What motor is in the truck?  I found a crew cab, short narrow bed truck once with a slant 6.  It would have been rated as at least a 1 ton, probably 1 1/2 tons.  Just couldn't come up with the cash...

there was a 1964 2door 4x4 here (Batesville, AR) about 3 weeks ago at some little local dealer for $1000.  it was there maybe 6hrs and looked really really clean.  i saw it on the way to work and was gone by 2pm.  (like i _REALLY_ needed another vehicle to restore.  my 66 galaxie's engine is in enough pieces as it is!).  seeing this one makes me wish i'd been late to work that morning...lol

The engine is a 318 with 9000 miles on it after rebuild, or so I have been told.  Once I get it I can get a little bit more info as to the transmission, gearing and all that.

  So what would I need to do in order to remove the blocks?  Are they that bad to have in there?  I like the way the truck sits right now, so if I do take them out, what is the proper way of getting that much lift and will I have to change anything with the drivelines?  Sorry, I have had a couple projects in the past but no undercarriage work at all, newbie to this kind of stuff.  Old guys can learn new tricks to...

New springs arent that bad to install.  Should be pretty straightforward for you.  Also you can hit up another member, Jungle Jim.  He fabs up some awesome spring hangars.   One way or the other and you'll be in good shape.

I really like that rig you have!    ;D

All,

  Well the day finally came and the truck has made it to TN.  It took forever, the shipping company was having a hard time with it due to the size of it.  Well "The Dodge" finally made it to the house yesterday.  Here are some pics of her on the trailer.

The official countdown has begun, I started this process in July and due to the shipping company being a piece of Sh** I was unable to get the truck my last time at home.

  I now have seven days until I am headed home and driving the trcuk for the first time.  Seven and a wake up.

Yeah both of those ideas sound very cool, but I am lacking one important item to complete those....."The Greenbacks"...someday I am hoping to rid the beast of the 318 and move to a largre motor, but that is very far down the line.  For now I just want to get home and drive it.....Oh Yeah.....THREE TO GO....

I was meaning keep the 318, pull it, build it, and set it up. That'd be very cool for some reason that beast just screams for it.

When you lift one of these trucks you are opening a huge can of worms, I have 4 of these(w200 crews) trucks all crews and one is a d conveted to a w like yours.  There are no aftermarket lift springs offered for these trucks and most makers have incorect information listed on the scant data a few have on there websites.  The frame on the w200 is different from the W300's in that it is necked down right where the rear shackle flip goes, its never been determined if the 71 thru 85  Jungle shackle flip brackets are the same bolt pattern. Same with the spring hangers for both axles.  Another problem is the dana 44 is horrible about whipping your fingers when trying to make tight turns especially in mud ruts or rocky trails.  I started on a power steering conversion with a dana 60 install in the front to get crossover steering and hydra assist from PSC in Fort Worth Texas with a Ford 78 4x4 power steering ported gearbox, problem is nobody is close enuff to Jungle to get a sweptline w200 over to him to see what is interchangable from the newer stuff he has made so far and is installed on newer trucks.  I would think about buying new springs asap and shocks with Jungles flip kit and u bolt reverse stuff, the w200 has the u bolts upside down and hangs up on logs and rocks when taken offroad.  Jungle is the only person to step up and offer to make these, please get some measurements to him so he can make some for all of the other lurkers out there with the 61 to 70 w100's and w200s who need need springs and shackle flips and ubolt kits and new springs as well, I hope some day Jungle will figure out what spring is avail to use his new shackle flips and hangers for the 61 to 70 trucks.

I also looked at your leaf springs and they seem to not be sagging, all of my trucks were 100k miles at least when i got them, one thing I noticed is they all had worn out and loose spring eye bushings in the springs and in the hangers themselves, the short wheelbase also needs a shock relocation kit and use 4 rear shocks since the wheelbase is so short in these crewcab trucks.  Does your truck have a factory power steering unit or it is still manual??  As far as the 318 goes, it has enuff power to go faster than the sorry drum brakes can stop itlol  I hope you have  deep pockets and are part welder and fabber, these truck are so kewl and so under supplied in the aftermarket, there are no aftermaket power steering kits offered or disc brake kits due to the sorry closed nuckle dana 44, if you step up to a dana 60 you get discs and then can covert to hydaboost system from a newer dodge truck and then put discs on the rear dana 60 as well.  This truck you have is one of the most unmolsted i ever seen inside, most have 40 holes from radios and extra bs and holes sawed fro non factory radios, great truck and dont stop converting it, you will never regret it for sure.  I started on a 3.9 cummins and spicer 3053a 5 speed od with a sae#2 bell and Freighliner master clutch and misc  into my 64 w200 and got stalled with the broken leg.  Good luck and thanks for sharing the pics and story!!!

On the front axle would it be possible to use a front drop spring hanger & a HD frame bushing like on the 74-79 trucks? Also possibly a 70s front spring? Just some Ideas. Hows your welding/problem solving ability?
Can I get a measurement from the rear spring front hanger from the out side of the frame to the inside edge of the spring? I want to know the off set from the spring to the frame to see if my rear hangers have the same off set.

Dillo how close are you to Brutal offroad? James is ordering a set of rear hangers this next week & might be a good chance to look at them.

All,

Finally got to drive the truck...GREAT TRUCK.  I was mis-informed about the amount of rust, but that is to be expected.  THe 318 runs like a dream, the tranny is a little hard to get into second coming down from third.  The door latches newed some work as I have to pull up on the door a little to get them to open. 

  As for the lift, there are no blocks on the Front as I was lewd to believe there was, it looks like it in the pictures but it is just the way the photo was taken.  The back has some huge blocks but I am fine with them for now.

  The truck already has the power steering installed, pretty nice install.  Only bad thing is the angle of the streering column brings the clomun very close to the frame, but another thing that I can live with for now.

  I will post some pics as soon as I can, just spent the weekend with my son at his foirst Boy Scout Jamborree...THat was crazy...over 12000 scouts there.

Later all
Ed
