hi all, new here

Just want to say hi. I'm in MI, Flint right now for school. Here's a pick of my POS:



It's a 78 1/2 ton with either a 350 or a 400 motor (came stock with 400, previous owner says it has a 350 out of a sprint car, under all the mud i can't tell), TH350 trans, NP203 transfer case, 6" of lift and 35's.

I posted a question about the t-case chain in general 4x4 (i figured it was "general" since 203's made it into some other trucks too). If anyone can let me know what are the symptoms when the chain gets loose, and what do i have to do to change it, that's be great.

Hey there. Walcome aboard!
Easy wat to check if it is a 400sbc look for weights or holes drilled in the harmonic balancer being as a 400 is externally balanced [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: hi all, new here

I'll get a better picture of it on top of a sunbird and a taurus in a few weeks. Yes, it's my beater, my daily driver is a '97 mark viii. I am trying to put as little money into this truck as possible, but with the way i drive it when i take it off road, that may not be easy. The wood got kind of necessary. The bed was rotted out really bad, the only thing holding it on was a piece of plywood that was bolted through it to the frame.

thanks for the welcome!

Re: hi all, new here

Welcome to the board. Nice little truck you got there. I see you believe in letting nature take care of your fender trimming. Forget the sawzall, move up north and let the road salt take care of it. hell, you could probably fit 39.5's on there in a couple years. Instead of fixing the t-case, go find a 205 and bolt it to the 203 gear reduction and have a Kickass setup!! Oh, I think I am getting caried away trying to convert the new guy to hard core wheeler. Go ahead and ask all the uestions you have. We will all help you out, and maybe you ould give someone else a hand too.

Re: hi all, new here

Welcome aboard; you're rust trimming and hood crease are very similar to those on my POS.

Lots of good info here, ask away and have fun with the beater.

Re: hi all, new here

If money were no object, i'd be a harcore wheeler AND a hardcore hot rodder. God knows i can figure out how to do it myself... but i can't afford half the tools i need. Right now, like i said, i don't want to dump any money into this truck. When i blew up my NP 203 like a month ago, i just let it sit because i knew my friend had another NP 203 for me lined up for $50, i just had to wait until i was back in school. Now i have it hooked up, and i have a noise i didn't have before. Damnit. I would have gone with a 205, but then i would have needed new driveshafts, and for that kind of money i'd rather put gears in my lincoln. Can you bolt a 205 to the gear reduction on the 203? that might give me a low range good for more than burnouts. damn, there's that whole money thing again.

Anyway, if you guys don't mind, can you scroll up to general 4x4 discussion and check out my NP203 chain thread? I'm having a problem with a noise, and i REALLY don't want to drop that heavy-ass transfer case again. Of course i think the noise is from the case, since it started when i replaced it. Kind of a clunking, when the front end is under load and moving, not when i just rev it on the brakes without moving. goes away when i unlock the front hubs and lock the t-case (i had the part time conversion in the old one, but not the new one, figure i don't need it until spring). Any help that can be provided would be much appreciated.

Desertrat, i saw those pics of your truck, that is awesome. If i only had the time and the tools.

Heres a pic of my good car:


I'd love it if my truck was cooler, but for the same dollars i'd really rather add an S-trim and some other choice mods to that lincoln (which would make a kick-ass sleeper, hence my screen name. apparently someone else took sleeper, which is my name on the other boards i'm on).
