Some Progress

I did get it to...

very nice

I have enjoyed following your thread. It's amazing how much room is under the hood of these old truck. I like the heat shield for the Cold air intake. Its hard to beat those BHAF.

Thanks Torky

I thought about that and did close both sides of the gauges. I then removed the yellow hose (yes proper 3 hose setup). I held my thumb over the center hole to see if there was any vacuum left. It...

2003 f150 SC 4.6 AC Complicated issue

I have a build thread on here for my 03 Supercrew that originally came with a 4.6. I swapped in a 3.9 Cummins 4bt.

Nice Job

That's a great write up. I've a CC bumpside. I like the manual windows. I may use the power locks though.

progress

I haven't had time and it hasn't been a very high priority to get the f150 rolling. I did check all the plugs/ wires. I'm getting fire to all of the cylinders. Cylinders 1 and 3 are not getting...

It really doesn't seem like it would make that much difference but you can't argue with the test they performed. I'll be putting a coat of black on mine as well.

What year SD dash/seats etc. is that you have in there? Just a word of advice on the rear seats. Unless you create some relieve in the floor (i.e. put a dip in the pan for their feet) it won't be a...

Love the excursion. On the Hunt for a diesel one myself. I too had the 7.3 for 315000 miles. I had a few problems along the way with the fuel pressure control and under valve cover harness, but still...

I like it. I wished I had the king ranch seats for sure. I think the dash will detract from the truck a little for the purest, but I like it overall.

Thanks, I was wondering what the difference was. I have the seats, but I'd had to dig them all out to measure. Hope it all works out for you.

Looks great

Man that 99 intercooler was made for the hole. I know it took a good bit to make it all fit up like factory, but she sure fits nice. Nice find on the tank/tool box combo. I try to stay on the hunt...

Do you know how much difference is in the SD vs. the F150 seats dimensionally?

Yes, I've seen it in a build thread or two. I'm doing mine, but I'm putting a SD floor pan in it. If you've sat in the rear seat, you know how uncomfortable it is with no recess in the floor pan. You...
