It will be less work to swap your body (with the clutch setup) and engine than to fight getting a (I'm assuming TTB) setup into a 2wd frame. Transmission/T-case/driveline will be the biggest...

You should be good. My stock height 86 F350 clears 37s with no rubbing.

Any of the springs from that era will ride stiff vs the 99-04 SD springs, but you need to modify the distance of your...

If you have the radiator out and the front of the engine exposed, I absolutely would. Better to do it now and prevent any future headaches and downtime.

Also don't forget the SCA!:-X22

Could always save a fortune and run Military surplus tires (36" or 37"). They take a 16.5" wheel, and can get a set shipped for around $700 IIRC (Granted, I haven't checked in a bit).

I've been...

Compression test won't tell you where the pressure is going. Run a leak down test if you have an air compressor. At most it will cost is a set of valve cover gaskets. Yank the valve covers, loosen...

Not spinning fast enough can be batteries, cables or the starter itself. If it sounds like a gasser V8 turning over, it's too slow.

As said before, check for voltage at the GPs when they're...

Small piece of tie wire with a hook bent in the end and you'll fish them right out.

Love that body style, especially in 4wd. I pulled about 18mpg out of my 6.9 NA on the highway, but that was a while back.

That is not a 79 Dana 44 due to the drum brakes.

100Dollerman is basically a big dirt lot with some storage buildings. I just drove out there (while visiting SoCal) and talked to the kid running the forklift. $500 flat and had 5 tires loaded up. ...

I've been running the 37" Goodyear Military OZ tires for years now on my stock height 86 F350. Tiny bit of the front fender got trimmed off (previous owner had smashed that bit up offroading with...

OP, if you have a meter, pop the wires off and OHM your glow plugs to ground, it will quickly tell you if any have burned out. Only have to lose a couple on an older engine for it to not fire.

I checked mine with an IR thermometer, and shows close to 70 degrees, so after it's running for a bit you should be able to reach up and feel the heat.

You're lucky yours just stopped working;...

I just switched to manual GPs on my 86 (12v spade style). On the older models it would be easy to just hook the controller back up to cycle and also have the switch.

Just ran an "add-a-fuse" to a...

My truck came with a water separator from who knows what installed (filter is for a Detroit). No heater on it, and haven't had any issues starting in the winter.

Just make sure to drain it...
