    I heard from Kenneth, the guy with the '50 GMC 3/4 ton "trailer" a few minutes ago. Here is what he said:

    "I am in Bowling Green, KY at the moment. Going to see the Corvettes tomorrow and grand daughter wants to see the ducks at the Peabody in Memphis day after tomorrow. Probably take two days to drive home from there. But you know where my junk is at my house and the gate isn't locked. It is a trailer made out of a 3/4 ton."

    I'll go by tomorrow and pull the part.

    Just spent almost 3 hours trying to get the brake drum off. Have not succeeded, YET. Trailer has overload springs which are keeping me from backing off the brake shoe adjuster for the forward shoe. Owner (is in Tennessee and won't be home until Thursday) says to "just torch it off". I don't know how to drive a torch. It'll be a few days before I can get back at it. Supposed to be rainy tomorrow through Thursday.

    WOW, so sorry bout that!! Certainly, appreciate your time and effort. We for sure will patiently wait.
    Seems like everything he works on gets delayed, so it's becoming the Norm. Lol

    He had hopefully, a seat lined up from out west, but that fell through today since UPS won't ship it.

    Since your the GO TO...Help..do you know where he could find one!? Lol

    Thanks, for all your help.

    Ms. Davis wrote : "Lol, I'm just a woman that knows nothing about trucks."

    You're very wrong there Ms. Davis = you know and understand how important this is to your betrothed .

    Good to hear the good folks here are still helping out, I got so much help with parts when my 1949 3100 series shop truck needed bits and bobs .

    It's God's honest truth Ms. Davis .

    I was married for just under 15 years to a woman who told me she was jealous of my trucks, cars and Motocycles, I still don't ken why .

    I don't drink, smoke, etc., I work and play and take care of my family .

    My Sweet understands this and so I'm very happy .

    She knows nothing about old machines and things but she doesn't understand they're important to me .

    You may not believe it but this is a hard thing to find, such a woman .
