Re: Project "Rock Bottom" rebuild

Note to self and others there is a difference between left side and right side calipers on the back of these...lol

Passenger side is done, had to take dad to the emergency room, hopefully nothing to serious, waiting now...I'm still going to get it on tires today...just might be dark when it happens..

Re: Project "Rock Bottom" rebuild

Well got pop situated at the hospital, he has some blocked blood vessels and or clots in his feet...so waiting to see if he will need surgery again.. but after that I got home and got "rock bottom" on its tires, and I have to say I'm super proud of it, it looks like a monster, it's probably the meanest looking wk in town...






Doesn't look like I'll have an issue with that bolt coming down from the UCA...also I don't think I'm going to have to do a pinch weld mod either





The stance is insane...just what I wanted...

Re: Project "Rock Bottom" rebuild

That does look mean. Plenty of room. Is the spacer even needed for clearance? Remind me the tire size?

285/70/17 I believe...are you talking about the spacer in the rear suspension or the spacers on the axels?

The wheel spacers. They look great. I'm just curious if they were needed for clearance.

Re: Project "Rock Bottom" rebuild

I think I could have gone to 1.5" instead of 2", when it's not rainy and I get off work when it's still light outside I'll take some measurements....I did see that I might not have to do the pinch weld mod hopefully...

Thanks. Regardless, you are going to have a rig you can be proud of.

Re: Project "Rock Bottom" rebuild

More progress....completed honing



Assembled the pistons...


Cleaned up the gasket surfaces...installed the main bearings..



Never done this before but I'm plasti-gauaging the crank


Letting the plasti-gauage do its thing lol


Results....


So anyone else done this? Am I within tolerances?? This crank is a "T", but I'm not using the specific bearings just the standard bearings...

Any help with this before I proceed would be appreciated!!!

Oh yeah.....DIXIE HORN!!!

Re: Project "Rock Bottom" rebuild

Thanks for the reply azhang263, but I've decided I'm going to fork over the money and order the correct "T" bearings for the mains from the dealer. I'm going to plasti gauge them as well and see what the difference is...
