Re: 1967 C-50 Dump truck Project

I had some time to look at the hydro boost units tonight. I was a bit off in my list of units. The 95' was supposed to be an 85' so that makes 2 square body inits and an 03'. The 03' has a flat plate with 4 studs. none of which fit any of the existing fire wall holes. The square body unit fits in 2 holes on my 71' C/10 firewall but does not fit on the Kansas cab. I will need to open up the sides of the existing holes the drill a couple more. The actual hydro boost units look similar except the mounting bracket. I like the 4 stud bracket so I'm not sure which I'll go with.

Re: 1967 C-50 Dump truck Project

Here is the amount of rust on the driver side rocker. Floor is pitted but very solid. I think I may just cut the top portion of the rocker instead of the whole thing.

Re: 1967 C-50 Dump truck Project

Can you replace the rocker with out cutting out the cab corner? The driver side cab corner is solid with zero rust. I'd hate to cut it out.

I also pulled out the Ididit column I have for my 56' chevy truck to see how it would fit. This column is 30" I think a 32'' or a 34'' would fit better. I hope the steering wheel has the same spline count and diameter.

Re: 1967 C-50 Dump truck Project

I didn't get much done today. I did elongate the holes in the firewall so I could mock up the square body hydroboost. I will need to find a set of pedals and the dash bracket from a manual truck. The factory C/70 pedal box doesn't have much room for altering the booster holes. So If anyone has a kine on some pedals and the pedal box (pedal mounts/firewall mount) let me know. I'm going to try the Facebook C/10 groups in Ohio,Ky,and Tenn. I'll try to grab some photos tomorrow.

Re: 1967 C-50 Dump truck Project

There's a guy up the road from me. I'm not sure if he ships or not but he only deals with Chevy trucks, you never know what he might have laying around. His name is Howard and he owns Dundee Truck and Trim in Dundee MI. 734-529-5934

Some how I missed this. I'll look him up. I went out to Indy for a swap meet and got a couple sets of pedals.

Re: 1967 C-50 Dump truck Project

I picked up a couple clutch/brake pedal assemblies from Todd Rusk at the Freeman's swap meet in Indy this past weekend. This photo is the C/10/20/30 assembly right before I took it all apart.

Re: 1967 C-50 Dump truck Project

Here are a couple photos of the stock C/70 pedals and the C/10 pedals swapped onto the C/70 bracket. I need to look for the pivot shaft bushings as mine are about wore out.

Re: 1967 C-50 Dump truck Project

I didn't get many in progress photos of the pedal swap due to being caught up in forward progress. Here are some photos of the hydro boost being mocked up and you can see where I had to drill some extra holes.

Re: 1967 C-50 Dump truck Project

Originally I started to drill the bottom holes in the fire wall where the factory hydroboost holes were but then realized they wouldn't hit the factory C/70 fire wall mount/brace. I'll just weld up the factory H/B holes when I pull everything down for cleaning and paint. I'm also going to make a plate to extend the H/B plate up to the top pedal mount/fire wall brace. That way it'll look more uniform.

Re: 1967 C-50 Dump truck Project

Here are few photos of the factory 6 holes for the pedal mounts/fire wall brace. I ended up using all of these and altered the square body H/B mounts. I still need to address the ripped/missing piece with new metal and also need to drill out the spot welds on the C/10 pedal mount and weld it to the C/70 pedal mount.

Re: 1967 C-50 Dump truck Project

Here are a few photos of the pedals. I will have to weld on a tab on the brake pedal to make sure the factory H/B are will be able to attach and let my brake pedal line up with the clutch pedal. The last photo is the cross bar that holds the pedal stops/bumpers. I didn't get one on this set of pedals so I either need to locate one or build on. It allows the pedals to come back up to a consistent location when both are at rest.

Re: 1967 C-50 Dump truck Project

I also picked up the headlight switch and connector,ignition switch,key, and connector. I'll probably be making my own harness for this truck so I wanted to get a jump on purchasing the dash items.

Re: 1967 C-50 Dump truck Project

I cut open the driver side cowl panel today. It's not terrible but it'll be fun making the new patch panels.

Re: 1967 C-50 Dump truck Project

Nice steady progress I like it! Take lots of pictures when you replace the wheel cylinders, that what I have left next on my c50. I just finished up this hydroboost swap in my 67, came out of a 2007 c5500. Bosch hydro-max with a 2" bore master cylinder, just another option for this watching. Bolted right in no modifications except for the pedal push rod was cut down.
