I'm gonna try again on this, hoping this member and his truck resurface. I talked today with a different new member in CA that also has an F-2 Marmon-Herrington. I asked him if his truck had...

Not sure I follow the question. If you have 16" two part wheels now, switching to a more modern 16" F-250 wheel will fit fine. Your stock F-2 axle has 12" rear drums that will accommodate any 16"...

Speaking of, originally F-2s didn't have widow makers, trade name Firestone RH-5° outer rims. That was the F-3 standard wheel in 17" size. F-2s came with 16" one piece wheels. Naturally things...

I wouldn't try to remove them. Getting the stainless back straight would be a choir. Think I'd use one of the rust converters/neutralizes then, after replacing the studs, coat them with a good red...

Welcome. Glad to have you join the group, and glad to see another F-2 being saved. If you are not concerned about use of original hub caps, any 1997 F-250HD or earlier F-250 wheel will do the job...

I'm now out of wheels. I also have fear that the yard we've had a relationship with out west has now dried up. I'll be going back out on the road looking through yards, and will update this if I...

If I'm following the first question correctly, the U channel and boxed upper plate stand about 3.5" above the truck's frame rail. The flat support lip of the angle iron should align with the lips of...

Hope we hear of somebody trying it. I don't think it would be hard for the o.p. to fab his own, as he's said is the plan, but new pieces would make for a clean installation. Stu

That rear U channel looks close. Might be a good starting point. Not sure what the wood blocks are for, I guess inserts for the U channel. Edit - I just repeated what you said. Duh. Stu

You got a major deal on the 19.5s Chris, and if the tires aren't cracked you stole them. And no shipping to boot. Great score. Stu

This is the first time I've really studied that part of a bed. Still a long way away for me. I wish I could make a line diagram of the cross section similar to the above middle wood cross member,...

The F-350 frame will have thicker and taller "C" channel rails than the F-100. Assuming 1956 is the same as my 1954 reference, the channel is 7" tall on F-350 vs 6" tall on long bed F-100/250, and...

I remembered we have this schematic drawing of the 48-52 Express bed. It gives you an idea of how the rear metal cross member fits into the bed. Stu
