    Its now on to the trinkets that hold everthing together, piece by piece they become rust free. You do have to get creative how you attack this stuff and at some point it is ready for assembly. The axles did get new u-joint since where out and could had been original.

    Now on to getting the f-superduty leafs in place, hanging the axle and installing the knuckles. I went with the spring eliminator for the kingpins sice seemed like a weak point.

    I trimed one of the d50 shilds to fit since better of the two avilable and may get new ones when ever I do the hub bearings. Then rinse and repeat on the hubs before install, now its starting to become hole again.

    Now with the engine on a stand its the best time to investige, there was one broken bolt. The gaskets where stuck to the heads good but had issues.

    [​IMG]

    Im running out of time to get this done and she has burned a hole in my wallet, so is going together as is. In my rush I did not ration out the special sauce to booth end of the studs, so used anti sneeze but should had gone get my ptfe compound. Went to torquing the studs at 40, 60, 80, 110, 130. On the 3rd at 130 got a shap so backed off to 110.

    Now the engine can get dressed back up.

    Now on to getting the linkage and brakes on so she can stop floating it the air. I went with 4in longer line in the front and got 6in longer for rear.

    The caliper have phenolic piston for like 90+, so take care blowing them out. If you dont pack enough pad in the caliper and the piston can move to quick, they will easly shatter. I upgraded one to the metal pistons for now and the other will be done when pads are replaced.

    I have also got marine boat lift battery tray installed on the frame. Im going to go with 2 agm h6 or h7 batterys here as aposed to in the bay. 2 h8 can fit on this tray but that would put them a bit close for confort.

    This is where Im at so far, need to find funds to get the last few parts and need find them as well. I hope the cold dose not slow stuff down to much and dont think any more painting is going to be done.

    Wow,fantastic report and progress! I like the color schemes too, it's a unique approach but looks sharp when you put it all together like that! Keep us in the loop as it comes together!

    Ran to a hydraulic shop yesterday, thats after spending hours rummaging through catalogs to make a list. They did not have exactly what I want but got stuff that will do, ordered more from else where. They did not have 37* JIC/AN fitting to push-loc, so have to deal with some evil 47* sae.

    [​IMG]

    Got this power steering reservoir sometime ago off ebay and is what Im going to use, this has a filter inside. I latter found a mid 2000s topkick/kodiak has a smaller plastic one with a filter. This should be enough fluid that I should not need a cooler.

    [​IMG]

    I also have got the power steering pump installed. This reservoir on the pump is off a late 60s bbc and I think 80s gm idi is the same. Will post more on this at a latter time.

    The bumper has been bugging me with all the rock chips and have a step for it I picked at some point. It wormed up some so had modivation to punch the holes and deal with the visable side.

    [​IMG]


    Since this was the only viable pace to have this hung, had to waste some tape.

    [​IMG]

    This is with it on the bumper and will get screews for it latter

    [​IMG]


    I also have trimed the ears off the bumper and used some bailing wire to reattach the air dam.

    With more fittings in hand, progress can continue with sorting out fuel.

    [​IMG]


    Getting the selector valve out is messy and this is was what I did to give myself some time to think.

    [​IMG]


    Now is on to getting the filter head sorted out and getting the fuel pump installed. These are two 33811 filters and one I got a long time ago, will get a 33377 and 33337 later on. Also ignore the reach around that occured.

    Did some running around to find some ring and battery terminals. Yes would had been better if I ordered some military type battery terminals but Im just winging it at moment.

    [​IMG]


    With terminals in hand can go about making runs of cables.

    [​IMG]


    Bmws and a few others are a good source of used double ought cable and this is a run i grabed one the times I was at the yard, this and what I had is what I used.

    This is a jump post from a 2000s chevy truck, a dmax has a better one but non to be found.

    Block ground is from scraps.

    [​IMG]


    I chose agence one used and one new h6, so went with two new h7 agm. With this all in order the angry pixies can flow free to the engine.

    Now on to trying to sort out the pressure seed to the hydroboost, was going to splice some ole used lines I had sitting but that fail do to how hard and brittle they where.

    :bail

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]



    So was on to plan b, where I got a 1ft line with compreshion fittings. Will get fancy high pressure hose and fitting at a later date, for now this cheap fix will do.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Past me did not grab the brake pedal off a f-superduty, so had to make something work. I drilled for a 9/16 grade 8 bolt and took it to someone to weld it in place.

    [​IMG]


    While at this I opened a can of worms and :fan:but now know need to find more parts soon down the road.:frustrate

    [​IMG]




    As seen above did also get the oil cooler rebuilt but it was camera shy. Being freezing out, it was harder than should had been. Used jack to press it with the other end under the frame, is what I came up with to get it done.

    Also was digging through boxes and managed to find the linkage brackets and finished up the fuel lines. Was thinking to dobble cross the return off the injectors but never got the second, so not doing that.
