Welcome from one xnewbie to another! Sounds like a real beast you got there! I also just acquired a one '57 TranStar 3E14 1 ton, 1 owner with only 36,800 actual miles on it. That truck will be a great vehicle for my grandson (12) and me to turn wrenches on. Those one tons are real beasts! This is a great site to get information on your Stude! Some very knowledgeable (and nice) folks on this site. I am sure one of the older site guys will get back to you soon. Frank in Germany handles the site membership listings,
Welcome aboard, and remember, on this site, the dumb question is the one that is not asked.
