So recently Iíve been looking to swap from my factory 3:08ís to 3:55ís to help my old 300 turn my 33ís a little easier. So cruising around carpart.com I see a 94 F150 at a yard here in town (the kind that wonít let you wander around). As Iím scrolling through the pictures and notice the axle code on the door tag is ďH92Ē designating 3:55ís with front and rear LSDís. I immediately called them and asked if the axles were still under it and they said the rear is gone but we still have the front. I told them to pull it and Iíd be by today to pick it up.
I got there and figured out that when they pulled it, they didnít want to do much disassembly. So Iím now the proud owner of the front 1/4 of an F150 frame

Who the Heck was driving that Bronco? Johnny Blaze?
I think it also has power locks, grab those, and the metal interior door handles, much better than the '87-and-up plastic ones.

My wife is constantly on me about getting rid of my 'crap' in the garage.
I can't even work on my Comet because I have a D60, a Sterling, and a D44 solid and some TTB beams sitting behind it. I'm gridlocked in my own garage.

needs those window switch bezels...
I had forgotten about potentially the BIGGEST find of my last trip. It was raining, so I had my phone packed away.
It was a 78-91 style of center console, with FACTORY DEEP cup holders. They were molded in, just like normal, but about 2" deep! It was in an 80s supercab pickup. I've got a tuffy so I didnt need it. And I cant be hoarding too many parts at the moment... nowhere to put em. I still have that D60 in the back of my van.

Junkyard fine for anyone in Maryland Chesapeake Bay Area. My brother-in-law sent me these pictures see if there's anything I wanted and I thought I'd share. If anyone's interested I can ask him the exact location I think it's the junkyard in Harve De Grace Maryland. I'm hoping he can go back pull the seats look to see if there's a steering wheel and the emblems and that rear deflector but the front fenders look good for anyone needs front fenders.

|Handy_andy_cv64||Oh, yeah, that ugly SOB. I call those RVs the "Speculum." You can get one of those air movers for the horns off Amazon, a complete install kit. If the hose is Y'd before their attachment to the horns, you can pull the Y off, and attach the long hose to each one, test them separately. Even with one's breath pressure, they are loud!|

Well, after a few hits with the old impact, I got the yoke off the jeep transfer case. Since I also pulled a rear flange off a 95 bronco, I compared the two. The splines on the jeep front output are larger than the bronco rear, meaning I probably won't be able to use it on my bronco transfer case. I read somewhere earlier that you could use a bronco rear flange on the front to get a double cardan on the front.

|BigBlue 94||Looks to be an Onan 3.0RV Genset, which from my little research, is a great little unit and rebuildable.|
|09-14-2019 01:12 PM|
Not sure if you're aware, but those Onan generators are built by Cummins. They are about the best generators you can get. I would ask them what they want for it, before touching it. I'd gladly pay 200 bucks to pull that puppy if it works.
Double cardon front driveshafts usually only come on solid front axle trucks. Was it an iron case or non-ferrous?

By the time I got to the camper, I'd already been there for about an hour, and didn't really feel like trying to get the York.
On my tour yesterday, I saw a bronco transmission/transfer case in the engine pile. I figured I'd get the flange output in case I ever wanted to convert the F150 into a Bronco one. I also pulled the case apart to get the entire output shaft that goes with it, but didn't have any snap ring pliers to get it off. So I stashed it all, plus the one half of the driveshaft in an old van (hopefully to separate and get later).
Then I spent about 30 minutes standing around while some random guy talked my ear off about all the old ford trucks nearby, and how any of them would be nice to have, even though he's a chevy guy.
On the way out, I spotted some broken transfer case that I couldn't immediately recognize that had a double cardan joint on the front driveshaft. Since it was broken, I couldn't keep the shaft from spinning to get the yolk unbolted, so I took the whole thing to the front. $10. Not bad considering I don't know what its out of or if it will work on my transfer case.

If you can't see the name, it says Itasca Spectrum. ???
I got the horns, and lying down under the truck, I pulled on the hose that fed them. It came off in my hand from I don't know where. Didn't feel like spending a load of time underneath it looking for where it came from.
I did see a big propane or CNG tank on the driver's side. On the passenger side, behind a door I pried open was this:
Not sure if it would be worth trying to get out, if it works, or what they'd charge me if I brought it up front.

|Handy_andy_cv64||We need a pic of the motorhome so we can ID the rig. If it had air brakes, you'd see an air compressor on it also. But I'm willing to bet there's no air tank, just a stand-alone air mover that blows the horns. They don't need pressure to blow, just volume.|

Went back again today to look at the bigger trucks and see if I could find a serpentine york. No luck. I did find a similar air compressor as the one I found on the industrial 300. This one was on a cat diesel in a ford 8000.
I also found this weird 70s/80s motorhome. Not the classic GM motorhome with the Toronado V8, but it was powered by a GM engine. It had a York 210 with a dual V-belt setup.
Its a partial 'cab over' design, like a van, so it will be a chore to remove it if I decide I need it. But, its been under a hood the whole time as opposed to the other York 210 thats on a 5cyl Mercedes diesel on the other side of the yard.
One other thing that got me more interested were these horns
I reached around back to find the nuts/bolts that were holding them on to find that they are air powered. I followed the tube under the vehicle, but gave up when I decided I'd probably dirty up my work clothes crawling underneath. I'll certainly find the source of compressed air on this motorhome tomorrow.
