Does a Spool for a 14FF exist??

Anyone have any ideas where I could find one?? I've looked around some, but can't seem to dig one up. I can weld it, but only if I have to. Any ideas, thoughts....??
Thanks,

Jeez, seems like I've heard of them somewhere. Like someone was making some or something. Try asking over on www.ColoradoK5.com That might have been where I heard of it.

<font color=green>Yes, somebody is making one now, I just saw it advertised in one of the rags. I'll look tonight and see if I can find out who it is. I beleive it's actually a mini-spool, but in a 14b that should be fine.

Thanks for the help everyone. It'll be another month or so before I dig into it (I think), so if no one comes up with anything by then, I'll dust off the welder.

Yowch!! I'll dig out the welder and weld it together. Then I'll buy a 30-pack and torture test it with some friends. And still come in under $50!!

Thanks for the reasearch. It is appreciated. I was hoping it was in line with some of the others, under $100. Guess not.

Just a note-even if you find that your rear end has the worn-out limited slip (Gov-Loc?) It can still be welded, same as the Colorado K5 article. If you are not worried about the spiders and side gears, I would weld them together rather than the K5 method of just filling in the spiders, I would think it to be stronger. With 4 spiders to weld, you should never have a problem with it breaking loose, no matter how many 30 packs you bring.
