Would a 76ish chevy 1-ton have a Dana 60 front, or is it some corporate thing? and how exactly does one I.D. a 60? I can talk about them, but don't have one pictured in my head very well.. This things got huge brake calipers...and it's way bigger than a 44 or chevy 10 bolt front.

King pins bolt in right? I didn't look at that part but my buddy did, and was like, wow, the "ball joints" are bolted in...is that right? I was busy looking at the factory brake controller in the dash....impressive

well, yeah, I guess you could say they are bolted in...

As for the factory break controller, its probably not factory. The old style units actually plumbed into one of your break lines and actually sensed the pressure that way. THey were actually very good units are far as trailer breaking is concerned. The other type would be a cable driven controller that actually has a cable that tighs into the break pedal to sense how far its being pushed down. I don't think that you can still buy the brake line operated type, probably something to do with DOT, however; The cable type are still available, and there are guys that swear by them.

No, this has a slider lever on the dash, right next to the headlight switch. Slides left to right, spring loaded so the default setting is to the left. I don't konw if that's what it is, but John (buddy that was with me) thought it was a brake controller, it was definately from the factory that way.

If you look by the master cylinder I'll bet there's a T for that brake to adjust the pressure. I had an older dually that was set up that way. Damn good trailer brake setup honestly.

Is the handle in a little white box? If it is it is the manual handle to apply the trailer brakes without using the brake pedal. There should also be something under the hood that looks like 2 springs with a funny clamp over it. that is how you adjust the amount of power going to the trailer.
We had those forever on our bigger phone trucks that towed heavy equipment. D.O.T. and voiding manufacturers brake warrenty made us go to the dugutal under the dash unit in a very HD form.. Cool old tech though and was bullet proof....
