Hello Ed,

I understand from your previous post that you have several torque tube sections... Can you part with one? I am planning to keep the original engine, drivetrain and bolt pattern on the truck...

That is an odd driveline. While not impossible, it would be very difficult to source a "bolt-in" torque tube rear axle that matches the wheelbase of your project truck. I hope you're parts hunting skills are exceptional! It may be much easier to source an open driveshaft style rear axle and transmission as it would allow a much greater latitude in wheelbase options. I believe that the more readily available 1941-46 deco 1 1/2 ton trucks should be suitable parts donors for your model.

I'm not sure what you mean by odd driveline... Are the 158-1/2" trucks that rare? I'm just after the front section of the torque tube... Yes, ideally I would swap to open drive, the problem is finding the parts either as a whole or or individually... It would make more sense just to swap axles and the rear transmission cover and be done with it, provided the location of the center bearing is the same as the closed driveline...
