Thanks!
My pedal was tweaked and binding, spring missing, so she hit the scrap pile fast lol. HAD is a cool set up, seems simple and effiecent but the price is pretty steep. To tell you the truth i am not sure of the cost to door of it because I was geting a few things and never got a reciepe or anything. I think the flange bolt pattern is pretty universal but I cant say for sure..

Got a set of borrowed boggers to try
44x19.5x16 rims are 4.5 bs
I ordered 44x195x15 and rims with 2.75 bs

If I understand right the rims I ordered will stick out a bit wider then these.


I hate the rims lol


Rear should only need minor trimming


Front is going to need ALOT more. going to try trimming the fenders to within a couple inches of the doors.

Seriously, I would run it then decide how much more to trim if any, I think you'd be pretty good as long as your not launching it.

Fender trimming done on the front today. Gained alot of room i think

Tool of choice: makita angle grinder

Took a nice slice outta her.


Next was to hack all the inner fender shit out, what a pain that was. Then pushed the inner fender skin up to the cab brace underneath and sent some self tappers to hold it there.


Then I took a few inches off the front part and I think it should be good to go now. I will double check when I see if the rear needs any trimming.

Small update

Well I got the right front driveshaft from High Angle this time, so threw that on.


Skidplate should work well


Kind of a general view of the underside.



Then I got it on the road with the borrowed tires and bam. Find out the trans wont stay in 3rd gear at all once you let off the gas, so had to do an unexpected rebuild on that. It was out of the burban I parted out for the 454 and the PO said it was a great working tranny, oh well better now then later I guess. Its getting HD clutches, 34 element sprag, TCI reverse manual valve boby with engine breaking and deep pan. They are going to warranty it with my use and application for a year.


My boggers came in too


Tomorrow the trans is getting put back in and hopefully get her driving around the yard again. Supplies for the put-back-together



DIY Beadlocks has been really busy I guess. My rims that were back ordered for a month already arrived there already but my design hasnt been done or anything so it will be a wait for those and a wait to have the big tires on

Well yesterday got the trans put back into the truck and everything hooked up. Thanks to knightrider for the help,way easier to put a th400 in with 2 people Today I am going to add fluid and give it a little test drive. If that goes well I have some Bilstien 5125 11" travel shocks for the rear to put on and a bunch of other little jobs.

Well I put the first 4 litres in the trans then started it and let it run. Then put next 4 litres in and ran it. But it doenst seem like it is taking the oil, the dipstick is showing way overfull?? I don't want to fuck anything up with the new trans so I guess I have to wait till monday and call the trans shop and see what they say.... He figured I would need like 12 litres in it and I only have about 8 now

the TC might not be in all the way and not turning the oil pump

I am sure it is all the way in, with proper gap to flywheel and turns freely.

I was talking to a old muscle car guy today and he said i probably pourred in to fast and it will take a bit of moving the truck around to get the oil throughout the trans. And I know I dont have way to much or too little oil in the trans....

Did you run it through the gears once to see if it brought it down at all? He's right a new 400 will take around 12ish, so something aint right.

I didn't read through all of it. Is your torque converter new? If it is it will take around what you said depending on the size of the converter. If it is used it will not take near as much. You put around 8 quarts in it right. Your pan will hold around 4 of course depends on the pan size.

What is the gap between the flex plate and the converter when it is pushed in the trans?



* Edit. I went back and looked. So you had a new converter then tried to drive it and reused the "new converter" which already had the fluid in it. I would think that you are fine. Suck out the extra that you have I think you are fine. The good thing is that you know the dipstick seal to the trans is good.

The 11" TC had oil in it from the first time around, I dumped out some so it wouldn't spill but there should have been plenty more in there. Deep oil pan on it that supposed to be 2 qts more.

The gap between the tc and plate was about 3/16" and the tc would turn freely.

I am going to get a litre out tomorrow and see if that puts it in the zone.

Thanks for the input!

I just had this problem with my th400. it wouldn't shift through the gears or do anything. I called the guy that built it, and he told me to put two more in it, and still nothing. so he ordered a new valve body for it. I had to pull the transmisioon so he could change the valve body and some spring and ball. but long story short, pull the transmission lines and if they are bone dry, something is very wrong, it's not pumping the fluid.

The guy that built it says with my big convertor it might be to much in there, so when I get a chance I will take one litre out and see what it does. It drives perfect and shifts well so its gotta be pumping i think
