After a day of fishing for golden trout, I couldn't resist.

Here's one I miss. IHC B140. This was ordered by the USAEC and delivered to Camp Mercury, Nevada Test Site in 1960(I have a copy of the lineset ticket). Those are 41" tall tires on it and it's not lifted. They are slightly taller tires than stock. Original size was 9.00-18 and those are 9.00-20. It's a dually rear housing but used a special hub to fit the rear as a single.

that thing looks like a tank, and I am sure it was.

I still think the second Gen. Ram have one of the nicest lines for a truck! I used to droll when first saw it back in the days!!

Those are duece-&-a-half wheels & tires.

What does it have for axle gearing?

Yes, those are some surplus tires from a deuce-1/2 but the wheels were actually from an old Dodge "Job Rated" truck. I put those on there because the wheels that were on it when I got it were true split rims. The wheels in the pic are the more conventional split lockring which are still commonly referred to as split rims but really are not.

It uses the same 1.5" lug nuts as the deuce but only five of them(5 on 8 vs the 6 lug of the deuce). R/P gearing is 6.16. Front and rear axles used the same third member. This truck had no lockers, the Detroit No-Spin was an option. The lockouts on the front are the old Dual-Matic out of Longmont CO, three lever version. The smaller ones were two lever, the deuce-1/2 were four lever. This truck was spec'd with two PTO winches on the lineset(A10 King and an A11 King) but I believe only one was installed at the factory. Winch and PTO were long gone by the time I got it.

It is a cool old truck that is now in the hands of a fellow planning a full resto. It was fun to drive though the brakes left a little to be desired as they were not in top condition. It steered with ease despite no power steering. I swapped in an SV345 because the original BD264 had been abused to it's demise though it still ran enough to get the truck up and down the street, leaving a nice anti-mosquito cloud in it's wake.

Yeah, I misspoke on that one: I meant deuce-sized.

6.16/1?! What were there, about 5 teeth on the pinion gear? 5.83's were stock in the M37/43 that I had, and you could hop out of it in compound low & slacker-walk along beside it. I can't imagine 6.16's.

It wouldn't surprise me if those axles were the same type as the M-series if the third members were interchangeable.

That is one heluva neat truck, and it's a shame you got rid of it-- it's something I would love to check out.

I really like old Dodge trucks. I have an M43 I bought 15 years ago and haven't driven it yet. It is still in "someday" limbo. I have four different engine/trans combos to choose from for it. What I don't have is any extra time for it. Someday, someday.

The axles in the B are larger than those in the M37/43. In IHC nomenclature they are an FA50 and RA20. FA=front axle, RA=rear axle. IIRC, both are an Eaton design made by IHC with few changes. The brake drums on the FA50 had "Eaton" cast in.

'tis a shame, but there are lots of great trucks out there and hopefully I have many years ahead with which to get acquainted with some of them.

I'll be-- you learn something new everyday.

Those must be some burly axles.

Good luck with that -43, by the way. I had a Hercules diesel in mine, and that heavy beast may have been the most capable 4-by I've ever driven, and it rode like a Town Car on rough roads.

Looks like a Colt Hottinger '40. I hope it worked out well for you. That guy's porked a lot of folks in the FJ community. When you buy something from him it's best to inspect it very closely.
