Uh-Oh...Better get cracking:

Something's fucking happening in my garage finally...

The list of things to do is very long and somewhat distinguished. I have spent most of the year building a chicken coop, dealing with litigation, moving my two boys in with us and getting them prepped for life here, my father passing away, and then normal life.

I think the gas in it is only good for varnish now...

Luckily I bought a nice little bookshelf stereo at a yardsale last weekend for 5.00 and after the wife let me use it for the garage...I have some tunes to keep motivated.

Updates on this shitbox as they occur:

Last night saw me start on yanking the axles for a re-gear to 5:38's.

Replace the duct tape, it looks to be a little old. Maybe use some Gorilla tape, for the structural strength. Just trying to help

So I haves question about my power steering. *I am 94% sure that my pump took a shit on the last run out. *It was making noise and I slowly lost my steering ability. *I had to strong arm it for an afternoon. *I just rebuilt the box and added a ram as well and the system ran fine for a trip.

Today I ordered this power steering pump to bolt inhttp://www.rockauto.com/catalog/moreinfo.php?pk=1786738. *I have a feeling the old pump is the stock unit from the '69 Eldo...

My question is whether you think I should boost it or not. *Before the Hydro Assist I would not have hesitated one bit to mod it. *But I am wondering if I should mess with it...as I have always felt like hod ridding a pump sucks a bit of life out of them... *Here are my current steering specs:

1-1/2" x 8" ram
Tube & fin cooler
Rebuilt J-truck box
Hi-steer
39.5" Iroks
Lock-right

Iroks and Lock-right are new additions this year.

Thoughts on modding the pump?

Did you drill the output valve thingy on the old one?

If you didn't, do so.

Do you have a cooler installed?
I kept frying pumps until I installed a cooler.
Even with the cooler, I carry a spare.

My suggestion would be run it stock, but mod the parts out of the old box. When you get to Naches, if you don't like how it's preforming, throw the modded parts in there one night. I suggest doing the work BEFORE the Crown comes out.

Great suggestion Carl. I like that idea a lot. I think I will do that!

So shit I forgot how heavy a Dana 60 can be...either that or I am just getting fucking old and weak...

So the past two afternoons after work I put on the purple gloves:

As of last night it is truly on jackstands...the big ones and not the ones under the axles...
Name:  getonit6.jpg
Views: 686
Size:  94.3 KB

The shit pile of axles waiting to take over to Rustoleumwhite's for a white-trash gear set up. Going to go from 4.10's to 5.38's and add a Lockright to the front.
Name:  getonit8.jpg
Views: 680
Size:  78.7 KB

Now that the axles are dropped I am going to have my 14 YO help me tackle this stack of rubber. Off will come the 12 year old 36" TSL's and on will go the 39.5" Iroks.
Name:  getonit7.jpg

I am thinking of adding a strip of 1/2" x 1/8" strap to the inner bead-lock flange as an anti-coning ring. The bead on these Iroks is fucking thick. Plus I am thinking I am going to need longer bolts...

Maybe you should just put a 60 in the front while you're at it. I know of a Dodge kinpin 60 for sale...

Ben...O Ben...O Ben...

1. Is it ready to bolt in?
2. Does it or do you have 5.38's for it?
3. Do you accept payments?

I WANT your 60...I NEED your 60.

Especially because of the width.

1. Define 'ready to bolt in'. Its bone stock, spring width is probably a little different. You would need high steer arms.
2. It seems like I do have a set of 5.38s, I'll have to check my warehouse.
3. I'm sure we could work something out.

3. I'm sure we could work something out.
1. Bolt in to me is: brakes, bearings, lockout hubs, etc. all there and it is semi-clean.
2. Understood about the HS arms...which would take away my gas money for Naches
3. If you have 5.38's and made me a deal, I am sure that we could "work something out".
4. I would need to do some other stuff to it as well before it went in.

I take it you haven't had any diggers on the axle yet?

HoS- Glad to see the blue/purple nitrile gloves back in action

I guess it's a little late for some rocker protection on the passengerside? You drive by braille?

Gloves are a required item in my garage. I might be getting greasy one night and having to give a huge sales presentation the next morning. Can't be all rough-neck looking and make the payper.

Going to work on the beadlocks tomorrow afternoon/evening. Every little bit of time from here on out counts. It isn't like I've had a year to work on the thing...
