1. [oletrucks] transmission stuff (score: 1)
Author: "Devin Timmons" <>

Last year I swapped a 327/granny from a 66 1/2 ton into my 57 in place of the original 235/granny4. The trans doesn't shift very well, synchros are worn, so I picked up a granny 4 out of a 79 3/4 ton

I had a set of Toyota 4x4 wheels on my 57 for a while, but they did not fit the hub centers correctly. The holes in the center of the wheels were just a hair too small, and tightening down the lug nu

There's a guy locally who has a 4x4 TF, it appears he used the original frame and springs, just added the later model axles under it with some blocks for lift. I would think it wouldn't be all that d

Most "good" tire shops are willing to put a rim on your vehicle if it is questionable whether or not it will fit. Maybe not mount a tire, but if it will make the sale they will often times do it. I d

I missed what year truck you are working on, but I can give you the bit of experience I gained when I swapped engines in my '57 last spring. First, I found out that I could not drop the engine and tr

Ryan- What front end are you using? If you're running say a Camaro subframe, a set of Camaro headers should bolt right in. The small block has been used in so many applications, there's headers for j

Good looking rearend you got there. I'm debating doing the swap in my 57. After reading you post I have to ask, why change the column? I was thinking about going the opposite route, leaving the stock

This might be a dumb question, but why step down from a 400 to a 383? I'd say stick with the 400, just go through it and do a good rebuild, the 2 bolt is actually stronger on a 400. On 4 bolt 400s th

Easy way to tell a 454 from a 396/402 or 427 is the balancer. The smaller engines are internally balanced, and the balancer is smooth on the backside. If it has more weight on one part, then it is ex
