Geoff - I'm with you on the engines and wheels.

"Think of the resale" is salesman speak for "that's too hard to order, and I'm to damn lazy to actually have to work for my pay".

I've never liked a V8 no matter who made it  To me an inline 6 is simple, and gets the job done. The longer stroke and often slower turning inline provide the torque to move the load. I know Mack had good luck with their V8 but I still like an inline. Never got to play with an 8LXB Gardner, so can't speak to an 8 inline.  As far as spider/spoke wheels, there are those of us that STILL prefer them in North America, but I don't know if you could ever convince a salesman to order a truck with them now. I retro-fit them on my stuff when I get the chance.
Last thing I ordered new was a trailer, and had a heck of a time getting it on spokes. "Think of the re-sale"... well I don't cause when I'm done, the scrapper doesn't care!

wayne graham (3/22/2017)
Ron, I am nowhere near the cummins mech that you are. I have never understood the deal on the 903. Friend of mine had 2 and I drove one a bit. It seemed to be alright for it's hp rating which I believe was about 325. I don't think cummins ever got americans on board to start with as a lot of the criticism came right out of the shops. This motor came to us at a time when V8's were not doing well thanks to the green leakers and the yellow fuel guzzlers. I do think 10 yrs earlier the V8 would have been more well received. They sold a bunch of them in Versatile 4 wheel farm tractors and they did well as long as the pump stayed sealed. I had several farmers come to my place with questions like " where do I put this button and shims so I can pull a plow one gear faster. Same with the cats where does the allen wrench go. You guys down there proved the 903 worked but it never fared so well here. Guess that is how it goes.  

wayne the 903 deal has puzzeled me from the first trip to the u.s 20 odd yrs ago???? but I think you may have come up with part of the solution
with the u.s dislike of v8,s back then! , we never had the earlier 265 in trucks here and only a few v6 200,s [repowers] so drivers/owners had no pre concieved
opinions about them! also what you said about the shops rings true , by the 80,s we were importing container loads of used 903 and  nh engines to rebuild n replace leakers and  nearly all the 903 had some sort of  micky mouse repair done to them???? maybe cummins training program  failed or the mechanics had a dislike for them as well? I don't no?? I have fond memories of them even though they didn't make me much money lol
and thanks mate I value your thoughts on this subject

It does look like a corn binder with wagon wheels.



Almost every heavy truck in Australia had spider wheels (daytons, spokes,  wobbly wheels or what ever you blokes call them) back in the day and I reckon it was that way till only around 15 years ago and the Alcoa bud type rims started to take over 
Spiders are a lot tougher and a lot quicker to change but tyre technology and roads have improved a lot and people dont get any where near as many flat tyres and blow outs as they once did 

Paul




I'm sorry! LOL


All is good glad I made someone happy

Spider's as we call the spoked hubs were so popular in Australia they conversion kits to convert a 10 stud rim to a spider hub these were mainly fitted to European trucks MAN Volvo and Benzs I dont ever recall seeing them on Leylands but by this time Leyland were sliding pretty quick down the drain 

The adds of the day for these conversion kits explained why the spider hubs were so much better and the sold a lot of these kits over the years

Ron might be able to provide more information on the kit but it was a simple change over given enough time I could even find a old add for them I reckon

Drilling Company here used Challenger 3000 Crane Carrier mounted drill rigs for 30 years, most still have the VT903 5&4 in them. Not only did they move the rigs down the road, but when set up on a Well, they had a big "splitter" box that you would use like a big transfer case, then the VT903 ran the draw works and mud pumps (2 Gardner Denver duplex) on the deck. Those Engines took a beating as the rigs grossed out at around 100,000 LBS, and were driven all over the Country! Back in 1987, I picked one up at the yard in Phoenix, went to the old Roadrunner truck stop to get my permits, headed to Burbank CA to do a job for Lockheed Aircraft. I had never done a heavy haul before, so the permit was good for three days. One the morning of the second day, we had spent the night at a place with big enough parking that we could get the rig in. We headed down the road toward Lockheed. Just as I was about to turn into the gate, a motorcycle (CHIP) Cop pulled up beside my window and said "follow me", I said "I am just going right here" He said " I don't give a damn where you think you are going, I said to follow me". So I did, we went down the block to where they had a set of portable scales set up. The Gal in coveralls looked at the drill rig, and told the Cop, " I can't weigh that here" So I got a 5 motorcycle escort across town, put on the big platform scales, 36,000 over gross! I showed him my permits, and he said" where is your route permit?" I looked at the permits, and said "right here, Phoenix AZ to Burbank CA" He informed me that once I hit City limits, I needed a different permit to get o where I was going! I told him I was unaware of that, and he looked at all my paperwork, then informed me that since we were from out of state, I had to post the fine amount, or go to jail. The fine was around $2,800 IIRC, I got lucky as the owner of the Company was there to oversee the begining of the job with Lockheed, (this was a multi million dollar contract) and was able to convince the cops to let me take the rig to the job site (complete with 5 motorcycle escort) The owner talked to the judge, and everything was dropped, They just said " don't ever do it again" Learned a good lesson that day, from then on I made dang sure all my permits were in order, evn years later when I drove for Keen (I started with PDQ out of Cheyenne, but Keen bought them out while I was there) Back to the begining, The VT903 was a damn good engine, and the drilling Company still has some that are on there 5th or more major overhaul! They say it is getting harder to get pars though, I am good friends with the main shop mechanic that has been there 40 years, getting ready to retire. They also have a bunch of V-8 Detroits, here is a picture from the "bone yard"http://forums.justoldtrucks.com/uploads/images/226a3db0-4d4e-4e81-b44c-68dc.jpg
