It'll do it fine - it will just use a little gas.

Master cylinder

I have a 1966 mercury 500 2 ton.
looking for direction on where to get a rebuild kit for the master cylinder. Been looking online a lot, and can't seem to find anything.

It's a midland 300246 part number. If that means anything.

Thx.

Steve

1953 and later F350's were also available with DRW's, but there were no F350 pickups with DRW's until 1980.

F250's were not available with DRW's until 1985. F100/150's were never offered with DRW's.

Prior to 1980, DRW F350's were sold as a Cab & Chassis (no "back of cab equipment") or with a factory installed flat or stake bed.

IMO: Pass! If this is an F350, it will have leaf spring front/rear suspension, will ride and steer like an oxcart. Only wheels available have 6 lugs on a 7.25" bolt circle.

Power steering was not available, cannot be swapped in from later trucks.

Need to see pics so we can see what you're looking at. If this truck has a pickup bed, it's a previous owners aftermarket conversion.

Well you are admitting you pegged the speedo, are you also admitting to pegging the tach? Is your speedo accurate?

I'd keep it just the way it is. Looks like a nice truck and the dual wheels gives it some character.

I would guess that the speedometer was about 10 over 100 so it's not perfectly accurate. I was taching a touch over 4500 and I did have a bit pedal left.

Nowadays I have to keep it under 80 as I still haven't figured out my nasty driveline vibration that comes in at about 78 since I swapped the NP205 in.

Well back in the early 90s when I was a greenhorn I just completed a fuel injection course and was assigned to a GM garage. It was only for a couple of weeks just for some field experience and they were having difficulties with a 1 ton Dooley truck there they had for six months in the shop and could not figure out the problem with a bad vibration. I got lucky maybe but I spent less than two minutes looking at it and said either the drum is out of round or the axle is warped. The mechanic looked at me and said how the heck did you come up with that conclusion and I said well look at it. A new drum and the problem was solved.

I think mine has to do with my rear pinion angle being way out of wack. I just haven't got around to building shims for it yet.
