Tim, I like reading the phone book. I always look for my last name whenever i visit a new town. I might find a long lost relative.

The old car manual project is a great read. I have found lots of info that wasn't listed in the '38 Chevy books.

Also -- The Salesman's Truck Data Book is an excellent resource. I've used mine to answer a lot of questions over the years.

OP -- You say you have a '49 3100 with a "4 on the floor?" That's interesting. The SM-420 was available as an option in the half tons but we don't see them often (unless modified later in life). Question for the experts: If the SM-420 was optioned originally, then it would have an enclosed "torque tube" rather than an open driveshaft, yes?

Note that the STDB that John links to is a reprint of the original 1949 STDB.
Originals for each year sometimes show up on eBay (and the prices rise every year).

JC's note is a little misleading: "1949 Salesmen's Pickup Truck Data Book Same for 1947-1953 Chevrolet and GMC Pickup Truck"

It is not just a book about Pickup Trucks (it has information on all truck models)..
It does not cover differences over the 47-53 years, but there were very many similarities over those years.
It is not a GMC STDB, but there are many similarities, except for frame, wheels/tires, front body parts, and drive train).

"Question for the experts: If the SM-420 was optioned originally, then it would have an enclosed "torque tube" rather than an open driveshaft, yes?"

I am not an expert, but, "yes" if the SM420 was installed in a torque-tube (closed/enclosed driveshaft) truck model, the torque-tube was used with the SM420 and the "3-speed" rear end/etc.
