No plumbing yet but it is quiet! Funny thing is it still shows around 85db (andriod app) but seems way less and is not a slapping ping but a thrumb.

Me be happy,,,,,,,,,,,,,  ;D

5802
Thinking of lines now, possibly some of the new composite stuff. Flex line to a main 3/4 metal feed followed by this easy to run and change stuff.

Rapidair has 1/2 inch kits for under $100. Sure there are other brands.

 

5803
I am wiring it up now. Will need to free stand until I move a thing or 2. Adding a switch and a auto drain I already had.

Mine is regulated the same and has most of the same features, even the drive hub is ballanced.

You have me thinking about the locker now. You say you like it, price is good, traction would be great and there is even a rebate right now!

Kingpin kits for both sides and the Eaton Trutrac, which feels like a solid mass.   

Then a new yoke for a 1350 universal.

Now, onto a few more parts since they all showed up.

So form Randys Ring and Pinion I got 3 boxes. (I think one box was just decals!)

35 spline Yukon outer axles and Yukon Hardcore Locking hubs to match. The Hubs are supposed to be about 1/2 in shallower than other hubs and are built like a tank. Main housing looks all machined from Stainless and the knob looks to be a nice steel casting with just the back cup area and grip area letting you know it is cast as the rest is machined.

I also got bearings and shims for the new carrier along with HD ujoints for the axles.

5807
Hmm, always open to advice. This one?

I have been neglecting mine too. Not the driving, but doing!!

I went through a set of hubs and ball joints, but all will be new again when lifted.

I have copied and pasted this to the tool thread too. But it was a pain!! Not the copying but when I triad to split, it would take me back to the 91 1500 build??

5811
All set up nice and safe (until I move outside) ready to be refilled with oil (drained for laying down) and a more break in after wiring.

Got it for just over 2K and it should easily out perform my 20 year old 5hp Craftsman with an Alum pump.

This is 5hp too, but the motor is about double the size, magnetic starter, starting unloader and rated at 175psi and 17cfm@175psi and just spins at 720 rpm.

5812
I then spun her around (why are they always women??) and set her down.

Lifted it from the top and tied it off to my dmax so it could not fall.

5813
That lift is a 2 ton and has done about everything form tree trunks so the 2 floor lifts I slid into the other garage after stacking and setting on car dollys.

Lifting the 700lb Compressor was childs play.

5814
Not in the tool section, but I need a bigger/better compressor and I wanted to go local so I got this. No not a pallet,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Hooked it up after lifting the front with ramps and airing down the rears. Much easier to pull out flat vs up.

My little HF did a great job!!


5815
 OK, this is from my 2500 swap thread when I got the compressor.

5816
That looks good for my rear 14bt!! I don't really like a locker for its street maners. But then again I have spun a truck all the way around in a corner with a posi.

Ran down to a place called Raycor tools in Modesto yesterday which is like a HF, but REAL hardcore items, much of it American made like the Champion compressor sitting in my truck I have to unload.

Between that, Randy's and taxes I have blown my Wadd for the next month. At least I broke down and saw my old tax guy and he got out for 5K total, not the 15k I was looking at.

Well the truck is going to be dark with little shine so most imperfections will not show. Plus it is going to be around 7ft tall, hard to see up there!

A bolt on may be an option, but I want to keep the 7ft height for parking issues.

Yes, Dana 60 up front. In fact just got a couple boxes of goodies from Randys. Will post these up later when the rest shows up.


Now onto louvers like what Don used. I have seen these custom but like the bolt on look on these. I contacted the same company, Rodslouvers.com, and asked if they can add a louver to the angled 2 row and he sent me the picture below and said he will make them right up!!

5823
Yukon shows a 3.42 ratio.

That one was more for the idea. Looks like 75-100 from some posts. Thats why I'm asking as seeing out there is good, hitting it should be an option.

5826
Got a lot done and it works!!

Are there any plans for a aimable spotlight?? Be a lot easier to aim a light than the whole truck,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
They will however immediately identify the sound of the 12 gage pump action...tactical advantage...

Not over that CTD noise!!!

Electronics and a $800 adapter AND another adapter for the transfer case. It did run through my mind though, fast,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

I thought of going manual with a 5600 also, but adapters and modifying for a clutch is a pain.

Test fit and bolted it back on after a good cleaning and there we go! Just like the factory should have and took about 10 minutes while the pan was off.

Pan off, oil drained and here is the new plug (8mm flange bolt) with a copper washer and a nut to back it.

I flattened it out and used a unibit to open the hole up.

So, being the guy I am I say, lets make it better and add a drain to this thing. Sure the tranny is going to come out with the motor swap, but why not!

Now the 4L80 has a nice little spot MADE for a drain but good ol GM does not use it. So with a punch, we now have a drain hole. Only bad part is the drain is right over the exhaust, oh well,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

During this I also found I had a nagging little drip from the transmission gasket. Tried to tighten it up bu no go so I decided to reinstall the original steel/rubber gasket. Basically it was metal with a rubber coating forming a nice O ring on both sides.

Couple days ago the Tuff Country 6 inch springs showed up. These were made for a 1/2 to 3/4 ton, but not a CTD. They will get an add-a-leaf under the top leaf and be a military wrap. Tate seemed to like the idea since it will keep the lift with the CTD while being cost effective.

Also ordered parts for the D60 front end today from Randys with Tate's help. Got the Eaton Trutrac HD for the front, Yukon extreme locking hubs and 35 spline outer axles with a kingpin rebuild kit.

There are enough subs around for both of you guys, relax.

Think I had a little nesting going on. 1 big wad was in the center with an assortment of shells.

Still need to hit it with some cleaner and a brush but you can see the bottom!!

Then I got outside and started to clean off the vent area. I had blown it off already but that didn't do as much.

Got the cowling off and vacuumed but there was still more.

So off came the windshield wiper access/filter.

So looking at that roof dent it is a little worse than I thought. It even bent the cross-member (if you can call it that) It is on the roof that goodness so even a non Don job won't show bad if at all.

Nice factory wiring and insulation too,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

He used that same removable cross-member setup on a 6bt Blazer he built over on 4btswaps.com.  That's exactly what you need for the Suburban.  Awesome fab work.

Yep, need to order this.

Looking at a clip on NV that I can use with anything or in hand.

You are not even allowed to have a NV scope here in Kali, so a clip on should fill the void.

Looking at something like this;

Very nice Don.

Is there any concern with the main power cable down there in harms way?

Sure you are going to put a KIA Killer bumper there but that could get pinched off with just a little bend the wrong way?

What site did you get those louvers from?

5843
I can see a lot of those in my future!!!

5844
Heck, we all get as jazzed up over tools as the builds!

Darn DOTs.

First thing I thought is how nice it looks, great score!!

I am looking for a new one. Just can't see 2k for a compressor.

In the meantime I just got a HF pump for my old Craftman. Cast to replace 20 year old noisy alum and just $150.
