Re: 1980 FORD F100

Not much happening on my project this week. Most of the parts are back from powder coating. Now we can mock up the new Radiator to get mounting brackets made. Then only can we test fit the motor to see how far forward we can bring it for the C6 trans to clear the bottom edge of the firewall. http://...

Re: 1980 FORD F100

Oom Willie Nel is tackling the transmission install job.

Re: 1980 FORD F100

Freshly reconditioned C6 Transmission. Quite a job polishing 30+ years of grime away to get a nice shiny finish. http://i1382.photobucket.com/albums/ah272/riaanofct/Recontrans_zpsf620a820.jpg http://i1382.photobucket.com/albums/ah272/riaanofct/Recontrans02_zps9454e61e.jpg http://i1382.photobucket.co...
