  Found this crewcab headed to the crusher and bought if off the trailor. Gonna modernize it to be durable and reliable and run well. old iron with a mondern twist. Gonna get busy this weekend for sodablasting cab and body work. I'm not a drag racer but was a bogger guy back in the day. Just want this one to be a driver with some capabilities. Definetly gonna be a eye catcher once completed. If you go to www.offroaddesign.com and check out their crew cab gonna be a similiar build with smaller tires. Seen this truck at the ultimate adventure 2008 wyoming part of the tour. Its a chevy but built stout and reliable and fell in love with this concept. so now building me a ford version. A year of gathering pieces and now I'm building my ulitimate ford truck. catch you later and will keep updating as things progress.

 Bogger stuff. Always helped guys. Usually the engine stuff you have certain restiction. The trick is to trim the rotating weight off truck within guidelines per rules. More than on way to skin a cat they say.

hey guys still working project. My work has kept me away from home alot. making money but not much play time. Lloyd has finished my heads and will be picked up this week and hope to be assembled by end of august. gonna have to trust a friend to assemble this for me because my work is running me out of state for the past 3 months making bank but no play time. when I get home will get some photos on engine and some flow numbers. My 4wd builds are usually as critical as a dragster build by some people standard. I build for my situations and reliability. some of the places I play and run are remote and rough. catch you later and photos soon.

400 ford CJ assembly problems! windage tray and crankscraper MPGheads. it is designed for a shorter stroke engine. I tried several different ways to make work. really like scotts windage tray but no luck. shimmed out to max with his stud kit. but would have to do some serious grinding on windage tray to clear. Also had some different ARP studs for main supports. these worked but as I shimmed out to clear I would get into oil pump pickup tube clearance issues. so my original plan didn't go as planned. so I called Kevko racing and had them build me a custom midsump oil pan with all the windage and crank oil control mods into pan. should be here tuesday 12 oct. kevko pan with pickup $340.00. hopeing for factory 4wd pan and windage tray, around $100.00 bucks but no luck, ouch$$ on that learning curve. Need a pan that works on up hill and down hill applications. Ran off-road pans on steep grades and it pumped all my oil to front and starved rear sump and has to shut down. gage was a bouncing with a 8qt pan. so to correct was to build a midsump to correct this possible issue. when on steep down hills (30 degrees to 40 degrees) for long periods it will pump all your oil to front in down hill. not you normal situation but in my mountain world it happens often.

Filled 4V's.....   Shocked      Am surprised there has been no comments from the gallery....

Looks like he's used devcon?    I like to give any port filling a coat of POR fuel tank sealer as a prevention against fuel attacking the filler over time..... seems to work well.

 My head guy is a very smart guy when dealing with these issues. Lloyd creek pretty smart head cutter. If he says its a good thing I go with it. He has all the tools to do what he needs to do.

 the engine is done. I had Kevko racing build me a oil pan also. its a midsump for 4wd. it has all the goodies trap doors and crank scrapers and baffling needed. I can't us a rear sump because of my downhill, will starve a engine for oil on steep grades. got with kevko racing and built a custom one of a kind 4wd pan for my application. even built in room to get to torque converter bolts between engine and tranny. will have a photo soon. my camera took a crap and deleted all my photos of internals of this oil  pan. modern technology is killin me.
