This thing sits and has sat for a few months. I may have to use this to pull my Talon. The oil gets diluted in this thing super quick (rich fuel mixture) so I figured I would do an oil change.

Oriellys stinks so the only oil filter they had was a Wix XP. I'm not running synthetic (anymore) because I think the 460 has an internal issue. At the very least a bad distributor gear or a really sloppy timing chain. Either way I'm going to run it (if I move which I think I'm going to).

I went with cheap oil. And... an expensive oil filter. But it'll do.

Once I move, if I move the truck will be parked again, until I can pull the engine out. All it has to do is make it. (And pull my talon on a trailer).

Too bad you do not live closer to me as i have a connect on cheap(i mean cheap) syn blend oil for $20 a case. We run almost 500 miles a week so i started using that, only issue is that he only has 10w30 but last time i checked he had 1k plus cases. Filters i use either Hastings or private label wix from Rockauto, by the way thanks again for the coupon.

I would sure take you up on it. That's dirt cheap. 500 miles a week is mad. So is 1000 cases of oil! But hey, I can see it with those miles.

No problem on the coupon. Your very welcome friend!

Still have it. Drove it yesterday. I forget how much I like driving it.

Yeah Valvoline is about the best affordable oil in my opinion. And most parts stores have Wix.

It's under the knife right now. Front end is tore apart. Replacing upper and lower ball joints as well as all bearings and seals in the front end. It's at my fathers shop on the lift. Like old times.

I have a 1300+ mile journey to my new home in Jackson Wyoming the 31st of this month. Lots to do before then.

Taking pics but can't post them yet.

I have the front end buttoned together. It was a pain but necessary. So glad to have it behind me. All new bearings, seals etc. Also installed what are called "slingers" on the axle stub shafts. Will keep debris from entering the hub through the back of the knuckle. I can't wait to see how it drives.

Only thing I wish I would have known is that grease can freeze. They make whats called freezer grease for extremely cold climates. Until the summer when I can clean all the new Timken and Valvoline marine grease out I'll just leave the hubs locked in. Incase they freeeze.

Waiting on all new Moog problem-solver tie rod ends and and adjusting sleeves. Will install them Monday. This week we're replacing the engine mounts and the driver side floor board.

Will post pics when i get better service. Maybe next week.

Got the front end completed yesterday. All bearings, ball joints, tie rod ends and tie rod end sleeves.

And I've started on the engine mounts. The passenger side is already removed. Got it out last night. One of the nuts were loose and the mount was really spongy. Removing the driver side tonight it will be harder.


-

Bought a couple things for Wyoming.

A Kats handi-heat 300 watt magnetic block heater.

A Kats 36" 80 watt battery heater.

And a 2' heavy duty 3 to 1 extension cord with lighted ends to run both into a single outlet.

This made it much easier. Cutting the nuts off the upper ball joints.

Replacing the engine mounts.

Rivets holding bracket to frame. Used plasma cutter. Gouging technique. And grinder.








Driver side engine mount issue. Nut broke free to backing plate. Had to remove bracket from block (goes between block and mount) without removing the mount from the bracket. Took some thinking.




The fix for the nuts breaking free from the bracket between the block and the new mount.

Pictures from my 1300 mile 25 hour journey. Was a long journey in this. Glad it made it.

At least you got a nice journey across our beautiful country! All the elbow grease and hard work that you put into the Ford certainly shows. Made a 1300 mile trip flawlessly, great job man!

Awww, man, I miss those kinds of views. Great work on the truck! That twin beam front suspension is such a weird setup, like half IFS, half solid axle.
