Hi. Still taking an inventory of and detailing what I have. First thing on truck I want to do is 'pressure-up' the brake system. I am having discrepancies involving the front and rear flex-hoses. It has become difficult at best to get info - even from internet, regarding part numbers and specs. I should mention, though, that the truck is (or should be) a W-200 model although owner swears it is a 100 with the 200 running-gear (with 8 studs on each wheel). There are (100) 'call-outs' but that doesn't mean much - to me at least. Shouldn't ALL 3/4-tons have the 8-stud wheels? Anyway, I am researching the (flex) hoses and there is much info on the Raybestos site. I have tried various combos (2wd/4wd/100/200) to find the longest hoses available. On this truck, the front hoses attach to side of frame rail (left-side below brass block) and then drop down and fit solidly into wheel cyl. The part I was given is too short. Also, the shocks are not attached and there is nothing inside engine compartment, so the vehicle is likely sitting significantly higher than a 'driver'. I will soon fit the upper shock-t0-frame bracket and measure distance from 'pin to pin'. Then, I will check listings for the extended shock dimension - ie. upper limit of travel, so that I can calculate how much higher the body will potentially rise - until shock is extended, thus limiting any further upward travel, and corresponding travel limit of the flex hose. Hope someone can follow my method of logic. But, having said this much, I will get to the point of this first topic question. I need others with the 'sixties' generation of Dodge or Fargo trucks - ANY MODELS - to get underneath each and every one to examine and measure (his or her) front flex hoses. I want to know how each is attached to frame side and to wheel side and what is total length, within 1/4", of the FLEXIBLE (rubber) portion. The ones I've seen listed, so far, range from about 16 to 23 inches (over-all) length, but obtaining such hoses is an adventure all to itself. Last week I was looking at (very sad) '66? W-300 (duallies in rear) flat-deck and it was very 'grubby' in the front wheel areas. One thing that caught my eye was the extra bracket fastened to steering knuckle, about 5 inches inboard of the wheel cylinder, that incorporated an 'adaptor' pipe (like the regular metal brake tubing) and allowed use of that much shorter of flex hose length. Most of the pictures and specs. of the various flex-hoses display common ends (thread patterns) but this (W-300) hose would have to be unique as far as the (brake side) fitting goes. The rear flex hose should not be any concern because the fittings are same as the front and length is not as critical. SECOND question is about the (manual) steering box. Does anyone know if there is a 'rebuild' kit available - with (hopefully) seals, bearings and (cross-shaft) bushing? Thanks, and I do love to type.
