I’m also new to Stovebolt, and look forward to learning a lot more about the care and maintenance of my newly acquired’52 Chev Panel. In particular, I will be scouring the Tech Tips for info on changing out the torque tube drive to S 10 transmission and rear end. I feel a lot more confident moving forward with the support that this forum offers!

Welcome to Stovebolt. you will find lots of help in the garage forums.

....restored a 52 half ton panel myself. Then after working on it for 6 years and driving it for 7 years I sold it 3 months ago!! Sure do miss it!!!

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

Welcome Geoff, I don't get on here much anymore but I had a '53 panel for a number of years. Last month I spent some time in Vancouver, met up with Rusty who has a 52 panel. Welcome to the site.

welcome to the site! These old trucks are sure fun to work on and drive! I get a smile every time I get in mine, even if it is just to move it around the yard!
