These are the optional tubeless replacements if you choose not to cut the centers out of an old RH5 http://s226.photobucket.com/user/46cabover/media/133B33C6-3CC6-42A8-ADCA-7C499111E0B1_1%201.jpg.html http://s226.photobucket.com/user/46cabover/media/

Martin: The kits are some mounting plates. Specifically for 60-66. They recommend a 68-76 box probably because they are SAE, not metric and the rag will work. They recommend a 67-72 Pitman arm. Pumps from the same era 68-76, and maybe others, would

I was driving my 59 Apache home from work tonight and noticed that my steering wheel felt like it had a lot less resistance than normal, almost sloppy. I thought maybe the lash adjustment had backed out somehow. I checked it when I got home and the

$325 each to cut the centers out of the RH5 and weld them into a 22.5" rim. (tubeless)

Yea these are supposed to be correct for my old ford. Sales man took a picture and emailed me. But they look more like the bolt pattern for my old Studebaker 2r16

I've followed the manual as stated for my GMC 1 ton and that worked great. Also as mentioned you may need to adjust a little more if they drag. Good to check the drums for heat after a drive (not much stopping) and adjust any that are warm.

Can one use vacuum brake bleeding technique to bleed brakes on '58 Viking two ton grain truck.? I'm getting conflicting info on what order to do wheels. Also there is a bleed valve a few inches from hydrovac unit. Should I vacuum bleed there first.

Factory Rebuilt Carburetor I'll make a pretty large wager you have an incorrect carb for the 235 engine. If it happens to be calibrated for a 216 instead of a 235, it will run very rich, and if the power valve happens to be stuck in the open positi

looking at the chamfer on the bolt holes, they almost look like stud piloted wheels.

I'll swag a couple things together are causing your problems. 1) blown head gasket. A compression and/or leak down test will verify the innards. 2) Carb float not adjusted right. I know you said factory rebuilt carb but that doesn't always translate

It would be interesting to see the engine serial number - in that year, the ID contained date information and information designating the vehicle it which that engine was first installed. There was no Chevrolet truck option for the high-pressure 23
