I pulled the bed to tinker with the failing fuel pump. Im going to add a draw straw and return line. Lift pump on the 4bt is mounted on the back of the block and wont need the 12v hot wire...

The girlfriend cleaned her new tranny and we got it painted up...



Pulled the old 360, tranny, tcase all in one shot. Looked like a jet on take off lol

Just cut the one wire that that goes to the fuel pump leave the rest so that your fuel gauge will still work. You have a 4bt yet? Saw it on compd.

4bt is not to small for that truck. My complete stock engine moves my truck just fine. And if you want more power, you can easily make 250 hp with a 4bt giving it almost 100hp more than 5.9s came from factory. IMO the only advantage of a 12v is price. Good Luck with it.

My dash doesnt have a tach in it. I got a tach out of an IR roller and put it on my dash.

Was the 46rh you used in your swap already in the truck?
I also want to run new fuel lines from a draw straw setup. Would 3/8" line be ideal for the 4bt?

No the rh came out of a 91 350 with a 5.9 in it.
I used 3/8s line with a draw straw also.

Well I took the driveshafts out of my 1500 tcase (231)
The rear shaft's slip yoke slid right in the 241dld on the new 47rh, and the front shaft bolted up also. That saved me a mess trying to find 2500 shaft ends for the new setup.

32 teeth on the rear and four 7/16"? bolts on the front shaft.

Picking up some fuel line and see if the parts store has the transmission cooler line connectors I need.

Since I wont be towing, and will be using a lock up switch, Im going to try and get away with using my small 46re cooler. Ill get a temp sensor plugged in before I add the fluid

Update, didn't get much done tonight due to other things going on.. But I pulled the trans crossmember the rest of the way out and set it under the 47 to make sure it would fit. Painted the rest of the trans

I also got my 3/8" fuel line on the way along with another haynes manual. O Reillys employees what a joke....



Crossmember has slots for the mounting bolts which may come in handy for the 47 and its new driveshafts. Hopefully there will be room for small error in the measurements
