crisis

Here's a picture of a 359 with an identity crisis. It doesn't know what it is because it started life as a 358 with 504 V8 Cummins RT-613 RoadRanger and SQHD Rockwell rears with 5.40 ratio. When the owner and I rebuilt it, the truck ended up as a 359 NTC-400 Cummins, RTO-12513 RoadRanger and the SQH...

Re: C.C. Lounsbury

Yes, thanks Pokey. The few Brockway nuts that still use this forum will have to step up and keep posting. I'll dig up some pictures too.

Re: C.C. Lounsbury

Sweet little Brockway. It would be a great candidate for a Dodge Cummins upgrade like Tom Millard did to his truck. I like the classic look along with a modern drivetrain so it is usable in today's world of fast traffic.

Re: 776

10 years ago it looked worthy of being restored. Maybe someone saved it. If it's still in the same spot, it might not be so good now.

Re: A Brockway Story

Thanks for being a vintage Brockway ambassador. If more policemen could learn about how much we love our trucks and care for them, they would be less apt to harass the next guy. I know they have a job to do, and it's my wife and kids out on the road they're helping to protect. I'm sure those two guy...

Re: Colonial Board Co. 358

If I remember correctly, when the 300 series was introduced in 1965, the vertical exhaust was an option, with under-body exhaust as standard equipment. Some freight companies like Penn Yan Express purchased only under-body exhaust systems on their Brockways to keep their van trailers clean. Even PYE...

Re: Interesting

That's interesting, but I've never seen it in print anywhere else, nor have I ever heard of any Brockway's built that way. 637 CI V8 ? I always thought the big GMC gas engine was the V12 based on components from 2 V6's but after a little research I found this -- https://macsmotorcitygarage.com/now-h...

Re: Hello

Doug - you stand a far greater chance of breaking the center panel leaving the corners in place. Because the corners are curved they are much more rigid and can take the forces applied when drawing the rubber over the edge of the glass as things finally settle into place. The main center panel isn't...

Re: Hello

Not too bad of a job. Pull the lock strap, then take the corner glass out first. Pull the division bars. Now mark where the ends of the windshield are in relation to center line of the truck. Now take out the windshield. Installation is the reverse. Be sure to center the new windshield on your marks...

Re: SAE Bellhousing Question

Engine lays over for clearance for the drivers foot. Cummins air intake on the heads would make the foot well on the drivers side equal to that of the passenger if the engine was upright in a snub-nose low cab 358. With the engine laid over there was no room for a turbocharger so it limited engine H...

Re: SAE Bellhousing Question

The engine flywheel housing and transmission bell-housing size are largely determined by the clutch type and size. Most everything had a 14" clutch back then, with the larger 15" clutch being spec'd for heavy duty. As the engine grew in HP, the 15" clutch became more popular as did th...

Re: Hello

Good Brockways and parts trucks or stockpiles of parts are still out there waiting to be found. Never let your attention falter. Look, ask questions, follow up on leads or rumors. You might just find the next big haul.
