Huskidrive in the weeds

Postby jasondunn » Thu May 23, 2013 8:44 am

I found this 361 Huskidrive in a lot behind a local repair shop in Alabaster, Alabama. The mechanic said that it belonged to the lady who owned the property and that she wouldn't sell it, as it had belonged to her husband. I've lived down here for the past 14 years, but I grew up in Owego, NY, not too far from Cortland. This is the first Brockway I've seen this far south. It's in really bad shape, tragic.

Must have either been re powered or someone just put the emblems on it. It has a naturally aspirated Cummins in it.

I thought the PT270 (which is what should be in it) was naturally aspirated?

Nope, most certainly turbo charged. I owned one.

As far as I know any Cummins 855 over 250 HP is turbcharged. Huskiedrives had the 270 Power Torque and were all Turbocharged.Joe D.

Joe I think the Cummins Super 250 (927cui) came with a 270 hp option, (non turbo) so I've been told

Ernie that could be. I was saying about the 855 Cummins. We had a Super 250 in a IH 2070. Joe D.
