  1. My wheels are custom made and look good. It may be hard to find a stock 6 x 7.25. Take a look at the guys below: https://www.amwheelspecialist.com/obsolete/ I don't know if Coker has anything, if not they may be able to direct you.
  2. Has anyone on the board ever been in one? I have always wondered how strong the fumes were.
  3. Oh no, this is a beast of an M35 with a diesel engine. I know what you are talking about now. I didn't realize they are so rare. We had a couple (of what I believe were mid 50's) in the Philippines in the late 80's.
  4. Hey Brent, what did you expect? the ad said custom interior.
  5. I don't know if you have seen this series. I love these old videos.
  6. Ahhh yes. That "engineering" we all love so much. BTW, I love a good VW and have enjoyed your pics of those as well.
  7. Hey Pete, you may already know this: from your picture your anchor bolts need to be adjusted. Drum brakes get a lot of bad press, but adjusted correctly I don't mind them. I also don't drive on the highway. Thanks for the thread, I have been enjoying watching your truck come together. Another old Dodge coming back to life. JD
  8. You certainly could be right, but he is saying he performed a tune up because of the problem.
  9. Fuel delivery makes a lot of sense, but it seems you have checked everything. I had an old Jeep truck with a similar problem and it was a pinched fuel line. How are your temperature and oil pressure gauges when the jerking is happening?
  10. Did you check the springs on the mechanical advance while you were in the distributor? It's a stretch, but something to think about. Does it run fine at 40 until it gets warm?
  11. You can't change out the spindle from 1 ton to 1/2 ton, but you can change the axle. Then you get into a mismatch problem with the rear end bolt pattern etc. In my case, I don't want to give up the original axle.
  12. If you wouldn't mind, let me know how the conversion turns out. I have been thinking about doing it, but am concerned with the spindle reduction. Also, I really don't mind drum brakes, it adds spice to life. But if the final product is good I may convert. JD
  13. https://www.robertsmotorparts.com/brake-parts-1 and they are pretty helpful on the phone. VPW as well.
