Problems Confronting a Truck Equipment Distributor Mounting Bodies or Equipment on a Chassis 720300

Since almost every new truck is tailor-made, built to the specification of the customer and the commodity it will transport, much cooperation is needed between the chassis manufacturer and the intermediate and final stage manufacturers in completing a truck to optimum standards.
This paper makes recommendations for the chassis frame, covering such areas as frame mounting surfaces, chassis frame length, frame strength at front end, and miscellaneous frame considerations. Other problem areas discussed in detail include: cross member interference with PTOs, exhaust systems, clearances for controls, alternators and electrical systems, wiring recommendations, and clearances and locations of other equipment.
