I have some spec info to send you, but I'll have to dig it out of my archives and it'll be a couple of days before I can get to it.

Here's what I have on the Diamond T, though:
Starting in 1941, a pair of 1/2-ton Diamond T's were marketed: Model 91 and Model 117. Both utilized a 3-5/16 x 3-7/8 in. six. Apparently the model numbers designated wheelbase length, the smaller trucks weighing 3,150 lbs and the larger ones 3,400 lbs. There were also a 1/2-ton 201L/201CL version of the Model 201 1-ton conventional, plus 1-ton versions of Diamond Ts 300 and 400 series 1-1/2 tons. These were built until after the end of WWII.

As I said, I'll get back to you in a few days with some more info on your truck. In the meantime could you send along the model number for your truck?

Hi
Thank you for getting back to me on this, here is my truck info

I bought this truck at my cousin's estate sale. In 1942, my dad and another cousin took a train from Miiton, Pa to Chicago to pick up this pickup and also three other trucks (chassis only) and they drove them back, the three other trucks were stacked piggy back.  My grandfather had a stone quarry, Narehood Bros. He also had a Diamond T Dealership. The pickup stayed in the quarry until 1957 when my grandfather sold it.  Then the truck went across the road and my uncle used it, then it went to his son (my cousin) and sat in his garage from 1970 until this year. I bought it four weeks ago.  It has 27,000 miles and has been in our family since new. Any info that you may have would be great. I did order a Hercules engine manual this morning for the truck. I would like to have the wiring diagrams for the pickup and any other infomation that you may be able to find on the truck
Thank you

My source for info on your truck is a 1942 Motor Truck Repair manual. My guess is that the Hercules manual you sent for would have better info than i have.

In the Motor book, it shows the 6 cylinder Hercules engine with the designation of QXA, QXB, QXC, and QXD. There is no mention of the CB or the LD3 designations that you list. There are similarities between these engines, but there are enough differences that you'd have to know exactly which engine you have. Again, the Hercules manual may be a better source.
