      I think the reason you were having issues was the change that the site owner did to the classifieds.  Check out the announcements and see if the new classifieds works for you (now all pay).

  10. Any suggestions on a better source for these cables? 



    1. ggdad1951


      for one they won't work...they  would need modification to work on our trucks.  These don't seem to be made for ROUND holes, not our round with flats, and the pin out the end is round as well.  My guess is they don't index either so your know would spin and not stay horizontal.   


      Roberts sells parts that I BELIEVE are correct (tell Gary hi from me if you call to find out), but I don't know what he charges.  I've always rebuilt them, but I charge $30 a cable so....

    Truck tires conversion to modern size

    I'm so experienced on 20" split rims, I have part numbers, pictures, and a need for 4 Goodyear 7.50 x 20, 10 hole, ball & socket, Budd wheels. I have a source, but lack pick up and delivery capabilities. Ruth and are considering a 20'er full of 7.50 to 9.00, and even 10.00 X 20" tires, they all want me to buy, (of coarse), but we have stopped our investigation ----- we have a business plan, a banker, available space, a port of call, a forwarder, contacts for insurance. I'm a 48 year member in good standing with United Association of Plumber and Steamfitters, Local 33 --- Our family -- well go figure --- Charlie Stephenson
