    The half tons seem to have faired better than the 3/4 tons. Chuck says more 3/4 tons were made than half tons, but fewer 3/4s have survived because they were run to death. On 3/4s the front drums are NLA so you have to find them were you can used. Also axle housing and half shafts can be fractured. Frame fractures are also common from over loading. My half ton has a fractured front spring, but that's not terrible. The fronts hubs on both models are engaged full time, but the transfer case is engaged or disengaged as needed. Hope that helps some. Stu

    I'm thinking about selling the 5 speed OD are you still interested? Shipping will be a killer though. Let me know, Kevin Bigwin

    thanks so much for the very nice reply. understand completely about your dad holding on to them. I appreciate your future efforts on my behalf though. So, it is really not bad news when one can chat with a fellow enthusiast such as yourself. Keep me in mind down the road and if I dont have a solution by then, maybe things will work out. In the meantime, be safe and the best to you and your dad.

    i use to work at fleet parts and iv repaired many speedos and i just want to let you know do not you graphite it will travel up to the speedometer it self and lock it up the white lithium grease would work fine or if u want to relube it next time just go down to fleet parts and they will put some grease in a cup for u for free or at least they use too and i can also tell u that lubeing it is not going to solve the problem completly the nosie will come back and the cable will eventaly break it also might lock up your speedometer if it does lock up and then youll be spending alot more money to fix every thing
