I finally finished with the major stuff. As yopu can tell, it's very dirty. Haven't ever washed it! The body is in great shape. Just some orange surface rust sopts. I plan on a paint job soon. I only paid $500 when i found it. I probably have about $6000 into it now. But some of that is like buy a set of 35's, then selling them for half price to get 36's. Then selling them and getting 38's. I did that kinda stuff abunch. Did the 258-360 swap, axle swap, T18, and tons of little thing. You know a hundred here and ahundred there, it really added up fast. Anyway, here is the link. If you click on the pic, you should be able to blow it up and read some technical stuff about what I did. Any more questions, feel free to ask. Dennis

Looks pretty good man!!! I hope your ram mounting to your diff cover holds up. Losing your steering and all your axle fluid at the same time couldn't be a good thing!

Great job! Feels good to bring a J truck back from the dead even though a lot of $$ is spent. Ask me, I know.

Looks good, but a couple things from the pics that spring to mind:

* Any way of securing the clevis-pin end of the ram with more than that external spring-clip?!? I would think a cotter pin and washer would be in order.

* Is it going to be a b*tch to bleed those rear lines, with the bleeder screw below the level of the hard-lines? Also looks like it might get knocked-off if you play on the rocks. I would think clocking it up another 90º would be ideal.

Well, I plan on moving the calipers up, just behind the axle tube. And as far as the diff cover, the ram only runs as much pressure as the pump can do, so I think it's not enough to rip it off. Put some serious weld on there. Did some serious turning yesterday, and no problems. I did not have any problems bleeding the lines. Dennis

Plus I welded the bracket toward the top of the diff cover, figure it's stronger by the bend and bolts, then say right in the middle. Now time to tear the engine down and rebuild it. Ive been driving an AMC V7 for some time now. Seems I have a burnt valve, that is stuck open.?

It looks like the 14ff worked great. Were you able to get the perches out to 50" on center?

Yea the diff cover was pretty easy. Just used some flat metal out of an old lawn mower actually. The diff and cover pics came out kinda dark, but will try for some better pics soon.
And yes, my pitman arm nut does need to be tightened. I lost my 1 1/4" socket somewhere in the barn. Thats as far as I could get it with my channel locks. Dennis
