Ok members.
I have been off-line for some time now with work as well as dealing with an injury. Also, I bought a new place in the northwest and I'm in the process of moving. I still have the truck and most certainly will finish my project. Sometimes, life gets in the way.
Thanks for all the email comments and advice I have received. More to follow after the move is complete.
S/F,
Crosshairs6

Back online and working on the 1961 GMC 4000. Pulled the carburetor off to rebuild. The carburetor kit from NAPA did not come with enough gaskets so I am waiting on more gaskets to come in the mail.

Started taking off the old wood from the flatbed. I've never seen 2X6 tongue and groove till yesterday removing the bed. There was about 30 pounds of caulk removed as well.

Pulled out center floor-pan today. Great access to linkage and emergency brake. Removed a lot of gunk and emergency brake works great now. I'm thinking I need a new master cylinder but I am having problems locating the specific model with the brake line coming off the front of the master cylinder. There is a lot of surface rust but the truck is solid.

The carburetor gaskets did not come in the mail today. I focused on removing the Fontaine bed.

Cross-members on the Fontaine bed are cracked in too many places to count. I will have to cut it all out and weld in new C-channel.

I didn't realize how much the drive shaft is offset until I removed the truck bed.
