Re: 1964 GMC 1 Ton Dually build

My fleet side cross sills look exactly like the stepside ones, just wider. A fleet header panel and tailgate might fit

Re: 1964 GMC 1 Ton Dually build

Are you planning on using the ram steering or are you going to swap gear box with square body and captain fab adapter? Also from the picture looks like some pump brackets may be missing.

I am probably going with a square body gear box and captain fab adapter. I think it will be better. Hmmm I thought there may be a bracket missing...do you have a picture of the full assembly so I can contact Dwane?

Re: 1964 GMC 1 Ton Dually build

Dont have a picture stored, but I have one installed on one truck, one in a box in my garage both the old style and one new style installed on another truck. But if you Google a photo there should be a bracket on the back of the pump to the exhaust manifold. Be a day or so to get a real photo

Re: 1964 GMC 1 Ton Dually build

Thanks! I found this picture that shows the rear bracket. I thought there should be one. I will text dwane to see if he has it if not, I am on the lookout for the rear bracket.

You think the square body gear box and capt fab bracket is the way to go?

Re: 1964 GMC 1 Ton Dually build

If you have pictures of how the pump is installed that would be great. I am in no hurry. I am about to start disassembly on the truck...so I have a long way to go, but want all my pieces ready to go. I am going to start cleaning up pulleys and stuff soon.

Re: 1964 GMC 1 Ton Dually build

Use the box, not the ram. I have done several box swaps, way back when before adapters were available I just shimmed with washers, and then tried cpp, but then captain fab works the best. The rams are finicky and hard to get parts and repairs that are reliable

Junkyard boxes go for cheap and dont be scared to replace seals on the box if they leak they are cheap and easy to do

Here are some more pics of the brackets for the pump and a thread on the different brackets.

Re: 1964 GMC 1 Ton Dually build

In for the build. Glad to see some love for the v6. My 64 3/4 ton still has the 305E in it. I opened up a magnum intake and put a 4 barrel carb on mine. Woke it up a bit. If you need any close up pictures on p/s let me know and I'll get them as mine has the original setup.

Good to see you getting some parts gathered! Did you figure out if the fleetside header and tailgate can be used for easy bed widening?

Close up pics would be awesome...I am missing the back bracket on the pump side so I am trying to find one...I am talking to someone about making me one if I can't find it so any help would be great! Thanks!

Yeah parts are coming...about to get a wiring harness to start doing that. I want to get it running in the next month or so...then start working on the rest.

I had high hopes for the fleetside header...but while doing research I realized the fleetside beds are 19" tall and the stepsides are 17"...so they won't work.

Re: 1964 GMC 1 Ton Dually build

OK question for everyone...I am missing the 2 bolts that hold the front bracket on to the PS pump. Anyone know the size and length?

I was going to remove the pulley and see what fit, but easier said than done. The front has a nut on the shaft and I can't figure out how to hold the pulley so it doesn't spin...any words of wisdom to remove this old pulley?

I've gone as far as taking stuff into the hardware store and finding something that worked haha!

If you can get the pulley in a vice and impact the nut loose that'd work. Or if you are nuts like me hold it and try that.

I'll try and get some pictures of that rear bracket for you tomorrow.

Thanks TJ...I thought about putting it in my vice...so far my holding it won't work. haha I'll get it...just have to be smarter than the part!

Re: 1964 GMC 1 Ton Dually build

I may have found a new dually rear end. It is a 14 bolt C&C dually with 4.10 gears. So the width is great at 63.5" WMS to WMS. The price is right at $200. Should I continue to look for 3.73 gears...or do you think the 4.10 are going to be fine?

On another note, my wife may be getting transferred and I am not sure I want to move with a project. So I may get this running and have as many parts as I can then sell it as a project for the next person. Just tough to move a project as far away as we may be moving.

Re: 1964 GMC 1 Ton Dually build

OK, so yesterday was a big day...got the truck turned around from where it has been sitting for 8 months to my "work spot" in the driveway. For some reason I like the hood/engine bay facing my house. Anyway, had a few buddies over yesterday and I said, let's move the truck! So we pushed it out of the driveway did a manual 3 point turn and pushed it back in. Looks so much better this way...LOL Will start disassembly soon.

Before and after...

Re: 1964 GMC 1 Ton Dually build

Played around with a few things today...I was clear coating some other things for work and had some left over so I lightly sanded the cowl extension and clear coated it. I am not planning on doing much if any body work to the truck...it is what it is a dent is a dent and will stay...going to be a good driver.

I also started sand blasting my "new" double groove pulleys...got one done, 2 more to go...trying to decide between black, silver, or red for the pulley color.
