Unfortunately, my '51 B3B was missing the VIN plate on the A pillar of the driver door so I need to order a reproduction tag. I want to make sure the correct data gets embossed onto the tag. Other than the serial number, can someone verify that these numbers are correct for the B3B? Model: B-3-B-108 Gross Vehicle Weight: 4850 lbs Certified Net Horse Power: 86 @ 3600 RPM Certified Gross Horse Power: 97 @ 3600 RPM Here's another interesting historical fact I've noticed from VIN plate examples I've seen online; it looks like the B1B and B2B plates leave out Gross Horse Power and only include Net HP. But the later B3B and B4B model VIN plates included both ratings. This is only "important" to someone in my situation who needs to replace the correct style of VIN tag.
After looking for a while, I've found a horn ring/button that's mostly flat and has a good shine. when preparing to install, I discovered that I'll need one or two additional parts that I haven't seen offered. I'm missing the lower plate (the one that mounts to the wheel and has the fingers to hold the ring in place). according to the parts manual on the DPETCA site, it's part number 657953. 8-33-65 (lower one) on the illustration. According to the list, it doesn't appear that a 52 1/2 ton would use the lower spring, but I can't figure out why not. If needed, the spring would be part number B1390694 or 657954. 8-33-30 on the illustration. does anyone know a source for these parts and/or know if the spring is needed for a 52 1/2 ton B3? Thanks so much for your help Bob
