A 1940s Autocar doing 1970s Work

A 1940s Autocar doing 1970s Work

When doing demolition work contractors often used their oldest and most rugged trucks. The photos below show a truck typical of a 1960s scene where the dump body was taken off a newer faster truck because it was almost worn out. Putting on this job will probably be the last for both the truck and body.

Notice that the cab protector is much higher than it needs to be; it was built for a new cab that was higher off the frame. The body is the Sheepscot #26115 solid urethane with the load molded in. I machined much of the load out before putting the demolition material load back in.

This was built for a friend's layout upon which the Rancid Creek Railroad delivers bad meat among other things.

Fifth Wheels for Highway Tractors

We're changing the way we make fifth wheels. The wheel itself, (the plate) is the same cast metal one we've been using for years. The mounting plate we were using is OK but it is tricky to get the fifth wheel so it pivots easily and allows the fifth wheel to tilt back when the truck is displayed without a trailer and to fit flat against the under side of the trailer when necessary.

Exhaust Systems for Sheepscot Kits

Exhaust Systems on Sheepscot Kits

I have changed my mind about the best way to build an exhaust system. The use of a muffler/stack casting presents a few problems like shortening the muffler, drilling the bottom of the muffler to accept the exhaust pipe, and keeping the pipe and stack in alignment with a good glue joint.
