Update...

Update from a few weeks ago that I forgot to post.

I pulled the column and installed the manual pedal setup, I also stripped the 4l80e harness and ecm out and installed the "new" harness.

Got the 454 and NV4500 installed and also worked up a mount for my windstar fan setup. I still need to do some rewiring and hook up and fire up the engine. Now a few pics!

Been a while since I updated this. I have got some stuff done but really have not had a lot of time to mess with it.

Anyway, here is a rundown, I got my transmission crossmember, transmission hump cover from Ray, and I got my NP205 tail housing back from the machinist. It's kind of hard to see but this is the VSS that was installed in the NP205 extension housing.


This is the fitting where the speedo cable attached, plugs that are this size are hard to find so I cut the top off of the original speedo fitting and threaded the hole for a 1/2 bolt with a oil pan rubber washer under it.


I got the transfer case in and got the transmission crossmember installed, I mounted it inside the frame rails and it worked great, even lined up with the factory holes in the frame. The pics are bad because the sun was in a bad spot when i was under the truck and I didn't get very many pic.





Started working on ideas for my transfercase shifter bracket but I don't have any pics. The shifter bracket will look something like this.




And mount like this.


I was hoping to have it at least running before i left to come back to work but my super special/expensive transmission oil didn't arrive in time. I'm running Amsoil Manual Transmission & Transaxle Gear Lube 75W-90 It's not as expensive as the deal stuff and it says it works specifically with the Nv4500. So when i get back home around the first of October and my plan is to get this thing back on the road. I have a few things left like cutting out the trans hump and installing a removable one, finish my t-case shifter bracket, filling up the transmission with the above mentioned super special oil and getting the engine running. After that I have to get my rear drive shaft shortened and then I can test my clutch setup to see if I get full disengagement. Then a little exhaust work and she will at least be street-able again!

Nathan, that adapter worked out awesome, to bad it took me a year to install it... After I get this thing on the road I might have another small project when you get time, How thick can your new plasma table cut?...

Should be able to cut 5/8". Although I dont really care to fight with loading anything damn heavy if I can avoid it . I have been cutting quite a bit of 1/2" lately as well. 1/4" I can run it around 110 Ipm and have a clean cut with no crap to grind off.

Good to know, I am hoping it doesn't need to be any thicker then 1/2" but it maybe a while before I get to messing with it. I need to get this truck back on the road first!

So I was able to get some work done on the truck in between the rain we got and family obligations.

Got the 7.4liter fired up after having a heck of a time with the timing and trying to burn off all my facial hair... Started when the timing was 180 out, got that straightened out and got it to idle decent at about 12 btdc. When we connected the single wire for the ecm to adjust the timing it turned it to about 22 btdc and idled good. When the engine started i was releaved that my wiring had worked out because I had to repin some connectors.

I was able to function test the electric fans and the thermostatic switch and they worked out great. Also checked my VSS and it is working and my speedo is reading (who knows how close though..)

Also a small side project was my low cost shift knob for my np205 shifter, I like it!
