    1954 1955 1956 Big Dodge 10 Wheel Trucks

    Oh no, this is a beast of an M35 with a diesel engine. I know what you are talking about now. I didn't realize they are so rare. We had a couple (of what I believe were mid 50's) in the Philippines in the late 80's.

    Hey Charlie, do you mean a "deuce and a half"?

    I don't know if you have seen this series. I love these old videos.

    Ahhh yes. That "engineering" we all love so much. BTW, I love a good VW and have enjoyed your pics of those as well.

    1953 Dodge - What have I got into

    Hey Pete, you may already know this: from your picture your anchor bolts need to be adjusted. Drum brakes get a lot of bad press, but adjusted correctly I don't mind them. I also don't drive on the highway. Thanks for the thread, I have been enjoying watching your truck come together. Another old Dodge coming back to life. JD

    Engine problem

    You certainly could be right, but he is saying he performed a tune up because of the problem.

    Engine problem

    Fuel delivery makes a lot of sense, but it seems you have checked everything. I had an old Jeep truck with a similar problem and it was a pinched fuel line. How are your temperature and oil pressure gauges when the jerking is happening?

    Engine problem

    Did you check the springs on the mechanical advance while you were in the distributor? It's a stretch, but something to think about. Does it run fine at 40 until it gets warm?

    King Pin replacement issues

    You can't change out the spindle from 1 ton to 1/2 ton, but you can change the axle. Then you get into a mismatch problem with the rear end bolt pattern etc. In my case, I don't want to give up the original axle.

    King Pin replacement issues

    If you wouldn't mind, let me know how the conversion turns out. I have been thinking about doing it, but am concerned with the spindle reduction. Also, I really don't mind drum brakes, it adds spice to life. But if the final product is good I may convert. JD
  13. https://www.robertsmotorparts.com/brake-parts-1 and they are pretty helpful on the phone. VPW as well.
  14. Let me clarify: the mounting holes are in the fender and running board, but the piece to join them together is missing. I don't believe this piece is needed for stability, but to keep dirt from collecting on the front of the running board. I drive on the street and have had no issues with keeping this area clean. I think making this missing piece would be very simple, I just don't need it.
  15. Hey JPP, my running boards are not secured in the front to the fender and are completely stable. The bracket holes to attach them are the same on both sides. I hope that helps a little.
