  1. Is there a trick to installing a replacement gas pedal on a B-3 truck. I have tried several times & do not want to ruin the new pedal. It just will not seat & stay seated on the pivot studs. I must be doing something wrong. It looks like it would just pop into place.

    Anyone out there had to replace their gas pedal before? Cheapest I can find for replacement is $49.95. Part #451964.

    Thanks, That has been bugging me. Took the pedal completely off & that didn't help. The rod going thru the hole in the firewall seems awful sloppy. I will clean & check all pivot points & look for something binding. Just noticed that the battery cable leading to the starter has been taped up. Could be the culprit. Will get someone to operate it while I investigate.

    Sprayed w/white lithium grease, did not appear to help. Does the dry lube work better?

    That sounds right. Mine has the 2 speed rear end & is JA as well. I'll check those part #'s out. Thanks. Sent wheel cylinders to White Post Restorations in Va. yesterday. Part #'s did not compute to anyone here in Jacksonville, N.C. Can't wait to get this thing back to work! While waiting on cylinders, I have begun a basic tune-up. The throttle linkage seems to be hanging up until I hit the gas pedal again hard. Anyone had an issue w/any part of their throttle linkage? Just started happening.

    Looks like I've got a 2 1/2 ton short wheelbase dump truck. Thanks for everyone's help. Cab being replaced explains a lot. Still on a search to repair/replace wheel cylinders. Back @ it!

    Number stamped on the engine is T318-8488. Does it appear the cab has been changed?

    Frame number is 82821995 & door pillar tag number is 82586392. I am confused. Any input? Door pillar tag model number is B-3-HHA-192. Possibly not the correct pillar tag?

    You are right! I went ahead & measured center to center front & back wheels & came up w/128". Could my model # be wrong on the driver's side doorjamb tag. It says model B-3-HHA-192. The model # the original owner wrote on the front of the parts manual he gave me is B-3-JA128. I'm confused.

    Here is a picture of the truck. I know this does not help the cause much, just wanted all to know what my project looks like.

    Thanks for the part #'s MBFowler. Just went & re-checked wheel cylinder bores & they are in fact 1 1/2" & 1 3/4". I have found a 1 3/4" straight bore & will be checking that when it gets here. Thanks for the responses.

    Patina for sure

    Very nice find. Awesome shape. Can someone walk me thru how to put pictures w/my posts. My Grand kids will probably help out.
