The broken back syndrome you refer to, was that caused by the 3/4 ton rear cab mounts? I know the 3/4 tons had a different mount that was not as durable as the 1/2 ton rear cab mounts.
The trans with O.D. came from a '57 passenger car, and I only swapped the gears in the rear end.
As for the cab mounts, to be honest, I'm not familiar with the differences between them, I've just noticed a heck of a lot of these trucks look as though they have a bad back. But you're right, it's probably bad mounts.

Re: Where's the 3/4 ton love?

Is that what you mean by the "broken back" look - the rear of the cab drops down so it no longer lines up with the box?

Yep. It produces a slightly V'ed effect in the body lines from cab to box and gives the appearance of a broken back.

Re: Where's the 3/4 ton love?

Yep the 3/4t mounts just dont last. I have to replace mine as well. Just the rears only tho. You have to get used 1/2t ones. Or there used to be a guy on here that had a bunch made and i got a pair from him. Cant remember his name or email. I will look it up and see if i can find him. His were really good quality. They looked almost exactly the same.

If you can find a contact for lilred66 he is still reproducing them, I heard just the other day from another board member that he got a set a few weeks ago, and they were real nice.

Re: Where's the 3/4 ton love?

Here's my '64 I just bought yesterday. No engine, manual trans. The body has seen some tough times, but the main reason why I jumped all over it was the fact that it has factory A/C. I have never seen in-dash air on a '64, because I thought that the option first came out in '65. Anyway, it's got the tinted windows, but the evaporator housing is missing from the firewall. Funny, I have seen those pieces intact on parts trucks, but it's always the dash pieces that are missing. This one was backwards. I bought it off of Craigslist from a guy who was getting evicted and had to get rid of it. I bought it for $200. The Chevy truck Gods were shining down on me yesterday.

I plan on getting it back together, stock-looking, and making a cool parts chaser out of it.

You can have your cab mounts redone by STEEL RUBBER PRODUCTS if you want to stay stock.

Here's my C-20!

It may be being changed to a six-lug setup, but it's still a 3/4 ton at heart.

I thought you could use the LMC/Goodmark 1/2 ton mounts? There is a write up around here somewhere...
