Here are some pics of the 14b front build.
Also thanks to Childers Machine and welding for doing a fantastic job pulling the one tube and retubing the long side and using 3.375in, 1/2in wall tube.

the solid inner C tapped on before pressing. The short (drivers side) is 12in tube while the long side is a 24in tube.



One side pressed on and the other being aligned to have .2-.3 degrees lower caster to compensate for road crown.



Both sides fully pressed and upper kingpin installed along with the lower race and shield.



The crane revolution seal kit. It replaces the factory adjusters with ones that can hold a dana 60 seal.



The outers assembled without stubs. I machined the hubs down to accept a chevy 2500 HD rotor.




And finally the dry fit build without axle shafts. The calipers are the JB8 code and the pistons are 60mm diameter each. These calipers are huge. I am using the WFO concepts ford caliper brackets to mount the factory 2500 HD calipers to. i decided to get the JB8 calipers vs the JB7.




More to come as i finish the build this weekend.

Holy bulletproof Batman! That looks great!

Are these pictures taken in your garage, your shop, or someone else's shop? I envy the room and tools you have!

Very long story and multiple locations... My 6.5 swap was done in my driveway... then I moved to Everett WA where the block cracked and it was put in a 15x40 storage unit where I swapped the 5.9 into it... That is where I learned to gas weld (oxy acetylene). Then I moved back to Albuquerque and was working part time at PepBoys. So all the tools are mine, but in PepBoys shop. The manager let me work on it on my lunch and before and after my shifts.

I’m currently using my brothers garage he just built, it’s 24x24. We are neighbors and he’s letting me keep my tools in there.

It weighs in about 800 lbs, a bit more than the rear. And the inner shafts are massive compared to the 35 spline stubs. I didn’t get pictures in all my excitement... Branik used 40 spline Yukon blanks and cut the 30 spline GM profile and turned the area for the seals. The shaft measures 1.625 in diameter, necked down to 1.565 for the seal and splines.

Only reason I even considered a 14b front was I had a spare housing... I had no donor D60 axle so I bough inner Cs, outer knuckles, spindles, everything. It did not matter what center I put them on...The 4340 inner shafts for a D60 are about 200-225 each and my custom 4340 were $225 ea so the cost is the same. In the end it came down to $300 more to build the 14b front over the D60 front strictly for the Crane Revolution 14 seals (175) and having a shop pull the old tube, machine the tube, press it in, and machine the knuckles and tubes to press together (125). Thanks to Childers machine and Welding here in Albuquerque for doing all the machine work. And of course the 14b gears are suuuuuper easy to set up, only took me about an hour to set them up.

It has been a while since I posted anything. A lot has been going on around here, including a divorce. We decided it would be better if we part ways.

Ok back on topic. The 14b is assembled, geared, and under the truck. I did have to shorten the ford 11.375in 35 spline stubs by about 3/16 of an inch but that was easy. Obviously the gears were super easy to setup being it has the adjusters like every other 14b axle.

Some other aspects are starting to get finished as well.

1. I finally installed the 1in body pucks under the bed so the body and bed line up. I put a 1in body lift on the cab to help clear the driveline when i swapped the cummins in.

2. I purchased a 24x12x1in radiator from frozen boost that I installed infront of my primary radiator to cool the JWAC charge. I have some 3/4ID heater hose cut to length, but I need another fitting for the water pump outlet before I can plumb it in.

3. I have decided to get rid of the mechanical fan. It is so close to the radiator and within .032in from the crank fluid balancer. I even had to shave the blades to make it clear the balancer. I am going dual electric fans! If the air flow is correct, both fans on high should move between 7800-8400CFM. I dont have to worry about amp draw because I am running a 280amp alternator from an N14 tractor.

4. I narrowed it down to 2 colors I am wanting to paint it. The fenders and lower portion of the body will be black bedlinered for stone chip resistance. The rest will be either Silver, or Safety Red.... What do you guys think?

Here are the air-water charge cooler radiator. If you look really hard in the last pic, you can find where I cut off the radiator cap and tapped the hole to 1/2NPT and put in a plug. It will be plumbed into my engine cooling system and run at 20psi like the current 6.7 cummins are.
Original with grill removed.




Charge cooler radiator mounted.




And just of the radiator with my brackets bolted on.
