Possibly expand your search to Maryland, PA, and Delaware? I didn't have too much trouble in PA finding a decent 117" wheelbase long bed.

$200 bucks

$50 for a frame?

JoeDoh, that floor looks awful. Cool to see you bringing it back to life!

Re: 1941 1/2 ton project Hannah

haha man I think those prices are just for the beds! although the second one looks like he priced the frame and the rear end at 100 each, so 200 for a roller still isnt bad money

Re: 1941 1/2 ton project Hannah

well it aint gonna fix itself. after staring at the body mounts for a couple days I decided to jump right in, complicated planning wasnt going to fix it. The problem was the mount was a channel and the outside of the channel had rusted off, so the body mount was just flat steel, and the weight of the cab twisted it this way and that. I looked at cutting it all off and rebuilding it but I will be honest, that was a lot of work for a truck I just pieced the floor back together on. so I went simple, flat steel under the mount with a hole for the bolt to pass through, and rebuild the outside channel by welding it to the cowl for support. now the repair is under compression (instead of tension if I had cut the old mount off) and the bolt clamps the repair together just like my rear mount repair.

quickadiddle and done. I broke my tacks and put the rear body mounts in the correct place (they were 2" off) and dropped the cab on again.

the engine move worked out perfect, the dizzy has room, the valve cover is an inch off the firewall, the shift lever is in the perfect place. I dont think this one will even need a trans bump.

and the state was quick as usual, tagged it monday, title in the mail friday. DO YOUR HOMEWORK. the DMV appreciates it

Re: 1941 1/2 ton project Hannah

Good to see it moving along. Thats always a good feeling when you get the title... some people wait until they're about done with the truck/car before they apply for the title. I always do that first. I want to make sure its official before I put any time and money into it.

Re: 1941 1/2 ton project Hannah

me too, everything up to this point has been mostly focused on deconstruction and the drivetrain but I got the title before repairing the cab.

and of course this week bowtie bits listed a cab thats light years better than this one on craigslist for $300

Thats a nice price. Jeff said a while back that he was getting rid of his used parts and just planning to sell the new stuff after it was gone. But I imagine that he has a lot of used parts still.

Re: 1941 1/2 ton project Hannah

well lets just make some more steel upgrades to this frankencab shall we?

pedals day! I started by marking a bunch of dimensions for the dash and center of the original steering collum then whacking a fresh section of 76 year old steel from the firewall.

I wanted to see if my offal cut from the s10 firewall had a chance of lining up.

well I'll be dipped
IMG_7798 by Joe Doh, on Flickr

that triple hole on the left is the clutch master hole, and it looks like it will fit. there may be something to this...

IMG_7800 by Joe Doh, on Flickr

the steering column needs to be at 12.5" to be centered on the gauges, its at 13", would YOU notice the 1/2"?

IMG_7801 by Joe Doh, on Flickr

not only does the clutch pedal look to be about right, the big brace for the clutch pedal and steering support will fit in the dash with only a couple modifications.

IMG_7802 by Joe Doh, on Flickr

the steering shaft will come out just over and right (from the front) of the valve cover. what the heck this is working better than I ever hoped. should be a straight shot.

the only thing that even made me a little apprehensive is how far the steering column sticks out from the dash but since its a 4 bolt mount column I can just move the brackets up to 6 inches and it column will move into the dash that much.

my only regret? I didnt think it would work at all so I didnt sand the paint off the piece for welding. now I have to take it back out and sand it haha
