glad you all liked them I no nothing about them but I find it interesting how tough there backend was
Mack truck diffs are known for being super tough yet for super heavy haulage jobs they used to break axles I have never known it to happen to a Mack but then again I have never being involved with these big lifts of a couple of hundred tons
I also find it amazing that new superliners had the backends removed and Bertliet installed no problems again
Those big Leader trucks were something different altogether

I have no idea how many were sold out here but I doubt it was many

The Scania V8 was an option engine in Mack's, also the drive axle in a Scania is very similar looking and constructed to the Mack, they both use the bolted splined end cap on the floating half shaft.
