    Thank you sir, I am enjoying it. Just wish I had more solid blocks of time to work on it versus and hour here and there. I need to get a day with the pressure washer and sandblaster. Found out today that the media in the blaster is a bit wet, so it immediately plugged up the valve below. This thing hasn't been used in a good 5 years so we emptied it and are in the process of blowing it out and drying it out.

    I'm not going to go crazy prepping everything and painting right now, will only be doing parts I am removing. I really want this truck drive-able for the 2020 season.

    That is very good work. Problem now will be much like working on a house. Make one thing all nice , pretty and clean and when you finally finish you stand back to admire all your hard work. Then something magical happens. Your eyes start to change their focus and that's when you suddenly realize something. Everything next to it looks like a huge pile of crap now. :laugh:

    Yes mine snowballed from just cleaning it up to a frame off very quickly because if you are going to do it you might as well do it right the first time. Now I have rebuilt everything from the engine, trans transfer case to the hubs. its taken a two years now but I know everything is right and wont need to be done again.

    Mission creep. I’ve found only one antidote to it, and that’s lack of money.

    Today's hour long progress session. Really sucks with such short time blocks but I am trying to make the most of this thing being at work and about 40 minutes from my house.

    Just some scraping of concrete off the passenger knuckle and beginning to prep the drivers side knuckle for scraping. We will be doing some sand blasting and pressure washing for the final cleaning:

    After I get the drivers knuckle scraped I will be attempting to remove the carrier. Hopefully without a case spreader, but we will see:

    Back at it, for a minute.

    Bulk debris cleaning continues:

    Looks like a cobb-job with a hose clamp!:

    Also kinda surprised how close that cross-over for the y-pipe is to the oil pan.

    Coming along nicely. As expected everything looks to be in great condition. That axle definitely started out black. Do you plan on dropping the axle to paint it?

    I think everything I have seen so far really confirms this truck was maintained (fluids) and most likely only has 4,600 miles on it. The inside of the case in in superb condition, best I have ever seen even on newer vehicles. I think my intentions right now are to get this thing driving with the minimal possible and then return back to the slate and start fine tuning things such as paint. I will be converting everything to some type of chassis black (prefer satin). For now I will paint the knuckles black, pumpkin cover, etc but the main part of the axle will remain mis-matched red. Really trying to get some enjoyment and a running driving truck vs. a stationary project for an extended period. But we will revisit this.

    The carrier had me stumped for sure. It was tight, however an old trick I found on youtube was to stuff a rag into the ring/pinion and turn the drvieshaft to force them apart. It worked enough to get me some space to pry the carrier out the rest of the way. A bit concerned with how this thing is going to go back in. I also labelled the caps.

    That sounds like a really good plan. I once tore into my T-All far enough that it was disabled. It stayed that way for a couple years. After getting it back together I decided not to do that again. I like to drive it too much.

    Tiny bit of progress, waiting for the inner axle seals to arrive tomorrow.

    I totally didn't realize IH put a drain plug on the underside of the case. Great ingenuity. Of course the threads are bunged from a jack I assume:
    20191202_061334.jpg

    Cleaned out the case with Brake-kleen and hit the gasket surface with a sander: 20191202_063327.jpg

    Started cleaning up the cover, might have a go around with the sand blaster on it:

    I bought some Rustoleum satin for the chassis parts that I will be repainting while they are off. Of course forgot it at home today. I still need to pick up some IH red for the drive flanges and spindles. Trying to set off the black wheels.

    My new inner axle seals were supposed to be here yesterday, but never showed up. Back to wire wheeling and spray painting:

    Starting to look for fluids for the front axle. Looks like per my bed-pan I drained about 3-quarts out out the differential. Plan on going to NAPA sometime this week to find a SAE 90 GL-5 or 80/90 GL-5 depending on availability. I am also contemplating using IHPA's knuckle lube (part grease, part oil) or going with John Deere Corn Head grease as others have done. Per Torque King each knuckle should be filled with 16 ounces, and I will obviously be ordering the knuckle seals from TK as I can't find any other option.

    The seals came in. Measured the O.D.'s to double check: Old Seals ~2.995'', New seal approximately 3.005''. Went in like gloves, I put a thin layer of Permatex #2 on the exterior pressed surfaces of each prior to getting them in. Put some old oil on the seal surface for now until I have the new fresh oil in hand. Passenger side first, then drivers allowing additional control in the smaller tube with my 3/4'' drive and 2 & 1/16'' socket ram-rod setup

    Started today by cleaning up some more parts:
    20191206_060238.jpg

    Hmm, some stripped threads I didn't notice upon disassembly? Noted for re-assembly:
    20191206_060250.jpg

    Carrier is seated via alternating a wooden board between each side sliding it back evenly, currently the straps are not tightened down as my manual is home with the specs. Not quite as tight as I would hope (meshing with ring gear to pinion). There is a little slop between them that you can feel when hand rotating but very small (maybe the bearing caps will mitigate upon correct torque?). I cant remember if this was like that upon disassembly. Eventually I will have my buddy redo the pinion so this will be addressed next summer.
    20191206_071155.jpg

    Checking the brake lines for size as I will be making new ones. Looking for a new brake flaring tool (lots of cussing the last time I used my Harbor Freight model). Thinking of the Titan for 3/16 line only or the Rigid. I would love the Eastwood or Mastercool model but that is just out of my price range for intended use.

    Nice. Reassembly is going well. What makes you think the pinion needs work? My guess is that it will be fine after complete install. I wonder the same on the brake line. Other than wanting it to look new or obvious corrosion issues it should be usable.

    I think the pinion seal is leaking a bit, it's all covered in crud. Here in NYS for inspections they catch stuff like that all the time. Preparing myself for worst case scenario more than anything but I have no plans to address in the near future.

    The brake line is very rusted at the interface with the rubber line. I actually attempted removal on the rusted end and the brake line began to twist. So i abandoned and went to the wheel cylinder end. Most likely prepping myself again for worst case when i go to replace the soft lines that are torn.

    Everything is going extremely well with this so far. Impressed at the condition of everything making this possible.
