Just what years are you referring to as 'later trucks'?

e.
60 to 63 shows up as a different shackle rebuild kit than the 64 to 66. Everywhere i look the earlier ones are on backorder but the laters are available.

Re: Work begins on the 1962 C10 4WD

Check with member 61K10. He and I have discussed this previously. Both our builds discuss this some. 61K10 has earlier K10 and mine is a 64’K10.

Yes. Having a high or low hump depends on what transmission the truck came with. I'm not 100% sure what hump was used with what transmission, but I'd bet someone else here will.

Re: Work begins on the 1962 C10 4WD

Yes the C series cabs were available with the high hump trans cover. There is no difference between a '60-'66 C series cab and a '60-'66 K series cab. The frame VIN is on the top of the frame flange on the drivers side below where the generator/alternator would be, as well as on the side of the frame under the cab.

Re: Work begins on the 1962 C10 4WD

yes as aotte1 (les) said go through his thread as there is info. if i remember right the difference is the front bolt setup. the early ones have a bolt and nut. it also screws into the hanger (nut comes off then unscrew the bolt) the later fronts are similar to the rear ones as they screw in. I only had to replace the front bushings as my bolts were good. Go to aotte1's build as much info there as in mine.

LMC truck part? classic parts?

Re: Work begins on the 1962 C10 4WD

Bent up and ran all the brake lines. All new brake hoses, calipers, pads, bled the brake lines etc. Real close to moving and stopping on its own.

Re: Work begins on the 1962 C10 4WD

A side note on the rear brake hose..... We have a swapped in 14bolt rear end. A 73- 87, k20 stock brake rear hose is no where near long enough so we ordered a extended brake line hose for A 4 TO 6 lift. It is still barely long enough. These trucks sit very high from the factory. We may still have to get a longer brake hose in the rear.

Re: Work begins on the 1962 C10 4WD

Anybody know of a source to get the rear leaf spring shackles for a k10? Are they were used on other year vehicles? Mine look worn out like this pic. If not, do you think they can be drilled out and sleeved at a machine shop?

Also where to get the little rubber bushings/spacers/washers that go on the front spring, rear shackle?

Re: Work begins on the 1962 C10 4WD

Rear disc brakes going on the 14 bolt. This thing better stop good when done.

Got the rear shackles from LMC and most of the bushings and pins in.

Re: Work begins on the 1962 C10 4WD

We were going to just rebuild the rear drum brakes but the drums could not be turned anymore. The price of the new HEAVY drums, plus brake shoes was almost 2/3 of the price of the complete rear disc brake kit. The wheel bearings and races looked ok on the full floating hubs so we just cleaned everything up and reused them. A new inboard seal on the hubs and aluminum felpro gasket on the axle flange

Re: Work begins on the 1962 C10 4WD

Still have to weld on some brake hose tabs and run new brake line from the "T" on the pumpkin then every single thing will be new with the brake system except for the pedal.
Next gonna work on the rear leaf springs shackles bushing etc. I have several bushings we have ordered that look correct and some that don't???

I think they used those shackles from '47-'59 on the 3/4 and up trucks.

Re: Work begins on the 1962 C10 4WD

Agree with Pratt on the rear spring shackles. They were used for many years on older bigger trucks. You removed your bushing for shackle in photo?
Think their are some pins on eBay now NOS.

Re: Work begins on the 1962 C10 4WD

I would think a good machine shop could weld these, redrill and bush them.....Rear disc's are awesome never seen anything like it on an older truck.

Re: Work begins on the 1962 C10 4WD

Rear brake hose tabs welded on , then bent up and ran the brake lines from the tee. Everything buttoned up and maybe tomorrow bleed the rear brakes amd test them out.

Re: Work begins on the 1962 C10 4WD

Does your truck have mechanical clutch linkage, or a hydraulic clutch?
If it's mechanical (and looks factory, at least under the dash and through the firewall), then I'm betting that's a '63 cab that was set on an original '60-62 chassis.
Besides the hood and grille being added to the truck when it was built/modified, that truss/brace over the rear end housing isn't original.
