That looks familiar! Here's my 72 K360 when found. 318 Detroit, 13 speed, 34K Rockwell on Paige suspension.

Not to worry. After the AA meetings there is the BB meeting (Brockway Broke), followed by the CC meeting (Cub Cashless), then DD (Diesel Dependent), and EE (Everything Else). Local support groups are forming daily and I usually get home before 10 every night. So there is help. Only one followed me home last year and none so far this year.

Down to one and some pieces now. Had 5 at one time about 12 years ago. Over all I think I've had 9 different Brocks. All hobby trucks.

Dan what model Page+Page Suspension on your truck ? Does it look like a Mack Camelback or the one with big arm ? I have a 1970 KW with Page+Page looks like Mack camelback.

Stan looks similar to mine is 44,000 lb with Rockwell SRDD drop in rears also 44,000. I wonder if parts are avaible for them. The little i drove mine it seems OK.

I haven't driven mine on the road yet, just around a friends driveway. It seems ok and tracks well. The bushings may be ok - I hope! I'm guessing there are parts on somebody's shelf somewhere, but finding them might be a problem. If it becomes a big issue, I'll swap in some other suspension.

Stan one of the reasons I bought the KW 924 was the different specs 44 drop in Rockwells with Page+Page suspension. I never saw many Page+Page like yours and mine. There was a highway version with a long arm from one rear to other. I only saw this type out West. I do not think it was popular in the East.Like you mine seems OK but wondering about parts also.
