    I just purchased a 1921 Model X-5 5 ton truck. I am looking for a starter, Generator, and any extra engine parts you may have for sale. This truck has set for the last 70 years and will require a longer list of needed parts as time goes by to complete. I will concider any pile of truck parts you have. Thanks, Karl Krouch Sr.

    Since most of us Pierce owners have never seen a Pierce truck… Thanks to all who have contacted me here and by e-mail about my new toy and give me words of encougagement. The photo I posted does not give you a good idea of just how big everything is on this truck.I now have an owners manual, and would like to share a few specs. with you from this booklet.

    Cooling system: 14 gallons

    Gas tank (under the seat): 25 gallons

    Rear axle: 7 quarts

    engine oil; 17 pints

    Trans.: 1 gallon

    Warranty: 90 days! and does not cover: Tires, rims, ignition, horn, starter, generators, batteries, and speedometers

    A 1927 scale book came with the truck(with dump bed), now gone, empty weight 13,200 pounds! The average weight gross was 29,000 lbs. (just a few ton over the rated 5 ton at 16 mph shown on the frame data plate.

    More later. Karl

    This uses Distributor #5225, looking for 2 dist. caps (4cyl.) and point sets for the same. I can email photos or drawings of items.

    Update on 21 Pierce truck: I spent two hours at the AACA Library on Friday trying to make sure I own a 1921 truck. The Pierce collection contained the same owners manual, same date, and page count as I have except for a red cover, not green like mine. I took the vin. number to see if I could confirm the 1921 date shown on my title. Well… the years still 1921, however the parts book showed it as a R10 5 ton truck not a X-5 5 ton. I re-checked my delco book and all parts on my want list remain the same as before. I also will need a headgasket if anyone has an extra for sale. Fitzgerald no. 298 or 298HD. Pierce #T86800. I compaired page after page of the parts book and see no changes from the X-5 to R10 except for the engine, after engine number 800 the X-5 and all R10s have a different headgasket making me wonder what changes were made to the cooling system or piston dispacement? More later. Karl
