firewall is complete, as well as paint

















started reassembly after paint.... were loctite and antiseize bolts and torqueing them... everything is going back on for final front end assembly, once all done we will install the lines and run the electrical for the front











built our secondary bump stops... in case a can or hyraulic bump stop fails up front, don't want the beam going up into the motor, with how low we dropped the motor, it will hit, so we are solid mounting these to the bottom of our frame

radiator mount







hose clamps are freaking expensive like $30 to do my radiator... so i found a place online for half the cost but have to order at least 10 but it works out since i need at least 10, so just cause their not on the radiator does not mean they will not be their lol....







intake

As always get back to AZ and have packages to open up, got the last piece for the trans a locking dipstick.. got the pumps for the tank, now all I need are those expensive connectors and fuel system is done, got a sweet an crescent from -3 to -20 for cheap



Got my goodies from Lee steering




JuanCo wire harness… with a reflash, not the typical chip… if you can afford go that route instead of the chip… can’t thank Juan enough



I needed a little more dom to do underneath, door bars, and spare tire mount.. could not believe the cost… quoted 5.85 from the person I use to always buy from in Santa Ana at $78 for a stick… called the little steel shop out here in AZ, they had two sticks left and oddly there were 19 footers… was still much higher then what I was used to but got them for $4.50…. this has been the worst part about this project.. I originally bought 400 ft and got screwed out of 200 ft, I have probably almost bought that now, maybe a little more with having to fix front…these two sticks should finish it for the 1.75 dom

A couple parts that showed up that my dad installed… the new alternator showed up, I was under the impression that it was not available in thermal coating… thx powermaster for hooking it up…. The fuel rail connection is complete



Pick up our service bed for the f-350.. this was one of those 3w I believe that go for over 12k and we scored it for under a grand




He built the new spare tire mount.. keep it away from thieves and sun damage.. works just like your normal under truck spare tire system




Started working on the f-350… all dynamatted.. getting a new color interior go better with race paint job.. it got new shoes, stereo system, cb, and race radio all going in along with some captains chairs… headers and a bunch more… this thing has 28K original miles

Gutted the f-350 dynamat and everything.. were doing our own upholstery.. complete radio and amps, plus race radio and cb radio..and much more in the


Plumbing on the front is complete…only two lines not run, the fuel pick-up and return (because still fabrication to do under truck)… I totally forgot about the flexplate, so have to push off trans for a few days and had to borrow money for it, so I wouldn’t have to push off for a month… but that 300 was suppose to go towards the driveshaft so….hopefully I can still get everything I need, otherwise wont have money to finish until first week of August….Mostly depends on the driveshaft and all the electrical parts cost… anyways I did not want to risk damaging my 2+K trans with a sheetmetal flexplate, so got the culhane billet one

It may look like some pictures there is rubbing or close to things, but it’s just an illusion, nothing rubs and everything has plenty of room and a lot of line are rigid cause how short they are.. the first two pics are the engine oil, the lines are just sitting there, won’t do the mounting until we have the rest of lines ran for electrical and other stuff down that portion of frame







I forgot I had some -6 lines so I ditch that stainless we had laying around.. and also ran a short line for the drain on the over flow..going to use the same line for my trans vent…fiber braided hose for a vent hose..lol



There was a ridiculous carbon build up… we got the intake runners clean.. here’s a before and after pic of the heads after being soaked in carb cleaner… right now we’re trying to get that plastic intake cleaned…. That’s valuable performance that I can gain by just taking the time to do a little extra work

took advantage of all the stuff we cut off or removed, everything is nicely secured








spent 2 days getting the intake clean.. soaking, scrubbing, carb cleaner, parts cleaner... almost like new..






the tig guy is suppose to be dropping off the radiator tube with all the bungs off at any time

Got the boots on the steering and got the steering all mounted up and torque, that is not paint on the bolt, its anti-seize so it does not freeze up in the sleeves





My last part for the trans should be here tonight, my culhane flexplate… will be jumping on that in the morning…



Pulled the valve covers, for a 130+k the passenger side was really clean, and the driver just had a little bit of build up, clean the covers… try to polish with a dremel did not work well






Driver side




I did not like the black gaskets so I decided to paint them blue



Thank you ford for tapping all the holes on the block, just had to find some tiny bolts out of my big jar of stock bolts, spark plugs are nice and secure, better than the stock clips that crumble, and a lot less


Intake is on and bolted up, tubes are all cut to length and clamped, just need to get some -12 hose to replace that plastic tube

Painted box






Pedal



First shot on dash, this was as far as we could get it to go without cutting the steering adjuster hole, and the amount of space we could move it in if we did cut the hole



This is where it sits now, we cut the hole, it feeds us toast when were hungry… we have about an 1” more we could go in, were going to box the end in.




A new tool we picked up today, almost bought two… can’t beat 99.99 for ½” impact

We have had some setbacks with parts ordered this last few weeks. We have been waiting this whole week for our billet flexplate to get the trans in so we can finish the exhaust and get the dimensions for our driveshaft we need to order. Well it was suppose to ship Monday (after this company order it from the builder the day he was leaving for vacation) and only take a day, by Thursday morning I called found out it didn’t get shipped. He shipped it out and I got it tonight, it was the wrong freaking one, it was a 6 bolt I need an 8 bolt. So now I have to wait for culhane to get back from vacation and then figure out if we can’t exchange and get it shipped directly to me. So that will probably take another week.

We have been doing little things to complete the front end, like undercoating the glass and cleaning the bumper up and getting it ready for paint. We added a layer to the bedsides to get that rubber look, its sole purpose is to reduce spider cracks from rocks, that is why only portion of hood done. Only things we had left to do was install the new resi seals on the front bypasses to fix the leak and install idler and pitman arm pulley along with belt.







The pulley’s were another headache, I found a guy www.stuffforyourranger.com (underdogperformance) who made aluminum idler and tensioner pulley’s. You have tried to find someone else with no luck. Four weeks ago I call him give him my credit card and he said it would ship that Friday. Two Fridays go by so on the following Tuesday I call him, tells me he never shipped it because he could not charge my card because he forgot to renew his Quickbooks. Said if I still wanted it to pay paypal or money order, I told him I think about it. Check rock auto it was 20.00 ship to my door and I knew it be here in 3 days max. Call him back because I was willing to pay 10-20 extra for blue billet ones instead of stock. My stipulations were that he ship it out that day with usps priority and get me delivery confirmation email and I would pay him right then and there on paypal. Friday comes along no email, so I email him saying this is bad business and not happy, I get an email later with him agreeing on bad business and a ups link not usps and says a order has been set up waiting for package to be taken to ups. Next Monday arrives still says same thing, email him again asking what’s the deal. He responds he is closing the website because he can’t put the time into it and he will refund me, a day later and 3 more emails finally get refund. So in the end I order from rock auto and got stock ones today and install.

I order a belt a month ago from rock auto; it was not the right size. They do not have a non ac for my car and then I have a smaller alt and larger power steering pulley. I do a string measurement and exchange at a local store costing me as much additional as would have just to order rock auto one, and this one was now to small.

So that has been the crap I have been going through with parts. As it stands right now I need a belt to finish front besides electrical. We cannot work on the underneath of the truck, so I think we’re just going to work on the dash and rest of cab as much as we can and maybe jump on to the things in the rear. I am hoping these issues do not get us to far behind schedule, the transmission is really holding us up…we don’t want to do all the mounting and have to pull it back down, due to its weight so we want all the parts so it goes in until its time for tear down/maintenance.

We got the bumper and everything up front assembled for the final time, the grey you see is anti-seize will prevent bolts from freezing up in sleeves and also help with rust. Rust is the main reason we painted everything using Rustoleum paint. Don’t have the big bucks to afford powder coating all the time or the time to boil linseed oil.






Third belt was a charm


Built some discs to fill the old door wire harness holes, and then since we didn’t want to weld by the paint, we JB welded them in and then use liquid electrical tape to help with rust and seal it



Today we built a dash mount to that also filled the spot between our fiberglass cowl and made a clean looking dash mount. Instead of using dzus fastener plates welded into our mount, we decided to build our own dzus fastener mount into our dash mount. With just these 4 fasteners the dash is secured nice and rigid. There will be fasteners on the bottom as well as access panels made for the end caps of the dash.
