    4 speed Hydraulic Clutch Problem Resolved

    Hey guys, wanted to pass along some information for others looking at doing a v8 swap. When I did my 351w swap I used a T19 from a 84 F150 (T18, T19, and NP435 are all very similar transmissions and bellhousing do interchange) with the hydraulic clutch bellhousing. I've seen all over the...

    Low/No Oil Pressure 351w

    So I'm at my wits end here. I'm finishing up my motor swap and I've noticed my mechanical oil pressure gauge is showing no oil pressure. First thought was just some shit in the line from the swap. So the next though was loosen the gauge sender, so it would leak if it had pressure. Tried it but...

    Maybe some with some insight or experience can lend their 2 cents. My stock power steering pump has nipple and a block off plug right adjacent to the fill cap.

    For those that have swapped in 70s F150 coil buckets...

    ...how did you make the bucket sit flat on the drivers side with the power steering box bump? I'm about to start on this and any tips from personal experience would be great. Btw my Dana 44 is narrowed so I don't want to make the buckets hang out a lot on each side.

    Shades of Blue... Time to Repaint the Ranger

    I'm getting ready to repaint my 94 Ranger, and I was going to just redo the factory Lapis Blue. The guy that's going to paint it suggested that I change the shade of the blue slightly, said it will make a huge difference and help it stand out. So I have a couple ideas already, trying to see...
