I have a book somewhere that really gets into the details of the older ford stuff but I can't find it. I did find some other stuff in the bottom of my tool box while I was looking for it including a 5 dollar bill

Up on the hoist, gonna run some brake lines this morning.

looks to have some kind of locker in the rear by turning the axles, clicks when turning the wheels independant and locks up when turning the pinion.

May need a limit strap in the front, but the driveshaft does not seem to bind at full drop.

He said the back and front had a locker. It didn't act like it though when turning the wheels.
I thought I was lied to after I took it off the truck.
We now know the front is l/s. I wonder what the back has?

It is all we use now, won't rust like the parts store stuff and easy to work with and made in the USA.

We get it thru Rowerdink but here is the web-site for anyone interested.

I even bought thier flare tool, can do a flare in about 30 seconds or less and looks 10x better than a normal tool.

Got the rest of the lines run and bleed, I have not driven it but pedal feels good.

Need to pull a drum to free up an adjuster.
