Review: 28 Chevy dump truck with firewall cut out to allow room for a 216 six cylinder. Pulled six and replaced with a 153 Mercury Marine 4 cylinder (same as an early Chevy II engine). Looks right. Machined up a one off adapter to mate the Mercury Marine engine to the original transmission. The torque tube and driveshaft had been shortened to accommodate the longer six so lengthened tube and made a new 4.5" longer drive shaft out of round bar stock. Hole in firewall has been filled with 16g cold rolled flat sheet that has lip for floor board and rolled ribs to match ones in the factory fire wall (not pictured). Milled the water jacket off the marine exhaust manifold and now building a block hugger type exhaust since ChevyII exhaust manifolds seem to be extinct. Last hurdle is to find another 28 1.5T and make a copy of the front brake rods/levers/pivots since all this is missing. The rear mechanical brake system is all been rebuilt and work good.

Nice project. Is the dump bed manually operated, and is there a manufacture data plate on the bed?

Bed is power operated but both PTO shaft and shift rod were shortened when six cylinder engine was installed and will have to be extended to original length. I'm too old to crawl around under projects but if my 12,000# Rotary lift will handle it I will learn a lot more about the workings of the bed cylinder and lines. I think it will. It will have to be running first because I sure can't push it up the ramps on the lift. Kind of curious about this myself. Didn't think of checking the box for a builders tag but I will.

Evan,

Perhaps the hoist is an old Garwood. Hydraulic rams were in their infancy back then, would be interesting to see.

I love it coilover. My friend has a '29, but dang it, its a Ferd. (First dump of Randolph Trucking Co. which now as hundreds of them.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

Coilover, that is a neat project you got going on there. Cant wait to see it running and driving.
Paul, thanks for sharing that Gar Wood article. Very interesting read.

Got off my hiney and took a picture of the tag on the dump bed and followed up with a little sleuthing. Seems a guy named Wood made a dump bed to unload coal easier. As I take it this evolved into the Gar Wood Co.
