My Project Cars

  1. OK, as I am starting to find and search things for TODD in a few years I figured a build thread needs to get started! For those who don't know, I've been planning FEF's brother for a bit over a year now. I'll stick in the bar coaster drawing of the original concept here as well as a picture that started my brain going down this road (tow truck). TODD stands for Turbo Diesel Pilot House (TDPH)...or TODD PH for short, or TODD even shorter. I've got a line on a 1994 4WD Ram 2500 with the turbo Cummins in it for a song, especially considering the tranny has a fresh rebuild on it. I also would get the performance enhancements the owner bought but never installed. The truch has ~250k miles on it so an engine rebuild is planed as well. I've been collecting random parts for the last year+ and need to decide if I should pull the trigger on the 2500. The picture below of the tow truck is on an 1990 Ram frame. I plan on a tilting hood like a modern semi to be able to acces the engine area (as the tow truck did) and extending the cab to have a smaller suicide door on each side for behind the seat storage. He will then finish out in a stake bed to use for hauling. I plan on roof lights, semi horns and a for "kicks" underslung train horn for those who REALLY piss me off onthe road (or at shows). I plan a '51+ main cab/front clip and use the older style doors to bring the brake line back further to accound for the flat suicide doors. About all the farther I've gotten on the overall direction. I called the owner of the tow truck today and he told me it was a pretty easy build, but he used a 1.5 ton cab/front end, and his is running on a 1990 Dodge frame. He had to cut out the firewall a bit (~4") for the longer engine and of course all the other stuff to acount for the pedals and such. I plan a trip out there (luckily "local") sometime this summer/fall to take pictures and measuements. Thoughs on the frame swap? Thoughts on my insanity? TODD: Tow truck:
  2. Hey everyone. Looks like spring is finally here in Minnesota! I am wondering if anyone could share any pictures of their Cummins swaps into their Pilothouses. Mine is a 53 1.5 ton. Particularly the radiator and intercooler mounting and what radiator they are using? I see some people have done the swap and it looks like they use the stock (Really Wide) radiator and intercooler but I do not see how they fit them in. Any help would be appreciated. Scott

    1953 1 ton Dodge

    Work in progress. Cummins turbo diesel 1 ton, 2 wheel drive chassis. 5 speed trans. Big Mopar truck front fender flares, stretched front fenders 12" to fit intercooler. Cab sectioned over frame 4". Top chopped 3". Running boards lowered 2". Front frame modified to lower radiator and intercooler to fit within the 53 sheetmetal. Doing a little at a time by myself in my own shop.
  4. Hey Guys, Im in the process of doing the diesel swap into my '52 B3b 1/2 ton and I've been fiddling with the front suspension. Its all torn down and i got new leaf springs from St. Louis Spring. Now im in the process of collecting the necessary parts to put it all back together when the time comes, king pins, shackles, tie rod ends, drag link, etc. This got the gears turning in the old brain... since the diesel is heavier (750 lbs dry) than the flat head 6, would i be better sourcing a 1 ton or 1-1/2 ton front axle and spindles? Also would it be a good idea to get a steering box from one of those trucks in order to provide greater mechanical advantage when turning? Im not familiar with the heavier spec trucks so any help would be greatly appreciated. I decided to make this a separate thread instead of in bedding it in my "1952 B3b with Cummins 4bt" so that people can search for it in the future easier and hopefully it will help them out. Thanks, -Chris
