You will keep things organized and label everything. You will absolutely forget where everything goes!

Amen! That's the best advice anyone can possibly give. Lots of freezer-style baggies with Sharpie labels and notes - lots of notes.

Back in the day I used to spend a lot of $$$ on polaroid film and bag the photos with the parts/fasteners.

Things are so easy now thanks to digital cameras and cell phones.

The only thing about digital is that it is on the memory card and/or the computer and you have to find it later. So the key is to be as organized about the photos as you are about the parts, and set up folders for each bag or set of bags and sort the pics into the folders daily.

True

But I can get my cell phone or old 790 into a lot tighter places than the Polaroid ever could.
(your hood seal pictures come to mind)
close focus is a lot better and you can't zoom an exposed Polaroid image.

If it were a long term project I would probably dedicate an old device or keep a separate microSD for just that.
I know your iDevices don't have removable memory or micro usb ports, but images could be transferred to their own flashdrive or something, couldn't they?

Waiting for pics, since you how it goes. Pics, or it didn't happen.....

Is your truck an auto, or manual?

I find it rather handy having a windows powered phone, as it works flawlessly with my pc. I have a special folder that I store the pics of my project, both on the pc, and here at FTE.

T-18 and he is going to ZF5.
I guess he is going to have to change the hydraulic line for the internal slave quick connect?

Don't get me wrong, digital is by far the best way to go. It just takes some discipline. I use an old, OLD Nikon 990, which was their 2nd in a series of twist cameras where the lens section twists from the display section. That let's me get places I never could have otherwise, like the hood seal shots. And, that camera has a macro function that is excellent. So, while I have two Nikon DSLR's so could dedicate one to the shop, the old 990 is better by far. You don't need large or high megapixel pictures, just something around 500kb.

As for dedicating a card, you could do that. I have since I have several cards, but I also transfer them to the shop computer and then sort them into folders. That way I can get back to them. However, I also upload many of them to albums on FTE like Engine Teardown; Suspension; Power Steering; etc.

And the iPhone gets used for some things, but rarely as it doesn't have the focus nor flash controls I want. But, in a pinch I use it.

Subscribed.

T18 to ZF5 is pretty straightforward, relocate the crossmember, swap out the hydraulic line, and modify the tunnel cover for the taller shift tower or swap for one from a ZF5 truck. I think the driveshaft also has to be shortened about 2".

I had wanted to convert from C6 to ZF5, but the engine started making serious noise, so I went for a complete engine/trans swap that is a bit different.

When I went from T-19 to ZF the shaft was fine.
Is the T-18 really 2" shorter than the T-19?

No. The T18/T19 and C6 are the same length. The big block/diesel ZF5 are also the same, but from I have read the small block ZF5 and M5OD are around 2" longer.

So the hydraulic clutch system is wrong? How so? This so the first I've heard of this how could that be?

Why would the smallblock have a longer tranny? Whatever I'll just grab a dshaft from a jy.

Pics will probably come up tomorrow as I go shopping for parts!

Those dang front bumper bolts took the longest and were about one of thehardest things I had to get off! Sawzaw helped though!

The hydraulic hose for the internal (concentric) throwout of the Windsor pattern ZF gearbox has a quick release.
It's not the same as the external slave of your T-18.
