Fiberglass hard top, has electric wipers. No leaks through the top. Also has the mil heater. That will replaced with Vintage Air.

I have a set of electric wipers here, too.

I guess we should turn this into a build thread?

It also has a new painless wireing harness or equivelant harness in the box as well as a bunch of little things the seller wanted to talk about forever, but I already forgot everything I was supposed to tell you.

Thanks.

It's a Ron Francis wiring harness. I already had the 2 hour call with him. Holy fawk.

Funny the new fuel tank leaked... he epoxied it, but I may reweld it.

Front spring pad spacing is 36.5" on center. I could stay leaves and use a Ford front 60. The spring hangers on that truck are single sided though.

Sort of wanted to run a late model Super 60s though. Coils and Radius Arms might be a bit much to tackle outside of my shop and before a drive.

A 3 bolt power steering box takes care of the manual steering.

The fuel tanks are a pain in the butt. Easy to fab a new one as it's just a box, but a pain to find a nice original. The filler elbow hose is also a pain to find at times, though I think someone was reproducing it at one time.

The fiberglass tops are the best way to get a hardtop, though you miss out on some of the fun of an M715. I forget the name of the conversion company that made the originals, something with an "R" and something to do with converting military surplus to fight wildfires. Some I have seen were not that great but all seems to have a little bit of leakage issues around the top of the doors.

Speaking of doors, I think I still have a passenger side door for a M715 if anyone needs one.

Hmn:

Super Duty Dana 60 Front Radius Arm Kit 05 Plus - RuffStuff Specialties



M715 Frame width is 34.36" wide. The 2005 Ford SD HP60 I just bought has coil spring buckets at 35.5" center to center. Maybe an offset coil spring mount and move the shocks inside the frame?

Like this: https://www.ruffstuffspecialties.com...og/COILCC.html



Have to fit a pan hard bar, too.


Bought this, a 2005 Ford F350 dually front end:



Anyone know if I can just yank the dually spacers off?

So, it's on.

My son and I will drive/fly out, grab this and drive it back.

He graduates High School this year.

Same sort of run that Pyleit and his father did.

The 350 and T98 stays for now.

It gets power steering, the 2005 Ford SD HP60 front with 4.30 gears, radius arms and F350 coil springs/shocks, a Ford divorced NP205, a Stirling 10.5 and 39" to 42" tires/rims I need to find.

Will probably do the wiring harness.

Probably using all the RuffStuff stuff to mount it up.

We want to hit the Sacremento Rail Road Museum, Eldorado County Museum ( I welded on a Shay locomotive there) and on the way back, the Air Force Museum in Ohio. He wants to get involved in fixing history, so this is a good way to do it.

This truck will get the rust fixed and then clear coated to preserve the paint.

This is relevant to my interests

8.1 EFI swap is easy, I traded my Allison for having the stock harness cut down locally, same 3-5 wire install as a LS. Then I changed my mind and sold the 8.1. Plan was late SM465 with driver drop 208 to Ford KP60 front, all bolts in. Front suspension isn't the weird single shear bullshit, just the rear.

Tanks are available, nice stainless ones too if you have the pocket change. The rubber fuel neck is available as well.

I've got a couple of these pigs stashed away for future projects

This already has the stainless EFI tank on it. Full filler is new.

Stock tank is in the bed of the truck and also in great shape. I have two more tanks here.

Rear is getting new spring hangers to avoid frame cracks.

I've done a few 8.1L swaps. Last one was in a CJ7 on 42's.

I own the 8.1L cheap - will eventually run an 0411 ECM with the Allsion TCM.

Interesting. What is it?

Interchange manual shows 8 on 210MM for the wheel pattern. Also says if you remove the spacers, you end up with a stock SRW witrh 8x170MM.

I guess I can leave the axles as dually and run 20x12 wheels with a little lip.

That's an ambitious project for a cross country trip. At least your skipping NM

I would get ahold of Trevor at wfo, they are just outside of Sacramento in Auburn. He does a lot of the 05+ conversations and may even have a few donor axles in stock.

I wish I wasn't so busy at work, I'd be down to come help. I'm all for a trip like this.

Couple weeks ago was several pallets of axles, but I don’t think are any are built and ready to go except by order. That is your shop for getting this done though.
