  4. Steering Gear Lube

    The grease fitting fix was very common when the steering shaft oil seal and gasket started to leak. There are bearings at the top and bottom of the steering gear box and the upper bearings will not...

    The front hubs are a lot smaller on the 2WD trucks.

    The last 2WD trucks were built in 1951, designated with "473HT" in the model number - maybe for for "half-ton" although the same chassis was...
  6. Tires and Paint

    Totally agree - if you're 4WD, all four tires need to match. I have one of the rare 2WD trucks, so I put "road" tires on the front, basically a passenger car tread - with the gnarly tires on the...

    Yep, lots of parts crossed over years and even models. As BMorgil said, parts were used until the bins were empty.

    Even if you go to a custom piston/overbore solution, you have pushed that block further than it was ever intended to go. If the engine is original, sleeve it to keep it. If it's an after production...

    Check Valve

    I don't think I have ever heard of a master cylinder check valve - in fact I know I haven't. Very informative discussion.
