I have cut many of them back when I had a shop. It does not cause any safety problem.


They say money can't buy happiness. It can buy old Chevy trucks though. Same thing.

I found that Raybestos WC 13388 and WC 13387 fit the backing plate with very little compression of the w/c boots. UP 13388 and UP 13387 from Napa are identical. Both are made in China. I took them all apart, and they appear to be well made. We’ll see how they work,

1. You have posted the same number for each brand. They are all the same. They are the correct number for rear TF 1/2T.
2. The tabs that stick out are safety stops to keep the piston from coming out. The boot will nest around the stop.
3. The front number is 14493 and 14494.
4. Front is 1 1/8" bore, rear is 1" bore.

WC= Wheel Cylinder
UP= Ultra Premium
Prefix does not matter

Good find Larry!
Nothing like finally finding the correct parts.

Very nice. The "Tri Fives" are the best of the TF and the 57 is the best of the Tri Fives. Very valuable truck. What is the GVW on the data plate attached to the cab?

No real change in value to a factory 4X4. I've had lots of TF's including 4X4. A few months ago I sold 6 "Napco" 1/2T wheels.

We’re they the 17.5” wheels? I’m committed to the 16” I had made, but had considered the 17.5s. Which NAPCO did you have? I’ve had a 58 GMC Carryall that was a factory NAPCO, and a 59 Chevy NAPCO pickup. This 57 I’ve had for 36 years so it’s a keeper

Yes 17.5 x 5.25 Kelsey Hayes, 6 lug with clips. I had a 57 GMC Napco Carryall and a 56 GMC Carryall which I did a 4x4 swap from a 80's suburban. Then several panels and suburbans. Had a original 1957 Dairy Queen Panel also.
I just finished a 1960 GMC short wideside big window factory 4X4 with a 305 V6. All original except power steering, steel bed and wind up spare.
Regarding TF: I only did panels and suburbans. Then: Many other makes and models. All pre 73. In the 4X4 catagory: Land Rover, Nissan Patrol, Scout, Land Cruiser, Blazer, Willys panel...Next is a 57 Willys Truck.
I don't "restore" most, just refurbish and "conserve".
