I've been dreading pulling the front hubs, This truck was in a flood when it was in South Dakota and was in standing water up to the hubcaps for quite some time, you can still see the water line on the Dayton wheels. I expected the wheel bearings to be full of rust and ruined. The front hubcaps are threaded and were on TIGHT. The White front hubcap has an octagonal shape and is 4 inches in diameter. I had no luck sourcing a 4" 8 sided socket, so I had a friend make me a tool. The tool worked well, but I still had to use a 4 foot cheater pipe on my breaker bar to break the hub caps loose, they were that tight. With the spindle nut removed the hubs came off easily and revealed a nasty liquidy goop inside, which surprisingly seems to have preserved the bearings. However the brake drums are pretty rusty and rough looking, I think they will have to be turned. I still need to clean up the brake shoes and see if the linings can be re-used. I was surprised to find the brakes shoes were made by Timken, I did not realize Timken was in the brake business. Here are a few photos.

I'm pretty sure Rockwell Standard-the successor to Timken were definitely in the brake business Jeff-Stopmaster wedge brakes and Cammaster S-cams were a Rockwell product, I think.
