RE: A Big Thank You

Cummings owners probably:S Now that's FUNNY!!! My response to those that call it Cummings instead of Cummins is that Cummings is a town in Georgia. I love calling them Cummings around my Ram owner friends. https://i.postimg.cc/FHsNDqRp/lol.png

RE: A Big Thank You

I want to give a big thank you to everyone who responded to my three posts. I want you to know that I am now more confused than ever about what to do. Welcome to rv.net. https://i.postimg.cc/FHsNDqRp/lol.png

RE: What did you do to your truck today?

https://i.postimg.cc/YSMyfJBh/IMG-9454.jpg I drove it down to the museum to pick up my mail. Hopefully the 410 goes in next week.

RE: What did you do to your truck today?

GMC was GMC and Chevrolet was Chevrolet until 1973. That was the year that they became one.

RE: Old tow rig about ready for duty again!

Thank you very much but I'm not too sure that it will ever see new paint. I know...just ribbing you. It's such a cool truck! Thank you, old trucks are awesome.

RE: New shocks?

^Yeah I'm going to take the rears down to the mid 30's and see if that helps before I spend a [email protected]*load of money on shocks. Dang I didn't know shocks had gotten that expensive, You may find running on under inflated tires to be more expensive. I ran 35 psi in BF Goodrich M/T on an empty 3/4 4wd for years and they wore perfectly even. I run 50 psi front 45 psi rear in my current 3/4 ton when empty and they have all worn perfectly even too. I wouldn't think that running 35 psi in the rear tires of an empty dually would cause premature tore wear. Other than tire pressure I don't see any other way to improve the empty ride of a 1-ton pickup.

RE: Old tow rig about ready for duty again!

That's awesome!! Looks GREAT! Your truck is next buddy! You're already turning that thing into a museum piece of art. Time to bust out the hammers, sanding blocks, bondooo and paint gun! Thank you very much but I'm not too sure that it will ever see new paint.

RE: Bought a second truck.

https://i.postimg.cc/SstRN3V3/IMG-9406.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/BZp9D20Z/IMG-9409.jpg I rebuilt the carburetor yesterday that I'm going to run on the 410. Its a Motorcraft 4300 from a 1974 Ford F-250 460, its 610 CFM. https://i.postimg.cc/wBLnBm2p/IMG-9410.jpg I got my phenolic carb spacer too. https://i.postimg.cc/CMPrS708/IMG-9404.jpg And my new Luk clutch finally arrived. Not so sure why it took soo long to get here. I ordered the new flywheel the day I made the deal on the 410. The 410 and 428 crankshafts (the same crankshaft) are externally balanced and require different dampers and flywheels from all of the other Ford FE engines. Getting close. Hopefully next week.

RE: Bought a second truck.

https://i.postimg.cc/kMNkfRXd/IMG-9327.jpg I took the engine over to my friends shop where we'll do the swap. This is like the doctor letting you carry your new heart into the operating room. ;) https://i.postimg.cc/WzfmX7dn/IMG-9328.jpg This is who I bought the truck from and where we'll swap engines. https://i.postimg.cc/YqZfFbK2/IMG-9329.jpg I checked inside all of the cylinders with a bore scope and this is what I found in #2. :E :B https://i.postimg.cc/KYqnZNNy/IMG-9330.jpg And I was very pleased to see that it doesn't have flat top pistons. These should be 10.5:1 compression like it had from the factory. So far things are going great.

RE: Bought a second truck.

They look fantastic! The fact that they are new old stock is nothing short of amazing... Thank you, I am 110% happy with them. They are a lot better than I ever hoped to find.

RE: Bought a second truck.

https://i.postimg.cc/t4DGx0cQ/IMG-9311.jpg I got rid of most of the red yesterday. The carburetor is a Motorcraft 4300 4-V from a 460 in a 1974 Ford truck. Its rated at 610 CFM. Should work nicely until I find a suitable replacement. https://i.postimg.cc/SKwTXDmb/IMG-9312.jpg I am very pleased with my Mercury valve covers. They appear to be NOS (new old stock). There are no signs of even having been bolted on to an engine nor signs that they have ever been painted. 2nd most expensive part so far, right behind the new flywheel.
