Big chevy or GMC Trucks
« on: August 17, 2016, 12:03:51 PM »
  Does anyone on this site have any information on big chevy or GMC trucks.The reason i am asking is i picked up this streight axle that has Huck brakes on it  I had to cut the backing plates open to get at the brake cylinder so i could get the drums off .The King pin diameter on this axle is one and one sixteenth inches.This axle measures 50-1/2 inches king pin to king pin and 26-3/4 spring center to spring center. so it will fit the 32.I have already asked Sid and all he said was he does not deal with large truck axles. I am thinking two ton truck somewhere around 1942 to 1946 and maybe school bus.  vette59jdwl

You might have some luck posting a message on my truck forum ???.

www.3500HD.com

It's not a real busy forum but a specialty forum for the GM 3500HD series trucks which I like and have.  They have disc brakes on all four wheels, straight axle, 10 bolt wheels, 19.5 tires etc.  The king pins on my 3500HD are larger than yours, picture attached.

Might be some old timer on the forum that can help..

I ALSO HAVE A MOR-DROP CALIFORNIA 1940==54 CHEV AXLE THATS 4 1/2" DROP OVER STOCK DROP THATS ALSO BEEN BENT BY THEM TO A TOTAL OF 44" WIDE KING PIN TO KING PIN.

YOU WANT "DOWN IN THE WEEDS  &  IN DA DIRT "AND TIRES INSIDE THE FENDERS, THIS IS IT $300.  NO TRUCK SPINDLES AXLE ONLY.

YOU NEED TO RUN A TALL TIRE WITH THIS FOR GROUND CLEARANCE.
