That is a nice 54, and a fairly rare custom cab to boot. Good luck with your efforts...

[QUOTE=EffieTrucker;15932406]I don't know that it matters, but the rod is in the wrong hole in the clutch linkage.

I'm just wondering why the bottom hole should not be used. I am aware that the side hole is where the service manual says that the hooked rod is supposed to be. And, my truck had always had it hooked through the side hole. But I bought a repro "U"-shaped linkage piece (without worn out holes) and it appears to me that the lower center hole aligns better with the clutch arm. Is there a reason that the side hole is used? Maybe something to do with the way that the frame flexes with respect to the motor/transmission?

Front end work

Replacing front leaf springs, tie rod ends, drag link, shocks and king pins. This is turning out to be a lengthy process. Took apart springs and lubed them with white grease, then painted them. First side is installed along with tie rod end and shock. King pin removal was very difficult, but with a lot of heat, whiskey and a bfh, I overcame.

Nice job! I see you used the disc conversion from CPP. I know they use calipers from a 85 or so Chevy pickup. My question is what hoses did you use? I like the way they fit. Were they from the Chevy truck also? I am going to follow you along also as I am going to replace my king pins etc.
