Getting the Wheeling Fever
Very nice. I love my '94 with a 7MGE, this truck will scream with a 7mGTE!!

BTW I've heard that the "third head gasket",(swear the manual I read called it that),tends to leak over time causing oil to pool in each of the spark plug locations. Did you do anything to address this? I ended up unscrewing the three plugs and placing a oil plug gasket there along with the factory gasket and then re-tightening them.

Yep .. I used a Cometic Metal head gasket and ARP head studs , as well as the new tube gaskets .. I'm sure I used silicone on the tube seal tops as well , but honestly , I built the engine 5 years ago ..



prepping the inner rockers for the new body mounts .. I of course found rust <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" /> .. so now I have to fix that first .. I was really surprised , this cab was in awesome shape no rust at all , or so I thought .. just goes to show you , even if you think you have no rust .. you probabally do !!

undercoating wire wheeled off , and looking great

and cut out rust !!

so over the last week , I have been building my repair panels and today I was able to get them burnt in , rears as well

[Linked Image]

[Linked Image]

now with the rockers repaired , I was able to get the cab height finalized @ 9" from the rockers to the Ground . + I also started on the cab mounts
Because there are only going to be 4 mounts instead of 6 , I wanted to make sure there were going to be strong .
cut out some 3/16" plate and surrounded it with some tube
[Linked Image]

Tacked into place I will add some more supports later , when I turn the frame over .

[Linked Image]

1 more front frame mount tomorrow , then I can get on the front cab mount

and cab side mount

Bent up some 1/2" solid stock with the 3/16" plate . as well as a "fish plate" for the cab side , 1/2" stock actually goes threw the fish plate for a stronger "plug" weld , and a toyota stock body mount bushing , I now have the front mounted

[Linked Image]

[Linked Image]

and now the front of the cab is mounted
still have some supports and final welding to do when I can turn over the frame , but for now it's good to go

also .. the cab now has it final "stance"

[Linked Image]
