is that just my eyes or is the motor on on an angle .One would think for all of the special parts made for the truck it would be cheaper and easier to make a proper cab Im sure they had there reasons.

Paul, it's not uncommon to lay those Cummins motors over a bit to give a bit more room.
The Louisville's have them laying over a bit to get the clutch linkage in.
I can't see where the air inlet pipe goes between the turbo and inlet manifold on it.

Cam it never ceases to amaze me, that when we have the width of the world to play with...
That we have only been allowed to play within 34 inches of rails.

I was told it all started when the mechanic got caught wth the engineers daughter?


Chocs 8-)

I reckon that motor is laying over other wise by the time you got a gearstick in that narrow cab the drivers seat would be 6" wide.

The wider rails in the Atkinson's don't seem to make much difference, though the narrower ones on some of Europeans make it tricky to fit some things in.

Bringing this back to the top with another oddity, the C510 Brute. The below is one of very few left over in Israel by US contractors when they finished whatever they were doing.


Pics by Jacob Aboody who drove the thing many years ago for a couple of days.

Cheers

the Brute originated from the Canada side of the border
Most noticbly by the set back front axle & torque rods too front axle
The Brutes were mainly for heavy duty work eg: construction n tippr
the pic up above looks a bit agricultural with the squarish cnrz to the cab
