I have been using your site for info on my 47 1 ton panel, and have found a lot of great information. Thanks to all who have posted! I have been building vintage cars and motorcycles since I was fourteen, and am a retired mechanic. I am working on purchasing a 46 Suburban from the estate of a deceased hoarder, that has been kept under a large shed for a long time. For the panel truck I am going to install a 62 401 Nailhead with the original ST400 trans, and a gear vendors overdrive. I picked up a 4.57 third member with the detroit locker, and with the overdrive knocks it back to a 3.57 ratio. If I am fortunate enough to purchase the Suburban, I will most likely upgrade the driveline on that as well, keeping it old school with vintage components. Not a billet or digital guy.
I had an original 38 Chevy coupe with the 216, and just didn't enjoy driving it that much, so I sold it at Hershey a few years ago. I currently have a 37 Chevy coupe that is getting a 57 392 Hemi,
after I replace the hacked up hot rodded frame. I also have a 55 Nomad with a 460 big block, a richmond gear 6 speed and a 4.11 9" rear that I narrowed from a 63 F100. Over the last 45 years
I have also collected a bunch of antique Harleys, that I continue to build from basket cases. Very busy... I look forward to reading all of this wonderful information that you people who are
knowledgeable about these great trucks continue to post!
Thanks again, Nomadbb

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
