Default 1975 500 (should I purchase?)

I am considering the purchase of a Ď75 500.
In the meantime, Iíve ordered a LST to learn what the components are. The seller states it has a 5-speed Eaton (with a PTO that operates a dump) and a 2-speed rear end. I saw that it has a big 5-bolt pattern on the axles, not an 8-bolt pattern I was expecting.
I havenít dealt with Light Line stuff for quite a while as Loadstars are more my speed.
Iíve noticed that parts are readily available for trucks up to Ď73, but rarely beyond.
Will I have problems maintaining the drivetrain on this vehicle?
Thank you for your input.

Hey CCCT, sounds like a good project.
Drive train wise, the axles should not be a big deal, the Eaton 5 speed is easier to source parts for than the IH built Fuller spinoffs. I really donít think youíll have more problems than the C series of trucks.
