gijoe4500 So, it has been a few years. But I'm going to start working on this thing again. Was digging through boxes of parts yesterday that are waiting to be installed. Stand by for updates every couple weeks!

My seats are some shitty custom universal seats that a local guy installs at the flea market. They were in the truck when I bought it. Eventually, they will all get replaced with something MUCH nicer. Turns out, the center seat isn't in my way for the shifters. I got the shifters bolted down, and cut the hole cut in the cab floor for the shift cables to run through. But when I crawled underneath to connect them to the np205, I found out my cables were too short. Probably would have been okay if I had mounted everything further back in the cab. No big deal though. I'll just have to swap out my cables.

gijoe4500 Got my shocks installed. At least temporarily. Need to order some material to build some sleeves to go inside the bushings. Not sure where the ones I had ran off to. But not a big deal. Next up, is working on removing the center seat, and installing the triple stick shifter setup.

gijoe4500 Couldn't find my f350 shock mounts this weekend, so I didn't accomplish anything other than getting the garage a little cleaned up. Picked up some new mounts today from the dealership and will be, hopefully, getting at least 1 installed, today.

gijoe4500 Guess I should probably put together a list of what this thing needs to be finished up.

1. Drill last hole for track bar bracket.
2. Adjust track bar to center axle.
3. Mount F350 stock mounts.
4. Bolt in shocks.
5. Check clearance on driveshaft.
6. Install triple stick shifter.
7. Fix leaking doubler.
8. Modify steering as needed.
9. Install extended brake lines.
10. Install new dana 44 lockouts.
11. Top off driveline fluids and diff oil.
12. Flush radiator.
13. Replace fuel filter.
14. Repair A/C.

I really think this is all I am missing right now for the truck to be "finished". There are a few other things I'd like to get to eventually, but this is the primary list.

What size tire and gear? I am planning on a 205 single with 4.10s and 37s. I wonder if I'll eventually need to double up with a ORD box?
Zf5, bw1356, np205, 3.55s, 35s.

gijoe4500 Oh. Also got a stock battery tie down installed. Its not anything all that special, but at least its done.
01-24-2016 06:54 PM
gijoe4500 Updated my list. Little things, but I got the brakes connected and ignition coil replaced. Still not the extended brake lines, but I realized what I was doing wrong with the new calipers and old brake lines for them not to fit. They are super tight, but are good enough now for little things like moving it around the driveway, loading onto a trailer as needed, etc. Test drove it around the block. Apparently the transfer case and doubler are both currently in low. I was maxing out at about 15 mph.
01-23-2016 03:11 PM
gijoe4500 I dug out my SS lines. They will work. Just need to get a tee that will work on the drivers side. My lines are both like what you would find on the passenger side. Any ideas on what size the factory hard lines are? I believe they are 3/16, but I haven't confirmed yet.
01-23-2016 03:08 PM
445 FE Bronco I would call the dudes at Summit for the brake lines, they have always figured out goofy combinations of parts for me. The braided lines definetly give more solid pedal feel and more responsive braking over rubber.
01-23-2016 09:00 AM
gijoe4500 Apparently the 1996 brake lines don't match up with the 1979 brake calipers. So now I will have to move the extended brake lines from my want list to my need list. i'll have to drag them out, and see if they will fit. I haven't looked at them in a long time, so I'm not 100% sure of their application.

IIVIIoonshiner Love the list! I need to make one for mine

Good build so far! Keep it up

So do I. Just need to finish the install though. Not 100% sure where I want to mount them in the cab yet. Going to have to try some different spots and see what I like most.

gijoe4500 Got the 205 back in. Built and installed 1410 rear driveshaft (only cost me $20 and about 2 hours of my time). Replaced the starter solenoid and battery, and the truck fired right up.

Drove the truck yesterday. Even though it was only 2 feet to move it over in the driveway a little bit. Going to go over the truck and put a checklist together of all the little things it needs to finish it up.

So far: (updated 1/24/2016)

Needs
Oil change
Top off fluids (purchased)
steering castle nuts and cotter pins
Drill & install last 2 track bar bracket bolts
Adjust track bar to get axle centered
shorten drag link
Steering alignment
Ball joints
Grease wheel bearings
Install front brakes (purchased)
New lockout hubs (purchased)
Mount shock towers (purchased)
Install front shocks (hopefully they fit)
Flip u-joint in front driveshaft that is installed backwards
Drill and install last bolt on each radius arm bracket
Remove side step on drivers side
Design & build 1356 shifter cable bracket
Install shifters (purchased)
Build & install np205 support (purchased)
Modify transmission crossmember for front driveshaft clearance
Bolt down seats in cab

Wants
Install shackle flip (purchased)
Install extended shackle (purchased)
Install extended brake lines (purchased)
Design & build gas tank skid plate
Design & build new bumpers
Design & build rock sliders
Find & fix slow A/C leak
Rebuild extra steering box
Replace entire power steering system to fix all the leaks (Saginaw pump, rebuilt box, new lines. Its leaking EVERYWHERE)
Fix leak between transmission and doubler (slow leak so not super worried right now)
Start chasing down every other leak this thing seems to have

I'm sure there are still more things, but this is all I can think up right now, without actually having hands on, on the truck.
