    Yesterday I was on crags list and found an old farm truck , looks like yours, 69 Ford N600 with an 18ft dump box, it has been stored inside and covered with dust.I was thinking it would make a cool car hauler.

    Yes, plan B for me was to get the correct ends on the hose and then a universal and correct length hose in the middle. One of the problems was the inside diameter of the hoses was not the same as OEM for the truck.

    If you can buy an N600 that's in good shape for an honest price, buy it. There seems to be a cult following for these trucks and, unless you grossly overpay is hard to lose money.

    All new wheel cylinders, rebuilt Hydrovac, new master cylinder and all new lines. New brake hoses. Clean up the brakes, shoes and springs and lube underneath correctly. Now I feel better.

    Beautiful truck. I hate to see it modified but to each his own

    I passed up a similar N series when I didn't have the space for it a couple years ago. It was a similar wheelbase but built as a log truck, with the 6 cylinder motor. Not quite as nice as yours but it went to the scrapper. Those trucks were built to work, but made the driver work as well LOL.

    Best of luck on the project.

    Back to the mouse smell issue. Last year a mouse got into the heater box in my skidsteer. I was moving snow in the driveway and smelled wires burning, I drove it back to the garage immediately and opened up the heater to see a nest and some chewed wires ( that we're burning nest material ) I removed all traces of the nest, vacked all debris, sprayed everything you can imagine to clean it out. And this spring/summer, it still smelled. Finally about 3 weeks ago I removed all the hoses where the warm air travels to the vents and replaced them. There was a plastic manifold looking piece that distributed air to different vents. This MUST be where the critters were pissing because after numerous cleaning attempts it still smelled. I had decided that I would buy a new one, because I had the entire system taken apart and was not going to go through that trouble and re assemble a mousy smelling machine. As a last resort, I poured gas inside the plastic manifold and lit it on fire...3 times. Each time the smell diminished just a bit. After the 3rd time... No more smell. I imagine the urine penetrated the plastic and when heated and partially melted, it out gassed and released the smell.

    My seat smell has gone away but there is still a "dankness" to the interior. Since it's only a simple seat with no other upholstery I'll probably just get it reupholstered. You want the interior of a vehicle to be fresh and sweet smelling or at least not smelling like mouse urine.

    Fished the truck split and all the brake work today. Here's a photo.

    Also took the water pump off and will replace all hoses and thermostat. It come off really hard and I had to take the hood off for access.

    Here's a photo of the "fishplate" inner frame piece I had welded to the inside of the frame. It's a frame within a frame. The holes are for bolts and I had 10 holes--maybe 12--punched in each side and I'll drill the other half of the holes ASAP. The plate is maybe 2 1/2' to 3' long and it's not going anywhere.

    This is a more complex project that I first thought because all the parts are interrelated and it's difficult logistically. One thing leads to another sort of thing. Plus, it's hard to find four friends at the same time to fit the pickup bed to the body. Actually it's hard to find four real friends in life but that's another story.

    Anyway, here's the fishplate.

    Here's a photo with the pickup body being test fit. Note there are no rear fenders on yet.
    Ditto on no running boards or fill piece between the bed and running board yet.

    Oh...mouse smell is mostly gone. The concoctions that were sprayed on earlier in the thread did the deed.

    Pretty hard to get into every nook and cranny without taking the whole interior apart... One thing to check if you haven't (and would be much simpler) is the ventilation system. Seems like i remember talking to one of the guys at the Chevy dealership who told me they spray some stuff the lines to get rid if the mildewy scent the a.c. leaves behind. Something like that might do the trick. The truck looks great!!!
