Hello and thank you for allowing me to become a member of the forum. I unlike most of you have spent a limited amount of time behind the wheel. I spent ten years as a driver for the U.S. Postal Service and Con M Trucking. I chose a different career path and it was the right move for me. My career as a funeral home manager/ funeral director/embalmer is nearing it's end as retirement is on the horizon. My love of class eight trucks and driving those rigs is still in my blood. My goal, upon my retirement, is to purchase a 1967-68 GMC Crackerbox two axle city tractor and restore it to it's former glory. I look forward to communicating with Crackerbox experts to guide me toward my goal.

Thank you! Yes, the standard in the two axle city tractor seems to be the 6V71. I believe it is also called a DD 238 but I am not positive. Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong. Thanks again for the welcome and I look forward to being further educated in my quest.
