Started re-assembly tonight. Got the brake assemblies all mounted up tonight, and just need to start on the lines tomorrow.









These calipers are freakin huge






Rear brakes.

Where abouts in Trenton are you? I've seen a couple of your bad ass toys, and if you ever need a hand wrenching (or more specific, someone to drink your beer while you're wrenching), let me know. I'm basically at Fort St and Pennsylvania in Southgate, so I'm right up the road. Working on somebody elses stuff would probably satisfy my craving to get a new offroad toy too.

Picked up all the fittings and hard line for the brakes system tonight. Hope to get started on them tomorrow afternoon.
Need to find out what lines go where on the proportioning valve, and the master cylinder.
Anyone have any ideas? Or a link to a diagram? I deleted the ABS.

This is all I have. As much as I try to document the dissassembly of something, I never take the correct pictures. The large one, nearest the camera, is for the rears.

Thanks.
You wouldnt happen to know if an ABS proprtioning valve is the same as a Non-ABS? My valve only has two outputs, but does look like it has a plug in the back of the valve. I'm guessing because it went into the ABS module, it would only have two lines. It looks like yours has two outputs for the front lines, and the one for the rear lines.

How come everytime I am about to finish something, I break a tool, or something just before I'm able to finish the task at hand. I hate having to wait on shit anymore. Busted the damn 3/16th flaring die with only one line to go. Now I have to wait on the worlds slowest Snap-On guy to get my stuff replaced. Uggghhhhh. If he even stops at our shop this week.

Well thanks to the worlds slowest Snap-On guy, I got my die for my flaring tool, so finally got the brakes all tied up. Cant bieleve it actually worked right off the bat. Did the mod to the proportioning valve, and bled everything out. Seems to work good, but I can only get up to about 35mph in my driveway I'll find out more once I'm able to get it out on the road, and really work the brakes.



Sometimes I think it would just be eaiser to just buy all the brackets your going to need for a job, than spend hours making stupid little stuff like this. These will get mounted on the rear truss to support the brake lines.

Been sick all week, and have'nt gotten much done. The driveshafts arrived this afternoon, so I made my way out to the garage to install them, and button up the interior....Or whats left of the interior.





Got the Hi-Lift mounted, and the belts installed



I went thru alot of trouble to keep this center counsel.....Damn, what a pain in the ass this was to get it to fit between the seat, and get it over the shifters. I had it twisted into a pretzel, and I'm suprized it didnt bust into a thousand pieces. Needless to say, I do not want to ever have to remove it.

Took some final measurements for the rear bump stops. See if you can find the WTF moment in the second photo. I damn near dropped the camera when I noticed it.






Drove it out of the garage for the first time today, under its own power, and did a litle driveway crawlin. Took a few pics before it gets moth balled for the winter. I need to catch up on some other projects around the house.













And guess thats it folks.

Nice save on not dumping your cherry picker over.....looks like it was tipping in the first pic too.

Yeah funny thing is, when I started puming it up I had no intentions on taking pictures. But got it up there, stood back, and said......meh, let me grab my camera. I was gone in the house for like 3 minutes, not aware of the pending doom in the driveway. And thru all that, I still never got to measure for the damn bumps.
