Looking good, I'm just about ready to order my frame from designa. How did you find dealing with them? were you satisfied over all?

Too early to tell on the product itself. Looks well built but i haven't put enough things on it to to see if all the measurements are correct. the suspension went on very nicely so far. Bulkhead and fuel tank holes seem to be off just a hair. Again way to early to call it one way or the other.

Iain is a nice guy, but a very busy one and communication is very very difficult. Not at all like dealing with a company in the US. It took way longer than expected or originally told (ordered in Sept, rec'd chassis in march). However he did accommodate a drivetrain change halfway through which was very nice of him.

That being said it all worked out in the end and I'm happy with that. I guess my only word of caution is don't be in a rush. Figure 6 months from order to receipt of chassis at least.

Um, until you have the transmission and transfer case bolted up you better not make any solid plans

Im going to cut out and box in a small section of the bulkhead. Shouldn't be too hard and I have some cold galvanizing spray to touch it up when done.

So some minor updates. I got the engine in position, and with a visit from Don we determined the footwell needed to be altered a bit to accommodate the vacuum pump. A few cuts and some bending and we got plenty of clearance and a decent looking footwell still. I will clean it up and weld it together before final assembly.

More amazingly the turbo seems to fit without issue with enough room for both the pre and post boost hoses and elbows. The steering linkage may be another nightmare.

My next goal is to run the brake and fuel lines... which will also require me to put the pedal towers and assemblies back together and in. A few questions:

1. Is there any reason why i shouldn't mount the fuel filter assembly along the frame rail under the truck instead of on the bulkhead. Im sure i will be pressed for space under the hood and I think this may free some room up for other items. Obviously the main concern would be damage on a trail but this truck isn't going to see any major trail use and even so it would be protected by the frame rail, i could even fab up a bracket to further protect it.
1a. Also just to make sure I'm not loosing my sh*t, the order for routing fuel lines is fuel tank, lift pump, fuel filter, injection pump correct? for some reason i thought the filter was before the lift pump but the way this came would suggest otherwise.

2. I haven't decided what to do with my brake system yet. Im running all Disco 1 calipers. Would a series MC and booster be sufficient or should i stick with a Disco 1 MC/booster? Im not sure if the Disco booster is the same size and if it would fit in the body work. My third option was just go aftermarket with willwood units from Jegs or summit. This is also appealing b/c they would be Double flare fittings and Im trying to convert everything over to double flare from bubble flare as DF fittings are much more readily available. Im also planning on running all Stainless lines, hopefully flaring them won't be too hard.

Anyways - heres some pics. My very ambitious and unrealistic goal is to have the drivetrain in before baby #2 comes in September and maybe even fire up the engine for a test.

Bill i've been referencing your thread a lot for this build. Did you have trouble bolting yours up?

Im trying to figure out the mounting for both of those. My kit came with a disco 1 cross member but i don't really see how its going to work. Do you have any pictures of your transmission TC bolted up into the frame?

Couple updates. Had some help yesterday and got the new rear main seal, machined flywheel, clutch, trans and transfer case in. Also got the rear brake line in and the brake assembly

MC is off a 83-87 crown Vic with a few minor tweaks and looks like it will be more than sufficient for the job. The disco one I ordered won't work so if anyone needs a brand new stc441 I have one


I was very happy with the flare we put on the stainless line. I was worried it would be too difficult to flare with my flaring kit

Had to put a 1/8 spacer between the booster and MC. also made my own trans mount plates out of the supplied disco crossmember that doesn't work.

let's hope the brake assembly clears the wing! (It should)

Looks good, tell me more about the Master Cylinder setup.


That's a Series Servo, right? Did you have any distance problems from the pushrod on the Servo to the inner seat on the Ford MC?

I hate the aftermarket Series MC available, they suck and seem to only last a couple of years at best………….sometimes it takes me two or three just to get one that works. Genuine is stupid @ $600, so I'd love to find a decent option.

Yes. It's a series booster, stc1816. Certainly not the most powerful but should be fine, has the right bolt pattern for my 2a tower and will clear the wing. If I have to push a little harder on the fat pedal to stop it so be it.

The MC is for a 83-87 crown Vic ($40 at Napa and in stock. It needed a 1/8" plate to make up some room between the MC and the servo. Also I had to fill in the inside of the MC Pushrod inner seat for exactly the reason you mentioned....solution, cut a bolt (I think it was 1/2" or 3/8 I forget) to just under and inch long. Drop it in the MC seat before connecting to booster and all set.

Cool, I need to replace my MC and would love to find another alternative. I might give that a shot, before I stick on this aftermarket Series MC I have.

You may need different line nuts. I believe they are DOUBLE FLARE. I assume the series is bubble but maybe not

This is Another advantage though. Bubble flares are a pain in the ass to find. Both the fittings and the flaring tool. and I'm converting wherever I can to double flare, for ease of replacement or changing things in the future.

Most of the plumbing ran. I ended up putting the fuel lines on top of the frame rail due to lack of room to route them both on the side as I wanted to. However looking at the body I think there will be plenty of room to access them in the future if need be. However I don't see any need to service them for a long time

I just need to get a length of 1/4" to go from the filter to the IP input, and a pickup/sender assembly for the tank.
