WOOT!-Got my axles and my money!

Hey-I finally got my accident money from January 12! Went to heaven...uh..junkyard today and spent all morning looking and measuring for axles. Then I saw them come in with a van(doubletake)...it was a 4x4 Ford Quadravan! 460/C6auto/sometransfercase/D44front w/doulbe piston calipers/rear D60 w/small fin 12" semi-floater...SWEET. Asked the owner how long its been off the road..he said just last month it failed inspection due to body rot! Got the motor/tranny+transfercase for $200.00! And BOTH the axles for $125...its good to know people!....sorry just had to tell someone!..bought a new welder and now its time to shorten them axles...I live in Massachusetts full width axles wont pass inspection...or the local P.D.

Re: WOOT!-Got my axles and my money!

Hey-Ive already fired the thing up when I took it out of the box and installed the wall plug. I built a roll-around cart for it and welded up some 3/8" rod on both sides of my lawn tractors plow, and a 3/16" piece of angle iron on the bottom lip. I had some left-over fluxcore and it worked fine the pattern was great and the controls are easy to use.
