Re: "The Yellow Truck"

Not even sure i would call it a conversion as much as just all brand new parts. The dropmember accepts a range of arms and I chose the 73-87 year from air ride tech. The spindles are 2.5 drop from Western Chassis and the disks are from a factory 75 Chevy truck backrobbed from a junk yard. The disks were chromed and turned along with new bearing and seals. The bags in the front are slam specialties for an extra inch and minimal ballooning.

Re: "The Yellow Truck"

Thanks guys, next steps are clear coating the bell housing, transmission, and rack and pinion, figure out my Z bar situation, and I got some patriot clippsters on the way. I got uncoated ones in case I need to bang on them a little.

Re: "The Yellow Truck"

Patriots are here, hope to get them mocked up today. Here's some pics of the headers. Either going to use a stud pivot for the bell crank or modify a small block piece. Depends on where the headers allow me to place it.

Re: "The Yellow Truck"

Because of the location of the headers, I will have to move the bell crank closer to the cab and create a new receiver for the bell crank and some custom linkage.

No, the chrome shop coats it with something to keep the chrome from sticking. They didn't do it to the front rotors so I simply had them turned at checker to revel the pad contact area.

Re: "The Yellow Truck"

Very nice! Is the trans and bell housing just polished and cleared? Or chrome plated? This will be a sweet looking ride for sure!

Re: "The Yellow Truck"

Okay school's over and now it's back to business. The bellhousing in the pics did not work with my flywheel clutch combo so I had to buy a 460486 and it's going to the chrome shop. Also had to clean up the pilot bushing as after I pressed the bushing the I.D. narrowed (weird, I even tried more than one bushing). So I cleaned it up with a .590 drill bit and some lapping compound (your thoughts?). When this is all bolted up this should complete the drive train. The timing cover just came in from a 9 month backorder from Jegs but it looks great. The cam in the motor is gen V so it will require a retaining plate which I plan to get tomorrow in the a.m. This gets rid of the use of a cam button. Anyway, that's where I'm at.
