Well, I would post pics but my computer for some odd reason won't allow me to load them so... you guys don't get any goodness until I figure what the deal is... [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
Here is my deal though, I bought an 87 Samurai ST with a bad motor among other things. I pulled the motor and put a good motor in along with new motor mounts a working alternator and an electric fan... SO, I'm good up to there. She'll be running tomorrow when I fill all the fluids hook up the rest of the wiring, hoses, etc...
Heres my Q if you're still reading; It has a 84 410 tcase in it which has to be pulled out since one of the arms is bent and no washers were used so it rattle around, SCARY. I am going to put a TT set in anyway, with newer bushings, but I am thinking to my self, "SELF, since you are putting 32's on this pile should you put in that shiny 6:1 case sitting on the floor that you haven't sold?"
The 410 case is a 12% reduction my case I believe is 18%, I need to check... Anyone have an opinion on which to use. It will be mainly used on the street and mild wheeling with the little bro and those occasional shortcuts we have around here.
I'll get some pics up... I am doing some cool things to it... tomorrow (Friday) I am tackling the heater box and ALL THE RUST! After it is running of course! Should be a fun and dirty day!
Daxe, if you read this... did that red trackick have a license plat light-up-thingy...? I am wanting one. If I remember the mounts were all rusted and thats exactly what I need.. let me know!
Thanks in advance everyone. Brent
