A few hours and a 93 Ford Taurus alternator and some wiring, the Dump truck now charges on its own. Then the ignition switch fell apart in my hand. Time for a new one.

New developements.
Ignition switch has been replaced.
Got under it last night to look around, this thing does not have a parking brake system like Im used to seeing.
Apperently its got some kind of transmission brake. Also noticed that this braking system is tied into the bed dump lever assembly linkage. The hydraulic pump pto shaft also has a worn out carrier bearing assembly.
Anybody know of a parts resource for brakes,transmision and dump bed hydraulics. Ive looked online real quick and havent found anything.

A lot of larger tonnage trucks had the drum brake on the tailshaft of the transmission, but there should still be a lever to pull. Check Rock Auto,com, I was surprised to find 3/4 ton brake parts for my '72 GMC there, and I bought drums, wheel cylinder kits, and shoes for my '55 GMC 1/2 ton there. Good prices too.
