Lookin good Dan. I can't tell from the pics but if you dont have an upper support on the fuel filter bracket it will eventually break at one of the bends from vibration of the engine. The long unsupported runs will bite ya everytime. If you need an exhaust manifold maybe you could ask Jen for a nice SS unit!

SD, there probably will a brace in the brackets future, but not until I get the engine installed in the cadtrac. The design is pretty tight on space.

Today, got a few moments to check to see if the bolt pattern on the adapter plate was symmetrical, it is! That makes it easier to make the hydraulic pump adapter plate. I have not gotten the bolt circle diameter yet as I need to machine a pin to fit in the center hole before I can get the measurement.
I did make the brace for the fuel filter bracket today, it really stiffened the bracket up.
With all the other things I did today, I did manage to fix the motor on my air compressor(loose fan), move the parts donor truck into place to start tearing it down. It will donate the rear axle housing, the master cylinder the E-Brake lever, the heater core and fan, and the front spindle assemblies. Maybe a few other items to be determined as we go.

Default Rain out today.

We got a good start on stripping the truck for the parts I needed today, then it rained.
  1. Coming down pretty heavy.
  2. The bank gravel is doing its job of allowing the water to sink down to the tile.
  3. As far as we got on stripping the truck.
We punted on getting the old wooden bed off of it for today, we will hit it tomorrow.

Default Brace and parts axle.

Here is a photo of the brace on the fuel filter bracket.
  1. Fuel filter bracket brace.
  2. Donor axle ready to be cut out of whats left of the truck.
Tomorrow is another scrap day here, we will finish up the truck, cut up an old front suspension, and maybe two old trailer frames that are not useable in their condition.

Default Second Donor Axle on the Tri-stand......

Being stripped down.
  1. The donor axle cut free of the truck. Rear.
  2. Donor axle cut free of the truck. Front.
  3. Remains of the suspension arms cut away.
  4. I have to cut three brackets off yet.
  5. The left of drivers side of the axle.
Today was all about getting the last of the scrap cut down to pieces that can be handled without killing ones self. I cut everything down to prepared, might as well get the extra money for it. I use my plasma cutter, I have found that if I get a good clean ground, I can cut up some very nasty, rusty steel with it.
I got me a good ground and started whittling the truck frame down, I cut the axle free of the truck and proceeded to cut the frame up to the transmission.
I had three other things to cut down into scrap also. I spent about three and a half hours cutting and piling up the scrap to haul it in tomorrow. I have some scrap about a ton of pipe and structural steel to cut down into pieces tomorrow also to haul in.
That scrap should almost pay for the DRO for Emma.
Dan.

Dan,
I'm behind in my reading... I'll try to get caught back up with your thread in a day or two.

If you want a good Free 2D CAD program google Draftsight. Anyone who has used AutoCad will be right at home with it.

Default Breaking down the axle into pieces.....

Once I had the axle in the Tri-stand I could start removing the pieces I did not need, the first piece was the pumpkin cover. The second piece was the center section or third member. I removed the cover and drained the old nasty ninety weight out of it, and then removed all but one bolt out of the center section.
Then I removed the axle shafts and then pulled the last bolt out of the center section and threw it in the scrap pile.
Now the brake drums and hubs needed to be removed from the axle. I knew before I started it would be a fight all the way to remove the brake drum.
I removed the bearing retainer nuts and then punched out the wheel studs. The studs hold the drum to the hub. Once the studs were out I could remove the hub and have room ti work inside the brake drum.
I had to remove the bolts for the wheel cylinder, and then punch the self adjuster out to get the brakes to release their hold on the drum. Good thing I can still get parts for this old axle.
Once I got the brake drum off I could remove the brake backing plate, and the R/S is ready to remove the spring perch and then cut the center section free of this axle.
  1. Left side or driuvers side ready to be stripped.
  2. Right side or passenger side ready to be stripped.
  3. Axle shaft removed.
  4. Bearing retainer nuts,
  5. Right side stripped to the spindle.
I punted after getting the right side stripped down to the spindle, as I was tired and it was getting too dark to work.
Dan.

A few more pictures.
  1. End of the spindle.
  2. Pile O' Parts.
I will sort the Pile O' Parts tomorrow to see which of them are still useable and which are just plain scrap.
It took almost an hour to get the brake drum off the axle, I will get more pictures tomorrow of the process of stripping the axle down.
Dan.
