Contacting Tim Hardy??

Please PM me or email me.

I spoke with Tim for quite a while in Moab in 01, and over the phone. Lost his #. Dammit.

We both had our GV out there, and loved wheeling them. He was telling my about the D44 side gear/shaft swap for the 12-bolt Zook rear he used on his Sammy. I wondered about the ARB being used, in in the GV, and we pondered.

In any case, I want to reach him about custom shafts (D44-31spline) for the rear of the GV. It was really lame at Zookin that I couldn't thrash the Gv as much as I wanted due to real fears of twisting off axles.

Help a brother out.

Re: Contacting Tim Hardy??

From what I have heard Tim doesn't do the internet.
There are a few guys on pirate that know how to contact him.

Tim hardy has done quite a few off the wall things to suzukis that I know of. Seems like he would be a wealth of information. An article about his old beat up zook in a series of four-wheeling magazine is what really opened my eyes to suzukis.

I'm sure glad it did. To run a comparable jeep I would have several thousand more invested.

Also there a few guys on pirate doing what you are talking about Moto261 and DSI have been working on it. I'm not sure if it is completed and tested yet. They are talking about selling them after they get the bugs worked out.

Re: Contacting Tim Hardy??

Is Tim the bloke who made a one off reduction gearbox to T/case shaft?
I saw a planetary reduction (58 star) on a Jap website.
I began thinking of that old reduction setup and am thinking that someone with engineering mouse could make this into a cheaper Klune.
I can't find it again though. Someone must have seen it ?

Stop the press, I found it agin, you clever modifiers tell me if you think this could be used between the transmission and the Transfer case. I relise it would need to be enclosed. But that's why i'm asking.

Re: Contacting Tim Hardy??

I have a couple of phone numbers that at least USED to be his. You could try them and see if either of them still reach him:

(530) 622-4887
(530) 626-9138

I hope this helps!

Planetary reduction. Okay, you got me, where do you install it? What's the price?

Re: Contacting Tim Hardy??

This one is for the new Jimny that hasn't reached the US.
I just looked at it and saw a possibility.
If the gearset was installed in between the tranny and Tcase and inside a cylinder of some sort it could be very useful No?
Also with a lock out of some sort it would then become a 1:1 drive as well.
So if one of the cleverer types on here got a hold of a set it's a possibilty (albeit slight) that they may be able to convert it to a 58% reduction on demand.
Just food for thought.
Alf.
