After reading up on the EGR system and the benefits of a functional EGR system and weighing that against the negatives ,I cleaned the valve it and reinstalled it instead of deleting it . I also had a wonderful time with one of the fuel rail bolts breaking off . had to drill it out and tap it larger .
But she is together and running . No leaks that i could see and idles good . Next i need to build an exhaust system ,or maybe have it done . Video is of the second start and first time moving it after working on it .
After the exhaust i plan on a stage one silverfox AOD valve body ,ford traction lock diff, sway bars , a steering stabilizer shock , lower the rear a bit ,maybe traction bars , new tiers and more body work .And maybe some aluminum wheels . Did i mention that i dislike body work? especially sanding and all the mess it makes so i'll save that for last . Now were is my missing pile of cash ....lol
