I'm guessing you mean the 2 leaf springs I removed? They are diesel springs. Bronco graveyard has them new for $295. I'd take $150 for the ones I have. The bushings are good, and the springs are in good shape.

Awesome. When I first saw you talking about using the old sedan, I was thinking this was going to be the build for that rat rod in Petersen's some time ago.

Love the old IH trucks.

ThanksI am waiting on my 3/4'' reamer to show up in the mail so that I can ream the bushing sleeve on my springs to accept a 3/4'' bolt. I am also heading out to pickup a parts truck, which will supply the rear axle today. I did a clutch job and transmission for the parts truck. We'll count that as a freebie

I have been fighting with the super duty spring bushing sleeves. I got them drilled out to 3/4'' tonight, I have the springs hanging with the offset shackles, I have the parts truck in the yard, and best of all, I have a brand new baby daughter that was born on the 10th. I will try to get some pics gathered tomorrow.

Edit: Oh yeah, I forgot, I think I am going to use a different cab........Don't worry, it is still Ol' Skool

New plan is a different cab. I found a cab that I like better, and is in better shape. I don't even know what it is. I'm pretty sure it is a late 30's to early 40's Ford. I really should be building something that can fit the entire family. I might put a bench seat in the 79 Ford so that I can fit 3 in that, then 2 can fit in Ol' Skool. Now I need a trailer big enough to fit both rigs on....

Here are a few pics. Progress has been slow due to being so busy. I am going to need to remove some of the inner lip of the frame so that the shackles can swing freely. This will then weaken the frame, to fix this, I am going to build a crossmember out of 1/4'' plate that will tie each side of the frame toghether, it will then be notched for the shackles. I will then box the frame where the shackles are also. If you guys can think of a better solution, I am all ears.

I modified the front end so that the superduty springs would work.

On it's own weight....sort of

BTW, does anyone know what motor mounts I will need for the 429 to bolt in? This frame was set up for a 7.3 IDI originally. If all else fails I will just fab some out of poly bushings...Here is a pic of the engine crossmember for reference.

Congrats on the kiddo!

As for the motor mounts....I would GUESS that year of truck came with a 460, those are the ones I would try first.

Well here is what I came up with for the shackles. I will box the frame in that area. I will also add some gussets to the sleeve.

I got the rear axle and and springs that I will be using removed from the parts truck tonight.

[IMG][/IMG]

Got the front suspension buttoned up, sans the frame boxing. I want to be able to cycle the suspension before I box it in, I might need to do a little more notching.

I wanna say regular 80-96 460 mounts will work with the same plates that the diesels used. I seem to remember a cut frame half back at my folk's place that has the engine cradle plates like the ones in your picture stamped 460/7.3. Should be simple drop in.

The truck that the frame half came from was a '91 F-250 IDI if I remember correctly.

I think I would have just added a spacer between the spring eye and the inner shackle to push it to the inside of the frame so it doesnt have go through the frame. Then the bushing sleeve in the frame could be longer so when you box the frame it will put it in double shear.

Good idea. What was the application for the poly bushing?

Dr Danger...That's good news!

Huff...everything is in double sheer, the shackles are set up just like any other application, except they go through the frame.

JTR...These are the ones I used

No what I meant was that where your tube goes through the frame, and its welded, even though its typical for it to only be attached to 1 wall of the frame because of it being a C channel. But if you boxed the frame the tube could be supported by 2 walls. No big deal
Carry on!
