Jeff, I won't spout numbers, as I'm unsure of my math, but you will be able to go as fast as you dare, if you can pull the RPM....:w00t:

...how fast (fast being a relative term) could I expect this truck to go at say, 24 or 2500 ? Assuming I could afford the pay the gas bill LOL !


Here's a calculator. The internet says 10.00-20 tires are 39.4" in diameter.

Tony, my first thought is that engine is smaller than mine. Here are a couple pictures of the 280A in the WC. Can't see much, I'll have to get some from the other side.

My dad told of looking through holes in the firewall at night and seeing the red glow of the exhaust manifold at night on the old white he drove in the late 40s.

Here is a shot of the WB28 engine, it is hard to see how long it is as it goes into the firewall. It is identical in appearance to the WC's 280A.

Thanks John, it looks like it will run at least 55 or so, on paper at least.

Jeff;

I always liked the front end styling on those trucks, however, I think the designers sacrificed serviceability in the name of styling. Your truck along with Mack LH models come to mind, with those bat wing hoods and big sloping fenders, getting to some items is a challenge, I wonder how many fenders got scraped up while owners were just doing regular maintenance. Just last night I was changing the oil on my Diamond T and I have to remove 1 horn to get the oil filter cartridge out of it's canister!.
Congratulations on the trucks, I know it was a long time coming.

That tilt cab sure makes it easy to work on. I see some differences in the head, my water outlet to the radiator is at the front of the head. It's hard to tell from a photo if the blocks are the same. Your engine looks great though !

I wonder how many fenders got scraped up while owners were just doing regular maintenance.

One of my cousins told me about a driver that came into the garage with a White that was having trouble on the hills.
Couldn't get the carburetor adjusted to suit the guy. Ended up riding on the fender to get it right.
