Thank you, yes, it has a Buda. Will look around for those books.Old Branham's Automotive books generally have serial numbers by year. They also have pictures of the serial number location on the truck. You can find these on the internet if you look around. I would guess the truck your friend has was built in the late teens. If by chance it had a Buda engine, it would be pre-1919. Internal gear rear axles were used into the twenties. Keep us posted. Steve
This is great information! He will be so happy, thank you so much!Try this link for a 1920 Branhams Automotive Reference book . Republic starts on page 282.

Great! will do that! Thank you again!Once you've ID'd the year and model, for pix you might try SuperJeff---Jeff L, who runs the "What Am I??" truck ID guessing forum on justoldtrucks...
Jeff has an extensive, if not monumental, collection of old truck books, pix etc, and may have something helpful...
After doing some looking I finally found my pictures of my Fuller Transmission when we overhauled it. We had to make a thrust bearing and some cork seals for the shafts.
Thank you Sir.Not experienced on Republic but Buick multiple disc clutches look similar. I think it is on a splined shaft and should just pull off. Should being the word here. once off the splines there will be a few nuts around the edge and the rear plate will come loose. DO THIS IN A PRESS OR YOUR DRILL PRESS or something as there will be a large coil spring inside. Once the cover plate and spring are out it comes apart plate by plate.
Yes would love them Rick, it seems with this old truck any information is a blessing! Thank you!I found 2 of the photos of the truck, but it says Federal, not Republic. But when I compare the photos the suspension looks the same. Are we talking about the same truck? I have 1 more photo I am trying to find of that truck, but I haven't found it yet in my ancestor's archives. Do you still want to my photos?
Troy thanks for the additional pictures, everything helps here. Yes I will post a vid when he gets it running!Dan,
We didn't disassemble the clutch because it looked to be good shape and not stuck. I am glad that I could help out, can't wait to see it running and driving! I have also attached some more pictures from disassembly.
