1958 Apache 3100 Differential Carrier #1284756

To all my Stovebolt friends,

This might not be the best place to search for this, but it is a place to start. We are looking for a replacement carrier to take the place of the one that came out of my truck currently undergoing a frame-off restoration. We are trying not stray too far from original in this project. It seems that someone along the way in the life of this truck did a number on going into the differential and not rebuilding it like it should have been done. We found some pretty bad wear on the surfaces of the carrier.

To make a long and frustrating story short, I am looking for a replacement carrier. I need one that is of 1955 - 1962 timeframe. It MUST be designated with a 'T' for this time frame.

If you have one you are willing to part with or know where one is that meets this criteria please let me know and by ALL means send or include pictures in your reply.

Thank you,

John

Ed, Thanks for your inquiry. I sorry I was not clear. My truck is a 1958 Chevrolet Apache 3100 1/2 ton pickup with three speed on the column and a 235 six cylinder engine. The differential is the one that came in the truck. John

Hi John
If you are looking for the complete pumpkin then I have one. The half ton in 1955-1962 came with a 3.90 gear ratio as standard or a 4.11 ratio as an option.
Th complete drop out pumpkin assembly is a 3.90 gear ratio. It was just rebuilt by Anaheim Gear about 30 days ago with all new bearings including the pinion crush bearing.
They set the lash etc and are a very professional company.
The price is $1200.00 plus shipping (about $120.00) from California,
My contact number is 949 973-6224

Thanks Brian.

I passed on your information on to Michael Causey at Toxic Customs in Raleigh, NC. They are doing the restoration for me on our 1958 Apache 3100.

Any photographs you can post? We are looking for the carrier that will go in a '55 - 62 pickup and is designated with the letter 'T'.
