Here is our latest addition or close to it. This will be my dad's replacement lowboy tractor for kw T-800 which he dislikes. It is a brother/sister to tom kiles which is #91619 I think. There were 10-12 consecutive that were spec'd almost identical:350 cummins,13spd,12f,44rears tilt hood and single frame. Got it in the shop and 5th wheel and rear fenders removed. Getting ready to get to work and then someone made us go out and dig a big hole!So hopefully we can get backfilled and get back in shop in time for spring fling.Enjoy...Brian

Tom,
Fortunately the truck is decent shape to start with,needs a rocker panel on passenger side, a couple repairs on the roof and a passenger side door. We are going to scrape off the frame under where the fifth wheel was then pull it back out and pressure wash and sanblast the frame(maybe just use needle gun?). Then paint the frame and cab. Cab has original paint on it but has alot of surface rust Truck is going to be a daily driver so we are not going to go to the extent of some of the beauties we see on here. Need to get her in service. Bigdogz is going to come over and put a jake on it among other things and maybe teach me something. Just have to make sure he doesn't leave with it when he goes.Brian

p.s. maybe i need to get gg2 down here to help, he seems to be on a tear :) anyone passing by on !-88 near oneonta look us up. Still have some coors light from a little brock-e-cue I had the other day at the shop.

Brian I was thinking the same thing. If I had GG2 hear in my shop he could take my whole truck apart in one day. I have already said he's like a bull in a china shop.
It's nice and warm here in Florida my wife had me washing windows today. :lol:

Tony,
GG2 already has offered to come down and help me with the "winter" excavating project, so I will just sneak off to Florida and wash your windows. It is not going to be over 20 degrees here for awhile.

Remember guys if you peak at all your presents before christmas you won't have any surprises at cortland(better than christmas). That being said I posted about this truck before and here is an update. I like to see what alot of you do and the craftsmanship. Having worked on a excavating project all winter we have kind of stalled in the shop. We decided to take truck to a guy about a mile down the road who is a welder/fabricator and street rod builder. This saves me throwing a welding helmet against the wall. He is going to repair the drip rail and weld in new rocker panels. I will probably have a friend paint it as well. I am hoping truck will be at the big show. Friggen gg2 is kicking my ars and I had to close the gap :)

Brian

p.s. took the windshields out and the rear window and the headliner etc. so as not burn them. I have no problems with someone else doing some of the work. I will stick to running dozer and excavator. Maybe when my kids get a little older and if I take ritalin or prozac(sp?) I will have the patience for the learning curve?

Thanks for the update Brian!

The 761 you brought to Harford was in the latest Double Clutch magazine. I'll have to get a copy of it for you!

Thanks Tom-My father heard a rumor it was in there and re-upped his subscription last night. I guess more importantly I would like to say like I said before that "Harford" should be a must for message board members,really enjoyed it(fewer brockways but more time to really check each one out). Paul- This is going to be a work truck but I wanted the drip rail and rockers not to be trial and error(we will be doing most of the other work ourselves). I have a hiddden agenda, My welder toured the brockway plant as a kid and has expressed interest in driving one to the show. So he gets a big kick out of each one I drag home and usually drops what he is doing in the weeks before cortland and welds up brockway stuff.So I figure if he goes to cortland he will be hooked and probably buy one of mine or another one :)

Kudos to everyone the board has been a happening place this last week. Thanks for all your updates and pics!Welcome back Brockway74-Josh what does a scottish southerner accent sound like(happy b-day the other day)?

If I had any reservations about having someone else do the welding they are quickly forgotten!!!!!!

Didn't work today so my dad and I helped Mike wire brush out the old caulk that goes over seam where roof panel meets drip rail. Wondered what the best practice is caulk with paintable caulk and then paint? He will probably have all the welding done quicker than I can do a septic system. Sometimes it pays to step aside and let the pros work, like when I have to go in and fix a "weekend warriors" work(no military reference implied emery-what we call a guy with a mini excavator)!

while we were working an older gent walked in and said he drove 60's brockway bakery truck out of cortland sounded like "cobako" which he said was bought out by durkee?anyone have a clue?

I used to sneak in the Durkee's bakery on my way home from school and wait for a fresh baked, un-sliced loaf of wonder bread to fall off the conveyer (sometimes we helped it) Then we could have it to eat on the way home and "ruin our appetites" for supper. As I remember, it was down an alley way off Main St, Homer behind the bank or next block north.

Brian thanks for the update. Looks like you're pushing a lot a gas down that tunnel ram manifold with the dual quads carburetors?
:roll: Keep the pictures coming?

The only ars that is gettin kicked is mine. each time i try to get to the shop some thing or some one wants me. i got into the shop at 5:15 am this morning and left at 7:30 to fix a water line. all the lites and horns are on the roof . all the new rubber for front and rear window will be here tomarrow. ok, i am going to break a rule, since new headlight buckets are nor avalible i an going to install superliner headlights in fenders. i dont have alot of time left to finish this and the good weather is getting closer and now have work for the truck pulling a dump trailer for a local scrap yard to the rail siding. the truck also has to have bright lights for early morn. and late nite covert operations.it may look differentbut i have seen a 761 with the dual lites and it dont look bad. i also found some one with 3 brand new 761 bumpers, can get one and will some day have it chromed. Brian, this isnt a race, if it gets to be to much for you, i would love to take owner ship. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks for the pic Tom-we decided to go with the normal grill insert as opposed to what it had at cortland.Made it look much better. I will have some more pics tomorrow am of our progress. Tony the truck is at mike's shop,i spent all my money on brocks so no street rods for me yet. It makes for a nice atmosphere though brockway and supercharged v-8's all around. I will have to post some pics for you 33or34 ford 2 dr,50 chevy,27 chevy pickup(my favorite)and some others.gg2-i am used to stress but if you call my house late a couple nights in a row about brockways my wife will probably put a nice lineup in the for sale section :)

Brian - truck is looking good. Sometimes it's best to have someone else do the work and just pay the bill. Stan
