Hi, King. I'm no expert on these critters having only operated a couple of them. One had a 4-71 GM and the other a 6 cyl. Cummins. Both were 6 WD, 6 wheel steer with the tandem drive mounted on a turntable arrangement that was controlled by huydraulic rams to steer the back end. They are not my favourite graders of all time, but they sure can push for their size. They are also a fairly robust machine. Your serial number means nothing to me as I don't have any books of model designations, years of manufacture, etc.. Austin-Western made graders in 4x2, 4x4, 6x4 and 6x6 configurations over quite a few years but I have not seen any new ones DownUnder in Australia for many years now. The 4x4 and 6x6 version were fairly popular with forestry organisations for a while for their ability to get into and out of awkward areas. Hope this helps. You have a wonderful day. Best wishes. Deas Plant.
