Are you asking about a C70 series Chevrolet medium duty truck?

The heaviest I've ever seen in a 70 is 8500lbs. They were quite common around here with either a 366 gas, 350 gas, or the occasional 427 high block truck engine.

replacing one that's twisted or broken? Used to straighten a lot of wracked frames in those trucks. Too light for dump work but farmers sure used and abused them.

It should be a ladder frame type assembly. They are strong is kept loaded envenly. It was the off center dumping that would put them down in a hurry. Sticking grain was a big contibutor to this. Being stuck in a field loaded and yanked out by a tractor was another.
If the steer axle width is not too wide for your application it will work fine.
