  1. Finally trying to get some time with the truck.  Had the steering box rebuilt.  I was really sloppy and was missing internal parts.  The tie rods, drag links and king pins are bad.  Especially the drag link, I don’t know how it actually stayed together to be honest.  Is the parts interchangeable with the 33 dodge cars.  Rare parts doesn’t list the parts for the 33 HC?

  2. When I rebuilt my 34 rear I used a slide hammer to pull axles and inner bearing races and inner oil seals.  I went to a bearing and seal store and picked up new modern seals and timkin bearings.  My rear has the shims behind the inner race so I installed everything with no shims, used a dial indicator on magnetic base to figure out the end play.  Local sheet metal shop lazered me out the correct shim for each side out of shim stock and I put back together.  The butter grease seal I took apart the original sheet metal one and pressed in a new seal I got from bearing and seal store.  The sheet metal housing I turned to side on a lathe for the proper press fit of the skf seal.  I believe the 33 is basically the same except the 33 shims the brake backing plate for proper axle end play.

  3. I need 19 and 23.  I got the pedal and floorboards in.  I have them adjusted what I believe is correct.  The standard pedal adjustment is 1 1/8" at the top.  Is that to where the throwout bearing bearing first contacts the fingers?  The book says before resistance so that is how I took it.  The issue I have is being 6'4" with long legs, I have a hard time getting my foot on the pedals.  My knee gets stuck between the door and steering wheel.  I need to get them lower if possible 


  4. The thick rubber piece is what I'm guessing should be on the outside of the floor board?  Also I need the clutch release fork lever lock (388055) and spring pull back bracket (600915).  Any ideas where I could find those?


  5. Ok, I have it adjusted that way.  At 6'4" I was hoping I could drop the pedal down to make it easier.  I will install the floor board tomorrow and I assume if the pedal goes to the floor the clutch should be plenty released.  

  6. Finally got my pedal assembly in the car and I have a new clutch and pressure plate assembly in the car.  I have an idea on how to adjust the pedal but I noticed that no matter how high I adjust the pedal, I can push the pedal down until it hits something to stop.  Seems surprising to me.  Also the pedals have the heavy rubber bumper, does that go on the I side or outside of the firewall?
