John


A generous friend had one that he wasn't going to use and donated it to the cause:



This one has a manually shifted auxiliary rather than an air shift, but it has an aluminum case and the OTR gearset.

Thanks for the compliments, Mr. Hanson. I'm all set with transmissions right now, but I appreciate you letting me know about the 4 speed.

Nice KW Matt. Great to see that original picture.

I reckon those short stacks look so cool.

Thanks for the compliments guys. It's still got a lot of 40 year old electrical, fuel, and air lines that need attention but we're slowly getting it up to snuff.
