It all started with an early 36 Chevy dually I bought. After I got it home I decided that I needed a complete cab for it. The cab I found needed a lot of work.

The old truck was going to need a lot of work. I searched the internet and found this gem in upstate New York. It needed an engine and transmission but the body was in very good condition.

My first mod was to install brakes. I bought an under the floor brake and clutch master cylinder kit. Yes I said a clutch master cylinder. No automatic for me. I am just a little different (old school). I had to modify the mount in order to center the pedals on the steering column.

The front brake kit said to install the mount so as the caliber would be in the back. Yea that didn't work. It turns out that the steering stop and the shocks are mounted on the back side of the axle. Major interference. I changed the mounts so that the caliper was on the front and it worked fine.

When I went to install the front bearing cap I ran into another problem. The supplied caps were not deep enough nor were the original. With a little ingenuity I took a trailer ball and a vice and extended the original caps.
