Also I think I have a trans problem from the last wheeling trip.

But after wrapping up this morning running brake lines and going for a quarter mile test drive then road tripping it I'm a happy camper.

Won't drive it that far again, but at least I can say I did it and it made it

I will post a finished pic tomorrow
I got to follow the G-man on the way up,......I have to admit that thing drives straight and true, even without shocks. Kudo's to your Axle Swapper guy he does great work!!!

.......but we already knew that.

Bling bling

Get socket headed cap screws for the covers and have me counterbore them for you. You will be happy you did. I didn't do mind and the space around the hex head is limited and makes it hard to snug the bolts. Next time I have mine off I'm gonna do it.

can you get a pic of the rear axle clearance at the fuel tank. I have the tub off mine and I worry about contact. no lift in my springs, but I thought without the tub I should have lots of clearance. I would like to move the rear back, but like I said Im worrying about clearance

got a decant amount of time in the seat now, feels really good, and im feeling confident behind the wheel again. i think this winter if funds allow i want to go shorter. but that will be after the 4 cyl dissappears. im sick of no power and a 5 speed. motor runs great and trans/case have no problems but i have finally got a windsor/c6/205 combo in my possesion and as soon as i get time im putting then in
