Here's a question... My 1949 Canadian built GMC truck has the factory plate riveted to the door sill; the door handles and the door latches are push button style (1952-1958) in the catalogs. The 1949 style catches will not fit the existing door sills, nor will the latches fit in the door.

Do you think Canada was ahead of the USA in going to the push button doors?

Hi. I just joined gmc group. I am building a 58 3/4 ton pu. I am planning on turning it into a 56 (fenders, hood and grill) I have a 4-71 Detroit diesel, a 5 spd with a 4spd aux box. Am planning on making it look stock, small hubcaps and all. Just getting started on project so a couple of years are ahead. will be parts hunting.

So I shredded the u-joint that connects the drive shaft to my rear axle yesterday. I was lucky and it didn't pierce the gas tank when it came apart. So I got a new one and put it all back to gather. And Ive checked it several times and everything seems perfect but when I get to 40 it starts to vibrate the truck nothing radical just noticable feeling. It gets to its worst at 50 then starts minimizing again. The rear connection did have some chunks of metal missing but nothing to cause a failure but could it have made the piece unbalanced overall giving it a vibration effect to the truck?  

Im just worried of it coming apart at higher speeds and tearing the gas tank open which will cause a fire quickly.

Hey guys I got a question. Cummins has a badge commemorating every 100,000 miles it has on it. What I want is similiar badges for my 5.7 Liter Vortec motor  (which is way better than any cummins and doesnt need any badge to prove it but I want one anyways). My problem is no one makes this at least not that I can find so does anyone know who can make something like this for me without it costing me a limb?

I'm not sure, but you might be able to use a steering shaft from a jeep cherokee. I know they work on newer OBS Chevy trucks
