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:
