cleaning up the inside

I took out the seat, old carpet, and gas tank from the uni i picked up in Connecticut (previously was in upper Idaho)
lots of rust, but very few holes.

it gives me something to do, but I'd really like to have a garage to put it in so I can work on it.

Cheers

did some more digging and cleaning and found some more rust holes (hidden where the cab mounts mount to the cab. the mounts seem solid, just the part of the cab that holds them is bad. ugh

You will probably find more holes if you take the front fenders off. The cab wall that makes the outer end of the cab mount holds water from the cowl vents. There are drains but they always plug up.

got the front clip off. were all front axles the same from 61-64 f100 and F250? mine have some extra humps to them and the drivers side has been broken off and rewelded ontop of the axle rather than bolted through it.

That axle is an Abortion. AKA junk

It is defiantly not a correct axle for a 61 to 66. and yes the F100 and 250 share axles.

it looks similar to this 57 to 60

I have a 2 spares here if you need a good one.

Hey Dave, I found a casting number on the front Axle. 3711410GM11
a google search on "3711410 axle" says it's for a 1955-1959 3/4- 1ton chevy truck. my front has 6 leafs.

What the hell man. Ha.ha

the rear is an eaton HO52 or Eaton HO72 out of a chevy from the 50s to 1972. 4.10 or 4.56 gears.

At least he hasnt found any toyota parts yet! Or worse..... Dodge. Hahahahahaha

Good enough of a project tho. If i were you id just cut out as much of the rust in the cab as you could and reshape some 1/2 inch sheet metal to weld down. I helped a cousin do this with his 70 f350 napco 4x4 truck. It was a ex fire truck for the rockies and the rust must have corroded a few hundred pounds of metal on that truck. It was a simple enough plan if you have the time and tools. Also if you do do that weld a few extra crossmembers under the newly created floor
