I just put my doors back on my '49 at the paint shop for final fitment. I already did this months ago, but had to fight them tooth and nail today. We had a bad bow at the railing edge in one door, but my body man beat it into shape with a big rubber

The vibration could also be from a worn transmission output shaft bushing.

I realize that yours is a '37, but the '48-'51 Truck Shop Manual says to torque to 33 ft lbs, then back off 1/6 of a turn until the cotter pin will go through one of the two holes in the spindle. I don't have any idea if that would be what is called

Welcome to the Bolt! And congratulations on the Big Bolt. As I've always said, anyone can have a pickup!! Lots of good info over in the Big Bolt forum. Will look forward to seeing pictures at some point.

Thanks, Carl. As a retired journeyman Ironworker, welding instructor, shop fitter/welder and fabricator myself, I think I can handle it. Plus, I'm also sure the company that builds these wouldn't sell anything to bolters that didn't work in the first

You will also need the correct disc/drum proportioning valve and residual pressure valve.

it's illegal in BC [or most anywhere in N America] to use registrations that don't originally belong to a vehicle .... and dealing in such is discouraged here at the 'Bolt .... unless of course you're just "collecting paper"

George, I contacted Bruce but he did not have the part. Thanks for the contact info, anyway. Harold, I will take your advice and try the local NAPA. I would be interested in even a used part, after all, the whole truck is used, so that would be OK.

"They have offered me that engine instead of my rebuilding my 1954 235." Sounds fishy to me. How well do you know the owner of the shop?

I guess that this was a day late and a dollar short as the saying goes. I would have loved to have made the drive up to meet some folks. Maybe next time... I'm still getting my feet wet with this truck so I'll be around a while yet. :)
