cw

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!

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..

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!

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..

http://isearch.avg.com/search?cid={d3920cc9-f64c-4b0a-b798-09813ab52cfd}&mid=ac65539f4a6747d1b179d15a665a6ff4-c328df70f96603edac98a71fc8b63c9641b27324&ds=AVG&v= 11.1.0.12&lang=en&pr=fr&d=2012-05-14%2009%3A12%3A23&sap=tr&q=Candian%20military%20tr ucks%20vintage

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..
