That's exactly what I had, I got extremely tired of the bump-bump ride for the first 50 miles, not to mention the front two tires were original and in need of replacement. The local tire shop, that would still work on them, quoted me almost $4g to replace just the 20" tires! I bought the rims and new 22.5's for way less than that.Thanks I got some widowmakers on it now
you still own this truck? awesome truck id use it to load trash and gravel. im thinking of taking my c20 dually bed off now and putting a custom flat bed with removable stakes and top so i can haul larger loads of firewood, trash and livestock. i use mine basically for fun, a toy, pulling stumps, yanking stuck vehicles from mud and towing vehicles in my area.Update. I have not posted much. Bought my truck 7 months ago. 91 Topkick 7000 16 ft dump wood bed.366 tbi, 5 speed single axle. The truck had been sitting for 15 years. bed floor rotten (gone) side good. no tailgate. Had the split rings on it with 9.00x 20 tires. The first plan was to go with 10 hole unimounts. Found out would be too expensive. So fount some newer Daytons and 11 r 22.5 tire ( not great). Drained old gas put fresh in. Fired right up. Would not come off idle, found the butterflies stuck. The original plan was to get it driveable and drive it home (120 miles). The last trip up was to do tires and replace rubber brake lines and the steel line that blew out (exterior rust) Got 8 ft of steel line down the frame replaced and 3 rubber lines on rear replaced. Still no decent brakes. Did not tackle the front because of fitting strippping. Plus I think front calipers are frozen or locking up, possible bad master cylinder.
The wife and I talked about it and decided to check on getting it brought home. Find a guy that would do it for 650. So we had it brought home. Get it ready to tow was a bunch of stuff in bed, we had not been able to get the bed to dump. Took the dust cover off the pump control and disconnected the cable dump works cable frozen.
Off idle can here a slight miss
Need to order a shop manual for it.
I do have one question. How do you adjust the power steering belt? I have loosened everything except the bolts in the pump itself.
Also does any have a top for the battery box?

I have a 1976 C65 I've had 14 years. I bought it with a 454 gas, it proved to be a 366 after I had bid at auction Ebay. It had no power, I couldn't adjust timing. On the advice of a mechanic I switched to a rebuilt 427 tall block. It's then I discovered a broken part in the distributor was why I couldn't time it. Mine has a 14' long flatbed or rack dump. I've bought the 90 Top Kick with 10.4 litre turbo diesel & Allison Trans. It soon receives the dump bed.you still own this truck? awesome truck id use it to load trash and gravel. im thinking of taking my c20 dually bed off now and putting a custom flat bed with removable stakes and top so i can haul larger loads of firewood, trash and livestock. i use mine basically for fun, a toy, pulling stumps, yanking stuck vehicles from mud and towing vehicles in my area.
