    ANSWERED 1949 Dodge B1D - no oil pressure

    check the again, being sure it is installed correctly. it is possible to install it "backwards", which results in no pressure.oilrelief valve

    Dodge T110L Eaton axle

    i concur about the 1350. i love the one in my b-1-fa, it really does make the big more driveable.truck edit: i hate the auto-link bullsh1t in the text editor. it makes typing replies nonsensical when it jumps the cursor back to the front of the auto-linked word. stupid.

    Can we get a good Windshield Gasket?

    my roberts gasket is still working fine after 11 years.
  5. mine came from NC; purchased it circa 1984.
  6. could be the data plate from a '51, but the cab/nose is a '53. also, with the '53 bed, it seems more likely to be mostly a '53, rather than a '51 with some swapped parts.
  7. lettering on the nose is also '53-only.
  8. the fluid drive emblems are correct. the dodge lettering on the dash would also hint at a '53 instead of a '51. here is a photo of the plate a '51 should have (my '52).

    1949 B1 1.5 ton brake question

    i don't know of a disc conversion, but i can assure you that the brakes in the 1.5 ton trucks work very well. i've hauled some 4-ton loads in mine, over some steep roads; braking was never an issue. the cylinders can all be rebuilt. the drums are harder to source/replace. the triple overriders are a nice feature on yours.

    Tappet Adjustment Cold

    that ^^ probably works well to set them initially. the "hot" adjustment is much easier than it appears; i'd never done it before, but i was able to adjust all on the running engine. tappet wrenches make the job even easier, but it can be done with a normal combi-wrench.
  11. ?? the 6v horn will work fine on 12v. my truck was converted to 12v, and has the original horn, which works great, and has since i bought the truck in 2007.

    1949 - My First (vintage) Dodge Truck

    the brake cylinder & diaphragm behind the gas tank is a midland booster. it was not for trailer applications, it is part of the original braking system. with the booster, the brakes on your truck will work VERY well; no need for disc brakes up front. the original axle was an eaton 1350 2-speed, vacuum operated. if you look closely, you can see the vacuum shift diaphragm on the rear differential. closeup of the numbers on the case of my 1350.
