Big Job Number Help

Am looking at a 57 T700 Big Job. Can't tell for sure if the first VIN digit is a 1, I, or T, am assuming it is T. Anyway, VIN is T(?)70N7U34982, date 22F, trans U, axle 16, GVW 28000, 172hp @ 3600, DSO 440202. Exactly what Y block did these things have? How hard is it to find brake parts? Thank you in advance!

Yes, it's "t". T70 equals T-700. '57 should be either a 272 HD for 700, and smaller, or could be when they went to the large motors. In that case, it should be either a 302, or 332 Lincoln Y-block. Most brake parts can be had from NAPA.

T70 = T700.

N = 302 Lincoln derived Y block. This is not the same engine as used in a Lincoln.

7 = 1957.

U = Louisville KY Assembly Plant.

34982 = 1957 Numerical Sequence of Assembly, the trucks specific serial number.

22F = Assembled June 22, 1957.

U = With a 302 = Clark model 250-V3 5 Speed Direct.

16 = Eaton model 28MR Rear Axle / 7.79-1 / 28,000 lbs. Rear Axle Capacity.

440202:

44 = Twin Cities MN Ford District Sales Office, where the original selling dealer ordered the truck from.

0202 = Domestic Special Order number. The truck was ordered special by the original purchaser, not "bought off the lot."

You may have trouble finding original wheel cylinders. I may be able to locate NOS originals, other brake parts that NAPA will not have.

Get the parts cluck at NAPA to look in their paper parts catalogs, as I doubt any of these parts will be listed on their computer.

Thanks guys. As always, Bill, your decode is so detailed. Unfortunately the truck was up for silent auction and my low ball bid was much to low. Too bad, it would have made a real neat work truck. Hope the successful bidder wasn't a scrapper.
