1995 4.9L from F-150, UN-rebuilt, completely transplanted twice, including computer, air filter, y-pipe, & all accessories. 130A alternator, 1996 Bronco gas tank & pump. K&N drop-in.
1978 F-250 NP-435; '93 BW1356 clocked; reman rear d'shaft; rebuilt front d'shaft; '96 Bronco D44IFS with 3.07 open diff; rebuilt Ford 8.8" 3.08 open; stock F&R antisway bars & Energy polyurethane bushings all around.
It has been completely rebuilt from the ground up for the 2nd time now. Most of the body & frame are '93, the tailgate is a '96, the door mirrors are heavily modified with LEDs, and the camper shell is a '96 with a '94 Explorer roof rack & '82 sliding windows. The front shoulder belts & rear seat are the original '83 parts, but the front seats are '97 Econoline power captain's chairs with heat. The instrument cluster & wiring harnesses have been heavily modified so the factory fuel reset light works, and a semi-factory low fuel light has been added. I've added AutoLamps, AutoDimming Brights, RKE, one-touch both directions for all windows, an auto-dimming compass rear-view mirror, dual visors, dual spotlight wiring, always-on PW, OBA. The CB & radar detector are hard-wired. Planned mods include a sunroof & articulated doors. The bumpers are my own design (mostly hand-built). The front includes factory trim, 2 storage compartments, 3 recovery points, a removable fold-down grille guard, & a Ramsey RE12000. The rear bumper has an integral hitch receiver & 3 locking storage boxes.

52Clutch5.JPG 7 hits | 111.89 KB | Posted: 10/25/14 After cutting the ring to the right circumference, I installed it. Fortunately, it's too thick, so I had to use a stack of washers & the nut to pull the shaft into the bushing. This should keep it extra-tight for a long time. But since it's Teflon...
52Clutch4.JPG 6 hits | 116.89 KB | Posted: 10/25/14 I had a piece of Teflon left over from another project, so I cut a strip and formed it into a ring using a hose clamp & a heat gun.
52Clutch3.JPG 4 hits | 119.76 KB | Posted: 10/25/14 I assumed the shaft had worn into the bracket, but it was just this bushing. Since I don't have a replacement, and I didn't feel like leaving the truck undriveable, I decided to make one.
52Clutch2.JPG 4 hits | 117.36 KB | Posted: 10/25/14 Even though this pedal bracket is the improved design with a thicker wear plate, there was still a lot of movement at the lever end of the shaft.
52Clutch1.JPG 5 hits | 119.09 KB | Posted: 10/25/14 The clutch MC pushrod kept sliding off the lever, so I pulled the pedals out to find the problem.
Visible at the top R, just above the brake pedal, is the box for the Midland CB handset hanging on the dash.

IF THE IMAGE IS TOO SMALL, click it.
The FDM connector shown is for '94-96; '90-93 use the older connector (WPT454) that mounts directly to the FDM plate.
Replacing the actuators is a PITA, even though the parts are cheap & easy-to-find at parts stores for ~$20ea. Call your local used car lots & independent repair shops for the number of a local steering column specialis...
