Steve,

The adapters I'm talking about are nothing like what you have on your C10.

As you may or may not know Dayton Wheels are just open center wheels that are designed to clamp onto Cast Spoke Hubs. These adapters are cast iron and the center has your 6-lug Budd bolt pattern with clamps on the outer part of the disc to bolt/clamp the Dayton Wheel.

These adapters were used by fleet owners that ran Dayton wheels on the entire fleet...if they had gotten a Budd wheeled truck for some reason they would add the adapters to it making that truck now a Dayton wheel truck to "standardized" the fleet.

I'll try to take a picture of what I'm talking about if Spanky doesn't beat me to it...

Mike B smile

Finished the F250, brought it to the DMV and it passed without any issues, so now we can turn our attention back on the Viking!
Started to disassemble the front. for us it's a different model than we're used to, so It took us a good 3 ours to get the fenders and front of, but luckily we only encountered small rust problems (a.k.a. holes) at the front cab mounts.
Took out the steering column because we couldn't turn the wheels and indeed the steering gear was completely stuck. When we took it apart, we noticed that most of the grease had left and water replaced it. the bearings are all gone, but also the bearing saddles (I hope that's the right terminology) are all beyond repair.

Thinking it would be hopeless I just googled C60 Steering box and whaddaya know! I found one. it looks exactly the same, it only states 1/2 ton to 1 ton, but what difference the load capacity makes.

Edit..better read twice because I now see it's a send and rebuild service frown

1958 did not come with an alternator. The item pictured is a Generator. In 1958 it would have been 12 volt from the factory. Looks like you are having way too much fun. 🛠

Here's a couple pictures of my front and rear Budd to Dayton adapters. These are slated for a future project and when used will be fitted with 22.5" Dayton's.

Hey Mike, do you have Dutch ancestors? because I believe your last name is derived from Bottelier, which is a well known name here in the Netherlands.
(the name was given to the guy who was responsible for supplies on the old tall ships)

So anyway I was going over the vin plate again, zooming in on the picture and I see it says: General Motors Continental Antwerp
Google tells me that from the 20's there have been a couple of manufactering plants in Belgium for CKD's Chevy, GMC, Bedford and Vauxhall.

haven't been doing much, went on a holiday to the Isle of Man for the TT races and somehow every weekend there seems to be a birthday party smile
Hopefully we'll get something done this weekend.

Looks to me that CA = Continental Antwerp

Could the "B" be the export code for "Belgium" ???

I'm not aware of any Dutch ancestry (we've been in the US since the early 1600's).
