These " wedges " were under the bolts on the LCA pivot bar. I thought I took more photos during disassembaly but this one is the best view. WHERE DO THEY GO ? ( oh and what are they for ? ) None of my parts , or shop books show or mention them. I believe they were on the driver side, rear set of bolts, but cannot recall. I was too concerned that day about the coil springs killing me. :-) Thanks ! Clay
I found these INSIDE the frame at the front end. One on EACH side. Just loose laying in mud and sludge. matching set, each side???? Couldn't be an accidental drop from and old repair. Not TWICE ! Came loose from their appointed duty ??? But WHAT ? Any thoughts folks?? Clay
Hey Guys, Im in the process of doing the diesel swap into my '52 B3b 1/2 ton and I've been fiddling with the front suspension. Its all torn down and i got new leaf springs from St. Louis Spring. Now im in the process of collecting the necessary parts to put it all back together when the time comes, king pins, shackles, tie rod ends, drag link, etc. This got the gears turning in the old brain... since the diesel is heavier (750 lbs dry) than the flat head 6, would i be better sourcing a 1 ton or 1-1/2 ton front axle and spindles? Also would it be a good idea to get a steering box from one of those trucks in order to provide greater mechanical advantage when turning? Im not familiar with the heavier spec trucks so any help would be greatly appreciated. I decided to make this a separate thread instead of in bedding it in my "1952 B3b with Cummins 4bt" so that people can search for it in the future easier and hopefully it will help them out. Thanks, -Chris
