  • Yes SS sort of speak. Will have 172 in it so almost double the power of an 8n. Did you get your Everett installed yet?

  • Nope. Dealing with a '94 F350 7.3 idiT CC Dually with Allison trans install, 4X4 conversion, Eaton E-locker front diff, True trak rear diff, new leaf springs all around, reverse front shackle kit and I forgot what else. (Plus Loss of interest, weather, family things, etc)
    It's about road ready and her Ferguson will sneak in for a fast addition after that.
    That Fergy should not take more than a day or two at the most.
    Add a few other bumps in the road and soon enough, God willing, it will be done or at least road worthy for now. Still need a front winch bumper and a hidden 5th wheel hitch in the bed.

  • OT For Bruce
  • OT for Bruce, Don't know you or your build but something I learned the hard way. I took a 2 year break from wrenching and put some serious hotshot miles on my 94 IDI Turbo. I thought kepping the old Ford stock would keep it dependable. After damaging the original and the wrecking yard engines #8 piston I quit the road and went back to turning wrenches. Latter learned that the Ford techs were installing a larger down pipe when the IDI Turbo 7.3's were under warranty. Seems factory was 2" and the upgrade was 3". Even stock a pyrometer would be a good idea also. Seems it was best not to push it past 1100 deg F.

  • This money bucket in the asphalt also has an upgraded cooling fan to go with it.
    I ran it WOT over Mt Hood a few years ago and it didn't make it for several reasons.
    The next trip over Mt Hood should be a bit cooler at WOT and 11,245 ft elevation.
    Then again, last trip I figured something was not right and I pushed it up this side rather than breaking down on the other side. I got it turned around, cooled down and made it home. Along with everything else came a $600 radiator.

    The exhaust system came from Diamond Eye in Ontario, Ore. they wanted to use my truck for a mock up to sell other systems and it does have the 3" down pipe that currently runs into a 4" pipe. The 4" is going to get pulled out and reroute a 3" pipe inside the frame rail a bit to install a PTO pump on the BW1356 Transfer case possibly.

    Paint job will get a white pearlescent at some time.

  • Irony
  • Reminds me of lugging the 59 Belvidere by gooseneck from Washington through California. Don't remember the highway's name but I remember all the water stops, heat index of 117, standing by the truck while it cooled down and looking up at Mt. Shasta's snow cap. That's irony.

  • Re: Irony
  • It was a heavy traveled road, lots of people stopped at the water stations. Might have been an Interstate or a Bi-way.
