Thank you ! To be honest I never had the time to post it on the forum with all the details, but will do it in the near future.Sweet looking quest!! what did you do for the rear suspension? Details on the build?
Sweet rig! That motor fits so well. I would love to see a build thread or even just a thread with pics and details.Thank you ! To be honest I never had the time to post it on the forum with all the details, but will do it in the near future.
Mine has a 12 bolt chevy rear end with four link suspension
This is a 31 spline explorer axle that i shortened to use a pair of passenger stock axles. I also turned up a pair of press on adapters that allow the stock axles to have press on big 9" bearings so that i can do away with the c clips because of the spool.

Your car is coming along great. I am building a 91/96 Dodge Dakota and just got a 8.8 for it. I am wanting to do the same thing to mine. Intrested in making another set of axle bearing adapters?

Man great job on the car. Speaking of the crown vic drive shaft. Can you list the part number for the 904 yolks conversion . I am going to use a crown vic drive shaft for my Dakota buildUpdate time:
Havent been able to work on the car much but ive gotten a few things done since the last post.
Rebuilt my homemade blowthrough carb with a billet baseplate and a pair of holley xp bowls, got the entire intake setup painted and mocked up.
While the rear end was out i modified the ladder bars to allow articulation of the top bar to get rid of binding while adjusting and it no longer has to be removed from the rear end to be adjusted.
With those finished i was able to get the rear end back into the chassis and everything bolted up.
Also got around to having my driveshaft balanced. It started out life as a crown vic drive shaft that i then shortened and used a conversion u joint to put the 904 yoke on it.
Thats about it for now.

Those are 1/16th npt plugs, previous owner had a dry direct port setup on it.
I can't tell you how many people I have recommended Oregon cam grinding to on this form and elsewhere. Instead of emailing or calling one of these big cam companies and getting one of their phone jockeys you actually get Ken himself there at the shop where the cam is being ground and he walks through old school and not only grinds them but races them as well...Camshaft showed up today, now its time to tear the short block down to get it cleaned and prepped for assembly.

Check again , no such thing as 1/16" pipe plugs , look like 1/8" to me ----------
Kick a$$ ride tho !!
