I found a 1 ton Ford crewcab today. The efi'ed 460 has a bad cylinder but the computer kept it running nicely even stone-cold. The rest of it is in good shape. I drove it and it would be a nice truck. It has a balljointed D60 front and a Sterling 10.25 rear. I can buy the whole thing for $1500 Canadian dollars. For all you guys in the US it comes to about $2.00 Not that bad but it can be at times!

The hassle is getting rid of the rest of the truck.

The manual overdrive tranny shifts well and it has some sort of chaindriven tcase. Anyone know what the tranny would be?? Maybe NV4500? The 1st, lowest gear sure is no creeper... I'll keep my NP435 and NP205 that I already have. That granny 1st in the 435 is nice.

Alot of good part on that truck can be re-sold, or talk to your local junkyard and make a deal with them that after you pull the front axle they need to remove it with a wrecker body.
They should be able to pull it up a steel ramp with little effort.

They ZF 5 spds are very hard to find and the T-case attched to it is a BW1356. Stick with the 435/205 combo. Or if you like the 5-spd the 205 will bolt right up, but there not a durable as the 435's.

1500 is not too much just for the axles and drive shafts (to cut down later), right? I could store the ZF tranny and 1356 tcase to sell later. I don't have room to store the truck anywhere. I'ld have to take what I wanted then dispose of the rest- small back yard. So- the axles are just going rate... not a great deal for the front and rear, but not bad, right? Plus at least there is no shipping costs and gears match front and rear.

I'll acquire rims and rubber to roll everything around the shop, too...

So I've already got a 14 bolt rear. I'm getting too anxious. I'll just wait for a front to come along. I don't need another truck to complicate matters.

OK, I thought I had read enough to know the front was a d60! Thanks for the heads up though. They sure look alike, don't they?

OK, now I have two NP435s. The 3rd syncro is gone out of one of them so I can grab what I need. Here is a nice NP205 that is already non-slip yoke.



Anyone need a couple of 327's??

My GM NP205 did have a slip yoke off of the rear- and it was really long. Bonus on the Ford 205. I also have the shifting linkage for the tcase and one shift lever for the tranny.

It looks like the length for the Ford small block bellhousing to rear tcase yoke will be an inch or so shorter than my YJ with the TH350 and 242 setup, and even shorter than my previously planned 700r4 242 plan- and it would have been a problem going SYE on the 242. Always the hack-n-tap but not like the solid NP205 plan.

This is going to be one bullet-proof drivetrain when it is finished!!

I'm holding out for a front king-pin Ford D60. Plus, the bank account has taken a beating so I'm cool waiting for one to turn up at the right price.

As this is going into a Scrambler length vehicle driveshaft length isn't really a concern like in a CJ or YJ...

What do you do when you let a tooth abscess and get a skull infection for 3 weeks?? NOTHING!! Finally back to almost full strength and got some work done today.

Pics, at request to prove it!

I had asked Jeremy at throttledowncustoms to WD40 the frame so that it could make the trip from the border to my home, atop the open trailer on a wet slushy January road. It was wet and slushy so the WD40 did protect it even though I did tarp it. It was a chore to clean up though.

Brake-clean hose down, brake-clean wipe down, scotch brite pads x 1 hour, brake-clean hose down, wipe down, then prime with etching primer and paint!











I still need to sand it a bit then second and third coat it but it can sit under the carport, not risk rusting, and not occupy the hoist. Now I can get to a few oil changes, change out the two bad Waggy front universals, and replace the black sludge in the Waggy diffs and brown atf in the old NP219 Quadradrive tcase.

So if it doesn't rain tomorrow like it is forecast to, I'll get another coat on it.

Also degrease the two trannies and tcase. Messy messy messy. Seals and anything needing replacement then paint and prime... Ought to take a week between other more important jobs the wife assigns.

This is the engine I wound up buying. It is a 235 hp version of the 302. It has a slightly taller Cobra plenum and Cobra heads. These things can easily go over 300 hp- but that's for later.



They are still figuring out at the salvage yard how to get a manual trannied ecu working with this engine. This version evidently only shipped with an auto...
