holmes 480 split boom install pics or info


Recommended Posts

does anyone have any old pics / directions / or other stuff to help me speed along a install of a Holmes 480 split boom on a old 73-87 chevy/gmc 1ton ?

 

i got the unit and it was all un-bolted already and i didn't get any pics or measurements . i know the back of the frame needs clipped off a little . and it was on a c40 to c-60 series truck last .

 

thanks to anyone who has some stuff . . . .  i did search youtube and internet a bit but all i got was videos or 440 or 480 units in action or for sale .

Been waiting to talk with wes . . I know he is a busy guy . 

 

Also planning out the pto feed from my np205 transfercase and pto i have . Got to figure out what gear the trans needs to be in and what engine rpm to run at . 

 

Looking for my rear axle i want to use for the DRW . Planning on a hybrid build . I dont want narrow C&C but also dont want the WIDE rear . So by using a g30 van 14ff rear and swap on DRW hubs and brakes i get a med width and will look better under the bed i think .
