Moshe, if I were you I would not be concerned about joining the CWTG. You are better off on this site due to greater traffic. There is very little traffic on the CWTG site. The person who helped get the site going is locked out and told me he has given on contacting the administrator. I think the administrator is working in Alaska and probably has no internet access.

Ahhh, there's nothing like the smell of diesel fumes in the morning.

Hello friends ,
I need help activating my account at the CWTG , I've tried writing to the board admin.several times but nothing happened. Does anyone know the board administrator ? Can anyone get in touch with him for me & help me activating my existing account ?
You can see the reply I got ,I only have to be approved.
I really want to be a part of the gang.
I'll appreciate any kind of help.
Thank you ,
Moshe.
White is all right !!!

The 1932 643 semi is totally all White stock components and frame. Shop made bumper and rear frame beavertail, fifth wheel, trailer brakes and light equipped by the first owner E.L. Murphy heavy haul. My dad worked it as Murphy left it with just some engine repairs from 1949 until parked in 1966. New left fender, cab back panels, and tank covers at restoration.

White designed its planetary back in 1919, this was the last version of the design.

If you take some pictures of your rear axle suspension shackles and frame crossmembers, that might yield clues.

I don't have any history of the truck , none what so ever. Everything is possible in 83 long years, they could have changed everything , axles , gearbox , engine, radiator shell, fenders , wheels. What can't be changed is the chassis's frame with 1936 vin no.& springs. I think that spring's size can tell the truck's model ,as long as you have any production list or brochures to compare to.
Bruce , that's a fantastic 1932 White truck .
l really love it. Does it run ? Are the gearbox & rear axle original ? I've never seen planetary rear hubs on such early trucks only from 1962 on mainly on Leyland trucks.
Thank you for your efforts ,

Moshe.

59D front axle is listed in 1954 White models WC22 through WC26. It would be about an 8 or 10K pound axle. Those truck models had several front axles offered and I don't know what each axles' application or specialty was. The 501B transmission appears in a 1963 Motors chart as a Clark 270. The 501 is not listed in the 1955 Motors. Could it be a much later transmission installed?

What's the history of this truck? Could it have been rebuilt a few times?

Enclosed is my 1932 semi, 33K lbs GVW, 130 HP, 4+2 trans, planetary hub rear.

Hello friends ,urica ! I've found the stamped front axle's no.it says :59DAL19299. The "1929" are the first 4 digits of the vin.no.
Can it lead us to the truck's model ?
On the right side we have the letters " AAX",as a part of the metal cast , upside down. What does it all mean ?
Can someone help me with the CWTG web site , please.
Bruce , can you please post some photos of your 1932 White 643 ?

Thanks , Moshe.

That's the stamped vin.no.
Are there any records that can tell the model by the vin.no.?
Thank you all ,
Moshe.

Hello all , thank you Bruce for your efforts.
No , there's no tag ,708 is my own wild guess I might be wrong as well. Is it possible that they built the 1936 with the fenders , radiator shell and grill of the W series ? That's what I have. It's confusing because on all the photos and brochures of 1936-7 model I've seen they come with different fenders , radiator shell , grill and headlamps ,like the Yellowstone buses.
Where exactly is the front axle's id.no.stamped ? There's no radius rods. Would springs measurements help solve the mystery?
