It had 4.10's.

I had a set of 5.29's for my other project that I put in right before the Loonie Run but during the Loonie I found out I really needed the HP front so I sold off the front LP with 5.29's and a locker.

It got stuck in single low 5:1 in the one tcase in Canada because the shifter fell out. In 5th gear I was wound out at earth scorching 15 mph.

That's all i have is 4.7:1....wheeled it like that with 5.29's and 38.5's and now with 5.38's and 40's.....once on the trail i really see no need for another range....the only time i miss standard low is running around on smooth connecting trails. Here in MI its not a issue as i just pop it in high range but down south in the mountains high is a no go lol.

Yea, I end up switching in and out a lot. One case is 5:1 and the other is the 2.28. 5:1 is where I am in the rocks but sometimes like the lower double. Then like you say, gotta get higher to go from thing to thing on the trails.

I haven't had it out too many times yet so I am still getting used to it and figuring out what gear works for what.

So putting a V6 high pinion center in a 4 cylinder low pinion housing presents some challenges.

First the bearing adjusters are way bigger and different. Not the rounded stamped steel like the 4 cyl has. They do not fit.





And the ring gear is noticeably thicker. Thicker is better right? Either way, it don't fit.



So clearancing is required.



Ok, so that's done, then more problems. Pulled all the studs and replaced them with bolts. Toy people know, but others may not know that the studs can pull out. So I replaced them all and put loc tight on them to keep them there.



The problem comes when I put the diff in. The mounting face on the 6 cylinder is far thicker than the 4 cylinder diff I pulled out of there. I didn't catch that before putting it together. So a lock washer won't fit and not enough threads are available for me to feel comfortable with just running a nut with loc tight. So the diff has to come back out, get cleaned back up and all new bolts put in.



I said screw it for now and went on with setting the perches. Got the perches set and burned in. Set caster to about 9 degrees positive. Perches have 3 holes but I decided to use the center and not do the one inch stretch. The 1 inch stretch equated to just about a 2 inch difference in how the driveshaft splines engage at full droop.

Gotta have it all back together and running in less than 2 weeks for a Canada trip. Gonna be tight. I don't have a whole lot of time to work on it between work, professional development stuff, grading for the end of the marking period, parent teacher conferences, and finishing my last work for my Ph.D.

I am gonna be a doctor. But not the kind of doctor that makes you call him Dr. But I won't deal with itches. I would have thought that with as long as you have been married, you would have gotten past the itch by now.

Wrong itch. Don't have that one.
What will your doctorate be in?
