I\'m Yorkin!

for those that didnt see on the other thread, the local upullit was having an "all you can carry for $50" day today... no containers, but using fenders/seatbelts to help was allowed. it turned out to be a sport of sorts because they required that you walk this 35' between two lines they had set up. toward the end of the day people were gathered up and it got interesting when a "mildly built" guy attempted to carry an old Chebby big block out on his back. he never got it but he said if he could get it balanced on his back, he could've made it. i'm not sure what he ended up doing, but we couldnt even get him to stand there with it while i was helping lift it.

anyway, on to the good stuff... I made out with a double V-belt YORK with a good clutch and insane compression and two long hoses with fittings for it, a right side spindle, hub, axleshaft, and steering box off an early 80's Bronco. I also got a mirror bracket for my brother's car that we'd been looking for forever. i meant to get a couple external reg alternators but my patience was wearing thin after attempting to get the passenger side shaft out of that Bronco. how the hell do those things come out of the diff? Its slipjoint was different than mine, and even the outer portion wouldnt slide out?? It had busted ujoints anyway, so I gave up on it. That was some hefty steel as it was anyway, since I had to carry it all together, but using a seatbelt to hold the hub/spindle/compressor over my shoulder, I got it done [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

you can see the seatbelt in this pic:

Re: I\'m Yorkin!

Hey, why did`nt you pick up a front bumper while you were there, or do you have a secret mod in the works? [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: I\'m Yorkin!

Re: I\'m Yorkin!

The 80 and 81 TTB pass side driveshafts are held in with 3 bolts rather than with a c clip. The bearing on those two are pressed onto the driveshaft itself rather than the diff housing. I do like those years for the lubable slip yoke though.

Re: I\'m Yorkin!

Zach, yes it is. Same side as the stuff you sent me. If I'd been thinking, I would've grabbed the knuckle off the other side so that I'd have matching non-ABS 6-stud spindles that I could interchange. I'll call em and see what they charge for just a knuckle, I bet it'd be cheap, and I already have 3 spare spindles and a hub/rotor that would work, so it would just make more sense to have them match.

Re: I\'m Yorkin!

hey Norm... JINX! we posted at the same time [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] where are the 3 bolts you speak of? I looked inside the diff and didnt see anything that would hold it in, so I gave up. I have a bumper, but it provides for no front recovery point, so I leave it off. I'm going to build a new front bumper with integrated receiver when I get back up to school. I'm taking welding this semester [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
