Thank you so much for the awesome amount of information on your site. I have recently (last saturday) purchase the following: 1952 Canadian GMC 9430 Pickup Long box (with a Robin hydraulic dump) Vehicle serial number 2943415032 6 cylinder in-line possibly 216 cubic inch (3.5L) Engine code XC600988 eng block casting numberGM 3835814 (216 CID) Cyl head casting number 3835499 (made for 235 CID) Carburetor Rochester 1 barrel no numbers so far
Transmission casting number GM 591907 Differential Casting number 8699535
Body# 1286 Trim # 394 Paint # 236 Battery 6 volt Generator Wilson Elec Winnipeg #1100018 6V A.E.
4 Spd standard transmission Robin 2-ram hydraulic dump box (factory installed)
tires 7.50-17 6 ply original (LT 265/75R16 presently on the truck)
More information than you probably wanted, my plan is to get is safetied and plated then use it as is. I will be using to haul my blacksmithing stuff to the local museum when I do my metal working demonstrations there. I will also use it for scouting and generally as a truck. If I go in parades, I loaded up a bunch scouts, cubs and beavers in the box, haul a parade float behind. Kind of like the "follow me boys" movie.
I am looking for the safety specifications for brake lining thickness, does anyone know what they are? I am also looking for the rear emergency brake cables, they would be the Chev 3800 equivalent, I have not been able to find any so far.

Those are beautiful photos of a great truck. You have the motor that was made from 1950 to 52. I have the same one in my 1951 1 Ton. There are some places that can make new parking brake cables if you have the hardware. You might want to give Bill at Bills Truck a call.
