Going backwards more than forward lately. Cab is now gone, getting ready to make some changes to the overall appearance and layout. Will be running a tube body, it will be shorter and lower, new PRP seats, Artec ram mount, and some form of 3/4 link for the front.

Dropped the transmission off to a friend to have the output shaft changed to the short version and have everything else checked while it was apart. That turned out to be a nightmare, low-rev clutch is smoked, so a rebuild is on the list for winter projects. Just going to run my backup trans for now since it is all set-up with the short housing. Its not built at all but with the reduction of the Atlas I think it will last for the 2-3 trips I hope to get in this summer.

Current state of disassembly -




I have a ton of work to get done in the next few weeks, with some help it can be done!!

That is the plan, might need some help but it should be do-able. Once I get the cage/body done, the re-assembly should go rather quickly since everything is already there. The wiring will be the last thing to do, if I run short on time I only need to wire the MSD, engine and trans cooler fans, and the starter to make it trail ready.

With some help from Tonka toy some progress (sometimes backwards is progress) was made yesterday. Front axle is ready for its changes, and the bare frame is ready for some forward progress.

Found some carnage that was unnoticed previously - had been wondering why the frame sat so crooked to the passenger side. Originally assumed is was a combination of the bent radius arm and panhard bar up front forcing the softer rear springs to lean. Found out after pulling the rear shocks that the shaft is bent in the right rear. Over a 6" section there is 3/16 of bend which has the shaft bound in the body.

New shaft and seal kit should arrive Monday or Tuesday.

I have tracking numbers for the atlas as well, it should arrive Friday.
