well its that time...:( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( triple b is gettin a tear down and rebuid. the plans...


today i start removing the frotn sheetmetal and doorsthen the blown motor comes out.the new 454 and rolling chassis then thursady nite she gets hauled out too 37 inch dakota's shop. there we will replace the front frame horns, new bumper, new full cage, new seats, new diff covers i made,new motor installed[36] [36] [36] all by the monday of this long weekend.[36]


then it comes back here for the paint and reassembly. my paint scheme is gonna resemble a WW2 P40 WARHAWK:D . complete with the shark mouth, bullet holes and pin up girls. than i can add marks for every truck i pull out. gonna get some vinyl made which is basically a black line with dots on either sifde of it. too mkae it look like a riveted panel.

wish me luck and stzy tuned... yo

oh yeah.. TRIPLE B will still be named TRIPLE B......instaed od Big BLUE BITCH....

she wil be Big Blocked Bitch.. yo[cheers]

Hey, I notice that two of your piston heads look carboned up while the other two are CLEAN.. did you just clean them off?

Looks good buddy, if you need anything of mine just let me know. You gonna need those headers?

Apathy
03-19-2008, 09:50 AM
Yes 30 over
Does not appear to be clearanced...

and if you ran it at 280 deg.. the cylinders will be Square (Square is a term used for cylinders that are no longer round).
But you can fix that with a Square Hone and a new ring set.

That block has not been clearanced, that is something that you do when you use a 400 crank in a 350 block to build a 383. The reason it is done is so the rods don't hit the block.

I know were you can get that grey epoxy air craft engine and tranny paint. Super tough if its put on right but fairly expensive like 150-200 a liter. Its primer grey but glossy. You can put in on any metal but titainium and it sticks. I did the tranny of my MG with it been stuck and looking good for 8 years now.

Avial should have it. If not I can see if I can get my hands on some expired or untracible paint.

right on man nice work all round, its going really fast, I have so many memories in that truck, remember having no breaks at davis "HANG ON DUDE":eek: , or silvester snow wheelin with no roof, breaking trail with your new boggers, i rode on a cooler and hung onto the roll cage. Remember being up all nite at postill may long and driving over to the beach side at sun rise, 5 30 or so in the morning, no wiper working on my side so i cant even see as your flying threw the trees. Or at davis in the heat of the summer , first time i ever heard iron maiden was in triple B , "RUN TO THE HILLS", as were putting down the trail to the other side, wow what good times. [cheers]

I used those styro foam kids play noodle things for the pool. There 2" or so hollow on the inside.You just have cut the side. Works good enough. Canadian tire even leaves them out side in a weak locked cage at night.

no yet.. gettin closer.. the 454 is gettin regasketed and cleaned up tonite..

nother question.. is grade 5 bolts ok too use as a body mount bolt?

Nutbar
04-01-2008, 07:41 AM
Grade 5 bolts are fine for body mounts in theory better than grade 8 in this app grade 5's are more flexable less brittle than grade 8's so 5's are less likely to snap in this condition of constant flex like a body bolt.
