Worked on getting the intercooler mounted this weekend and the radiator will have brackets that will come off the same tube. Still need to make little gussets and mount a few other things to the fenders which I think I should be able to have done by Wednesday night hopefully.
Finally got the radiator mounted up. It's mounted on the same one inch tube that the intercooler is mounted on.
I broke down and ordered a aftermarket steering column. After looking closely at mine I decided not to use it. I went with a Flaming River stubby. It's only like 17 inches long so only the steering shaft will go through the firewall which will also keep me plenty of distance away from the exhaust/turbo. I don't know what the next thing I'm going to focus on. might just stay on the front and start making the wheel wells. I got parts for the shifters on the way soon too.
How's it going everybody? So back in November I purchased a 98 Chevy K3500 Crew Cab that had a 4BT swap already done to it.
The truck originally came from TX (don't know if the swap was done there or not) so the body was rust free. Being from New England it's a rare find to have no rust...
The truck: 2006 F250 with a dead 6.0 200k+
The motor is a 2005 5.9 common rail in need.
I was going to put in a 12 valve out of my 1993 2500 but ended up getting a core 5.9 CR with the G56 I picked up. I was hoping it only needed some minor work but it had a broken ring and damaged cylinder...
Start of 64 Chevy build. Old truck sitting in back. Thought it would be cool to start another money pit, just didn’t want another LS motor build so thought a odd ball ISB 4 cylinder would be expensive. So opened the wallet and here we go.
