    That trailer would be a Brown. The reefer was a dummy unit. And the BJ and the bear kit is identical to the regular k100 aerodyne just different t box art and decals. Has the detroit allison engine tranny combo the real BJ and the bear truk had a Cummins ntc  400 and 13 spd fuller. Ertls great dane would be the closest thing i 1/25 scale.

    No prob was looking for 1:1 pics too not much luck.

    It was marketed as IH but I highly suspect it to be Neway. As far as the h63 really anything would work as to the best of my knowledge there was no factory air ride option.

    I agree This is also a family forum and the word forum means people can voice their opinions within the forum rules. You could have made your return comment without coping an attitude. Nobody has to ask for anybodies opinions or ideas here this is a forum a place to exchange opinions and ideas within the rules of the forum.

    Actually the 1977 general brochure on public fotki clearly shows several pics of an 8v92n in a general. AMT's kit is based  on a 77 general.

    The N 14 was offered in both electronic and mechanical versions side by side till at least 93. All N 14's 435 and up had the cast aluminium red valve covers while those under 435 had stamped steel black covers. The N 14 came in 330,350,370,410,435,460,500 and 525 hp versions as well as dual rated versions 330/370,370/435 and 435/500. I put hundreds of thousands of miles on these great engines.

    Correct the old 4 bag didn't have much travel. The torsion bar could ride well even better than the ag 100 but was a maintainance night mare. I believe the ag 100 came out in 78 or 79 It was upgraded in the 90s with bigger airlines and faster reacting valves. The ag 200 and 400 were much improved versions but the KW 8 bag is still a rougher ride than others on the market. I see alot more newer KWs with the ag400L now than anything . The ag400L is the same as the Peterbilt low leaf and for that matter the KW ag380 is the same as the Pete flex air. All Paccar.
