Yes John, 1970's Victoria just a steer axle, welded straight ahead and a guess made about
spring pressure made on fitting - no load sharing. Usually poked the brake hoses through
a hole in the chassis. Gave 12 or 12.5 tonnes on the axle group, as for a bogie at the time.
Blitz occasionally enforced brakes to be connected, then later outlawed on the truck
maker's plated GCM. Steered an AT4 760 Dodge with one fitted, went ok.
Think the drive took most of the weight.
Greetings. Overnite I agree with you and that being the reason why I had not posted them until now- the green one was taken in July 1976 so winter rains may be the reason why. The red R model was Eddie Holland, the Steven's R model has been posted before as has the Tropic R model. Nifty used to drive the S Line, the Tatiara Atkinson was taken at Detco in 1974, the Bolch Atkinson I'm pretty sure I took at the Angaston cement works in the early 70's. More to come so don't adjust your sets. Next time.

When you worked for Spornes, there was a little tin of Silvafros and small paint brush in the toolbox, because you had to touch up the wheel nuts after changing a flat, and no work boots on the rubber floor mat. The trucks always looked 100%. A few companies I’ve worked for had the same ethics, and unfortunately or not, it’s never left me.
