Because my plow truck (a 1985 GMC K2500) has quite literally rotted away. It’s far and away the rustiest vehicle I’ve ever personally seen. The picture doesn’t truly tell the tale. With nearly 99% of that rust/rot happening before I got it. I’ve decided to get my M1009 back on the road and throw the plow on it for the few times a year it snows by me. But before I send the plow truck to the scrap yard. I’m gonna pull some parts, mostly the SM465/NP208, pedal assembly, steering column, and associated manual tranny bits as well as some of the glass and universal squarebody GM parts. I’ve always wanted to manual swap a CUCV. But I’d also like to pull the 3/4 ton axles out of the plow truck and throw them in the M1009. They are 3.73 a geared 10bolt and a 14bolt semi floater with the oversized brakes because the plow truck also has the camper special package. 90% of the swap is pretty straight forward. I’m not worried about that. My main question is will the M1009 master work with the bigger brakes on the new axles? Or should I look into swapping to a M1008 master cylinder? There was an issue with the brakes which was the main reason I stoped driving the M1009 in the first place and I think it’s likely the master. So to swap one or the other on now is nothing I likely wouldn’t have done anyway. Thanks for any input.
