  1. I ordered my replacement tie rod ends from Rock Auto for a '54 Dodge Truck. Shows they have them now.
  2. Ready for install, then it starts raining....
  3. Gotta get MC 1st for dimensions. Will let you know kind sir. Already got the 3/16" line for everything.
  4. Sorry pics are outta order, figure 'em out. LOL
  5. I've been a slacker on posting, but not at getting parts. Have everything to complete the front disc conversion install, got my replacement rear axle. Dana 35, 3.73, disc from a 95 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Got the pasg. floor board repaired with a trunk/floor pan kit from POR-15. Got all grease zerts replaced on the frame and greased the every living S*** out of them last weekend. This holiday weekend has been getting the new to me rear axle ready for install. Got some help from a friend with some good tools, and the help from my son to finish it off. If weather holds out tomorrow, son and I wi
  6. Congrats on your new adventures! Thanks for all the insight you've provided in the past! Eric
  7. In reference to your body mounts above, the Left Front on my '54 only has an upper bushing, and shorter bolt. No steel post in the center of bushing. My service manual indicates this too. Just a thought?
  8. Finally ordered the new to me rear axle that will be swapped into the truck, '95 Jeep Grand Cherokee Dana/Spicer 35C, 3.73, disc brakes. Before buying an off the shelf Jeep manual for tear down/rebuild. I'm reaching out to see if anyone on the forum may have the book that could email the pages from the manual. I know youtube and google can do the trick, just an old school guy that likes paper to get greasy and read over n over again. The backing plates got beat up in transit, but they are still solid and look like they can be saved with some BFH help. Thanks in advance. Eric
  9. Might find some helpful info in this build thread.
  10. We replaced all but one rear seal under the rear output shaft. I believe it's the retainer for the lower shift rail of gears, didn't want to mess anything internally up.
  11. I found the 4 speed gasket set from Vintage Power Wagons, was reasonable and all correct. They are cork gaskets, when I installed them I still applied a thin coat of RTV for my peace of mind. It actually worked out because my kids got extra credit in COVID schooling for doing it. I don't have any input on pulling the parking brake drum. Sorry.
  12. Got the cab pulled off again, and put it back on the stand I'd made before. It was just tucked in storage under other parts and couldn't get a picture. Should work out ok with setting in on the back after I get the door reinforcements in.
  13. I'm learning that! Mine is apparently a very early C series. My entire drive line was built between May '53 and September '53.
  14. Nice looking truck, funny how some of your patina looks the same as mine around the windshield area.
