94 Dually PSD

I'm starting this just to kind of keep track of what I need to do, want to do and have done.
The truck is a 94 PSD cab and chassis 4x4 5 speed. It has a touch under 91k miles and I bought it for 2k. It has been sitting since 02. Slowly I'd like to turn it into a atv hauler (ten foot aluminum flat bed) and my camper puller. The truck is fairly solid with the only real rust on the inside of the rocker panel, pinch weld for the weather stripping and near that area of the driver side floor. 94 Dually PSD-imageuploadedbyautoguide1371581126.922611.jpg

I also picked up a 96 F-350 SRW PSD for parts. This truck has 230k miles and 40k on a rebuilt stock tranny. I plan on pulling the interior xlt amenities out and putting it in my dually. 94 Dually PSD-imageuploadedbyautoguide1371581275.661434.jpg94 Dually PSD-imageuploadedbyautoguide1371581286.178534.jpg

So far I've ordered the new ignition cylinder with keys along with the door lock cylinders, the Donaldson air filter to do the DIY mod on the air cleaner, a TS 6 position chip, and some new decAls for the fenders for after the truck is painted. 94 Dually PSD-imageuploadedbyautoguide1371581573.961616.jpg these will go right where everyone else's powerstroke emblems would go, I do not have them. Mine originally came with the Turbo Diesel emblems. 94 Dually PSD-imageuploadedbyautoguide1371581643.928736.jpg

I picked up some parts off a F-150 from Florida to replace some dented and small surface rust parts that my truck had. I got a set off front fenders and a driver side door. I also misc. parts to replace the pushed in front end. Pictures to come soon. In the meantime I bought a o-ring kit for the fuel bowl and went thru that and reinstalled that, put a new positive battery cable off an f-450 I had at a friends shop and installed a new hood cable. Next I will be pulling the tanks from the spare truck and installing them in mine. 94 Dually PSD-imageuploadedbyautoguide1371581985.900215.jpg94 Dually PSD-imageuploadedbyautoguide1371582000.472586.jpg94 Dually PSD-imageuploadedbyautoguide1371582012.807390.jpg my friend helping me pull the front end apart and discovering the rusted out core support.

Well Friday night I towed the parts truck out to where the dually is, then Saturday started stripping it and began putting the dually together to get it running. We pulled the bed off the parts truck and pulled the sending unit out of it for the dually, I planned on using the front tank from it as well but because my dually is a cab and chassis the tank is too big and would rub on the driveshaft. After a long struggle with the oil filter, broken strap wrenches and some serious choice words we got the oil filter off. I filled her with oil, Put the new batteries in and filled the fuel bowl up turned the key and after a little bit she spat, sputtered and finally went.
For the first time for it running in a little over ten years, it only took a few seconds for it to clean itself out and idle real smooth. The alternator isn't charging but that's minor, just nice to have it up and running finally.
Saturday night I took the liberty of ordering a MBRP down pipe for it and today or tomorrow I'm going to order the egt gauge and boost as well. I've already done the DIY Donaldson filter mod and ordered the TS six position chip. That should be the extent of my performance mods for a very long while. Hopefully this week Ill be able to pick up the aluminum flatbed for it, It's ten feet long so I plan on stretching the frame another two feet or so to accommodate that as well as figuring out where I'm going to mount the hydraulic winch.94 Dually PSD-imageuploadedbyautoguide1372085921.165098.jpg
I also picked up a light at for the dually on Sunday for free!! Here you see it posing on my chevy.

Last night I headed over to do a little work to the dually. I replaced the alternator harness off of the parts truck and cut the plow frame off. What a pain it was to get it off. I can only imagine if you were trying to take it off to save it. I cut it in half three times lol. 94 Dually PSD-imageuploadedbyautoguide1372373627.800427.jpg
Tossed the lightbar onto it and also took it for a spin around the yard were I got it stuck. I found out the hubs still work!!!

This looks like a good project! I am surprised no one else has followed. Good on ya for getting her started. That says a lot about diesels and this motor in particular.

Yea I'm excited, trying not to rush anything. This past weekend I started gutting both trucks on the inside. I plan on swapping the whole interior out of the xlt into the dually so I started with what I figured would be the hardest part. The dash, with that said the whole process went fairly quickly and easy less for trying to line the dash up and start the bolts by myself. After it was in I threw the steering Column in and fired it up. I noticed three things off the bat. The fuse for the wipers blew immediately, the steering wheel wouldn't turn and I have no fuel pedal. My immediate concern was the lack of pedal. I haven't had a chance to diagnose it but from what I've been reading the newer truck has a different placement for the tps as far as the pins are concerned. Once I figure that out Ill move on to the wipers and column. Some pics from the weekend94 Dually PSD-imageuploadedbyautoguide1373305921.063103.jpg94 Dually PSD-imageuploadedbyautoguide1373305929.037396.jpg94 Dually PSD-imageuploadedbyautoguide1373305939.554221.jpg94 Dually PSD-imageuploadedbyautoguide1373305947.753944.jpg94 Dually PSD-imageuploadedbyautoguide1373305954.590844.jpg
