First coats of paint here:

For reference I did two coats primer and plan for three coats of paint. Slow going with paint right now, figures the one time I have a shortage of cardboard I have multiple parts to paint. Progress from here will be the other retainer, the cover behind the front output cluster, the rear output cluster housing and then the main case wich will be done "very carefully" the rear retainer I'm going to leave bare alluminum, perhaps with a rough pollish just so it looks a little cleaner:

Also currently in the works is de-rusting/ painting the pto port cover.

The two front bearing retainers complete:

I've begun the process on the rear output housing, as well as the front ouput's rear retainer. Tapping off the housing was a little more complex this go round:





Painting has gone smoothly, although for lack of a big enough box I've resorted to running it outside, quickly spraying then running it back inside and setting the only box I have over it to keep dust off:


I'm planning on primering the yolks and painting them black to match my drivelines, but asside from that, the bolts and the main case are all thats left to deal with in regards to major cleaning. Today I realized I had no clue on how to effectively plaint my main case outside of my garage. Then a pile of scrap pvc fell on my head in the barn, and this monstrosity was born:

Hopefully it will prove a good makeshift paint booth, I plan on covering it all the way around with painters plastic and duct tape, and then anchoring it with tent stakes and rope. This is the only part I dont want to try and move in and out of my garage between coats of paint, so the plan is that this booth will hold up for atleast five days for five coats.
I'm not going to lie I'm nervous about how this rebuild will turn out but I just keep telling myself "amateurs built the ark, profesionals built the Titanic."

Oof. Feels like I've been on an epic journey with this thing... On to the main case! The first step was to make a safe covered area outside my garage to paint in, as this hunk is a might too heavy to be moving around with wet paint. And thus this wad of painters tape, plastic sheeting, pvc pipe and survey string was born; I call it the poor man's paint booth:


Next up for the housing was a very teadious degrease process that involved alot of steel brushes, and wire wheeling, followed by some brake cleaner, and a wipe down with acetone. Then I taped up the majority of the openings:


And moved it into position on the saw horses, supporting it with some long wood clamps I didnt care too much about(they needed wire wheeling anyways so paint didnt bother me) along with a wood block in each of the larger openings to level the case and one other block and clamp to help support the first two clamps. Once it was supported I completed tapeing around the supports:


At this point I did one more acetone wipedown, wich was mostly clean, the only grease I got was where I had been handling it between garage and booth, it all wiped clean. Last step, paint. A good respirator was used, and it stops the paint itself but not the fumes, so I limited my time in there to a couple minutes at most and not alot of breathing lol it was foggy in there by the time I was done:



Tons more to come on this, first coat of IH red is drying as I type, and the hard part is almost done. Once everything is painted it will start going back together!

Here it is done:


Onto a couple other parts for painting, namely the drive yokes. Acetone soak greatly reduces gunk. It doesnt remove: hard dirt in the casting pores, rust, and if you use used (read heavily reused through the process) acetone, it will leave a resedue of grime. Not greasy, but just general grit thats adheared enough to not blow away with compressed air. While wire brushes remove most of whats left, hard spots and hard to reach areas still remain. From here I found that a 5/8 wire wheel and a dremel tool work wonders. I went over the problem areas, dunk in clean acetone and repeated till they were as close to clean as possible(rust will still remain in small amounts). Next up I made up a batch of soda ash (cook baking soda in a pan @200* for an hour) and got out ye olde naval jelly. I followed the diredtions on that and did their recomended 10 minute set time, rinse and repeat for about 2 hours. I coat the ground heavily in soda ash before each rinse to safely neutralize the chemicals before returning them to mother nature (also wash alot of soda ash into the ground on top of it all after to be safe). Next I dunk in the clean acetone to remove water and then lastly went over the whole yoke till shinny with a new dremel wheel, then soak in the clean acetone. From there (where they are now) i will pull them out and paint. First 2 coats red oxide then 3 black to match my rebuilt drivelines. While these are in progress the two flat stamings for the shift linkage along with the crossmember mount bracket are prepped the same way and will also get black paint.
The afore mentioned bracket:

The referenced "hard spots":



The same bracket after naval jelly:

The same yoke after dremel/naval jelly:

Now that the majority of the case is painted and shinny new, its making my old hardware look pretty tired. Usually the bolts and nuts are painted over, but frankly I hate painted hardware as it flakes off the minute I need to take it apart again. While I could strip and blacken each bolt head, washer, and nut individually, the reallity is it just takes waaaaaay toooo looong (as anal retentive as I am, I'm not crazy). Nothing else I could do to the bolts would be very corrosion resistant in their environment under the truck. I bit the bullet and ordered up a new set of nuts and bolts; while I was at it I upgraded to Nord lock two piece washers. The three roll pins for the idler shaft and shifter bars I'm replacing with the same size in stainless. All of this hardware I sourced from McMaster Carr, who made it verry easy to find everything with a cell phone app I would HIGHLY recomend. For about $150 I have enough spares to heavily carry over into my T98 rebuild with maybe $30 in suplement parts. I selected the zink-alluminum coating for superior corrosion resistance to the brass colored coating (quoted as 8x the corosion resistance). In addition to that, all of it was grade 8 over the stock grade 5. Big Ed, whom some of you may know on the forums has given me a couple good pointers on a failsafe for the four large mount bolts. I'm planning to safety wire them in place in addition to the nord lock washers. This will ensure that even in the event of a nuclear blast, those bolts WILL NOT VIBRATE OUT!!! EVER!!!
Here is the case mock up assembled:


Coming up in no particularly clear time frame or order are the crossmember, mounting solutions, learning to safety wire and a how to on building a lateral support thats actually good (I'm looking at you PO!) Stay tuned for the continuation of a large messy project I hoped to have done by now
For real though, at the end of the day, I cant really complain about the results ive gotten. i could go back and do it faster... Anybody know if IH made a time machine??? I assume not given lack of parts availability... Or are those parts not... Yea no...
