Looking good, gona have that engine in and running in not time. then time for diff regear.  what are we going to use to hold the diff to get the 150lb torque on the carrier caps?? also have to put some good torque on the pinion.  Marlin recommends the solid spacer for the elocker.  trail time is getting closer!!!

Solid spacers are always a good idea.  If you have a good vice mounted you can hold the differential to torque everything pretty good.

I usually use a BIG pair of channelocks with the third in a vice.

Thanks, and ya Putney does great work your buddies are probably very happy with their motors.

Looking good, gona have that engine in and running in not time. then time for diff regear.  what are we going to use to hold the diff to get the 150lb torque on the carrier caps?? also have to put some good torque on the pinion.  Marlin recommends the solid spacer for the elocker.  trail time is getting closer!!!

Thanks Eric...and ya i Should be rolling with steady progress once i get my oil galley plugs for the block tomorrow afternoon. And as far as the diff's go we can fab something up like ZUK has pictured in his write-ups and just bolt it to my work bench in the shop.. should just take a little fab time.

sounds good, I put my diff on the table, went and got the dial indicator and magnetic base today, it has .012 backlash right now which is too high i think, zuk recommends .007 or .008 in his builds. I need to fab a tool for the side caps to fit the 1/2" ratchet.

Where's all the progress, Whats taking so long??  You got that motor done yet??  I picked up a press so get those bearings and we can have a diff rebuild day!!  I almost have mine done, gona do one more paint check then I need to fab a tool to torque the carrier bearings. also cant find a in-lb torque wrench.

Hey Eric! Been pretty busy with work lately but did manage to get alot done on the motor .... nothing is stopping me from dropping this motor in within a couple days, except my time  available right now. Sounds good on the diffs though. After i drop the motor in i am immediately gonna work on my dual cases so i can put the tranny setup in all at once. then it will be rolling again...then im doing diffs... :crazy: How did the setup on your third go?? Pretty smooth?

Got my twin sticks and speedometer extention cable in today so nothing is stopping me from  finishing up my duals either. Just time and labor :flamer:

same here..time and money. the diffs going good, I had trouble at first with the pinion shim but sent zuk a message and he said the pinion race may not be in all the way and sure enough thats what it was, fixed that and put back in the bigger shim and the paint came out nice. Yours will go faster now that I know how too do it.  need to make the tool. dont forget to get the solid spacers for the diffs too. see ya sunday maybe? laterz

got a few random pictures of the shiney motor in its home...









 Motor is in so i started the process of putting in my 4.70's and dual transfer case set-up together. IF ANYBODY HAS ANY LITTLE TIPS OR TRICKS FEEL FREE TO CHIME IN.... Here is a few pics

Forward Transfer case off of the G52


1 forward shift t-case (crawl box) and 1 top shift t-case(rear case to put 4.70's and twin sticks) on the bench ready to dissect....

lookin good mike. when you done with the cherry picker just let me know when you want to take it back to my dads.  that run is somewhere below shaverlake. not sure exactly, you eant be ready yet.  I want to put it in yesterday but just need to wach the funds. still looking for things little by little. axle is almost complete. next is to weld on spring hangers and build some RUF springs for the front and get some f150 springs for the rear.  I think I am going to wait till next season to do the SAS so i can get another Elocker.
