Morning Oletruckers,

I am looking for some advice on a replacement drive line and rear end for my 
52 GMC long bed. I rebuilt the  original 248 and have found that it is 
working way too hard at 60 miles per hour. Since I don't intend to do any 
towing with the truck I am looking for a ratio that will get freeway speed of 
60 - 65 without working the new engine so hard.

Additionally, with that type of speed would it be a good idea to go to disc 
brakes on the front? If so is there a straight forward way of accomplishing 

I've been on the list for about 4 wks and have enjoyed reading the questions 
and replys. I wish I had known about you folks 5 years ago when I started on 
my old truck.

Thanks for the help!
