    1997 F350 410 rears

    Saw an add on CL the other day for a set of rears out of a 97 F350. Not really looking but the price for both is an excellent starting point. What is the general opinion? Not sure if the rear is a dually..not sure it matters. Any how it is a distraction for the moment. And procrastination always...

    T150 bellhousing needed

    Son's CJ5. Looks like from the pics he sent, one of the bolts holding the clutch bracket that takes the rotational energy of the pedal and transfers it horizontally to the transmission backed out causing one of the two ears holding that bracket to break off. He will rig something up to...

I am guessing just extend the 6" on center link to 8.5" on center. Have the...

    What shocks are you using

    Have the OME 2.5" conversion. And am starting to look around for shocks. Nothing modified other than different leaf springs with wide track platform. Don't really know what to expect with length of travel, which is the reason for the question.

    Wide track axles

    So the CJ8 Scrambled build is moving along and I had a quick opportunity the other day to open up the AMC 20 rear. It is a mess. Instead of spending money on rebuilding that rear..I found a Ford 9 with 3.50 gear set with wheel to wheel back spacing at 54.5". Owner didn't know what it went...

    CJ8 Scrambled is now a garage pet

    I have been working on the Scrambler since the beginning of December. The Scrambler is an 81 and had the 151 engine with a 4 speed. I will keep the 300 and junk the rest.The focus was to get the body separated from the frame, stow it out of the way and make repairs to the frame so the body...
