Re: "Geronimo" 54' 3100 LS built in PA

4-17 Been swamped lately. But if all goes well will have some cool stuff to report soon. I am getting that COE just waiting on shipping.

Boxed in most the rear frame. Mounted the fuel pump. I welded nuts to the backside of plates so the pump will bolt to the frame. I built the little skit plate thing just for a little extra security. I will have hardline routed for the fuel line.

I then tossed bed on to check clearances and to start the fuel filler. I will have to either move my fuel tank xmembers or cut the xmember on the bed. Right now bed is too high and unlevel bc its hitting the fuel tank xmembers. I think I'll just section out the xmember on the bed as I want the fuel tank up as high as possible. Gotta get the sending unit and route the lines to make sure I got enough clearance.

COE Extra protection for any install is a good thing as long as you can still work on the item when the truck is together.

Hey 99,
What size tubing and also what rubber bushings did you use for your motor mounts?
Sorry if it has already been asked.
Thanks

Re: "Geronimo" 54' 3100 LS built in PA

no sweat. I got the bushings from thorbros, they are 2" OD I believe, came with bushings and sleeve. I then used about 3" tubing can't recall at the moment. 1/4 wall I do believe. I had to trim the edges of the bushings with a die grinder just a bit. If you make your own mount that bolts to the block, you could make it to size better. I used the stock mount and modified it, the width was just a tad bit tight.

Thank you for the info. Do you have to TIG them? I only have a mig welder.

Re: "Geronimo" 54' 3100 LS built in PA

no mig is just fine. as long as you have atleast a 140 amp welder you should be fine. Id recommend tacking everything first real good. Then when you final weld get the bushings out if you can. Grease them up first so they come out easier. If you weld them while they are in, they start to melt a little bit. You can do it both ways, but the first way is best.

For sure take the bushings out first, if they start to melt or burn you can wreck them real fast.
