Looks like it plus everyone has specifically said it does. What torque does the impact reach?

It's right. The 04-08 F150s have a 1 piece rotor & hub w/non-removable bearings that are positioned close to each other towards the center of the unit I guess.

But they have 2 piece conversion kits out there that end up saving money, especially the next time the rotors need to be replaced.

Damn, that's crazy. Didn't know Ford changed it up like that.

We have a breaker bar (I've got another if you manage to break the other one), just do some physics and figure out how high and heavy of an object you need to drop onto the breaker bar for you to get 296 ft-lbs

if it's tightening against a crush sleeve in a unit bearing than it could be.

edit: oops saw the updates. damn that a pain in the ass just for rotors. I would just stand on a the breaker, as the impact can go higher which may not be a good thing.

Ya, it sounds like I have to be right at that 296lbs without going over. Total pain in the ass, but once I do the conversion it will be cake from then on.

hey dudes, I haven't set up my bender yet and was wondering if i could use the one at your shop to bend some 1.75" tube for my expo bumper this weekend? Are any of you guys headed over there?

I doubt I'll be there tonight, probably not tomorrow either and I'm gone this weekend. The 1.75" die should be there. Your welcome to use it, just cover up the pump and ram after you're done (it should already have a cloth cover over it).

I'd run the ram in and out once before doing a bend, make sure nothing's leaking or broken. Otherwise, it's pretty straight forward. One thing that might be difficult to determine is when the tube has been preloaded. And how much spring back there is. I have yet to determine that. And you'll definitely need to go through the knotches as the ram's good for maybe 20 degrees the first time, maybe less?

Right on, thanks. Have you tried bending 1.75" x .120 DOM yet?

Yup. There's force feedback in the switch. It gets harder to press as the ram's bending the tube. So you gotta press harder, like you're actually bending the tube with your fingers.

Ordered the hubs and Brembo rotors for the F150. So, no one had the socket? Jesse do you have one just not in deep socket?

I have large metric sockets that will likely work, but not deep one

Did the 140F shop heat aid in bending the tube?

haha....no i didnt make it over there. Ended up tutoring Autumn. I also thought i had the tube modeled in solidworks so i could spend little time there figuring out the geometry, but i dont so i have to do that first. Prob wont be til Oct now, but hopefully sooner.
