Modern trucks have the D-60 rear in combo with a D-44 front, so maybe the same was done back then. Stu
If I remember correctly, Chuck once told me he adapted a turning knuckle out of a Caddy Eldo for use in a 30s or 40s woody a fellow had him tinker on.

I started taking that front axle apart. It will need new tie rod ends! Those puppies are stuck, stuck, stuck!!! However, once I got the seal retainer/tie rod mount off, the hub/drum assembly rotated around the trunnions very smoothly. Nothing like the smell of 90 wt. grease!

Ken - I don't think a winch would have been a Ford option. Probably it would have been a M-H option or an aftermarket add on. We've seen them commonly on the big models, but not on the 3/4 ton or one tons. The trucks were, however, able to accept PTOs mounted on the transmissions. M-H also had their own PTO to mount on the truck's transfer case. Stu

I'd much prefer a Big Job (C-750, -800, or -900) but a C is a C. I'd be stoked with any 56 (or 53-55) coe. BUT, I don't plan on using anything other than the sheet metal. So the Big Job wish is little more than emblems, badges, maybe a hood scoop.
