Re: Alternative to split rims on 1.5 ton trucks?

Yeah, Budd called it their “Double Cap Nut” (DCN) system. With obviously the “Inner Cap Nut” and “Outer Cap Nut”. Stu

Each and every wheel you have on your tonners, Gary, were made by the Budd Company. Stu

Re: Alternative to split rims on 1.5 ton trucks?

Remounting the 17” widow maker centers is becoming fairly common. Stockton Wheel has done it several times that I know of using new tubeless 17” x 7” outer rims. Somewhat wider than the stock 5.5”...

Re: Alternative to split rims on 1.5 ton trucks?

That’s a Firestone RH having the solid/continuous side ring. Can be tricky to work on if you’ve never done it, but safe to keep in service if undamaged.

Re: 46 Convertible drawings

A start would be found in the 1944-1952 Ford Body Parts Catalog. It has the convertible schematic body drawing with labeled parts groupings. Page 466 is the schematic. These old books can be found...

These blueprints of the 1937 might help. Stu

Re: 1940 ford sportsman?

Gary - is 1941 close enough if nobody has the specs for 1940? I have the handbook with all that for 1941. Stu

Re: 1951 Ford Split Rims

No, those are the ones to avoid. The Ford and Dodge based 1960s/70s/80s Class As are the ones to look for. The GM based Class As use wheels having a 10 lug x 7.25” pattern. All 10 lugs are used on...

Re: 1951 Ford Split Rims

The two pictured are Firestone RH-5° widow makers. Please find replacements. The best replacement is the 22.5” that is the tubeless replacement for the 20” tube type. I know of at least one...

Re: 1951 Ford Split Rims

Yet to be determined here is whether Bob’s 1951 truck has widow maker RH-5° wheels or the safer locking side ring style wheels. Most likely the truck is not an F-1 or F-2, which would have one piece...

Re: 1951 Ford Split Rims

An RH-5° widow maker side ring mounts to the rear of the base rim. If Bob has an F-3 and airs the wheels while mounted on the truck the ring will explode inward toward the truck and be held captive...

Re: 1951 Ford Split Rims

You really need to tell us more in your question. Are these stock wheels? No stock F-1 or F-2 had multi-part stock 16” wheels in 1951. ALL stock 17”, 18”, and 20” multi-part F-3 through F-6 wheels...

Re: 17 inch split rim replacment

Right, alternatives that we’ve detailed more fully over on FTE are the 17.5” x 5.25” (Budd 70720 or 73240) and 19.5” X 5.25” (Budd 71410) true tubeless wheels that were introduced in 1956 and...

Re: 17 inch split rim replacment

The brake drums on a 1953 M250 will be 12” Bendix style. Any pre 1996 16” F-250 wheel will get you by, but to keep the original appearance the wheel to find is the 16” x 6.00” that was an option in...

Re: 46 pick up 1/2 or 3/4 ton?

There was no post war 3/4 ton before the F-2/F-3 of 1948. The 8 x 6.5” pattern too was first introduced in 1948. Stu

Re: Split rim, wide 5?

Searched the books but don’t find it. The Goodyear split ring/rim combined with the wide five pattern isn’t listed anywhere. Probably means it was a military wheel which didn’t normally appear in...
