Finally cleaned up some clutter.

I made a panel to mount my vacuum gauge, rear window switch, and defroster switch. Check it out. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Next weekend\'s project:

If the weather cooperates, this will be going in and I'll figure out why the current one won't stay in reverse.

Re: Next weekend\'s project:

hmm well since I dont think you saw my other thread and you have one... I'm wanting to put a 435 in place of the E4OD and I'm not sure what's going to be involved in setting up the linkage. I was thinking that a tranny uses either hydro or mechanical linkage and cant be adapted, but it looks like you're using hydro on the 435? I dont understand exactly how that hydraulic setup works but that is probably the better route since my truck was built during a hydro linkage era (does that even matter though?). What's so special about that bellhousing that makes it rare? I'm also trying to figure out if I can run an 11" clutch, what decides whether I have to use 10" or 11"? lotsa questions for this swap since i've only swapped one manual tranny and it was on it's way out of the truck [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Next weekend\'s project:

No, I hadn't seen the other thread.

The bellhousing is rare because it accepts the hydraulic linkage. Bear in mind that shortly after the linkage went hydro that all manuals got integral bellhousings instead of bolt-ons, like that one. That means that most bolt-on bellhousings DON'T have the bosses to attach the slave cylinder.

You'll need that bellhousing, a hydro clutch setup, a pedal bracket with a clutch pedal, a different crossmember, a flywheel (they'll take both 10" and 11", so don't worry)/clutch/pressure plate, the d'shafts will have to be cut, and your floopan adapter will have to be cut for the shifter since there was never one made for that body style and the NP. I'm probably leaving something out, but my gf just rented Red Dragon on PPV, so I gotta go. [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Re: Next weekend\'s project:

It's in, but I hit a few snags with the hydraulic linkage. Looks like I'm gonna be starting in gear and speed-shifting to get to the parts store Monday. [img]images/graemlins/crybaby.gif[/img]

Re: Next weekend\'s project:

your dash uncluttering project looks great Steve.

As to your tranny project, sorry, I'm an auto guy, so what are we looking at? Your taking out a smaller tranny and putting the big boy in? Out of curiousity, did you weigh either unit? Oh, to have a tranny so nice and compact!!!

Last weekend\'s project:

Look again - I ul'ed more pics. I put in the same model I took out, but after driving today, I found it's pretty ragged. 3rd gear has some NASTY vibration & noise under power, and I didn't cut the hole in the bellcrank right. Lucky for me Ford only wants $15 for an OE part. [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] I shoulda checked before I started messing around with the junkyard stuff. [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
