N/A

I'm not sure what SAE # the bellhousing is. The engine actually has a broken flywheel/bell housing so it will need to be replaced with the SAE size that will work for my transmission choice. Apparently a lot of these military surplus items are purposely damaged before sale. I dont know exactly why.

I dont know if I'm going to swap transmissions, or just keep the old T98. If I do swap the trans. , it will likely be for a Ford NP-435 w/ 6.69 1st gear. I'm partial to the 435's. A Spicer 3053 5 speed would be cool, but that would probably be just a little too big and bulky to fit this truck.

As far as the front axle goes.. yeah, I'm going to end up with some custom length u-joint shafts eventually. I'll run the tracta joint shafts till I break them or get new ones.

I never saw the finished welds on the front axles, but with some kind of heat treating they will probably work for a while. Its obviously going to be a high torque/low speed 4x4.

This info may help with finding a suitable transmission.

Why do you say the spicer is too big for this truck? You're running some beefy axles, so what's another 100 lbs of transmission?

I havent finished the welding on the inner shaft yet. Once I finish welding it and heat treat it, I'll post up some pics. I'm curious to see how long it will last.

Thanks for the link.

The weight is not really what bothers me with the 3053. It's just the overall size of the unit. It is a big 5 speed. I had to swap out the 3053 in my M35A2 2.5 ton truck once and it is a beastly transmission. I'm not completely ruling it out though..

They all are a pain as far as I am concerned. I just put rubber floor mats over the window sills, run a pipe through the cab and use a come along to hoist the transmissions up now. This is in old trucks that are too high for transmission jacks. I am getting to old to bench press transmissions in place any more. If I don't work smart, my back reminds me for days afterwords.

Made some progress today. I pulled the pass side leaf spring pack so I could acces the 2 stripped threads in the spring perch. I drilled and tapped them for heli-coil thread repairs, painted a few things that needed painting and bolted it back up.

One of my 1/4" to 3/16" brake line adapters was leaking like a sonofabitch when I tried to bleed the system

I pulled the oil filter canister back off to access it (it sits directly between it and the frame rail) and replaced it with a good one. After checking for leaking connections and tightening everything up, I was able to bleed the system.

Me, my brother and my best bud Rick all piled in and took it for a quick test drive a little while ago. We must have looked like the biggest bunch of redneck fawks driving through my neighborhood with no hood, broken windows and practically open exhaust

The test drive went good and the brakes worked pretty good. I need to adjust the rear pads a little bit and then test drive again. The steering is not bad when you're moving, but almost impossible when sitting still. About what I expected.

just finished reading the build, love the truck! I just realized we live close by. I have a full shop up in Conroe if you need a lift for the tranny/engine install, along with a tranny jack (makes life a little easier).

Thanks for the offer.. very cool of you. It will be a little while before I get to the engine/trans swap. I'm going to finish up the drivetrain/axles and concentrate on some of the sheetmetal work first.

What kind of work do you do at your shop? You go out to HMP often?

I used to build allot of custom turbos for high horsepower street cars, then we were doing LSX swaps into everything. Lately i have just been restoring and selling. I kind of got sick of dealing with customers that change their mind every other day and expect me to change everything out without paying for work done already. I have several toyota buildups that i need to do, about to start on a 85 4runner.

Let me know if you need some help on the sheet metal, i am decent with the hammers and dolly!

Suffered a setback with the house, garage and the truck. We may not see him for a while. Hurricane Ike kinda threw a curve ball his direction. great build though, I look in weekly.

I havent done anything on the truck in the last 2 months. I've spent almost every moment I'm in town working on the shop that my friend and I are building. Once it's built, I'll have a great place to store and work on the truck. We should be moving the S-120, my buggy and all my tools and machinery into the shop in the next 2 to 3 weeks.


Shop build

Saw the shop build, I would have a problem storing my stuff away from home.
Just me though, sometimes I just like to go out in the yard with a beer and look my stuff to visualize changes. Keeps the creative thought process alive!
I am usually working on 2 or 3 things at a time though, so the thinking time is actually limited right now.

I like having everything at home also, but this is the best option for me at this point in time. My garage is so crammed with tools and equipment that I can hardly even walk through. I'll have to drive a little ways to work on my stuff, but I'll have more space than I need, 3 phase power for my machine tools, and better security than at the house.

my projects a few miles away at another shop. i will say sometimes its hard to get the ambition to get down there but once your there its hard to leave. And if everything you need is at the shop then you really have no reason to leave. plus the shop does not have the comforts of home a step away so you wont catch yourself sitting on the couch drinking beer.

Fawk the Super Bowl!

It's a nice day out and I'm going to work on the truck instead.

Tried to fire it up yesterday but the battery was dead My fault, I havent started it up in 2 months to charge it. Going to get the brakes adjusted and drive it around the neighborhood a bit.

I'm going to try and get some of the dent in the top of the cab pushed out for now too. This is what it looks like on the inside, right above the drivers head.
