    Junkyards around Pittsburgh

    So Now I've been looking for a new junkyard that has big trucks or atleast some big trucks you know those old yards that have everything. I'm looking for truck parts for power steering/brakes for the deuce.
    The yard I used to get parts from closed (crowsrun) and wagners/rusthook don't have anything big enough. I don't dont remember any big truck last time I was at dawson and I dont want to run all the way to youngstown auto.

    So what other yards are there around town?

    I used to use Truak’s in Delmont but I don’t think you will find anything for a Duce there. Lots of older stuff still around but I don’t know about anything that big? Might be worth a call to see what they have though.

    The parts don't have to be for the deuce, I'm looking more for parts from mid 1980's c40, c60, c80 chevy dump trucks, ford f550's f600's, topkicks/kodiaks.
    I need to jerry rig a power steering pump/ box and a hydro boost brake setup from a large truck. The stock Air boost brakes on the deuce are not filling me with confidence.

    Probably, I don't know what years but a 4700 should have a hydromax brake booster setup and possible even a HF45 power steering box depending on the year.

    A 1994 should have a hydromax booster with possibly the same pump as the power steering, the power steering box might be a Saginaw 710 but is probably a Ross box that is a bigger jerry rig.
    Dave, are you parting one out or see one in a yard somewhere?

    It is a complete truck I just want the box off of it. It ran great when parked but the batteries are dead so I can’t start it. I am going to scrap most of it so you can have any parts you want off of it for free. The catch is that it is up at my camp in somerset county.
