Re: Finally starting my Longhorn 4x4 conversion

Nice Job Ryan. Can't wait to see your custom emblems when they arrive. Let me know what you wind up doing on those factory style 30 emblems. I have looked and looked for some used ones, but no luck for the future crew build. Trevor

Re: Finally starting my Longhorn 4x4 conversion

Thanks guys. Trevor, I'll let you know what I decide to do with them.

1985-GMC, I did get Cheyenne30's and 6 359. The pics were just from another thread of his.

Re: Finally starting my Longhorn 4x4 conversion

Did you happen to measure the 88+ Chevy rims? Mine are burried right now so I cannot measure them, but when I got a flat on my 91 Square Sub, I measured them at 4"back 2.5"front.

Re: Finally starting my Longhorn 4x4 conversion

No progress yet, but I did manage to get some new to me parts. I purchased a front seat from a 2004 dodge, I got a vacuum pump for the engine, I received my new billet emblems, found 2 almost new tires to match the ones on the rear, and got a box of A/C stuff for my friend Mathew. Pics will be coming tomorrow.

Re: Finally starting my Longhorn 4x4 conversion

New-to-me parts are the best! What are you using the vacuum pump for? I had a belt driven vacuum pump on my 96 6.5L to run the waste gate and a cam driven one on the 84 6.2L to run the A/C vacuum solenoids... I'm perplexed!

The vacuum pump drives the power steering pump, and I will be keeping the vacuum assist brakes for now. I haven't made up my mind if I want to do hydraboost yet or not. Pics soon, I haven't had a chance to mess with this stuff. We have been trying to finish up a rebuild on a 07 Dodge. What fun.

Re: Finally starting my Longhorn 4x4 conversion

Here are some pictures of some goodies. I had my wife start painting the new emblems. What do you think? They aren't finished yet.




Here is a pic of the turbo I scored on craigslist. I'm thinking it will go on the Longhorn once I find a different exhaust housing for it.


I also scored a pretty big turbo on ebay tonight and might use this for a primary in towing twins. I'll get pics of it once I get it home.

Re: Finally starting my Longhorn 4x4 conversion

i had to paint some nametags a while back wat they did was wash them in thinner put them down flat still wet and touch the thinner residue in the deep part of the letter with a small modelbrush loaded with paint it filled the letter right up to the edge realy fast like an oilslick intoo al the knooks and crannies , it takes a while longer to dry though
think they used enamel paint

Re: Finally starting my Longhorn 4x4 conversion

Thanks guys. The paint on the emblems is model car paint. I want to make sure I like them painted or not so I figured the model paint would be easy to get off if I change my mind.

Re: Finally starting my Longhorn 4x4 conversion

Well the truck is in the shop and the parts are trickling in. I'm going to get this baby running yet! After looking through another thread, someone posted an engine rpm calculator. If anyone else would like to use it, here it is.
http://www.csgnetwork.com/multirpmcalc.html
I punched in my info, and I was happy with the results. We'll see later if they are very accurate. At 75mph my engine will only be turning 1894 rpm. That should make for some good mileage. I'm going to go look for more parts now.

Re: Finally starting my Longhorn 4x4 conversion

Sounds sweet! Not sure if I've seen, but what are your exhaust plans for this? I'm thinking the truck would deserve stacks for sure.

Unless its a hood stack on a sled truck, stacks on a pickup is just retarded.

That's your opinion. It's almost like me saying everyone from Texas sleeps with their sister. I like stacks on cetrtain trucks. This one won't be getting them at this time. I'm planning on 4" or 5" out behind the right rear tire.

Alright I'll give you that. I know I've seen pickups that look good with stacks I just prefer the pipes to out to the back of the truck.

Re: Finally starting my Longhorn 4x4 conversion

i a tuned diesel these pipes get creazy hot so stacks are a good idea preventing burning some bikers leghair off when he stands too close to the truck , these guys dont apreciate those kindah things
