  1. Boards for 1 ton box

    Best of luck. With the bed kits coming in at $1000 + I searched everywhere for oak boards and couldn't source them here in Vancouver. With the finished sizing being 10 1/2 you need to find 12" boards (finished size as 11 1/4). I thought about getting 6" boards (finished size of 5 1/4) and glueing them together. For now I ' m using cedar which works to hold all the parts in place and make it driveable.
  2. New Flat Truck Owner

    Looks beautiful
  3. Need measures 14-17-1 lever.

    I think this is my favorite post ever. A guy in Brazil is missing a piece, and a guy (assuming) in Ohio posts pictures and dimensions, and someone handmakes the piece. Fascinating!
  4. Kingpin removal-am I missing something?

    hammered mine out. Tried different hammers, including shot filled, but in the end the big wooden mallet seemed to work best. But it was a long struggle
  5. why because for some reason the wife thinks car parts ruin the table, stain the floor, and generally just make a mess. Maybe I shouldn't have used the dishwasher as a parts washer, (but it does make the chrome shine)
  6. Carter B&B on an IND251, is the same setup I'm running. Only I'm not allowed to bring any of it into the house.
  7. King Pin

    I don't know if they will fit, but curious as to why you didn't look at 1956 for your 1956? https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/dodge,1956,truck,3.8l+230cid+l6,1488225,steering,king+pin+set,7340. For the amount of work, I think I would spend the extra $12 and move to the $50 ones that are on the 1956 list, BUT that still doesn't answer the question if it will fit.
  8. Brake light switch wiring help

    one side runs to the B terminal of the Headlight switch, the other side to the back taillight
  9. Why different levers?

    On my last fuel pump the mounting gasket, the one to the block would reduce the pump pressure. I had to remove the gasket, and just used rtv sealer and it worked great. The thickness of the gasket was enough to stop a good pump. I bolted it on, without any sealer or gasket and started the truck and it ran great. Pulled it off, cleaned everything, used a very thin layer of the rtv bolted it on.
  10. No run condition

    Unbolt the carb and check to make sure the manifold is dry. If its full of gas or water it won't be starting.
  11. Help with gas pedal return spring hookup

    21 minutes, hows that for service?
  12. Poor Fuel Economy

    then then wrap a rag around your air hose (or even a bicycle tire pump) and blow a bit of air into the gas tank (through the filler neck) this will push the gas down to the pump. If you have a helper you can have them crank it a couple of times when you are giving it some air. this will prime the pump
  13. Poor Fuel Economy

    for priming the pump, I have pressurized the gas tank. Not alot if you have good lungs you can blow into it. Or I have filled the carb float and poured some gas in the carb to get it started, and after a couple of seconds of running the gas appears in the glass bowl.
  14. not a comment on your trucks, I believe the single piston's can dissipate heat better than the smaller dual pistons. Which is why you find the single pistons on the one ton fronts, as they were used for the greater hauling weights and subsequent heat, which resulted in brake fade. The dual pistons were used on the 1/2 tons and 3/4 tons and as 4mula-dlx says should provide better stopping.
