Post by DanDizzo » 3 years ago

I've been building this 1946 Ford 1 Ton for a while and figure it's time to share.
It is Powered by a LD28 with a 5 speed manual.
I flipped the frame to lower it a lot.
I still need;
Brakes
Steering
Seats
Floor
Controls lights. Let me know what you think.

LD28 pulled out of someone's Ford Ranger project, (they didn't complete), for my 1946 Ford 1-Ton Rat Rod project

It's wild to look at my last posts and see how far i've come on the truck.
Here is how it sits now. Drive-able, but needs some minor suspension tweaks.
Runs great, other than a starvation for fuel once and a while.. Thoughts?
let me know what you guys think!

Looks good. And, with all that black smoke it can produce even better.
Fuel starvation ,,,,,, usual suspects......plugged filter, sucking air someplace .
