    1950 super frame vs. 1952 special frame

    anyone have specs on the 1950 wheel base and frame? I know the rear axle stabilizer bars to torque tube are different. what else? I may build the 1950 frame to slide under my 52.

    I can help as far as the wheelbase, both are 121 1/2". I know the '51 and '52 are virtually identical. I don't have a '50 shop manual, so I can't post more info on it, but as you are aware, the '52 manual is in the Reference area and it has lots of info on that frame.

    The specials body were a about 6 inches narrower than a super. Do not know if that has any effect on the frame.

    yep.

    i was planning to push through to Aumsville Tues night but Santiam was getting snowed on.

    i've got chains but i've never put them on before ... and it's really not something i'm interested in doing in the dark. the driving or the chaining up.

    Sisters may be small but there ain't NOBODY in Brothers. that's almost a ghost town.
