|Author: LCAC_Man (Show all albums)|
This album will cover the Duramax/Allison conversion(including dash cluster integration), installation of airbags to assist suspension, conversion of vacuum brakes to Hydroboost, replacement of Onan gas generator with a Onan/Cummins 5500LP, inverter/charger installation, dual roof a/c installation, and Bedroom reconfiguration that will add "pass-thru" storage.
fit check of the raditor, it's over 2" lower than it was originally which better centers it to the fan.
new passenger side radiator mount, this will be a bolt in mount, it will allow for the radiator to remain in place while the fan and shroud can be removed for accessory maintenance.
drivers side bolt in radiator mount, anchor nuts will be welded in the frame. Shroud will be modified to a two piece design allowing easy removal.
I have to admit, I completely ignored the "no welding or torch" warning when I plasma cut the top of it out this weekend..
the mud-dobbers must be relentless in Sedona...I've found their nest in everything!
Fuel pickup from the donor modified to the depth (20") of the FMC tank.
New magnaflow 3" turbo downpipe, will probably cut the bottom few inches off this and add a flex coupler so that I can rigid mount the rest of the exhaust
modified some the stock intake parts for a better transition piece
finished fabrication on the fan shroud and converted it to a split design so that I can remove it while leaving the radiator in place
welded the anchor nuts in the frame (both sides ) for the new dedicated radiator supports
modified the stock fuel tank to accept the donor truck fuel tank pickup
had 1/4" rings waterjet cut, larger one tapped for 1/4-20 hardware and welded to the tank, smaller ring retains the piece of the donor tank with the flange down tight
