Wedge brakes work fine if maintained properly. Most aren't, or weren't when they were commonplace.

Well I figure for a hobby truck they the wedges will be just fine.  I have a set of 5 hole aluminum wheels that I feel will just look great on this truck.   Out side of that it needs a starter solenoid, air leaks fixed, and general cleaning up.   Should be a fun truck to run around with.

I think I still have the spare axle that came out of my 1969 IH, they are budd wheel hubs and I believe it is a Rockwell 12k axle although the ID tag is gone.  I’m not familiar  how to identify the part.  I will try to locate them and snap a picture this weekend.

Center point spindles use a totally vertical King Pin and the bearing spacing is different compared to a conventional axle/spindle. 

 We don’t have front brakes.   Shouldn’t be an issue to leave the drums off?

What kind of truck were they on in 1980?

1980 Freightliner C.O.E. . I could have them put in a lathe and turn the drums off of them. instead of pressing the studs out to remove the drums.

Not much of a difference in the way anything drives with a trailer on but it can be a hairy experience when slick and bobtail. The IH must be a tandem truck as 4 wheel brakes were mandated in those years but not on the steer axle till the 1975 model year for all trucks. 1974 and back front brakes were an option on a tandem chassis.

Always liked the center point hubs on a power steering truck as it helped them return to center easily. Particularly if the hydraulic system was "Garrison" as it really didn't have a good RTC unless with center point steering.
