In a short and simple answer, no a R 700 isnt for a roadt train spec or b double
First Mack b doubles in Australia were R600s

Plenty of road trains were R 600

They were longer, gave a smoother ride (debatable) could fit a bigger variety of motors in them

Oh and the 18 speed box isnt needed in a Mack for road train work

Thats making a short answer long

Yep, that style of things, the E6 Mack is a fairly compact motor so not a lot of other motors will fit in the same size hole
