Re: Columbia axle in 1934 1 1/2 ton truck

GB, According to the article that Fred linked, this axle was made available in '35, so they all would have been full floating. This would have been a kit from Columbia like the ones for the car...

Re: In defense of 6 cylinders

My Mom and Dad had a '52 station wagon with a 215 six and 3 speed overdrive when I was a kid. I wish I had the car today. Dad scrapped it when they bought a new Ranch Wagon in '66 with a 390.

Re: Gordon & Smith compressor questions Photos Added

Thank you for your reply and complements. After doing a little research I was thinking more like $1500.00-$1750.00. Maybe I am thinking too low?
Thanks again, Mark

Re: Ford F3 Rear Axle and Brakes

The frames were widened on the 1/2 and 3/4 ton trucks in '76 or '77 to about 37" from the SAE standard of 34". I believe the track width was widened in '73, hence the recommendation for the Dana 60...

Re: 52 F1 king pin play

I have sleeved a number of bigger truck and school bus axles. Sleeveing would be the most expensive route to go. I would personally use oversize pins or another axle, sleeve as a last resort.
