how about rewording your question and

describing what vehicle.

if you own a Ford Super Duty 472 cu in engine

you rebuild it and put it on a test stand for

other treadheads to admire!:)

have a nice day!

canadian army deuce & half
 
Sorry about the confusion ,the brake system is poached on the deuce and i was wondering if parts off old school bus dump trucks ,or whatever would work. As stated in the first post we need the whole works . In regards to the 472 this is another project we have on the go a cad engine in a tow truck , this was a mini update only .Sorry for the confusion . Later bake

If I were to have the vin and what is known about who built this vehicle in the first place I may have a fighting chance of finding the right parts for it..Calling it a deuce and half says to me it is a former military truck however those were built by someone under gov contract and share parts with civilian trucks of that same mfr..

ok i will try and find the vin for it & yes to the best of our knowledge it is a 1956 canadian army truck .Apparently there were two types gas & diesel & two types of diesel multi fuel and regular diesel ,ours is the regular .The engine is a big inline six can't find name plate as of yet . The years have taken there toll on the id plates .Ok found a piece of paper vin its a 56 gmc 113506262 ,hopefully that will help ,thanks again . Later bake

here in the USA, we have a tradition of taking the

part off and taking it to the local NAPA store and

putting it on the counter and saying

'got one?'.

will that work up there?

have a nice day!

No Gomer, up here in igloo land, we dont know of such things.......Quit being so cynical and you might get along better in this forum

M/W...You need to tell us the make/model of this truck....Chevy, Ford, whatever...the more info the better...thanks

Thank you very much i apologize for lack of info ,the many layers of army green hides many things. I was looking on a cdn site that showed pictures of the trucks and it appears to be a 56 gmc .The only thing is its supposed to have a gas engine & ours has a big inline diesel 6 in it but i think this was a transplant at some time in its past because there is another set of motor mounts under the hood . The beast has 4 single rear drive tires not duals and it has 6 wheel drive which is kool . I am sorry for lack of more info but i,m giving you the best i can . Thanks fellas later bake

Here are some sites that restore old military vehicles in Canada..

OOps did not quite work as intended but there are a number of collectors and such that know that old military iron and can probably help you with parts..
