Nice brakes!

i need to do brakes on my personal truck which is a 2wd version of yours, right down to the rusted cab corners and no parking brake.

been dreading it because i thought you had to pull the axle shafts like the old drums, but now it doesn't look too horrible. still wonder who got drunk and thought the drum brake inside a disk brake was a good idea.

as for cold start, i know i can turn on the key, wait for the clock to move one minute and it will usually start with about 15-20 seconds of cranking.
plugging it in doesn't help because some idiot backed out without checking to see if it was unplugged and yanked the heater cord hard enough i don't think it is working.

on the ZF6 trans, from what i have read, the whole input top shaft and gearset turns with the clutch engaged, shifting just locks the lower gear to the output shaft. At least that's how i read it.
when the truck is real cold and i start it up, i can actually hear the engine lug for a half second when i release the clutch after starting.
it also blips a tiny bit when i de-clutch untill the gear oil warms up after about 5-6 miles of driving.
it also runs like a super slow turd for about the first 2 miles, even with 5 minutes of idle before leaving. my truck is bone stock though.

I have never had an issue with the drum E-brake. I have had issues with the cable where it goes into the pedal assembly but other than adjusting the drum E-brake every so often I have not had to deal with it and I use it often being a manual trans. If the e-brake was part of the disc breaks it would make the cost of the caliper heigher and more of a pain to change. Maybe I am a loner but I like the design.

Nice grill. I like it. Need to do mine but I think I am going to do all of the grill. No chrome.

thanks, the chrome is going to be white when i get the time.

I put mustang brakes on my ranger and it has the parking brake built into the caliper, they are no harder to change than a normal caliper to me.

I mean im sure when I get it all replaced it will work fine since i have the 6 speed but it looks like it was not used at all and it just rotted away.

i have to do cables, hardware and new shoes for the parking brake

Got the old down pipe off


Then I had to take the trans crossmrmber out to drop the engine down to get the new pipe up to the turbo.

Started fitting pieces. And ran out of time since I have to sleep since I got class tomorrow

Gonna pick up my brakes and get the exhaust finished tomorrow.

Shouldn't have had to, just cut the old down pipe to get it out and the new dp slides right up there. And be sure to test your injectors COLD

Do you have a zf6? There was absolurket no way the stock was just sliding out. It goes through the cross member and the new one did the same.

And yes I already planned on that
