G506 wood bed

Can anyone post photos of the bed floor? And if it's not too much trouble, give the measurements of the width of the boards?

Thanks for the help.

I have a wood and a composite bed... the width of the floor boards seems to be random... some are 10, others are 12, some are 8.

When making a repair, the Battalion Carpenter would simply cut to fit.

I "believe" I have all the widths now.. would just like to see what the orginal bolts and their pattern looked like. . .


Thanks for the help!

I kept a few of the originals that I took off the composite bed.. they were all rusted and most snapped in two.

The only issue I know of is that modern bolts will have casting numbers (head markings to tell you the bolt strength etc.. IIRC.... originals are plain) on the heads. Also the very wide & flatter headed bolts are going to be hard to find. Carriage bolts not a problem.. those wide headed ones... a bit of a problem.

I will scan a page that has the bolts shown.
