My NORRA Pioneer build

Thought I would finally start a build thread for my 2019 NORRA Mexican 1000 build to better document and pull together the suggestions and advice into one place. I am in the early stages but things are coming together and parts are showing up.

After much thought I decided to abandon my plans to build my 72 into a racer as it was in too good of shape and a running and driving bronco to boot. I sold it off and picked up a roller locally as it was priced reasonably and I certainly wonít have any heart ache in pulling it apart, matter of fact I think i rescued it

Any way the last few months I have been in rust removal and body panel repair mode. I finished replacements today, body work can wait for a while. The body will be off the frame this week and I will reinforce areas on the frame and remove all the stock shock mounts and do a bit of frame tidying. Then suspension,axles,etc.

I will post up more info later but hereís some photos of picking it up, some work along the way. And how it sits tonight.

As of now your valve covers are completely closed. The shop wants to run a tube across to connect them with 2 open, filtered breathers on top the tube. I don't know if those filters would work well in that area with all the dust.

What are you running for an engine? Wet sump or dry sump?

Pretty sweet.

Canít wait to see how it turns out.

Your old 72 now has power disc brakes up front, a floor mount shifter and a host of other small things. It's a lot of fun.

Sprayed primer and seam sealed most of the repairs, built a rolling stand for the body. Rear disk brake kit came in.

Finished working on most of the frame, cutting off what I donít need, track bar drop bracket, stock shock mounts etc. turned out the stock track bar bracket was junk so cut that off too and used a heavy duty drop bracket I had laying around and fabbed up a new one.



Re-enforced some spots on the frame, leaf spring hangers, radius arm frame mounts, both sides of the frame where the steering box mounts and a few other spots. Threw a quick coat of paint on it.



Mounted the rear springs, axle is under it but still have to cut out some of the back brace to make room for the spring perch and u bolts and burn in the rear brake brackets.





Working on the Dana44, should have it rebuilt tomorrow and hopefully get it mounted under the frame man„na.

Front end is rebuilt and re-geared and then slid it under the frame. Welded the front and rear lower shock mounts, started running fuel, brake and transmission cooling lines.
