low blows guys. low blows.


been pretty busy with these hurricanes in the SE, bit hoping stuff slows down to where he can complete it soon. needs some weatherproofing. and sound deadening. but it's pretty good so far. seems to move itself well and the trans is proving to be ok. LU and OD function on switches, but he's already said he wants to move to a stand alone controller. lol. i knew that wouldn't take long.

it runs amazing. had to adjust the tappet cover gasket slightly bc of a leak, but i think it's all good now. and had to barely snug up an injection line bc of fuel leak. but it's good now from what i can tell.

back together. and back at the trans shop to have them install the filter extension and trans temp bung that they didn't install the first time around. so.. once that's done i'll set the idle with the optical tach i ordered, install a 1quart stainless steel overflow tank and hook up some trans switches for OD and LU..

i'm sure i can get it from the builder.

update: she's alive. amazing oil pressure. runs great (according to my dad)

65-70 psi idle.
90ish at rev.

i think my dad is ecstatic

yea. i'm looking forward to hearing it again/seeing the oil pressure come back.

the cam is 'stock' but not to a 12 valve diesel. lol. interested to see how it does myself. i think it'll be awesome. interested to see what kinda mileage we get too. anything over 16-17 will be amazing. guy i know has a 12 valve swapped excursion on 35s with 3.54s and knocks down 24 mph on the hwy..

my dad got the plug up there and took about 3 seconds to put in. last i heard they have the pumped timed at 16.25* and reassembling everything to fire it up.. again.

my dad took the rad core support up so it can be plumbed with the radiator we have along with the IC and intake horn that it'll have on it in the truck.

yes sir. came out of an LP engine so it has alittle different intake and exhaust lift/duration. (apparently cummins makes an LP engine with spark plugs instead of injectors and a distributor run off the cam/crank with fuel injected in to intake horn..?) either way.. he said it would let it breathe alittle better. he's done a couple at school/in his class like that i believe.

20psi is plenty for all the low end components.. which were what was creating the pressure anyway. the pushrods and rockers only see slight movement at their intersections, and it was only for 30 sec. the cam is what is super crucial, and it was a 'used' cam that checked out great when inspected.

but you're absolutely right. the first little bit of a gas motor running esp with a new cam are very important. the guy didn't seem to think that we're were any issues at all with it doing what it did. could and would have been had he not caught it, or knew where to look. we will see..

so.. engine was cranked yesterday. fired right up. ran strong. no leaks.. or so he thought. 

had the oil pressure gauge hooked up. only get 20 at idle. 25 at rev. ran for 30 sec or so. didn't change at all. he shut it down.. sat down and was sick.

looked under the valve covers. not getting oil to a couple rockers. weird.

thought about it.. called another buddy who builds engines. asked if he has any issues like this before. the guy immediately asks who did the machine work. he told him, to which the other builder replied 'last one he did for me, he left the oil journal freeze plug out of the tappet galley' (where push rods go up from cam to rockers)

so.. my guy pulled the pump and tappet cover in about 45 min and found out it was indeed gone. which was just letting oil ooze out of the oil journal and not pushing it up to the rockers OR allowing oil pressure to build.

called cummins by my house this morning and they had a couple. so my dad went to pick them up as well as fuel supply washers to replace the used ones and headed to greensboro to help install and break it in once it's all back together. will know this afternoon if it runs like it should..

somewhere around the front pinion is going to be stamped 60 or 61. and the rear will either be a 71 (3.07 gears) or 70 (3.54-4.10). but the embossed 60/61 will be ~3/4" tall. frame really doesn't look that bad at all. i'm in on the gasser body swap.

i thought they quit with the 3.07 dana 61/71s when they bumped it from a 3 speed auto to 4 speed auto (91.5) and kept the manual 5 speeds. could be wrong. but my guess is dana 60/70 with 3.54s.

i suppose time will tell.. and a good cleaning.

Bro, I'd recommend staying with the crossflow 6bt unit. They seem to work, its larger, greater capacity, more cooling finnage, easily replaced...

they came in front of those engines for a reason. and.. as previously stated, easily available in the aluminum flavor. and all the hoses will work. etc.

if it can be easily done, do it

i know i know about the electronics. but i want to have all the modern day amenities. and a common rail would fit the bill 100%. easily tunable. quieter. remote start. the works.

but.. a nicely polished 12 valve sitting under the hood would be super clean. and awesome. and did i mention the sound?? hahah

so i know this  build is a little ways off yet, but i'm trying to find a direction with it.

one tons. yes.
cummins (either 2nd gen 12 valve ppump or common rail and auto) yes
short bed. yes
leather interior. yes.
35"-37s. yes.

BUT.. the question remains with the front axle/suspension.

do i either
A. wait for a unicorn 79 f350 HP kingpin dana 60 with leaves.
B same axle with long arms and coils
C. Mid 90s F350 ball joint 60 (8x6.5 lugs) with either option A or B
D. stick with basically stock 1 ton chevy (or first gen cummins) PSD dana 60 and leaves (simplest)

i suppose i could always do something silly like 99+ f250/350 front and rear too.. but that just messes up wheel choices i suppose. (just gets away from the 'period' and moves into the 8x170)

leaves wouldn't be terrible.. mainly bc they would be alcans. but.. can't say it wouldn't be cool to have a coil sprung, long arm crew cab square body cummins

motor should be done by next weekend. all the parts are at the builder. he was waiting on main bearings to be swapped out and for valve springs/GSK to come in. he told me he'd either start this weekend or on monday and most likely have it done in 2 days.

my dad got the glass today and couldn't stand it so he drove 30 min to the shop and put them in. i think he's beside himself with the way it looks and with the engine nearly done. going to have to thread a needle with putting it in after my wedding and before i head to NYC and ohio for nearly a month starting early july. but.. i think it's doable. more pics to follow once i get word from the builder.

how's this for an IH Scout II shot?

friend of mine and his son are on a semi cross country trek for the sons HS graduation present in his built 79 scout.

first pics from the builder!

doesn't look like much.. but all the aluminum/steel stuff (injection lines, intake, compressor housing and valve covers) have all been bead blasted clean and clear coated. engine will return to its natural color (cummins beige of course) and i'll keep the hot and cold water lines to the heater core their blue and red. exhaust manifold will be black or course.  a couple of new rubber hoses to clean off the look. i'm giddy. i can't wait to see it back together.
