Anyone in Northern Colorado thinking of a 3G swap?

I've got an idea to do a YouTube video and need a volunteer with a Dentside 73-79 (or Bumpside 67-72) that would want the 3G conversion done on their truck while I record the process.

In my opinion, even with tons of diagrams, pics and enough dialog to write a 10 volume book there are still way too many questions concerning the process of swapping the 1G and 3G alternators. A video may or may not help, but I am willing to tape the process, however, I no longer have a Dentside/Bumpside truck available to show the work involved and record the video.

Any takers? I'm not looking for noteriety or Youtube money, just want to help out the Ford "brethren" in their quest for the almighty 3G alternator.

Please respond here or send a PM

Josh

I just did a 2G to 3G swap and it wasn't that bad...sounds like your process is much harder

Yeah the 1G to 3G is somewhat complicated.

I did the 2G to 3G in my 87 Ranger and it was a cinch

Is your truck a black 4X4 or white 2wd? There are quite a few Dentsides in Severance.

Hmmm... and the truck is new to you? I'm not familiar with it then.

I sold my Black 74 F100 in April of 2011.

Yeah, I got it about 3 weeks ago. I also used to work across the street from you at design metal. I had the green/black lifted 98 dodge diesel and then had the white mega cab
