3 months ago I had the good fortune to buy a '64 Chevy Suburban K10. Everything works. Good paint, 350 with holly 4 barrel. This truck is very solid. Some rust on the floor,engine compartment and frame. Bumpers and grille need paint, but other than that the truck doesn't need any work. Even the tires and wheels are good. I'll post some photos when I get the bumpers and grille painted. I have a couple of questions. 1. There is a small black knob to the left of and just below instrument panel, has "C" on it. What is it for? 2. I need a source where I can find new locking hubs. PS. This truck is NOT FOR SALE!

'64 - For the 6 lug, 1/2 Dana 44 closed knuckle hubs check out Mile Marker.

As for the "C" knob... is it mechanical or electrical?

What front axle and transfer case is in the Burb?
Should be a Dana 44 - 5F and a Rockwell T-221 if it's stock.

64K10- What I know about vehicles wouldn't fill a sheet from a sticky pad. The "C" knob is mechnical. Does cowl mean anything? Also, I have no idea what
the front differential is or the transfer case, but I think it's original. At present, I don't have a lot of time to spend on the truck, as I am working about 70 hours a week, with Sunday my only day off. Right now the Burb sits in the garage. My daily driver is a '72 Landcruiser.

The "C" knob used to be for a choke that was operated manually. Should be next to the headlight switch. There is a good chance it is no longer hooked up since that truck now has a 350 in it.

Sounds like the knob/cable may have been replaced.
No "C" on the '64 knob, not sure about the '60 - '63 ones. Knobs L to R - Headlights, Wiper, Choke (Steering Wheel) Ign switch, Lighter

As a side note, from the paperwork I found in my truck, looks like it lived in Cody, then went to DuBois, then out here to Kalifornia in the late '60s. Last time I was in Buffalo was in 2000 on my way to Sturgis.

The "C" knob. From steering column going left. Choke, wiper then light switch. From the light switch, go left 3 and one half inches, then down two inches. There is the location of the "C" knob. It's on the dash, but not on the instrument panel. And from all apperances, it is original equipmemt. Also, I checked with Mile Marker, they do not list a locking hub for a '64 Burb. LMC has a hub listed that works for a 60-66 K10, but when I phoned them, they could not tell me if it would work on a Burb. They suggested I ask a local mechanic. Right! A mechanic in Buffalo, Wyoming is going to know if a hub that works on a '64 pickup will work on a '64 Burb. What with so many '64 pickups and Burbs running around Buffalo, Wyoming. I think not. I have e-mailed everyone at Stovebolt with a photo of a Burb and had no response. Someone out there has to know where I can find hubs.

You might try Warn for hubs, they did make them for 4x4s back then, should still be availible as the diff should be a Spicer 44.

I have to correct myself, Warn does not list anything before '69 for 1/2 ton. Mile marker does list one, the Selectro Classic part # 11001-01, and Summit lists a Milemarker part # MMK-103 as fitting as well for '60-'68. They list for $66.39 for a pair.

LONGBOX55, Bill,
Mile Marker lists the 11001-01 for '60-68 pickups. How can I determine if these hubs will work on my Burb?

'64,

First you need to identify that you have the original Dana 44 axle. Look at the front diff cover and to the lower right on the housing you will find some casting numbers "44 - 5F". This is for the 1/2T - 6 lug, closed knuckle axle. This casting number is also on the driveshaft side of the housing. You'll probably have to clean the diff housing with a wire brush to read the numbers.

If your truck has 8 lugs and is really a K10 (and not a K20) someone has put 3/4T axles under it.

Is your transfercase in the center of the truck or attached to the tranny? Stock tranny is the SM420, with reverse to the left and down.

Post some pics of the truck, axle, and the "c" knob...
