I've been dreading pulling the front hubs, This truck was in a flood when it was in South Dakota and was in standing water up to the hubcaps for quite some time, you can still see the water line on the Dayton wheels. I expected the wheel bearings to be full of rust and ruined. The front hubcaps are threaded and were on TIGHT. The White front hubcap has an octagonal shape and is 4 inches in diameter. I had no luck sourcing a 4" 8 sided socket, so I had a friend make me a tool. The tool worked well, but I still had to use a 4 foot cheater pipe on my breaker bar to break the hub caps loose, they were that tight. With the spindle nut removed the hubs came off easily and revealed a nasty liquidy goop inside, which surprisingly seems to have preserved the bearings. However the brake drums are pretty rusty and rough looking, I think they will have to be turned. I still need to clean up the brake shoes and see if the linings can be re-used. I was surprised to find the brakes shoes were made by Timken, I did not realize Timken was in the brake business. Here are a few photos.

I'm pretty sure Rockwell Standard-the successor to Timken were definitely in the brake business Jeff-Stopmaster wedge brakes and Cammaster S-cams were a Rockwell product, I think.

Here I sit, broken hearted,
rolled into the corner only to gather dust
yearning to be loved, a little grease or maybe some air for one of my tires, even a warm hand touching the hood, opening a door
every day I wake hoping today is the day,
as the sun comes up, my hopes grow,
Quiet, I hear foot steps, the big door latch clicks, is today the day? the door slides open, the sun shines in, is today the day?
The man who's supposed to be taking care of me walks in, oh no he's going back over to that oversized thing parked in the doorway. Maybe he's going to pull it out side to get it out of my way. It sounds like it has nasal problems every time it starts, then I have to breath it's foul gases. Finally it's moving, is today the day? Shhh my caretakers coming back and he left that damn thing running, my heart sinks. It's not looking good today, the door slides shut. DAMM that big truck! When will I be loved? Here I sit broken hearted! Gathering dust and hoping my day will come.

Chopped Liver, I've got my own rope thank you very much.

The WB28 got some love last week, the oil pan is painted with Rust Seal and I was planning to paint the block with Motor Coater this week, and get the engine re-assembled so I can run it on the stand. But the Federal developed some cooling issues on it's 16 mile round trip this weekend so now I need to pull the radiator and flush the cooling system. Always something !

I worked at union carbide linde div. they had the old whites with the six engine. Had cooper coils wrapped around exhaust pipes, then would retard timing to make engine run hot,  open valve so liquid nitrogen would flow thru cooper coils to convert from liquid to gas. the valves in the engine didn't last long. I remember seeing racks with a half doz. heads ready to go.

Work has been progressing slowly on the WB28. The donor White 280A engine from the WC28 was running great with no smoke when it was removed. so the engine is getting a cosmetic restoration. All the accessories including the oil pan were removed. The water pump and fuel pump were rebuilt, the air compressor repaired, and the generator and starter cleaned up. The block was painted with KBS Chevrolet Grey Motor Coater, while the accessories got the gloss black Motor Coater. The oil filter canister was painted with red Motor Coater, which matched the original red perfectly. The engine is mostly assembled now, and I should be able to run it on the stand very soon. 

This is the engine after it was removed in 2016.
