  • 49 to 55 Trucks

    I am building disc brake conversion kits for the front of all 3/4 ton trucks. Does anyone know if the front spindles were the same size on 3/4 tons & 1/2 tons back in 49 up to 55? I looked in all of my books and it appears to be the same except they mention changes with certain models and serial numbers. I need to know for sure if they stayed with the same size spindle or if it was changed. If anyone has any info it would really help me. Thanks.

    I must be missing something. My parts book shows the same part numbers for all 2R, 3R, E, and early 2E models, both half-ton and 3/4 ton. The only change was on 3/4-ton models midway through 1956.

      Thanks Skip. My books all show that the 1/2 ton & 3/4 ton is the same but then another book said that they changed after certain serial numbers. I'm not going to worry about it.
