Well, that project is done. I got it running, warmed it up good, took it for a test drive, and all is well. I got back to the shop and changed the oil, that way most all of the assembly lube should be washed out now. I even changed the HPOP oil!! I switched to Schaeffers, so wanted to get as much out as I could.

You better take care of that back! You've got a dually conversion coming up, and I don't think I'll be able to swing a trip to South Dakota to help you if you're all crippled up! LOL!! Between your bad back and my three hernias, I don't know if we could get a wheel and tire changed! LOL!!

Probably not, but we'd give it a heck of an effort!!!

I'm going to go to the doc first of the year, unfortunately.

Do you have pics of the York air compressor? Seems like you posted some a long time ago.

Bill, here is my compressor. I'll probably just use these two air tanks for now whenever I do it.





Glenn, its definitely green! I will like it just fine, and I think my motor will too! That's the most important.

What psi will it pump? I guess what I mean is, what psi will you set the pressure switch to cut off? Are you still running it off the alt. pulley?

I think about 150psi. Yes, off the alternator pulley. The double pulley is on. Just got to mount the pump, tanks, and hook everything up. And re-route an IC tube.

I would like to put a PTO unit on mine also. I think it would be nice to have wet lines on the back of the truck to run a dump trailer, log splitter, and maybe even a rollback goose neck trailer. But the air I would like to do like you're doing. What are the alternatives, if any, to running it off the alternator?

I don't think there are any other alternatives using this compressor.

I don't have a need for a pto unit, but I could see where it would be handy. You can put one on the 5 speed, can't you?

Yes. There are block out plates on the ZF where a PTO unit can go. I'd love to have a wet line kit as well Bill. The possibilities are limitless! Think powerstroke Unimog! Lol

I'm gonna do it one of these days. Some of the 1356 t-cases have the plates for PTO too. Most of the '95 and back F350s have the 1356 t-case with PTO capability. This truck has it, my '92 has it and a '95 F350 parts truck had it.

OldWoodsDiesel is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I'd love to get air and hydraulic on my truck as well, so if anyone goes through the work of hooking up hydraulics, be sure to post the heck out of it! As for that York air unit, as I understand it, you have to give up your AC right? Don't think I'd be allowed to do that by the wife :-)

Now. To get this thread somewhat back on topic ;-)

I was thinking about my engine project - since thinking is all I've really had time for lately. If I'm planning on doing head studs and springs, would it not be worth it to just pull the heads and get a good look down inside and at the valve seatsat the same time? If I wasn't doing studs, I could see doing the springs without pulling the heads, but it doesn't seem like ill be really saving much work by leaving the heads in place now - and may potentially miss some internal issues that would be a pain to find out about later - after it's back in the truck.

Any opinions?
