Re: Rear brake upgrade: 11” to 13”

LMAO. Ass transplant! I gotta register there. Nice 14B. I gotta ask, where in the hell does the Oreo come into play? Does it help calibrate the dial indicator

I didn't read it all of the way through. Do you like the ARB? Ive got a Gov Loc. It hasn't given me any problems but if it were to go, I was looking at either ARB or an OX Locker type setup. I have a "thing" about things locking up when Im not expecting it.

like I mentioned in that thread….my pal Bill needs to be motivated with food. Got to keep treats in front of him like a dog to keep him focused

The verdict is still out on the ARB as the project is far from complete. I just got the axle under it yesterday afternoon and still need to set up the pinion angle and shock arrangement. I haven’t even gotten a compressor or air tank or even started laying out the front Bilstein 7100 shock layout yet. Got a long ways to go but I have until June when Desert Trip 2017 is booked.



The G-Van axle looks wider...My eye micrometer says about 1.5” on each side

Re: Rear brake upgrade: 11” to 13”

Funny how you say that its wider. Does it even out with the front?

I had no clue that my old 60 was nearly 3 inches narrower than the front until I got the 14B home and found it was actually 5 inches wider than the 60. After the initial freak out subsided, I realized that it actually lined up the front / rear track a little better. 3/4" wider in the rear on each side.

I keep thinking that maybe if I keep some Oreos around, that the kids may help out a little more.... realistically though, Id end up needing an assplant

Cant wait to hear how the ARB works for you. If anyone would use it like its supposed to be used, it would be you.

Keep up the good work! Looks great!

Re: Rear brake upgrade: 11” to 13”

I'm going the other way, from 13 to 11 inch drums. I'd rather lose the weight than carry around a capability I'll never use. I'm swapping in a 14FF/dana 60 combo from a cucv into my 85 3/4 ton.

My only question is regarding the wheel cylinders. Are they different diameter/capacity and if so, does it affect the stock master cylinder?

Thanks for sharing the info Larry.

Mike
