Re: The Snortin' bull

Mounted up new dual needle air gauges I received from bagriders. After mock up of several different and common gas tanks for these trucks I chose to modify and use a first generation Ford Mustang gas tank.Using a Stewart And Warner adapter plate for a universal 0 to 30 ohm sender for the stock guage.And modifying the original sender to be only a pickup tube for fuel.

Re: The Snortin' bull

Plumbed in air gauge's.Routing the little line's are something to watch what the they can rub on and protect them.I know some people don't like this set up and would go for full Accuair controlled though this is a budget project and a bit old school. >> Noted that now the Accuiar vu4 has pressure on both side's of the solenoid's it is not bleeding down.This drove me crazy .There where no leak's and the truck would drop overnite. Now it stay's pumped up.

Re: The Snortin' bull

Wired in the lockup release and the dual circuit stop lamp switch and got it mounted in. This is needed for the 700r4 lockup circuit.The cardboard box is the only left over part's from the start of the project.The truck was stripped for the most part.

Re: The Snortin' bull

Maybe I missed it, but are you using your factory idler arm? What center steering section are you using? What year power steering box too?

Thanks, Wade

Re: The Snortin' bull
