  1. Thanks for the ideas guys. Going to check out speedway steering box.
  2. I so tired of my bad luck. Just got done replacing rear bearings, seals , brakes on rear axle which turned out to be a 47 Plymouth. This is a 1936 Dodge pickup. Backed it out of garage went to turn and the steering wheel twisted off. It seems that previous owner had done some sloppy welding on steering shaft for some reason. There was no threaded shaft on the end it look like they welded a hollow threaded section onto original steering shaft as there was a bolt holding steering wheel on not a nut. It broke off below the steering column which means I have to pull steering box to see what is up. Is there an aftermarket steering column that will adapt to the Dodge's steering box. It steered fine before this and didnt have any issues this past summer. Glad it happened in driveway and not on road. Was thinking of buying one of the universal steering columns and welding or adapting it to the current steering tube on pickup. Any ideas?
  3. I am in the process of gathering the tools I need to replace the axle seals and pinion seal on my 1936 Dodge pickup.Got a hub puller, Need to buy some larger sockets- I need to know socket size for pinion nut. Another member identified a picture of my trucks pumpkin as a 1946 to 1948 Plymouth not original to truck. I have finally been able to get truck up on stands and was able to see the following numbers on the rear end 11415 44-28 below that is the number 262. Anyone know what year this is? Thanks.

    Some other pictures.
  9. Pulled rear hubs on 36 Dodge 1/2 ton pickup. I had previously acquired brake shoes. The ones on the truck do not look the same. Im sure the new ones are correct for year parts. The ones on car use plunger rods at the wheel cylinder to shoes. The new shoes have have plunger manufactured on the shoe. There looks like a clearance issue between the shoe backing and wheel cylinder. Do I have different year rear end . Trying to download some pics.

    Pinion seal question

    Found parts book online, looks like that is correct parts number for pinion seal.(600230).Thanks for the info. SKF seal#17675 is a match. Found some online for $14.00.
  11. Going to replace the pinion seal on 36 pickup 1/2 ton. Looking online I see that DCM Classics offers a seal. In their picture they show a seal that has a number stamped on it. Number 50354. When I google that number online I come up with a rubber seal for tractor applications at about 1/3 the cost. It shows measurementsat 45x68x12 mm. Does anyone know the size of current seal. Have not pulled mine yet-temp outside is 20 and garage is not much warmer!
  12. The steering wheel on my 36 pickup is shot. It has major cracks and pieces missing from the base part. I'm afraid its going to split apart on me while driving. Is there any adapter that would allow use of modern type wheel until the bank account is full enough to buy a original restored replacement.
  13. thanks everyone for the info.
