78 4x4 build

Hello all,

this is my 78 150 custom I picked up last weekend



this is my first build thread, i figure i should have enough time to document it since i plan on spreading the work out, unlike my last project.



The new truck has a straight six with a one barrel motocraft sitting in front of a 4 speed
its supposedly a 1983 engine rebuilt about 30xxxx miles ago.PO put it in within the past year when the 400 that was in it **** the bed

I have my doubts, it ran yesterday after new fluids and sounded good. today however it wouldn't start, and was making a horrible racket

Thankfully the built 390 from my 76 is gonna be swapped in once i get the rest of the work done.


so far the plan is to strip it to bare bones, and start with a clean por 15 chassis.

this is gonna be a long term project that is going to be defined a lot by the budget but the good news is that Ill plenty of work to do before i have to go spend money and i Already have a decent pile of parts to work through the suspension and brakes.

Ill post more pictures tomorrow I'm gonna spend the day drooling over my 4x4 and investigating the noisy 300

I look forward to this thread as i have always used these forums as a resource but haven't participated to much, hope to change that

Looking good! Jealous of the 4x4 and the new shop as well.
