WW2 Military Dodge 4X4 ambulances used wrapped springs also.
You don't need no stinking front bumper.
Nice work putting it back into shape.
Try Vintage Wiring of Maine. They build complete harnesses and may have a source.
Nice, nice, nice find. Is there any history on why it was parked so long?
I love to hear the stories.
Take the battery back to the store and see if they will replace or pro-rate it under warranty.
Yep, or a plugged line. Still a plumbing prob.
This is a new to you truck?
Is there a shut off on any of the oil lines?

I thought I knew everything about my '56, great to learn new stuff! That trans panel is very clean, I'll do the same with mine.
Ok thanks Cerberus, appreciate the info on the TKO tunnell mod.
One more thing since I jacked my own thread. Is that removable panel on...
That's exactly what I'm doing(TKO 600). So did you have to cut the trans tunnel or just a little hammer massaging?
Thanks, I've leaning toward the Centerforce II. Which one are you guys using?
About to install a clutch / pressure plate in my 56 Chevy 2 door Sedan. 327 with a solid lifter cam and 4.11 rear gear. I drive it a lot so, light...
