  1. The ones I got from DCM did not come with an origin label but have been going strong for over 2 years now. Thanks John here it is in all its glory and hope you find some more shackles!
  2. For a 53 B4C you are correct. If you zoom in the pictures you will see both the front and rear and they are the same. I got new ones from DCM but I just checked and they are currently out of stock, I am sure other vendors carry these maybe Roberts? Also note the drivers side is left hand thread while passenger is right hand thread, just like the wheel lug nuts. Hope this helps, Tom
  3. Got mine from DCM and worked just fine. https://dcmclassics.com/dust-and-air-seals/225-rw-107-door-window-channel.html
  4. I used brush on POR 15 for the frame and axles and used spray Rustoleum for the other parts, backing plates, tie rods and such. I second the idea of strictly following the directions for application - the prep work makes all the difference in the end product.
  5. Welcome, Try running your serial number (VIN) for the truck here and see what you get. https://www.townwagon.com/4853registry/index.php
  6. That second transmission looks at lot like mine with the same case number 088221. A New Process 420, the same used in M37 military applications and it is a four speed. Maybe this website can help: http://www.jobrated.com/tranmission-id.html
  7. Finally got to the old Gulf station in Quincy, FL just up the road from where I live and took some pictures. It is not a working station but is set up with all kinds of memorabilia and from the street sure looks like it operates.
  8. Nice looking and the color is great! 😁
  9. That is interesting. Makes me wonder if my tailgate has been replaced at some point and is not the original.
  10. That is a sharp looking bed! I am also jealous of that tailgate with the raised lettering - mine doesn't have that option it is just plain.
  11. Your bed looks great, all the knots really add character.
  12. I think the two are different. The New Port Engineering website list motors for replacing stock electric and motors for replacing stock vacuum units. I would imagine you will find the arms are different lengths. Pick your best set of arms and go from there I guess. The kit did come with replacement pieces where the motor attaches to the arm to replace the rubber. Good luck!
