    Well I had the truck towed to the shop today, getting a new crush sleeve put in the 14 bolt ff and getting the D60 reshimmed. I got new yokes...after I had the axles rebuilt back in May... /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif, so now I got to dump some more money into the truck. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif I am going to bust my ass to get the truck back together within the next two weeks, my set date is Oct 1st. All of the annoying little things have been taken care of, now I just need to install all of the "bolt in" items. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif Maybe I will have a wrenching day at my place, I'll supply the tool's & food, you guys supply the hand's & muscle.

    List of things to be road worthy.
    1. Finish off Doubler crossmember.
    2. Install front driveshaft.
    3. Reangle rear pinion.
    4. Install rear driveshaft.
    5. Hook up brakes lines and bleed brakes.
    6. Hookup hydroassist lines and bleed steering system.
    7. Install seats
    8. Install Art Carr shifter.
    9. Install Doubler shifter's.
    10. Fill tranny & tcases with fluid.
    11. Install front clip, radiator, and wire harness.
    12. Put some gas in the tank and turn the key...I hope. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif


    And here she is on her way to the shop.

    I don't have a tow rig and the TH400, 5.13's, and 42's are a bad highway combo. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif If I had a tow rig...I would be there in a second.

    There are some shady things going on at work lately, so I am going to wait it out and see if I get canned or promoted. If I get promoted I might buy a new truck or buy a newer used truck. If I get canned, than I will buy a big block for my 1 ton dump and just tow with that.

    The truck is still in the shop, going to call tomorrow and see what the hell is going on, once I get it back I am going to have a wrench fest to get it back together. I hope I can get it back tomorrow or Wednesday, going to be hella nice the rest of the week.
