Little bit of progress this weekend . Got the cross member and skid plate bolted in with some fresh hardware . The frame had pulled together a little bit with the crossmember being out for a while. So I reversed a clamp to push it back out .

Made some real progress this weekend . Got the front axle back under the frame . Pulled the hubs off the rear axle . I'm ditching the drum brakes so I pulled the backing plate off also . Cleaned out the rear diff and put fresh rtv back on . Rear pinion had lots of play but the pinion nut came off really really easy so that was fishy . Pulled the leaking pinion seal out and retorqued the pinion nut to spec out of curiosity . Suprise everything is nice and tight again so that was good.

Got some neat stuff from the junkyard also . A Fass fuel system from a wrecked second gen . Tested it in the shop and it primes and makes pressure . Also got some k20 calipers for the disc brake swap . There is also a complete second gen with nv4500 transmission that he's parting out . The price is definetly right .

Anyone had good experience with those ? I know it's a fairly bolt in swap but I've heard both good and bad about that transmission .

Lots of new thing going on everyone . I did end up picking up that nv4500 and was going to use it as is but that spiraled out of control as per usual. Finally got to putting some fresh discs on the rear for the swap

The nv4500 after cleaning and the truck i pulled it from . 5th gear had a tooth missing so i decided to replace that and send it . But when i was tightening on a new gear i actually broke a tooth off of third gear on the countershaft. Whoops Picked up a fresh countershaft and a full rebuild kit for the transmission . Lesson learned i guess . Also bought a LuK 13 inch ceramettalic clutch kit to pair with the fresh trans . Its no south bend but hopefully it will do what I need . Also a little before and after of cleaning the motor

Resealing timing cover and oil pan . Jumped a tooth on the pump gear while i was there . And just a view inside the engine. Id say it looks pretty good.
