less tire wear, sharper turns, more traction when empty. still common to have one or two air lift axles on trucks and trailers here.
We see lift axles on semis but that setup is a new one for me.

a 392 was a nice motor. if you ever set the timing it times on #8

I haven't looked it up - which is #8?  Rear most on the passenger side I assume...
its marked on the intake manifold

Back in the day, before regulation, loggers would take a one and a half ton ford or chevy and put an extra rear dead axel under it, any axel, to haul more weight. People had common sense and stayed out of the way of trucks back then. If the driver got on the horn that meant he couldn't stop. On this IH they could chain up the axel on the way home .
