Searching for Parts

Post by JerryB4 » Thu Jan 07, 2021 6:07 pm

Hi all,
Been a while, but working on my 42 G506 again, have purchased parts from Vehicles of Victory in past but can't seem to get a response from them, does anyone know if they are still around? if not, a source for G506 parts, brake shoes, knuckle seals, Etc?
Thanks, Jerryt

Jerry,

For brake shoes I would suggest that you source a local rebuilder. There are typically still old school businesses that rebuild brakes and clutch disks. Ask a local truck fleet mechanic and will (should) know of a source.

For the knuckles, look for M-211 seals. They are often more obtainable and they fit the Chevy banjo axle. I think Memphis still has them.

Look anywhere else you can for other parts. There is no one-stop store.

Paul,
Thanks for the response and info.
I also need to replace the front axel outer seals and with the M-211 crossing over I can accomplish.

Jerry,

The wheel hub seals for the G506 do not interchange with the M211, either front or rear axle. There are some specific G506 wheel hub seals on ebay.
