    Me and the B-1-D

    I thought I read somewhere that the 'T' meant truck in the MN license plate back in those days. I have a plate like that for mine Mike

    48 1 ton leaking master cylinder

    Good point, I will do a closer look at the lines to see if there is more copper. This little line actually goes to the brake lock solenoid (which doesn't work) so I think this could be the only copper piece (I hope). Thanks for the comments!!! Mike

    48 1 ton leaking master cylinder

    Here's the problem, line coming out of the back/bottom of the master cylinder. The crack was facing straight down. Was not leaking over winter, but must have had a bit of water around the fitting? I remember that the road was wet and muddy the last day I drove it last fall. So maybe a small bit of water settled there and froze. Then the first time I drive it this year it let loose. While I have it all out I am going to put the new parts inside the MC, spring, cup, piston and all the other little stuff in there. Should be back to normal soon! Mike

    48 1 ton leaking master cylinder

    Good point, I'll have to see what it looks like when I get it out. Thanks
  7. Woke the truck up from storage, no puddles under the truck. Whet to get gas and beer, about 10 mile round trip. Parked in garage and see a puddle on the floor under the master cylinder, leaking from the rear boot where the plunger shaft goes in. Bad seal? I have the rebuild kit on hand. Does the cylinder need to be honed when I get it out? thanks Mike

    1 ton fender extension

    Built this to finish off the fender extension project. Used a section off of old running board from parts truck.

    1949 One Ton

    You only need the dually rims to make it a dually, no change to the rear end. the dually rims have offests and 'coined' lug holes that seat the rims together. Then they just bolt onto the hubs.
  11. I think you have to join the Facebook group to see the for sale listings, but there is a 9' box with the bolt on fender extensions listed for sale on this page. Here is the description: 9' box $1 Pine City, MN (55063) Anyone have any interest in a 9' box with bolt-on fender extenders for duals off a 49 dodge? No floor or tailgate, but has running boards. Was going to use it on my studebaker, but I found a different box now to use. Located in east central MN. Make an offer. The name is Jordan Waggoner. Thought I would post this as I just made my fender extensions last fall as they are super hard to find. The 9' box is hard to find too. Good luck if someone needs this!!! Mike

    1 ton fender extension

    So here is a pic of what we manufactured for the fender extension. We bought a two axle trailer fender at Fleet Farm as the starting point. It was 9" wide, the right and left ends of the fender had almost the perfect curvature to the original fender. We cut the flat middle section out of the store bought fender and welded them together to get the full fender. Also cut 3" out of the middle of the store bought fender to make the extension 6" wide. One edge of the store bought fender had a right angle edge and the other side had a curved edge. These worked perfectly to match up to the original fender (flat edge) and the box (curved edge). The pic shows the mock up, tacked piece. We have yet to finish weld and paint. Hopefully get that done this week. Also have 'donor' running boards to attempt to make the 'small transition pieces' mentioned above.
