just shot final paint last weekend and i haven't got any photo's of that yet. will be installing glass this weekend and all new trim. the truck is starting to really happen. it has been a lot of work and can always do better but will be a good driver. hope my rear disc brake parts are in also and that will be done also. long days and nights on weekends. first coat a little light with gray epoxy primer and then the second coat of kubota has given it a little darker orange like i was wanting. new rubber on everything and door trim. glad you like. old iron with a modern twist.

rear disc brakes on a dana 60.

well working disc brakes. original plan was to do a chevy type conversion rear disc. really wasn't likin having chevy stuff on this truck. so the plan has changed. now have mocked up a dana 60 front rotor and caliper and bracket on this truck from a 1995 f-350, it can be done!! i also had a dana 80 rear axle that has parts with emergency brake. after lookin at all this stuff it can be done also. you have to fab up a plate from axle to caliper bracket but not really a big deal. just time and tedious and its ford parts on a ford. with the dana 60 front rotor and brake caliper system you have no emergency brake. so gonna have to figure out a driveline brake system? ran out of time and headed to north dakota for 2 weeks and no truck time. just order parts.

Sorry for not checkin in but decided to trash my elbow and surgery required. exploded my tricep off my elbow, not fun. trip, spin, splat, ouch!!! 3 1/2 months of my life i will never get back. Back to getting things done. its installed and sitting on the ground. gonna finish welding out this weekend on 2 brackets and looks nice and clean. very pleased! jason assisted and his first 4 link with me. did one on my 77 ford many yrs ago and still love it to this day. the trac bar is the tricky part and getting placed in correct position. measure 10 times and then cut once. DOM tubing is like $20 bucks a foot for 1.5" od tubing. will have pictures once i get it outside next week. Rear disc brakes will be installed this weekend. hoping to have all done by new years with link suspension and brakes upgraded. looks very clean. pictures soon. happy new years to all!! keepin old iron alive one ford at a time.

I'd like some know how about your flywheel spacer. I have both 460 and 400 flywheels at my disposal. I read gary's thread...you show having a spacer of .150 thickness and somewhere in midst of 45 pages you mentioned the flywheel rides a little close to the block, correct? And that .250 thickness may be a little better?-On the flipside..gary had interference issues with the .300 thickness and chopped .125 off the crank side. I figure .200 will do, unless you have anything to add to that. Is your the flywheel aftermarket or factory? Did you run a clutch with more offset at the hub or is it closer to stock style?

flywheel stuff!

the flywheel is from a 460 ford and its the thick flywheel/hyd clutch. The reason i ran the thick flywheel is because of the spline contact from tranny to clutch plate. if you run a factory flywheel 400 and bolt it up the spline contact inside clutch is about maybe 1/8". if you install a 460 hyd thick it will increase your spline contact at clutch to input shaft. Also i built a adapter for 460 flywheel to 400 ford and .150 thickness. Knowing more about this i would go .250 thickness to clear the starter gear and .150ths is the minimum. I had to build a shim to help clear starter gear. this is alot of mock up time and prepping and I'm now satisfied with my setup. next thing is flywheel balance to your flywheel. getting your setup to balance is the next issue. i took mine to a excellent machine shop in billing montana. very pleased with work. I will build another down the road! also a company builds a 6 speed tranny called tranzilla and uses a quicktime bellhousing. simpler setup but expensive! hope i covered everything.

6 speed would be cool! But my old putter bronco doesn't need that. I'd like to machine everything myself, but the mill motor just burned up and the old belt driven lathe doesn't have much gumption in the wet months..there goes my weekend beer money!

photos look great. more progress coming.

I have now installed autofab coil towers/adjustable and waiting on fox shocks. this truck has 13" suspension travel up front. have 14" fox 3.0's on the way. should drive and handle awesome on some dirt roads well. once shocks arrive will be some changes on lower coilspring mounts. will upgrade lower coil spring mounts and shock mounts to work together. work is killing my toy time. In colorado at the moment making some money$$.
