    This is a very poor picture of a Euclid ex Haul truck, that was converted into a Prime mover ?? Low bed truck at the Line Creek mine near Sparwood BC. My friend Ron was one of the guys that worked on this project and is (some day) going to send me pictures.

    I was thinking that it sure looked like a 769C or maybe a 773B!

    I'm thinking the sound suppression system was more about the cover over the radiator. I could be wrong though!

    The twin air cleaner assemblies were standard equipment on the Terex R50 on our side of the Pond.
    The fan was apparently one of the loudest components, so the weird shape cowiling was installed in front of the radiator. IIRC it also had a type of sponge material on the inner side to dampen noise from cowling vibration.

    Could have been labeled as to the quarries I worked in as to the Eucs, swap mufflers for straight pipes and scar up both sides, eliminate any straight sheet metal and VIOLA the fleets.
