95 F350 Rebuild

So I'm starting this tread to cover the rebuild of a 95 F350 I inherited two years ago when my dad pasted away.

So a little history of this truck. I'm a mechanic at a shop that I started at a little over 8 years ago. At the time this truck belonged to the bosses Father. So because of his I have all the service history back to 92,000 miles. It was well cared for. Oil changes ever 3000 mile and any repair needed was done.

About 2011 My Dad bought the truck from my bosses Dad. At the time i gave him a hard time cause he enjoyed Driving it and I couldn't see spending that much on fuel. Since he died i was forced out of my cheap little car into a durango. I decided i hated the durango so started driving the truck and it got better fuel econmy then the durango.

Last Aug I took the truck to texas to get a car. While on the trip my rear tank started leaking and after i got back found out my vacuum pump was failing during the trip. And I still avg 13 to 14 MPG. Which is down From a fall trip to Texas Motor Speed in 2011 where we got around 17 pulling a Camper.

So Now the Truck Has 349,000 Miles on it. And thanks to the oil change intervals it still has the original injectors, oil cooler and turbo.

Now Since I got it i upgraded the stock exhaust with a 3" down pipe and 4" exhaust. And a set of stock size XD Rockstar wheels.

So the truck came with a S5-42 in it which is tired and the heavy duty clutch that is required for it is hard to hold with a bad knee I wont be able t keep it a manual. So i had bought a 97 obs that was wreaked by a customer for another project. That project feel thru so I sold the motor but kept the remaned E4OD. Now I don't trust Ford so i went in to the trans and I am glad I did. Had stock 4 pinion carriers which I replaced with 6 pinion steel carriers and the the overdrive spring snap ring was broken and waded up so it got replaced with an upgraded retainer.

So I have now have bought a cheap little junker car and have started the tear down.

Re: 95 F350 Rebuild

So The tear down is Getting there But work picked Back up So the work will slow down a little. My plans for the truck is fix some of the Mechanical. I have a replacement bed as it is badly needed as the pics will show in the future. I am pulling motor to work on down pipes and oil pan. Fix any oil leaks I can find. Hopefully some upgrades to come new injectors, fuel system, bigger tanks, E4OD so i can enjoy truck into future(bad knee and all). I am planning a raptor liner paint job(I suck at paint so best option). It will be a two tone with the original white in middle and Vista Blue metallic on top and bottom. So funds will determine how far i go.

Re: 95 F350 Rebuild

So I mention my trip to Texas last year(which made me fall in love with this truck). Yeah my Dads laughing at me now. At that time my rear tank failed on me. So started looking at options to replace it but that trip made me really want larger tanks so I searched out all my options for a rear tank and either did not like the price or did not like the size. So I had an old motor home out back that had two tanks on it man it would be great if I could make one of them fit. well out came the tape measure and sure enough it looked good. So removed one of the tanks and cut the mounts off and cleaned the tank on the inside(it was a gas engine). Now the filler neck was really fun since the fill was on the back of the tank. Took some exhaust pipe and made a custom filler neck using original neck parts. No while I have the bed off I am going to upgrade to large mouth filler necks and external vent(the tank is slow to fill takes about 10 to 15 min depending on pump. now on motor home the tank held 35 gallons but with the new neck and able to fill to top of tank it now hold almost 42 gallons(woo hoo). So when I took the bed off found my front tank is leaking(me and leaking tanks my rear tank leaked the burner car I bought to drive during this leaked fuel and now my front tank) the fuel gods hate me. So I found a Superduty tank not to far from me for 50 bucks so hope to go get it this weekend. then can upgrade the front. Will continue to update progress on my Baby.

Re: 95 F350 Rebuild

The Bronco 30+ gallon tank will fit too, although I'm sure you'd have to mod it a bit for diesel. Keep up the good work.

Yeah I looked into them but like I said price was one factor. Plus the tank I used is heavy built so the truck will rot away be for this tank will.

Re: 95 F350 Rebuild

So pulled Trans down and did the work to it. Started with an E4OD from a wreaked 97 F350 crew cab Long bed. As I said did many upgrades while in there including a new Torque converter for better lock up. And yes I did not want to spend the money on proper compression tool and at 245am I didn't want to try and fab one. so steel beam rock. As you can see it was renewal by ford so was not expecting to find it as worn as it was inside. All clutches and steels replaced carriers upgraded from weak aluminum 4 pinion to strong steel 6 pinion carriers. everything air checked after I went back in and fix the center support. the Three bolts were not torqued properly thus the unexpected wear.

Re: 95 F350 Rebuild

So few more pics. Also mock up of my new shifter. It is out of an 06 or 07 explorer. It will end up with a custom center console around it.
