Re: Dumptruck Dolly

The sleeves for the leaf packs were rusted like this one shown, so I made some new ones out of extra bushings laying around.

Re: Dumptruck Dolly

After water tubing with the kids and their friends, I only got one thing done today regarding Dolly...here I put the front differential on jack stands, in preparation for cleaning, painting and replacing worn parts. It was a small thing, but it felt good as it begins a new stage in the trucks transformation. Hopefully, more to come soon!

Re: Dumptruck Dolly

Today I started test fitting some new parts. Here is a steering stabilizing shock. This piston is supposed to be 4 1/2 inches exposed when it is set initially.

Re: Dumptruck Dolly

I was removing the steering link between the two spindles when something caught my eye… I guess I will not be cleaning this part. The Blue Beast must’ve been in a collision… And now I think back to the welded leaf spring mounts earlier in the build. I’ll have to find something different.

Re: Dumptruck Dolly

Using a flap disk, I begin cleaning the differential… And the tab tells the story, 4.55 gear ratio. Tomorrow I have to crawl underneath Dolly and check what the gear ratio is. I do not recall if there is a tab located there, or not. Could I be so lucky? It would be a fantastic day if these gears matched up. I am not too worried...one way or the other I’ll get it matched up.

Re: Dumptruck Dolly

This is where I left it for the night… I’ll keep plugging away on it tomorrow.
