Yeah, sorta. It wouldn't go in any more so I pulled it back out and did some looking. It was engaged into the pump but I think the smaller shaft inside the input was bottomed out? Idk, I swapped in the one from the trans I just took out, the spines looked longer, and then it went in all the way. Who knows, its together now.

Went up to twisted trails today and actually drove my truck on the trailer when I was done, lol

Truck did good but I have a few things I need to look at, or fix.

First, truck rides like shit, wheels great, but bumpy as hell. Gonna mess.with shocks, shackle angle and bump stops.

Second, the motor bogs off idle really bad when crawling. When it was in the stang it was always wot and going fast, seems I may have to lean it out if get someone who know something about something to look at it....Adam.....hehe

Hope to get pics or video later, I know some was taken.

One I got when stuck

It is def running way off from good. You can it hear it at any rpm that its not right and smell it to. Several times it just flat out gutless with no power when trying a few obstacles.

As far as the ride, yeah it rides rough, feel every little bump and pebble as if it bottoms out metal to metal on the truck. The eb rides like a caddy compared. I think part of the problem is the rear shocks upside down and are not working at all to dampen. Also that there is no real weight to the ass end making it even bouncier.
