    Project revive 93

    So this project has suddenly become a bit more of a priority.... Thinking at this point it will be hone, rings, gaskets, seals and reinstall unless someone has a better idea for hopefully less than $1500.00 maybe more if quick and will last long term. This will replace my daughters totaled truck. She does not need big power, just a reliable goat and feed hauler. Only catch is she will have to learn to drive a manual trans. she is 5' and 95 pounds so we will also see how she deals with a potentially heavy clutch. SHe has no money or job so for now it will have to be on my limited dime...If she decides she wants to keep and own the truck she will have to figure out how to pay me.......

    Railroad rail

    I could use an 18" piece of the big stuff. I will be in Pateros Fri. night thru Sun afternoon. Any chance of meeting some where in route on late Sun afternoon? I will have the travel trailer in tow but could put a few pieces in the truck bed.

    You need to get a some of these for next season. http://www.sharrowengineering.com/the-propeller/ Boat Test tried these and found over 20 percent or better reduction in fuel use at slower speeds and slightly better top speed.Also quiter and less vibration.

    The verdict is in.....seriously stuck rings. Piston skirts below the rings look almost new and the crowns are pretty clean but the ring lands are very carboned over and the rings are not going anywhere. Bores look good and no ridge evident. Bearings look good so not sure why the rings would be so crudded up and stuck. Maybe some pics tomorrow when I get things cleaned up a bit.

    Yup it's stout but not intended for big engines, I still need to make a removable cross member and ,maybe even another support post and face plate for the single wheel end if I use it for big stuff. That is why the engine is still hanging from the hoist as well. The stand is just to steady it. I also pulled the heads and everything else before I pulled it out of the truck to reduce the weight a bit as well.. What does the crank weigh? thinking I will pull the pan and crank before I drop the block down on a pallet or set of dollies.

    So got a few hours again to play with this beast... still going the wrong direction but at least it is close to the backward direction. Now it is cleanup and decide what is going to go back in.... Oh and the face plate on my engine stand is not wide enough to get to the lower holes on the rear engine flange. I don't know if the fingers will hold on the ones I can reach. Just goes to show.... It's always somthin.....

    Well it’s time .. winterize again

    Mine gets to rest in the neighbors semi heated RV garage.... so to winterize, I just have to carefully back it in.

    UUUff Da, thanks, that is good to know. Several ramifications to that. I will have to make sure I remember.

    So maybe wire a relay for the head lights so the switch is only carrying the relay current and things would be better?

    6x6 Ford doing it wrong. LOL

    With something like that you need to drive at least both back axles or what is the point. You might just as well have duals
