|#846 - Cummins Swap|
|Author: andy1canada (Show all albums)|
Going to give this another try as my first attempt didn't go so well on the 'Diner-conversion' thread (Will update/edit that soon).
Started my Cummins swap by pulling off the bumper; only took better part of an hour. That sucker is HEAVY! Better part of a 100 lbs I bet. Will be looking to knock substantial weight off that baby while still retaining a 5000 lb towing standard.
This will take a while as it will unfold as time and resources permit, so please be patient.
More pics and hopefully some videos (FMC-TV) to follow.
ALMOST DEAD-NUTS ON 6" OUTSIDE TO OUTSIDE OF THE BEARING CAPS.
THIS CURSORY MEASUREMENT IS WITH THE YOKE SET AT ABOUT 1/2 WAY OF ITS TRAVEL. PRETTY SURE THESE ARE BIGGER THAN THE FMC UNITS. NOTE: BOTH THE PROP-SHAFT AXLE STUBS AND THE PINION OUTPUT SHAFT ON THIS RS-15120 ARE THE SAME AS THE FMC UNITS ON THE ROCKWELL F140.
409-lbs as it hangs!
Before proceeding, double-check alignment. The big wood block the end of the trans is resting on is sitting on my motorcyle lift for vertical adjustment; meanwhile, the little ratchet strap in the upper right corner is wrapped around the tailshaft housing and served adequate for horizontal adjustment.
Port side here.
First, the TCM brackets get bolted in place. Starboard side here.
Ready to 'clamp-in-place' on the coach then tack-weld them exactly where they will live forevermore.
