  1. Both of you are correct they ran out the parts they had after 87 most were known as R/V chassis as opposed to the C/K trucks same basic thing though ran them to 92 iirc. I cannot say for sure I wasn't in a dealership at that time but I know you could still get the carryover body style of the 98 C/K truck through 2002 in 3/4 or 1 ton only with a 350 or 454, all half ton Silverado after late 98 were LS powered new body style..
  2. 87 was first year fuel inj, 86 was hyd clutch, z-bar bracket bolts to d/s top of frame under column frame should already be drilled for 3/8 bolts.. I've done the swap he's doing been awhile 73-80 are same and 81-87 are slightly modified the front bumper mounts are different, 81-87 uses all same cab mounts where older ones are taller only on rear of cab iirc. There were several small changes to trim, electric etc. the only major change made to the body in that run was the round fuel door went square and the wipers went from under the hood to their own panel along with different fenders
  3. He's right about the brake hose but if you do one I'd do all three rear hoses, hoses are cheap brakes are priceless! Another thing I always check is to make sure the caliper slides move freely and are well lubed especially in the rear, they catch a lot of moisture and debris from the road one tear in the boot and they're stuck. G.M. had a few problems with their electronic brake control modules in the early 00s down here in the salt belt I've seen a lot of a.b.s pump motors stick. I bleed Chevy orange but I gotta give Ford credit they bump the a.b.s. motor every ignition cycle, you Ford guys have prob heard it sounds like an exhale from the LF corner of your super duty. The whole time I worked for the g.m. dealer the pedal feel was an issue with customers, good luck with your sub.
  4. Habit of mine if I see disc brakes I gotta question it?? Not all super m have live hydraulics (SMTAs do) I have a 53 SM that has a belly pump and the battery under the seat, are u building a workhorse or a show tractor?
  5. Is it a super m? If it is should have a c264 cast into the block near the oil filter canister, either that or its one of the handful of straight Ms that got disc brakes the serial # should tell u what it is. Nice looking rig
  6. Awesome collection you have there, those mudflaps are sweet!
  7. Nice find handy little tractors, ive got a sc dad has a 200. I know of a farmall 404 may be for sale
  8. Thanks guys, I gotta admit the serial # pushed that one a little. Right now the plans are free it up go through the engine and leave it in its work clothes.
  9. Welcome, I have one just like it I don't know if it's right but a previous owner told me Clyde was about 28k +or- that's with a 12' blade (too dang much) and 20" pads and canopy.
  10. Heck of a deal you got on a cool setup can't go wrong with a belly mower on an A, I have logged several hours on an A mowing the yard, fence rows, and the depleted fall pasture at dads.. After of course he got tired of raising tobacco and pulled the cultivators off, awesome documentation by the way that's where I usually drop the ball.
