Re: '60 GMC 4x4 Long Fenderside

Trying to do some cheap upgrades at this point, and had a couple of questions.

First question is, does anyone know of a rattle can paint that matches the original silver interior paint? I got a new to me gas tank for in the cab, and am working on cleaning the yellow/orange paint off of it, so I can paint it the correct color. I wanted to paint behind it too, so that part is basically done for now, and I can pretty much just leave it be, as I work on other things.

Secondly, The gasket on my master cylinder is almost totally solid. When bleeding the brakes, fluid is leaking out even with the lid screwed down. I would like to find a new one, or make one if needed. What material should be used for the gasket? While talking about the master cylinder, the bolt head for the lid is almost totally stripped. Can I use a regular bolt, or will the brake fluid cause problems?

With my luck, I would get the wrong type of gasket material, and or the wrong type of bolt, and the brake fluid would break down that material of either... or both of them, and ruin the system. LOL

Re: '60 GMC 4x4 Long Fenderside

You'll be fine with standard cork gasket material and any bolt that is the proper length and diameter. I think that bolt is a 1/4-20. There should be a little o-ring that goes on the bolt after you slide it through the lid. That keeps the bolt and lid together and makes things nice.

Re: '60 GMC 4x4 Long Fenderside

Here are some pics of the transfer case and linkages. The transfer case shifter is on the right of the transmission shifter, instead of on the left like all of the other ones I am seeing on here.

I know this was discussed on the site somewhere, I just cannot find it anywhere.

66Gilbert asked for some pictures to see if he could identify what was going on.

A few more.

I guess scraping some grease off would make it easier to see.

Definitely a Rockwell T221 transfer case and all factory shift linkage. This is the first I have seen of a transfer case shift lever on the right side of the transmission shift stick. Possibly a Canadian built truck? Maybe someone else will chime in on this.

Re: '60 GMC 4x4 Long Fenderside

I"m pretty sure that all 60-61ish trucks had the transfer case shifter on the right, then after that they all went to the left. I thought I read this somewhere and it seems to be pretty consistent, although there is a lot of swapping in of later year parts, especially on these 4x4 work trucks.

Re: '60 GMC 4x4 Long Fenderside

Argonaut,

What started this was seeing KroAutomotiveInc's new 1960 GMC. His is on the left like most of the other ones I have seen.

According to the VIN, it was built in Pontiac, MI.

Kro, where was yours built?

When I took the trans hump off (page #4 post #98) it didn't appear to have ever been off, so who knows! LOL This truck is full of mysteries.

Re: '60 GMC 4x4 Long Fenderside

That's cool Cort!

I searched around on here, and no-one talked about a Cape Blue anything, from what I could find.

Interesting. I always thought it was an early (60-61) vs late (62-66) thing, but Kro's truck seems to disprove the theory.

Re: '60 GMC 4x4 Long Fenderside

Kro, if you tell me yours has a low VIN, then I am going to start getting suspicious! LOL

Mine was #46 built. K1002PN1047A According to Jolly's site, they started at 1001.

We are going to have to get these sisters together at some point in the future!

Re: '60 GMC 4x4 Long Fenderside

Yours would be #539 according to the 60-66 GMC site. http://www.6066gmcguy.org/GMC-vin-list-60.html

Your shifter is on the same side as everyone else's. Mine is the oddball.

Re: '60 GMC 4x4 Long Fenderside

I have caught glimpses of a few '64-'66 4x4's around here, but no '60-'63's. Always have my eyes open for them, just never in a spot I can catch them to talk, or get a good look at them! LOL
