Does any one have a good photo of the side mount spare tire carrier?
I need to get one for a 1952 3800 long bed.
Just the bracket, no tire,so I can build one if necessary.
Thanks,
Wally

It might not have 100% applicability to your model, but there is a tech tip for a TF mount that might be of help. It has photos (less tire) and dimensions.

It's too bad you're not closer. I have one someone made up. It's pretty sturdy, and it's heavy, so it would cost more than it's worth to ship.

near as i can tell it was made from the pieces that use to make up the under bed spare tire carrier.

i've got more shots of this carrier if you are interested.

There's a pretty good picture here in the link below - very similar to the mounts used on the AD's. It's not visible in the picture, but there's a bar that is mounted horizontally on the backside of the bedsides - held on with the lower bolts in the vertical bars. Somewhere here I think there's a good technical drawing of the sidemount setup.

hi there this may be a little off topic but I just bought an original GM spare tire lock hub and bracket for my 54 gmc, has anyone seen one of these before? it has a gm key to unlock and works on my stock bracket. it is made of cast iron. I could post pictures if anyone wanted.

Rayce.

Rayce,

Would you please post pictures to the lock (on and off the bracket)?

Here's a scan of the diagram for the 1954 side mount spare carrier. The 1953 version had a slightly different shape due to the different shape of the top edge of the bed side.

Also, slightly different bracket "cages" might have been made for different sizes of tires.

If you have to stomp on your starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.

Thanks for all the replies.
I'm still looking for the right application, It's a 1951 1 Ton, 9 ft, bed, and a 17" tire.
There is no fender indent as there is plenty of length in that area of the bed.
I'd like to put them on both sides.
