Jim,
This is great stuff. I really enjoy the history on these trucks and I admire you guys that work so hard to preserve it.

Thanks Bobby

As all you guys knew before I did, It is a slow and hopefully steady pace. right now, work is a little slow, so I could actually go and work on it during the day , Also , as all of you know, it takes a lot of shop space when the thing is totally disassembled. I'll try and shoot some pics of parts hanging in various spaces in both garages

The Brake Job

One of the first things I did was go over the brake system
Had all new lines fabricated at NAPA
Rebuilt all wheel cylinders. ( 6 ) Brake Cyl were over sised due to weight of water and tank. I could not accertain if it was done in Ford factory or Seagrave factory.
Rebuilt Master
Had brake boster rebuilt.
New frt axle seals, repacked bearings
Pulled rear axles, repacked bearings, new Diff fluid ( I believe 11 pints)
Each rear hub and drum weighed 145#. I possistioned them by placing on a funiture dolly, then putting a block under eacj leg, one at a time, untill it was of proper height. Then used wood shimms to get it the exact height of the axle. When perfect height was reached, I could simply just slide dolly forward. The hub went right in, no damage, no maring. NO STRAIN

Jim,

I can hardly imagine what kind of room a big truck takes when you start tearing into it. I can barely manage with my little half ton. For us regular truck guys we have a hard time realising how big a truck like yours is. It wasn't until Keith posted a pic of his truck loaded onto a lowboy for transport that I could fully appreciate just how big of a truck it is.

It takes a special kind of crazy to rebuild a big truck, everything is big, heavy, and expensive. My hats off to you.

Bobby

Jim,
Your post made me smile. NO, I don't get enjoyment out of other peoples misery. It just makes me feel good to know that I'm not alone.

I do that sort of thing all the time

Bobby

Rean end leak

fat fingers hit the send ugh

I have identified the leak coming from the center of part 4674, which neans to me, that the seal 4676 is bad (7EQ 4676 ). Question is this How difficult is this going to be to do, I recently put in all new gear lube- 11 pints. Can that be reused? I will need part 7EQ 4507. gasket, 7EQ 4676 seal and I dont know weather I can use 7EQ 4674 Retainer and grese seal over. Is that a solid part or is that something you would replace like a seal

Thanks, I am going to try and post actual pics of the leak

JimG
