So heres a link to my photobucket album Cummins Build

Its a lifted 79 F350
460ci Big block

Love the old dentsides!! I'd like to find a '73 (hopefully a 4 door if they made 'em) and build it into a sweet 4X4 with a 7.3

now i just gotta order my mounting kit. and find a dang 4x4 trans cuz I know that trans will not hold up to cummins haha. and its a redic amount for adapter plates. way over what i can just buy a used trans for.

Took a few hours and started cleaning, degrease, and sanding **** down. Got some high temp. paint and a spray gun and started going at it. was just gunna do the exhaust manifold and turbo exhuast housing. but then i said screw it and might as well do the whole block.
Tomarrow I gotta go to browns before class and get a wire wheel for my drill. gunna polish up the end of the turbo. the top tappet covers. alternator, pumps, intake manifold, and some other vairous things. then gunna go get a gloss heat temp paint and gloss some other things just so its not all just flat black. should be sweet when its done.

I dont have much time tomorrow cuz i got work then class. but wends. im gunna finish up the rest of that side. the do the other majority of the front and the whole other side.















God it looks a trillin times better already.

Did some more painting and cleaning today. just got a lil more scrubbing to do on the front below the oil fill. theres like a pound of burn access oil under there lol.
painted my turbo, intake manifold, and polished my alternator and a/c pump and tension pulley. umm cant seem to get my clutch fan off. have to find someone who has a tool for it :/
ohh well. oh and if anyone has a 4x4 trans that will work with my 96 motor that would be sweet to buy. Id prefer a manual but ill take an auto if its a good deal.
