How to repair Pitting in front window frame Dongray Mon Nov 30 2020 06:54 AM
I have some widow frame rot on both lower corners and am considering buying a stretcher/ shrinker and bender and trying it myself or paying someone to do it. Cost for tools is probably 250, experience 0 vs Cost to have a fabricator do it??? Figure could sell the tools when done to recoup some money.
Thoughts?

Thanks,
Eric

Re: Trans ratio in first matter? and what is "wide" ratio muncie really? 1Ton_tommy Mon Nov 30 2020 06:12 AM
You have to discriminate between truck and car transmissions. Yours with the 7.06 first is a totally different animal than the close-ratio 2.20 low, four-speeds they put in corvettes. What you want is a Muncie SM420 or possibly an SM465 to match a 68 and later 292 bell housing. These are basically three speeds with a compound low for crawling around the yard without slipping the clutch. For heavy-duty work the ratios split evenly when used with a 2-speed axle or 3-speed brownie giving you reasonable RPM drops between gears; like maybe 400 with a brownie and 700 with a two-speed axle instead of 1500 RPM with a straight 4-speed.

Re: Model A's did well in the snow. How about our BIG trucks? 1Ton_tommy Mon Nov 30 2020 05:57 AM
One for each wheel is much easier to handle.They make two and three rail chains for duals. Three rails give good traction but the downside is that like for a 11.00 X 24.5 set of duals they're really heavy. Way over 50 lbs., though I never weighed them. After you have chained up 6 axles you know you've done some work. Visit a local trucking company and talk to the mechanics about where they get chains repaired. I have cut and spliced many over the years to get what I wanted.

Re: 1954 original 15 inch wheels klhansen Mon Nov 30 2020 04:56 AM
15" 8 lug (3/4 ton) wheels were 5-1/2" wide. I don't know the width of 15" 6 lug wheels.
16" 6 lug (1/2 ton) wheels were 4-1/2" wide in the later AD years.

Also, try that link that didn't work for you again. It takes a minute or two to load but it eventually comes up on my computer. It's just unusually slow.

Re: 64 C10 3 on the tree column shift arm adjustment ESum Mon Nov 30 2020 02:35 AM
If proper adjustment cannot be made by adjusting the adjuster ring (lower bearing retainer) you may have to disassemble it to find the problem. Above the shift levers there is a spring and spacer, if I recall correctly the spacer is held in the proper position by tangs in the mast jacket. If that spacer is not in place it might make it impossible to adjust.

Most tire manufacturers show rev per mile of each tire on there website, makes it easy to do the math,.

Re: 1963 1 ton C30 split rims BC59 Mon Nov 30 2020 02:03 AM
What diameter are they?

7:00-18 was popular back then, been hard to find tires for years. Rims should be safe if not rusted & done by someone who knows what to do.
These shouldn't the Firestone rh 5 window makers.
Post a picture of the wheel.

Re: Battery beneath floor J Lucas Mon Nov 30 2020 01:51 AM
Hello Waveski,

It's your truck, you can mount that battery wherever you like. But, it's almost always easier to keep it as it was originally designed, as the parts can be readily purchased and just bolted on. That said, if you have the know how, the tools and you'd rather have it under the hood, I say go for it.

Welcome to the Stovebolt.

John
