Around here doing a set of iron heads up is 3/4+ of that price. I think I'm having machine work done in the wrong part of the country LoL. Although that shop probably wouldn't approve of me wandering in at 7:30 in the evening and throwing a head on the seat machine and going to town!

I bet now that you've got it fired up you'll be itching to get it far enough along to go for a ride around the block.


ya, i was blinking and thinking for a moment when he quoted me price. i dropperd off my core and my cam stuff, and an old dingy Edelbrock performer intake I had laying around, waited 2 weeks then paid the man. theyve been around for a longtime, I'm guessing they have a few tricks up their sleeve.

And yes I am absolutely itching to get my truck back on the street! :roll:

Doing a little fence project in the back yard, needed to grab some material on Saturday from the Home Depot.

Picked up my new frame finally. Pay no attention to the cab sitting on it-- was for mockup purposes only.

Did you have to tell the counter lady at UHaul you were only going to put a Honda on the trailer to get them to rent it?

Frame looks like it's in nice shape.

Had to tell lady I was pulling a Jeep. :lol: :lol: I guess you aren't allowed to tow a crewcab F-250 with a crewcab F-250.

Plan is to use the frame to put together complete new rolling chassis, then just swap the body over. I need to keep my truck (in its current configuration) on the road as long as possible.

New frame will have complete new drivetrain, new fuel system, axles, drivelines, and wheels/tires -- all before I lift the body off my 74. New frame is a 78 with wider rear section -- that way I can have big rear mount tank. My bed floor will need some work for the swap also so I can keep gooseneck brackets.

Still debating which steering box to use -- 78/79 F-250 or F-150. The half ton unit mounts outside frame which may give more room under hood.

You're putting the 5.0 in this one? Depending on how low you want to mount it the 78-79 box shouldn't be an issue. But the 150 boxes are plentiful and it would eliminate the possibility of interference.

Looking forward to seeing the body go on with the Coyote.

I suppose if someone in the 70's saw a crewcab with a Coyote in it they'd think it's space age stuff, but going to mars? That might be a little bit of a stretch.

Looks good. Are you going to make the sheet metal fit around the engine or test fit the cab and move the engine around? Or did I miss that in another thread? I admit I'm a little slow sometime!
