    Disc Brake Engineering Thread

    It depends on the drum setup you are comparing. I just know that my disc setup put the OE setup to shame - my truck stops like my 2011 F350, maybe better. Are there other drums that perform as well and are cheaper/easier? Probably.

    Chevy/Ford Body on deuce frame??

    They ask for a VIN, make, and model. Pretty much means the cab determines how it's registered.

    Disc Brake Engineering Thread

    With regard to the question of whether or not the OE deuce MC can be used to run disc calipers - even if it can and has the capacity and pressure capability, if I was to do it again, I would still swap in a modern two-chamber MC. The added cost is not in the MC, but in the brake booster...

    Disc Brake Engineering Thread

    I was wrong. I was remembering that the rearmost chamber actually went to the front circuit on most disc/drum setups - I was mis-remembering that the front chamber was the smaller, thus feeding the rear. Thanks for taking the time to point out that I was wrong. Made your day I'm sure - happy...

    Axle wrap with a bobbed deuce?

    Why are we doing this? - because of axle wrap. Why do we have axle wrap? - because the springs bend. Where do the springs bend? - where they attach to the axle. Therefore, the closer you get to the spring/axle point, the closer you get to a 'neutral' point where the links won't do much of...

    Those are looking good.

    5.9 Cummins, NV4500, Hydro-boost, and Disc Brakes

    1600s are the big 53" tires that I wanted to run.

    5.9 Cummins, NV4500, Hydro-boost, and Disc Brakes

    I wanted 1600s, and you can't fit them on a stock deuce without doing a lot of work to the rear suspension. Also, the biggest benefit is overall size - maneuverability is a good bit better being 3' shorter in length and shorter wheelbase. However, the rest of the value is in aesthetics - if...

    5.9 Cummins, NV4500, Hydro-boost, and Disc Brakes

    I've been thinking about it. Besides the usual desire to do the work cleaner next time (I always intend to do perfectionist things like running all wires perfectly and nicely loomed but it never actually happens as clean), I don't know that I would do much differently. The engine is perfect...

    oh man, that's an awesome question. Let me think on that for the night.

    Advice on using a truck tractor (M931 etc) for towing on a farm

    For that kind of weight and service, seems like others have found the 916/920s to be better suited.

    Where to find differential lockers?

    Why in king-all-f*** does it matter what I do for a living? You have a background where you should know how to classify a locking differential as such and you don't. I'm glad you can put gear boxes together - does that make you a subject matter expert in all things geared? Sorry - is gear box...

    Where to find differential lockers?

    This is simply not true. So you're saying the ARB air locker, mechanically shifted lockers like the Ox-Locker, numerous electronically actuated eLockers, and all the new electronically actuated lockers from the light truck and Jeep OEMs are not actually lockers because they don't lock and...
