27 p/u
« on: February 09, 2013, 05:58:39 PM »
ford 302 , C6 3 speed
9"rear (3.00 gear installed)
the original donor(freebee) engine pooped the bed so i bought a reconditioned long block from checker.
this i basically a new engine with 1 oil change under it's belt.
i installed those bombproof motor mounts and the reversed corvair box yesterday.
this is my daily driver.
averaging 20 city 26 hwy mpg
front axle 64 f-100
12x2 juice brakes all around.
i'll be tinkering with this thing for the rest of my life

Billy,
That's a cool truck!  Looks like it came a long way from when you first got it.  Great fab work and I like the canteen overflow can!  Thanks for posting.

because of the shorter pitman arm.
it is a little harder to turn the wheel.
but with the previous setup
i had a bit of bumpsteer and if i locked the brakes up it would pull to the right.
yesterday i got it up to about 50 mph
let go of the wheel
and stomped the brakes
no pull and it stopped just fine.
those 12x2" juice brakes work just fine on a dinky lightweight rig like this.
