cool thanks just out of curiosity has any one done the axel flip so that the pinion is higher? i had to get the spring perch of and move it so i figuered that i might as well flip it. so i'm trying to find out angle in degrees on the pinion, and my son said that i would have to cut into the housing so i could put a drip trey in for oiling the front pinion bearing? supposedly powerblock tv just did this and the show how, i slept in that morning and the web sight for spyke tv is aggrivating i need to know if it is nessesary and well how to do it. let me know if you can help please.

I have heard that high pinion housings are different for oiling. Not very knowledgeable about that part. I do know for sure you will need reverse rotation gears or your wheels will be turning backwards!

Talking

well $#@%(. you're right so much for that idea. oh well guess i'll break the tacks and flp it back over. i should have thought of that as much as i'm messing with gears at work. any idea on the angles?
and by the way thankyou, that saved me alot of time. altho mabey i can set upa gear box with 2/1 attached to the axel and then do the same for the front axel. this might get interresting. the only problem is getting gears to handle the torque and horse power. any one got some ideas? a spliter would be nice, 1/1 on normal 2/1 on off-road. that would change the ratio to 7.46/1?
let me know what yall think

are you talking about a two speed gear box on the axle? most folks put a doubler on the t-case. eliminates a gear box that way. as far as strong enough gears, extreme low gears are usually for control and crawling. if you don't thrash you should be fine

just tryn to figure a way to make it work, without- throwing money at it. three kids and a house full of dogs dosn't leave much. and i've got a 203 holding the floor down in the shed. also have 241c on the sub and 208c next to the 203. my problem is that i have had this apart for 3 weeks waitin on my son to bring my aframe back or my dad to bring my engine hoist. i've already started to fab some extended shackle mounts and well now i guess its flip the axel back overand see about puttin it all back together again. i seriosly need to get an idea about my dash.hasn't had one in 4 yrs. i've got to many irons in the fire. 86 3/4 crewcab locked up 454, 78 ralley sport camero with factory 4 on the floor and another 454 sittin in the bed of the crew cab and finally 350 sittin on the floor in the shed. i need a vaction.

laid off

wanted time and i got it guess i can't complain how i get itFacebook + Media | Facebook
i'll be getting the front raised this weakend. i've already hit most of the welding jobs, and tomarrow probably start on all the desiel mecanics jobs. here in lubock the welding shops try to start you at 8.50 hr. even with 10yrs experience. because of no rain and all the heat there is no cotton around here.
so i've got time on my hands. i took the spring perches off and re welded them i think i've got the right angle. any ways i have to get some steel and make better rear shackle mounts along with new shocks and their mounts. thats a 14 bolt for a desiel 3/4 ton crewcab

Do an internet search. The plans for the brackets used to be available somewhere. I just can't remember where right now.
