  1. Absolutely, however it will need to be a bit deeper than the thickness of the hinge, as you need to compensate for the rabbits in each board so the shovel slat fits flat throughout the length.
  2. Like I said in the last post (I didn’t see your post), it looks like they put a circular saw on it and did the dado. It looks like you did the same thing for that “original look.” Fantastic details here I really appreciate it as I couldn’t find any details at all around this. thank you
  3. This picture makes it look like they just put a circular saw on the boards, ran it up a few inches, enough to clear the hing and left the taper where they lifted the saw off of the boards. I guess that would be a quick way to do it, but I thought I’d use a router and do it a bit cleaner. Very interesting. Great pic! Thank you!
  4. My problem was that there was not enough left of The originals to get anything but crumbled wood. If you could possibly get me some measurements of the dado, that would help me out a bit. Length and width I’m ok with, depth would help me though, Thanks!
  5. So I’m thinking one of two options. Either cut the hinge so it supports the gate using the 2 vertical bolts only and doesn’t even go to the bed. Or, put the brace in place, mark the wood, cut an inset into the wood, and set the hinge in place and bolt the bed strip over the hinge and put the carriage bolt through both. Any thoughts or recommendations? I’m assuming option 2 is how it was originally designed, so I’ll probably go that route.
  6. JBNeal, I use the parts manual on DPETCA, I didn’t see any parts for any of the beds. Is it incomplete? What do you use on your truck? I’ve seen several pics of 3/4 and 1 tons that don’t have this piece visible in their beds. Curious to see some examples of what “stock” looked like.

  8. I looked for the part at DCM, and they have one like mine, however, theirs has 2 countersunk bolt holes and 2 regular holes for bolts, where mine has a square hole for a carriage bolt, which leads me to believe it goes on top of the wood, then the 2 holes for bolting to the vertical surface under the bed.... I guess the 1/2 tons are different because the 3/4 and 1 tons have a wider bed?
  9. Hello all, I obviously Have a 1950 B2C. I redid the bed a couple of years ago and I’m having doubts about where I put the center tailgate support bracket. To me, it is really the only place it could go, but somehow it just doesn’t make sense. I’ll post some pics and show you the part. Can anyone tell me if this is supposed to go on top of the wood or between the wood and the back support? I cannot imagine why this would be on top of the wood, but it fit there like it should have. My truck had original wood in it and this piece was on top of the old boards, but that may have been a POs doing. As always, any help or pics are appreciated. Steve
  10. No screws on my regulators, only one nut, and if I tighten that much more, I’ll need a 6ft cheater pipe... I think DodgeB4YA hit the nail on the head. The spring in the crank assembly probably broke and was removed by the PO.
  11. No, there were no springs in the handle gear case. That is what I was wondering, there should be a spring that engages the crank to the regulator itself, or a latch of some sort, so when the glass is moved without the handle it prevents the glass from moving. It makes perfect sense. Tim is looking for a replacement regulator for me now, so I should be set. I’m sure those springs are non-existent... thanks for clearing that up!
