Grendel What's up with this?

Sorry I missed your question on the t-case, looks like you found one.

I plan to build a 1941 Chevy G506 on a MDT chassis with AT4K's.

What u bolts did you use in the front? Do you have specs?

StayAtHomeDad Update? I so want to do this same thing!

02rexwi Very cool build! Keep those pictures coming.

MiniMonster A 36" jackshaft puts the case just about center of the wheelbase, and leaves space for air tanks, unlike the 24" shaft I could have used.


2"x6"x0.250" tube skid plate.


Mock up of skid plate.

DNL2 Very cool, thanks for the updates.

Back Woods Nice work, I like the stance.

MiniMonster Lots of parts had to be moved to make room for the case, including air drier, tanks, exhaust, battery box and some drain fittings.


Rear driveline shortened from 46" to 27"


8" diameter 1710 series driveline flange.

MiniMonster New air brake lines. Side note, parking and service brake chambers appear to be the same on both sides, not mirror image. That means lines have to be crossed on one side to have correct function. Some puzzlement went into figuring that out.


Finally got to drive it home from school. Slow drive, going from 4.33 stock ratio to 5.65 in the AT4000. I didn't have time at school to switch the 53s from Bud wheels to Axletech, so I threw 46s on it to save time.


Rockwell T1138 transfer case lowered into the frame, ready for mounts.

MiniMonster All my pictures are out of order because of Photobucket charging now and moving all my pics to Pirate. Anyway, I'll try and keep pics together.

3"x4"x0.375" Sub-frame tabs to main frame.


Shortening the Freightliner track bar by 4" to clear the frame. Sleeve was slid over and welded in after this pic.



Of course the track bar bracket had to land right on top of the axle breather, so now I have a breather out the side of my bracket.

MiniMonster Couple more pics of the truck at stock height.

MiniMonster Air suspension progress. I built a sub-frame of 3"x4"x0.375" tube to make the rear ride height closer to the front. It's still 2" lower in the rear but close enough for now. I thought about going spring over, but that would lift it about 4" higher than the front.

A few axletechs have a large round flange that looks like the 5 ton flange. Might be worth sending the axletech guy on here a pm.

I also need a Tech 4000 yoke for the rear axle, as large as possible. I'm ok with the stock waffle pattern flange in the front but don't trust it in the back. Stock is 1710 and I want to stay as close to that as possible.

Sorry about the pics, my Photobucket acct is messed up. I'll try and load them again when I get a minute.

khess3217 FYI the pictures aren't working.

In for what seems to be an Awesome build.

MiniMonster Who has yokes for a Rockwell 1138? I need to fit 1710 drivelines to this case, at least for the intermediate and rear.




I also need bushings for the frame mounts. I could build some but maybe you guys have a lead on stock bushings?

MiniMonster Progress!! I've been collecting parts and pieces for almost a year now, so it is pretty cool to see things coming together.





I've been lucky enough to have use of the LBCC Heavy Equipment shop and all of the big tools in it. The truck still has a long way to go, but at least its sitting on a full set of 53s now.

Freightliner tie rod custom machined to fit the 38mm x 1.5 thread of the drag link end. I'll sleeve it before it goes on the road. I had to get the rig out of the shop for spring break so there are several things to clean up before driving.

How much for the case and how much to get it to 97374? Or possibly OK?

Is that the T1138 with 0.73 high range? That ratio would be perfect for my final highway gear.

As far as I can tell only the front clip and cowl are different and look like they would bolt up easily.


I'm still looking for an appropriate T-case, as the Rockwell 226 case I have is to rusty to rebuild.

I have a 97 F250 and the F800 https://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/tow-r...cab-build.html the firewalls are a bit different and the f800 has a large removable doghouse. That being said, Backwoods did exactly what you are referring too. He just had to cut some "donor" metal off of old cab to graft into f250/350 crew cab.
