That is the one on my avatar and i do have my work cut out for me but like i said it is mechanically perfect. It will run up and down the road for an hour or so until you can't breathe becuase the muffler is the cab! I bealive that it is an earlier model but it is supposed to be a '71. I dont think that i could really go wrong because i only paid $200 for it. the engine is worth 2500 on ebay so if i know that i can get my moneys worth out of it. There is another truck by my house that i think i can also get for cheap that has the parts i need but I figured i'd see what else is in brockway land! 8)

I have seen in 1968 Overdrive That in some trucks there were Pyrometers and oil temperature gauges. Where these used only on certain engines or were they customers choice. If they could have been installed on an E361 does anyone have the assembly that they would like to Sell. Thanx 8)

Pyrometers were used on turbocharged engines to measure the exhaust temperature. Any truck dealer or truck parts store will have them for sale. Try Cook Brothers or Claude Cyphers in Stroudsburg, Penna. Temple Hill Garage in Vails Gate New York might also be able to help you out.

They were used more on cummins for engines that lug so that the engines dont melt pistons or burn valves. Detroits dont lug but i thought that having the Bracket and gauges in my truck would give it an extra touch that a lot of other trucks dont have. Thanks for your help. 8)

Brockway used pyrometers manufactured by Isspro, a company that's still in business. New and used units can be found on Ebay and new units can be purchased through most any heavy truck dealer or parts house. There are three parts, the dash gauge, the wiring harness (which can't be cut or lengthened) and the probe or sending unit (called a thermocouple). Typically on a engine that doesn't have a pyrometer, a 1/4 " female pipe thread bushing needs to be welded into the exhaust pipe 8 - 10 inches downstream of the turbo. This is for the probe. The dash guage needs no power to it unless it has an internal bulb for the dash lights. Simple ! Stan 8)

Brockway700...

If you have the serial number we can probably narrow down what year your 361 is...

I am going to look into that, I just think that it would give the truck an extra touch. I will get the serial number when i go to work so that we can get the year figured out. Thanks for your help guys! Also i am going to try to find another cab to replace that one. The left corner post is bad the back panel, The roof, Right door, and infront of both doors has holes but so do most cabs. Would it be worth buying parts to fix the cab or just replace it. Craig morgan has a new roof and he can get me a new back panel but Is it worth it to replace all that or just buy a new cab for about 1K. I am guessing that the roof would be about 150 and the back panel about 100-150 also. What are your thoughts. I am only 14 and am a beginner at body work.

Okay it is a model E361T and the serial number plate reads: E361T-13-72711. What is the thirteen in between the model and serial number stand for. My father believes that it may be an old Grand union Semi tractor? The person i bought it from put the body on to haul dirt around his yard as he dug a pond.

Brockway 700 They started putting Turbos on Detroit Diesels in the mid seventies I think.With a turbo on the 6-71 it raised the horsepower to 275 or so. With the addition of the turbo on Detroits a pyrometer was a nice option also. They were not used on low RPM high torque engines only but on any engine with a turbo for when pulling a grade loaded you would have to back out of it when exhaust temp. reached certain Degrees.The 8V-71 with a turbo went up to 350 HP. and more.

Based on my list, it looks like it may be a 1970. I'm not sure what the 13 is for. Check out this link...

Did you get the Vin with the 13 off the frame rail? Im not 100% sure but on my tractors they had 160 in the middle I believe for the wheelbase. Example K361TL-160-85157 the truck is a 160inch wheelbase. Maybe you missed a zero and is a 130 inch wheelbase on the truck. Throw a tape from center to center on each axel. Frank
