    Concur. id be changing that oil to protect that peppy new power plant of yours
  2. Just be extra careful, especially on wet roads, as that back end will easily slide or step out on you
  3. Looking good! Interested to hear how the ride and handling are compared to the old system

  5. Props to you for trying to get the OE filler location to work. Whenever I see fillers in the cargo bed of a modified truck, I throw up in my mouth a little 😀
  6. What diameter are the speedo and tach?
  7. Don’t think DP is in Maine. Maryland or something

    Caveat emptor? 😬

    You might get lucky with a 2 jaw puller depending on how tight the arm is on there. The proper tool that Mainer referenced is the bomb though
  10. This thread is great. Learning so much. Thanks to you all!
  11. Nice setup indeed. I’m most impressed that it’s clean enough to navigate barefoot 😄

    Good call. That’s the way it should be. Shouldn’t need to struggle to get the input shaft engaged.

    Trying to lower that engine and trans together will be a swear fest and ultimately to no avail. You can’t get the tail of the tranny over the crossmember without have the nose of the engine foul on the rad support. All made doubly difficult without a load shifter to tilt the engine. I think you’re better off to separate engine and tranny again, and while it’s apart, check the pilot bushing against that input shaft. You should NOT need to pull that trans in with the bolts. If that’s how you did it, it may be a bitch to separate them again. 🤬
