Ah he needs the E-brake got ya.

Its going to be hard without a BOM or at least a year of truck. Worst case is you have the guy behind counter bring out every applacation he has and match them up.

Maybe a wire wheel on the tube where the BOM would be. Its there trust me, no axle was not made without one, how rusted or pitted well thats another question.

it wasn't very rusted, and mike sand blasted the axles already.

it may have been cleaned off in the past though. hard to say with potentially 40 year old axles.

i was so busy on the first page and doing some homework i kept editing my last post and never realized you huys hit page 2. talk about tunnel vision. anyhow i'll know more of what's going on saturday. the guy had a sammy in the garage today getting a header and some other work. we just did some brainstorming and got a plan of attack in place. hopefully we actually turn wrenches this weekend.

that rear was rusted enough around where the u-bolts were that paul isn't happy leaving the tube that thin in those places. we are talking about plating over and trussing the top to ensure it stays straight. it's pretty rusty. it's pitted over an 1/8" deep on the pass side in that location.

That's not too bad. I always recommend a truss when building from a bare housing. No matter the axle.

i have been cruising pirate but the bible only has front axle id's on it.

i'm also finding a mbl300 1 ton for the mlitary dodge that also seems to have this casting number.

i'm still reading as we speak.

first edit:
seems that most all of the 70's 3/4 and 1 tons all used the same rear brake setup. still reading...

second edit:
i think i may be settled on the brake drums. i won;t make any final decisions until i go look for part numbers on the drums themselves. i'd really like to get inside the drum and look at the hardware and numbers on them. if i can get them all to agree that it's a 70's 3/4 or 1 ton dodge then i'll order them up.

well decided to go with the disk conversion after all. rotors, calipers, brackets, and hydro e-brake was all under $250. ... crap! i just realized i forgot the brake pads in that order! lol oh well not needed for fab anyhow.

If there weld on caliper brackets you will need the pads to line up the bracket and then tack it in place.

I figured you would end up with disc's sooner than later. The cost of the drums and trying to figure it all out was maybe a hair more but alot better/cheaper in the long run.
What about the E-brake, or are you no going to install one.

Jason.

they are bolt on brackets. i am going to use a hydraulic ratcheting hand brake for an e-brake. i have been told they are not entirely legal in the pa inspection manual, i'll take my chances. way i see it all i need is a tee in the line running back the frame rail that goes to the hand brake and blammy! instant e-brake.

and yes half the push to go to a disk was the hair i was pulling out finding exactly what drum, wheel cylinder, and brake hardware i needed.
