    I have a chance to buy a 1986 C 70 that has a 10' flatbed on it. It is set up to be made into a dump. The bed sits in frame brackets on the front and is on pins (to dump) on the back. Anyone have detailed instruction with pics of where to mount the cylinder and the brackets? It has a belt driven pump to mount and all the rest of the pieces to make it dump but I need to know what I am getting into.Truck is priced to good to pass up.

    Need to know a few details to help you, what brand of hoist and model number, how much over hang from the center of the hinge pins to the rear of the box.
