Re: Project: "No Name"

Well, the past few weekends have made progress on my 70 while I've also been helping my old man with his 66. Last weekend, I was able to go watch the new 496 get dyno'd, brought it home, then put it in the hole today.
Bolted up my newly built TH400 and a custom tranny crossmember, I ordered online.

Little by little, shes coming together!

Re: Project: "No Name"

Yeah, I'm considering going ahead and narrowing the rear and putting some bigger meats under there, but I just wanna get it cruising again. It's been torn down for almost 10 years now......

Re: Project: "No Name"

I've got 315/35s on all 4 corners. The rear does have wider tubs, but I almost think that it isn't required at the current size. I have a few extra inches on the inner side too (in part due to the tubs), so you can get a pretty thick tire back there on a fleet without touching the rear.

Of course, it also depends on what suspension you're running out back, and if it's inboard or outboard.

Re: Project: "No Name"

When I tried to install the radiator and electric fans, they didnt fit due to the serpentine kit. Last night, I reverse the fan blades and installed the fans on the front of the radiator to be "push" style instead.

Drop it in the hole and I cant say how perfect the fit was. There was literally 1/8th of an inch on the left and right of the radiator support to spare. Couldnt be happier with the fit and finish!

Re: Project: "No Name"

Placed the order today for all of the plumbing items needed for the build, including: fuel lines, fuel fitting, fuel pump, fuel filter, power steering lines, tranny lines, and radiator hoses. Once those items come in, all I have left to buy is seats and wheels/tires.

Since I got the motor and tranny installed, the truck is now backed into the garage and ready to go on jackstands so we can get the Willwood disc brake kit installed.

A lot of work coming up in the next few weeks!

Re: Project: "No Name"

Installed the radiator hoses, transmission lines, new tranny dipstick and filter, power steering hoses and started on the fuel system. Also, got the truck up on Jack stands so I can tear into the wildwood 5 lig disc brake kit that been in my garage for a year now.

Re: Project: "No Name"

Took off the factory panhard bar, removed the old 6 lug axles, put the new 5 lug Mosers in, installed the new cover and filled up with fresh fluids. Gonna try to get started on the Willwood rear discs tomorrow night.

Brakes look great! What did you decide on meats for the rear?
