Anyone have a source for the clips on Huck brakes for a 6400 2 ton? I bought clips from classic parts, but they are for trucks up to 3/4 ton.

oldieoldie,

This info may be of help.

Attached is a screenshot from a GMwiki parts search. The 6400 is identified as "Utility" in the part model application list.

List shows 35-57 Utility - front and rear brake shoe locking clips (1-3/16" OD) GM# 359380

Chevs of the 40's lists a 1-3/16" Huck brake shoe retaining clip set (2 per set) here: https://www.chevsofthe40s.com/detail/6301/Chevrolet_Brake_Pin_Lock_Brake_Pin_1316_OD.html

Description does not say that it includes 6400 2-ton vehicles, but size matches whats listed in the Master Parts book. At less than $10 per set (no idea what shipping is) maybe worth ordering to check out.

Let us know what you figure out. wave

Thanks for the info. I looked at that and it seems right. Only problem is they want $27 for shipping. You could put them in an envelope and send them. I'll have to think about other options and save that for the desperate choice.

Food for thought...

Per the Master Parts listing, these where used on a wide selection of trucks from '37-57 (depended on model). Maybe another 'Bolter may have something saved/stashed or accessible from a parts truck?

Maybe put an ad up in the "Swap Meet - Truck Parts Wanted" forum?

If I find any other possible sources, will pass on.

Good luck! wave

EDIT: Here is another source I found:
https://www.classicparts.com/1934-55-Huck-Brake-Anchor-Pin-Lock-Clip-1-3_16/productinfo/71%2D515/
There site states a minimum flat shipping rate of $9.95 based on orders $0-24.99. Your costs depend on how many you need (these are a bit more than the other source noted).

Call them and ask if they can ship for less than $27. I bought a freeze plug that I couldn't find elsewhere from them and they shipped it to me in a padded envelope for 5 bucks.

If you're smart enough to take it apart, you darn well better be smart enough to put it back together.

I found the parts I needed yesterday from Mongo at the meeting. Anyone who didn't go missed a really good time. Especially thanks to Don and Vickie for putting it all together and Mongo for his hospitality. I am really glad I made the effort to go.

We then had a great visit at Mongo's . I was glad to explain some on how to use propane equipment Steve happen to have in his arsenal of parts. Also others demonstrated interesting stuff to Bolters. Big fun at Mongo's !!!
