Re: 1955 R-110 Cummins Swap

Spent Monday through Wednesday pulling the 2wd ZF to put the 4wd in. Had the 2wd out in 30mins. I was kind proud of that. But putting the 4wd in wasn't that easy. While I was in there I checked my rear main for a leaks. And it was dry as a bone. But the oil pan gasket is where my mysterious leak is coming from. Good thing I have one for it. Just waiting for the oil change to do it.
Any ways I had the new five speed bolted on the bell housing pretty quick and the cross member installed. But I had to alter my cross member for The front driveshaft off transfer case to clear. That was the easy part. But after bolted the t case in I incountered a problem. The factory cross member under the rear of the cab was right in the way. Seeing no other way to get around it, I reluctantly removed it. Now I have tons of room. Hoping my old Carrier bearing bracket would be able to replace the original cross member was wishful thinking. So I decided to make a new one later. I spent Tuesday tracking down a slip yoke for a 1356 t case. Now that I had that, I took my f250 driveshaft and shorten it two the proper length and put new u joints in. Also with the t case I can use my original speedo again!! Expect I need a new gear because it's five mph over. But anyways I took some 2x2 box tube and some flat iron and made a new cross member and placed about 8 inches back from stock useing holes that were already there! Also cutting the hole for the t case shifter hurt me more than the truck. Lol But it had to be done. The new five speed shifts so much better! I think it was rebuilt very recent. But now I have clutch master cylinder issues, went to pull out of the church parking lot and I lost all pedal pressure. So I floated the gears all the way home. I guess I'll mess with it tomorrow.

Here are a few pictures of the custom crossmember transfer case mount I made for our L110 Shorty. I think the pictures are self explanatory, so I will not add some BS. Ther is lots of clearance for the front driveshaft, on the left and lots of exhaust clearance on the right.

That's pretty much I did for a transmission mount. Your transfer case looks alot smaller than mine. The cross member right above your T-Case is what I had to wack out.
