The retainers are the upper and lower sleeves. None of those two retainer part numbers are on my locators. I wonder if Dentside ones would work?

Never thought of that, Jeff. Do they use the same type of retainer?

Different part numbers. On a Dentside the upper retainers (sleeves) come in the upper mounts. The lower sleeves have a nut attached to them. So they are a sleeve, washer, and nut assembly.
D4TZ1000157D......Cab mounts.
D4TZ1000157C......radiator support.


Here is a pic I found on g**gle of the "C".

Have to check the thickness, but, those just might work!

Thanks a bunch for the clarification. With my thick skull and old mans disease I am a little slow sometimes. Thanks again Nuke and you too Jeff. Oh by the way, I bought a 66 F-100 custom cab today that is disassembled but the body is almost flawless. The best part is the price: 400.00! I'll post pictures tomorrow.

I purchased a set of absorbers from Prothane for my cab and core support on my f250 4x4. They matched what came of the truck for height and diameter. However, I was lucky to be able to use the retainers from my old mounts because as nuke said you can't find them or mod the 2wd ones.

Yeah, I saw those, but, my retainers were toast! I wish someone would repop those damn things!

My body cart

Here's a couple of pics of my body cart I made. It's large enough so that I can tilt the cab on it's back to address the underside.

Nice find. A lot of fires happening now? Where did you pick it up at? It looks like south of Nampa close to the river.

You guessed it. It was out on Sommercamp road south of Marsing. All that smoke you see is from Oregon fires they say.

Time to order some sheet metal!
The payoff of the work table is when you can effortlessly access the underside.
I almost needed both hands to tilt this thing back.

That is a very nice cart you made. Looks to be a great working height as well.
