What size are the links?
Are they temporary?
It might just be the size of the axle and truck that make them look small...

Yeah they are temp. Just 1.5" .120" butt tacked to the tube adapters. The links will be 2" .375" wall in the front and 2" .500" wall in the rear. Before I had .375" all the way around and bent the rears since they are so long (50"). The tubing won't be in at the metal yard till Thursday hence the temp. links...

Any reason you just did not move the diff over and get new inners?

Those boxes look a lot like 406's, are they really that different (just larger overall, but the same basic shape)?

Are the CV's the same??

I'm interested to see how long your pinion conversion holds up. I didn't trust just butt-welding the spline to the plate. I ended up turning down a 5"diam x 4" long chunk of solid stock, then pressing the spline into it. then a couple plug welds and a fillet on the end.

why did you box the entire centersection upper mount instead of just welding it to the houseing?

looking great man. keep it up.

They look just like my 406's from what I can tell. I'd like to know the real parts interchangeability. A U1300L looks like like 406's as well, but people claim they are different.

The outside of the portal looks different than a 406 or early 416. The casting is thicker and the gears are different, I'll dig up some pics tonight...

As far as the pinion, I'm sure it will be fine, I trust my welding... We'll see if I man up to that statement if something happens

Tonight I got off work late and didn't get to the garage till 8:30 so I only got one of the 3 8 lug adapters cut out...





As I said in previous posts they are cut from 1" plate and will attach to the stock mog 6 lug hubs. Once the other two are cut from the plate I will flip it over and fly cut the final .020" off to drop the pieces out then off to the lathe to finish the OD and ID and then there ready to go.

Not sure I follow on the 8-lug adaptors. There must be another part to make? Nice work though, I wish I had some machine tools at home

It was exactly 24 hours and your freaking out already?

Got the other wheel adapter parts cut out last night but they look just like the one I already took pics of... Hopefully shall have tires/wheels on the axle tomorrow.

I'm having an issue getting my calipers now in time for BF so we shall see...

Well hot damn theres progress!

Alright, todays first project was to get the steering ram mounted. The ram I want is out of stock at the moment so I'm reusing my old one that has no problems.

Essentially I took a piece of 1/4" plate and it welds to the diff side mount and then bolts to the other side mount with two 1/2" bolts and the two 7/16" bolts that hold the ram on. So to access the differential I have to remove the ram then remove the two 1/2" bolts and then remove the bolts in the diff then the whole assembly comes off.



The ram is backwards from how it's supposed to mount so I made some spacers out of 3/4" .120" wall DOM which spaces the ram body 1/8" away from the 1/4" plate.



I also mitered the bottom of the diff. side mount to make it more purty like. The hole is obviously for the diff fill plug:



Next was to start on the combination bump stop/shock mounts. Here is the pass. side mount getting started:



I had to bend the back of the rear mount plate to follow the line of the upper link mount. The link mount will be plated in as well:

I used 1/2" shaft collars to space the shock out a bit. Previously I had made mounts that went right against the shocks misalignment spacers which caused the steel to dig into the eye of the shock. This time I learned my lesson:



Then I plated the top with 1/4" for the bump pad then finished with 1/8" up the shock mount bent to fit and luke all fancy like:



Drivers side was essentially the same thing, just didn't have a link mount to tie into so it dies into the tube:



More crappy welds. I do appolagize for the mount to axle tube welds, I had a kink in my hose that I didn't notice which was causing some sporatic wire feeding... Oh well, can't all be perfect:



Here she is in all her glory!





Anyway, tomorrow I shall finish welding everything up front and finish all the little gussets and plating I need to do. Then hopefully get the steering arms on and finished so I can start making some tie rods. My tubing for my links won't be here till Monday now so still waiting on that, checked today but they had nothing in yet.

Also need to make a small guard for the ram still.

Then it's on to the rear!
