Got a little more done yesterday, finally got the front drums off, shoes and drums were grooved into each other, what a whipping. The good news is O'Reilly's had all but a couple of the parts local so with any luck I'll have it ready for a test drive today. On a side note...so far I've put a battery, alternator and voltage regulator on and it's still showing discharge on the alt gauge and at the battery the volt tester is only picking up 12.7 volts...any suggestions?

just for piece of mind have the parts tested. Just because they are new doesn't mean they are good.

Good idea, after I finish the brakes I'll do one last check for bad grounds and broken wires then get the parts validated up

Nice! up
On your charging problem- did you check the bulkhead connector? Seems I remember them being a problem on trucks also.
Missed a chance on a '75 locally. Called about it yesterday right after ad came up and the first guy that showed up bought it. frown
Story of my life- day late and a dollar short. shocked

Definitely clean up the bulkhead. On mine '79 Power Wagon, they looked really bad. I got a finger nail file (aka emory board I believe) and cut it down in width to fit inside everywhere I needed and cleaned all the points. It definitely helped with headlights dimming at idle.

It can be bad when a wheel cylinder leaks out and then everything sits! I had a set of rear drums on an old police car that were like that! I really thought I was going to have to cut one of them off. I finally got it off and did a reverse somersault in the process.

Get a disc brake front end from the spindles out for a 3/4 ton mid 70s Chevy truck, You have to get the correct axel u joint and use the chevy end, and it will all bolt right together.

Probably have to add in a proportioning valve too. with all drum brakes My 72 did not have one....

Well, had to stop on the truck for a week, spent the last week in Philly sitting in a training class... laugh2. Oh well, got back 2am Friday morning and was in the shop by 9am, gave up on the disc brakes for now and completely overhauled the power drum system, shoes, hydraulics, hardware, new drums, new master cylinder, brakes are now bled and it's got an excellent pedal. Changed a leaky freeze plug and and cleaned all the bulkhead connecters and grounds, won't know if the charging issue is fixed until I fill it back up with anti freeze and fire it back up today. Also found out yesterday...the hard way...that a 72 W100 DOES NOT...have 4.5 inch bolt pattern wheels, had a set of nice wheels and tires stacked in the corner that I would use for test driving until I figured out what I wanted to put on the truck permanently...since the truck came with 4 flats...free of charge of course...image my surprise sitting on my backside rotating a wheel endlessly trying to get it on...then grabbing a tape measure and going...oh "S".... work laugh2 Still some tinkering to try and get done today...see if I can find a tire shop open, adjust the emergency brake cable, clean the interior...some more...anybody got any leads on a new rubber floor mat...this ones like crunchy as a potato chip.... up

The 69-74 W100 had a 5 on 5.5" bolt circle. The 80-93 W100/150 also had a 5 on 5.5" bolt circle. The 75-79 trucks were the odd ones with the small 5 on 4.5" bolt circle.

Sorry it didn't fix things for you, but cleaning the bulkhead will serve you well anyhow!
