building that axle sure hasn't happened yet.

I think a new slave will fix the clutch issues. Gotta do that.
Want to support the radiator more better for durability in AOAA race. those are really the only known issues I can think of - aside from desire to put more compression in the front shocks.

New slave installed and gravity bled. Feels good around the lot.

Exhaust hanger installed. Trans mount and radius arm crossmembers both ridiculously tweaked and replaced by dom. Trans was rotting out. Radius arm too tweaked to get the trans over it. Hopefully there’s enough engagement on the radius arms to last. Otherwise the brackets are replaceable.

Washed. Topped off clutch resi. May try to bleed that some onsite. Still needs tire pressures set, and fuel.

Otherwise might be ready.

Still severe clearance issues getting the trans out. New crossmember should have had a kink.

Destroyed newish o2 sensor after anger occurred. It didn’t want to come out.

Flywheel and flex plate have hot spots but zero wear. Clutch disc is just melted on both sides.

Here’s where the clutch smoke came out




Glazed disc




Flywheel and pressure plate look new aside from a couple warms spots. Fingers look fine. It’s an auto adjust clutch, I’ll reset that and just throw a new disc in it.

Driver bj click is the camber adjuster backing out. Second time.

Rotors are live hubs. Pain in the ass. Done after like 3-4 hr. I greased to bearings. Otherwise it woulda been 2. Still need to swap pads. I think I did a pad slap one already. They’re tick but inners are grooved to shit and not fully contacting.

Never fails. Lost vital part. Clip that holds the line into the slave.

Can’t find listing for replacement clip. Gonna see if safety wire will retain it. Uugh.

The retaining c clip on this type is what I need. Prob have to just buy one tomorrow to get it, and see if I can get a replacement clip from Precision directly to have a useful spare or return.

I bet I left it half seated in the trans and it fell out or went flying wheel horsing the trans out or in. It really doesn’t fit over my new crossmember. Magnet sweep of shop didn’t find it.

Ford 7.5” duty cycle exceeded. I’m certain the c clip is holding that tube in the housing. We noticed it was bent before I pulled it out of the truck, now I know it’s done and I have to assemble that 8.8 I have waiting for it.
