Hi Tbird, that explains a lot. Although that bolt is pretty tight, still "strange" that they rely on that bolt only.

Doing the timing on these DOHC engines was worrying me the most. After reading all info on the forums and the Service Manual decided that it actually wasn't too bad to do. As long as you follow the...

Hi to all, it has been a while since my last update.... Sorry for that....
The engine was running ok when i drove the MKVIII from Holland to Norway, except for the tensioner noise at startup and...

Hi Tbird, thanks for your reply.
Think my first step will be to check for leaks, hopefully all good as its been completely rebuild with all new gaskets. Not sure if i am going to get the...

Tbird, thanks for your reply.
Going by your reply on the IAC, the engine should NOT stall when the IAC is disconnected (providing there is no vacuum leak somewhere)? It idles around 750 and does...

Mounting the fuse panel under the dash, For some reason the instructions called for using the existing bolts holes in the firewall, which would mean the fuse panel would be mounted on its side........

Finally start doing some clean work..... Bought Dynamat for the cab and new wiring harness from American Autowire. It comes with all switches and sockets and using the original Ford colours....

Next project is the inside of the cab. Had to weld a couple of spots with new patch panels but nothing major.
02-13-2018, 08:42 AM
That car looks beautiful, good luck with the build!
Love to do a Coyote engine and newer tranny one day, if i can get one cheap enough in Europe...

On to paint. I have painted the frame with RustOleum grey Primer first and used seam sealer to make all the welds smooth and prevent any water getting in and cause rust....

As i was working on the wiring loom (at night), started finishing off the IFS on the inside of the wheel well. Mainly the areas where the IFS comes together with the cab, wanted it to be strong...

Thanks man! This forum has provided me with all the info so figured i would give something back. It's also fun for me to look back at the pics, must have been crazy to take on a project like this!...
02-10-2018, 01:13 AM
That machine looks great!
I checked my '93 shop manual, got some pics below from the cooling system. The inlet is on the bottom "Driver Side" where the oil filter housing is.

Thanks for the compliment man! I must admit that i am a bit proud of what i have done so far. Have worked on cars before but not a project like this.... That's why i started my...

@TellerX1 (or anybody else reading this!)
You mentioned a misfire in the beginning, not sure when that happened... Could you tell me around when in the video?!
02-05-2018, 07:10 AM
Thanks for your reply. Sure hope its a lifter.... Am ordering 2 lifters so hopefully it will be fixed after. I'll try the tool and see if i need to modify it, thanks for the heads-up!
02-05-2018, 01:18 AM
Thanks for your reply on this. My initial thought was valve train also, especially because i took it all apart and installed new lifters. Did use assembly lube on the cam journals...

Maybe some of you guys have ready seen my build thread on here, have a question regarding a noise when running.
Last November, was able to start the engine for the first time after (partially)...

On to the next phase, the wiring. I think its the one thing most people are uncertain with on what to do and where to start. I have read all posts on here and found all the info i needed. I...

Time to get some new sheet metal, get the frame, IFS and cab looking like it was done in the factory.... As i am welding the ifs to the cab, i remove the cab rubber mounts and installed bolts with...
02-03-2018, 01:16 AM
To strengthen the frame, used 50*50*3mm box section inside the frame rails.
02-02-2018, 08:19 AM
Time to update the thread again!
As seen in the first couple of pictures, i am using the MKVIII IFS also. Looked at doing a CV IFS but these things are not for sale here in Norway and not much in...

Hi Charlie, sorry for my late reply. Yes, i think its about 3 - 4 inches. The cab is about 4 inches of the ground at lowest. I am finishing up the Accuair this week so it will be on the ground, will...

Cleaned up the frame a bit for painting, found some extra spots (corners) were i welded some extra steel in. Also welded M10 thread bar in the rear, to use for the fuel tank straps.
12-09-2017, 09:29 AM
As i cut the old original cross-brace out, welded in a new one and used it for the mounts for the battery box and Airride compressor box.
12-09-2017, 09:08 AM
Time to box the frame, used 3mm sheetmetal. Used pages of sanding paper and duct-tape to make the templates.
12-09-2017, 08:51 AM
Time to get started on the rear IRS subframe mounts. Just making sure first that the diff was aligned properly before starting.
Earlier i had bought an manual Airride kit with 2...

After both front mounts were in place, started to shorten the frame as mine was a long bed. Have thought long about this, maybe leaving the truck as a long bed.... But ultimately decided to make it a...

The truck was easy to take apart, but removing the front suspension and coil buckets and mounts, that took some time. Not kidding when i say that i have used up over a 1000 small 1 mm 8" grinding...

Removed the exhaust, drive shaft and petrol tank before cutting up the front. The idea was to cut the car in half at the firewall, so i could "wheel" the whole from end incl engine and tranny to the...
