Mike, C would designate a C180 Cummins which was long out of production before the 700's came out. A 776 is a mid length hood truck (somewhere in between a 758 and 761), that was pretty popular with the NYS DOT. And LL is tandem chassis. Something is wrong with that engine code though. Where did you find that?

That is an error from the factory. It should be an 'E' as the truck has a Detroit Diesel 6-71, 238 horsepower.

The C designation in the forementioned truck stands for a 3208 Cat- small V-8.
Have seen (in pics) one other with this engine- was for sale in Big Truck trader a few years ago, near Buffalo. pretty rare if you ask me..

I saw pictures of said truck. It has a long hood definitely not a 776 hood. Ido not know if hood was extended but front axle has a big setback.It has a 6-71 19 speed with a 4 way,long wb. tandem. Joe D.

Yea it's an oddball, They stuck a frame extension on the front, Put a 761 hood on, and re-powered it with a 6-71. Upon first glance it looks like a 762 with the big extensions, but it's not... Too bad because it would have been a neat truck if it was left original.

that is the truck on auction time, it was a 3208 and swapped with a 6-71. 761 hood added to make lenght work. other than that it would be a nice truck to have. it was on there some time ago with dump box on it.

wow if that isnt the biggest abortion that ive seen, i dont know what is. the truck looks to have its original frame. 18'' or 24'' in front frame for a front mount pto. maybe born a plow truck or a mixer. but for some reason people think its easier to extend the front of the truck to fit a dofferent motor in it. they took advantage of the front frame rail that was already there, mounted the radiator to the very front and worked there way back. with all the drilling for new holes for motor mounts and radiator mounts, you would think they would do it right the first time and set it in the truck in a somewhat close position like the factory.

cash has nothing to do with it. its still the same job to set the motor in the desired position. they probably have more work in this job than it was to pull the original motor out and make the motor fit to the radiator.

also paul, 776's already have a small doghouse in the cab. not as big as a 758 or 759, but enough that the throttle pedal shaft goes through the side of the doghouse.

I stumbled on the answer to this riddle last year. I stopped to look at a dm 492? air force tanker on rt.8, this truck had a 3208 as well. Much to my surprise no dog house. Asked bigdogz if he had ever seen one and he told me yes and that brockway did the same thing with 776 with 3208 which is a little throwaway v-8. Not to long after this truck popped up. i can't remember if dave has a factory photo or saw one in person? So this explains the moving forward in lieu of cutting into cab.......Brian

Coldiron Fuel here in Elmira had a couple 700's (776 i think) with the 3208 in them. Open up the hood and look down. That little Cat was lost in that huge engine bay! Boy were they easy to work on though. Lots of room around everything.

I've noticed not all 776's had a doghouse if you ordered the short 3208 there was no doghouse and go pedal was floor mounted. I wish they would have installed a doghouse and slid the trans back. This would have kept all the cool 776 lines. Probably would have been cheaper than moving all that stuff foreward. Paul

it was real easy to move all stuff forward. all that needed to do was get 761 hood and move rad. forward. other wise you have to cut fire wall and floor plates and install house. i think
