the bushing/fitting that I used as a drill guide and the drill bit that made the hole are now the timing tool and have been tucked away in the kit with all the other timing tools. Which was always my "Plan B" all along so no real biggie.

I'd prolly think about finding / making a regular steel pin 'cause if you snap a drill bit off in there you'll be bummin' and drill bits do snap pretty easily in that direction especially with the considerable force you'll get in that location with just a small slip at the other end.

No way, just wanted to make sure he knew they existed. Dave's doing good.

Dave if you end up going power steering and you want a scout box I have 2 or 3 good ones.

@ Matt, thanks for the tip about breaking the drill bit I should have thought of that. I'm going to order the correct size pin from mcmaster carr. let me know when you find the camera cable. In the meantime, got the proper mounts now so the engine is setting in place. I am concerned about the clearance at the front axle to crank pulley and have a few ideas about that. Pretty sure I have the crank pulley from my 5 brg. 2.25 so may try that. Also have toyed with trying something I have wanted to do for a long time, extending the spring hangers down an inch or two to mimic the placement of the MOD/1 ton suspension. Curious to see if anyone has done or tried to do that and what advice they have to offer. I wonder if parts exist for that. Guess I could hack my frame and just drop mine whatever distance I decide...hmmm...

I have a set of factory 1 ton spring hangers that I carefully removed from my old frame. If you remove your stock pieces carefully and they are not hacked and your frame is not a rusty POS I would do a straight swap. The XMOD hangers are a waste on my spring over. I am going to be welding them on in September so if you want to do this, it would have to be rather quickly.

This thread is worthless without pics or at least a cool story.

Looking good Dave. But I thought this was a little more plug and play than this. Are there any specific factors contributing to the amount of fab work and other adjustments needed?

Thanks Charles. The only plug and play part is that the chassis mounts are in the correct place. Everything else requires some kind of fettling to make it work. But, so far nothing extremely difficult. Notching the center crossmember was a bit nerve wracking to make the first cut.

Most of the complications result from it being a LHD truck and being a 109 which has a taller frame section than an 88.

@wolf, the broken toe was already addressed in the NOVA HH thread

Please. I don't read that thread anymore because all it is is Pedro claiming to show up and then not showing up, and Gustavo wanting to host a pool party at his house.

Oh crap, just found your toe! Nice one. In honor of your toe, I shall make it my avatar.

Yeah, that was not a very good idea. Even I was grossed out and it was my toe. Thanks for ruining my thread.

I didn't ruin it, I just spiced it up a bit. It was boring anyway. Now get back to work and post more updates.
