That's a different one then. Not a lot of Colemans. Cool. It's not uncommon for the fluid to leak into the actual diaphragm chamber of the booster. It can then get sucked up in to the motor...

There wasn't a factory 4x4 option on the '55, let alone the Big Job in '55. It would be a MH conversion, which that technicality can make a huge difference when discussing parts. The brake parts...

The frame on the F-350 is larger. It is a little taller, and a little thicker. The front fenders on your truck will be the same as the F-100, as the dually used the 16" wheels. The F-100 fender is...

The lever, pawl, and rod, are the same as the smaller trucks that use the transmission mounted park brake. Tons of them out there. The sector bracket is different. I may know of some correct ones...

Hey...What's up? I'll see if I can track down some pictures. I don't have any of me driving the Detroit 6-71 powered '53-ish, the 135 miles to Portland, but I think I may have some other pictures. ...

The stock tailgate says FORD on the back. No, no new progress. Been busier than all get out. This truck didn't have hub caps originally. I don't think F-350s had hub caps.

Yes, all 53-55 tags are in the glove box door. 56 was located on the left door pillar. Now, for '53 the vin number seems to always be found on the front cross member. I've not heard of any being...
