latest newbie

hi everyone!

first of all let me say thank you for letting me join the chapter!

i am 42 years old, i live in fontana, i have been in the army for 26 years and am currently in the national guard.

my current love is my 1986 4x4 f250hd xlt lariat super cab, with a 460, c6, and a np 208 which i just rebuilt.

i removed my rear axle which i am currently rebuilding. i am installing a trutrac with the original ratio of 3.55

she needs a lot of love as the the two previous owners were both business owners and neglected her.

i picked her up for $400.

i am also experimenting with building my own diff cover! lol!

thanks,
dan

Glad to have you here Dan, and thanks for posting up a picture of your project. Looks like a pretty good score for 400 bucks.

Welcome aboard, Dan.

What's the deal with the diff cover? I'm no expert, but I think you are gonna need some bolt holes.

thanks bp!

yeah it's a work in progress. i am going to add a diff temp sensor, a drain plug, and i would like to add an oil cooler with pump but am having a hard time finding a pump that's appropriate for gear oil and isn't insanely expensive.

i will post more pics as i progress.
