Lucky i've kept this thread up to date....................
This post is kind of short and to the point update that has been cut and pasted from a different forum.

Spent some money.

74 square feet of dynamat extreme http://www.dynamat.com/products_automot ... treme.html
swivel hub kits, front and rear wheel bearings, axle seals, pinion seals.
intake manifold gasket
water housing gaskets and seals.
Autometer 2 1/6 oil pressure gauge and cup
Longer braided brake lines.
front brake rotors and caliper kits with new pistons
front shaft uni joints

That was $1600ish blow to the bank balance.

Now I need to spend some weekends working on the s**t.

IT'S ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Friday 2/3/12
I've got until easter holiday to have all the swap done and have the new truck registered and read to go. (have a camping trip planned)
I'll ad some photos along the way, Including the reason why it's getting now with such little time.
Image
Image
Image



Here are the reasons for the new body.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Sat 3/3/12
Got to work at 8am went home at 11:30

This is what I got done.

Engine out.
Image
Image


started on the rear end swap. (brakes, springs, shocks)
OUT
Image
Image

IN
Image



And this is why i'm going it now and not after easter.
Image
That broken bolt goes through to the timing housing, and it's rusted solid and snapped off.
The front of the engine needs to come off to fix it.
Only takes a lazy 2 hours to have the engine out, So I figured bugger bending over the bullbar to do it.
Then I thought If it's coming out, be stuffed if it going back in and then coming out again in 6 weeks time.

Tuesday 6th
Rear suspension and brakes completed.

Tow bar and gas tank mounts removed.

Wednesday 7th
Exhaust system out, LPG lines out, under bonnet gas gear out.
Dump pipe cut out of the old turbo exhaust so I can reuse the V band, Hmm just realised I need to build a new exhaust system.

Safari Tuff clutch is on its way.

Saturday 10th
CVs removed cleaned and repacked. Swivel hubs stripped, cleaned, new bearings and seals, new wheel bearings and brake rotors.
The short side is waiting for a speedy sleeve for the inner axle seal. Bought some today, but by the time I got that far and found out the sleeves were to small the bearing place was closed.


Thanks goes out to josh for standing in front of the parts washer for half the morning cleaning out old bearing and CV grease. Also for taking out both the steering boxes and fluid lines and for getting a good start on pulling the front end out of the old truck.


Plans for the next few days.
Going back into work tomorrow to clean up. (mostly to avoid a Tupperware party)
Monday night. Rebuild both the front brake calipers, speedy sleeve the short side axle, and assemble the rest of that side.
Tuesday night. drop the gearbox out of the old truck.
Wednesday night. drop the rest of the front end out and get the springs and radius arms into the new truck.

busy busy man, was that the carby engine or injected? i have a mate with a carby gq and his brother who is also a mate has the injected, and his cousin has a diesel, the diesel one gets flogged more than all of them and holds up much better, both petrol ones are dual fuel

that would be a carby petrol. these old girls in Diesel love a turbo! We have built at least 3 of these (family and friends)- They Rattle, Their Basic- But They never stop! 5" lift and some muddies, shim the rear (if not locked)- and they will go anywhere!!

also one of them fitted the later model diff gears as they are lower ratio and because its a sludgomatic it makes it much better on fuel and in the bush

4.2 diesel with an aftermarket turbo.

Busy is no joke. I've also had the engine out of an 80 series landcruiser to replace a damaged crank shaft. there's 20 hours in that one. along with the engine out of an AU ute for a rebuild (one of the twins) I got to work at 6:30am and left at 6:45pm today and have been pretty much 7-7 for the last two weeks.

my mate turbo'd his gq diesel patrol a while back and it sounded like a mack truck! admittedly he does half a*** jobs and the dumpy finished at the start of the passenger door and no exhaust was on the rest of the car lol,i also realised another one of my mates turned his into a ute over the past week. i have heaps of mates with these when i think about it, also have a few with land rovers and they arent worth speaking highly of :roll:

Front springs changed over and top shock mounts done.

Had to raise the top mounts my 9cm. VS: The old OME 2 lift shocks the new ones are 12cm longer at full extension and only 5cm longer at full compression.
We cut the bottom off one pair and the top off the other pair and joined what was left. It's basically been setup so that it's on the bump stops with about 5cm of shock travel, and at full extension on the hoist the shock 'just' retains the spring. Effectively while off road the shock will never be the limiting factor.

Next the radius arms and all the steering rods and box..................
