Told it is a 1969.

Cat 1674
RTO 9513
38k sqhd tandems
20k pusher
20k front
Double frame
Triple frame from cab to rears to support crane.
Grain dump body.

I don't know what it was originally, but a HEMTT crane was mounted behind the cab along with grain body.

Was told it was built from 3 parts trucks in 2001. I'm having a hard time finding information on this truck. Like:

Where are the fuses/circuit breakers?
How does the hydraulic steering assist work?
Why is there no thermostat or fan clutch? (Seems like there is only an air powered grill shutter that is thermostat controlled.)

The most tiring thing about it is the steering g play. It would be nice to tighten it up.

Fan clutches are a relatively new thing, your truck pre dates them. It should have an engine thermostat assisted with the shutters.
