    8" stock rear tech???

    Issue of 8mm studs and diff retention. Looking at the old bible and I think I have decided to do 10mm bolts to keep it metric. I like the idea of threading the housing, and running the bolts inside as usual (but No welding?) So I can replace the bottom ones that get fubared... Since I put...
  2. 6l50 or 6l45 tech

    With the new v6 thread I want info on this transmission. The LFX motor is the new cheap 300 hp motor for Miata and others. I want to figure out the transfer case options. I can’t find the pattern or the spline count or angle. I’ve found non drilled adapters for retros. Also talk on the inter...

    Hardcore Tech! Dirt in Window Seals, Windows getting scratched

    I park in a gravel lot at work. Lot is right next to the building. Every car that pulls in makes a dust cloud. Dust settles in the window felts and is scratching the outside of the windows when I roll them down. Monthly parking anywhere else 2-3 blocks away costs $90 a month. Daily street...
  4. Transmission Mount Tech

    Searching old threads more so on the old site… a lot of people say the mount should be triangulated with the engine mounts and to use the same material I inherited a TMR transmission crossmember mount in a part out which uses poly bushings at the frame and a hard fixed centred mount Is there...

    Old PBB mobile home axle tech

    Does anybody remember the parts list for using auto parts stuff to convert a mobile home axle to Chevrolet 5 x 5? I tried to look on Bill Vistas website to no avail. I know you can just buy the hubs now, but I’m trying to do this on the cheap for an old trailer

    Ford AOD Tech

    Trying to work through some issues with the AOD in my 86 Mustang. Backstory for those of you not in chitchat: Pulled a 150000 mile drivetrain out of a donor 86 5.0/AOD cougar and put everything in my 86 V6 Mustang a few years back. Since then we built a fresh 5.0 with a few upgrades (GT40...

    Axle truss tech

    Maybe I havent searched hard enough, but I'm not finding answers to my questions regarding the ins and outs of an axle truss. I see the aftermarket make nice looking blingie units. But to me, it seems like the designer was an expert in CAD and not fabricating or wheeling ( just my asshat opinion...

  10. Dual battery tech in 2024

    Curious what the general opinions on dual battery setups in 2024 is. Got a 96 K2500 Burb 7.4l. Previously had the second battery tray added, but the battery on that side doesn't fit, the other batt is dead (2.5v) and the wiring is.... special (pretty sure OEM doesn't route the starter wire...

    Suzuki 1.6l 8V vs. 16V Tech

    With a change of plans I started looking into the specs of the 1.3l, 1.6l 8V, and the 1.6l 16V. Each engine increases in HP and torque, but I have also heard the 8V has more bottom end torque than the 16V, and everyone knows how hard a 1.3l can be beat on before dying. However, I had to pull a...
  12. Fish Plate Tech

    My design template and my friends doodle… I thought I wanted to run the plate along the spring hanger but it’s not adding much of anything except weight Frame is 1/8” Fish plates are 3/16” because that’s what I could source I can add some speed holes with a plasma or hole saw. What would the...

    CV Joints - ALL Tech and Specs

    Alright from what I recall we don't have a proper thread specifically for CVs, we've just had some good conversations in the middle of other threads. So let's do this thing. Let's collect data on basically EVERY single CV we find, even if they're irrelevant to our specific wheeling needs...
  14. Rear axle spindle tech

    Hey guys, who here is a spindle guru on rear axles? 14b, sterling 10.25/10.5, Eaton HO72, d60, d70, d80, AAM10.5 and AAM11.5 and AAM 11.8 are all of them around the same strength spindle? I know the Eaton is different than the 14b but similar. Are the 60/70/80 the same as a 14b spindle? I...
  15. 6L80/90 Tech Thread

    Since a few have asked for 6l80/90 tech on my personal build thread I’ll start here. The 6l80/90 is a clutch to clutch trans which is different from the predecessors. More gears = more betters in my opinion….to a degree 1st gear - 4.03 2nd gear - 2.36 3rd gear - 1.53 4th gear - 1.15 5th gear...

    Samurai leaf spring tech for 2023+

    So much old info out there on different leafs for samurais. Most just regurgitate "yjs or nothing" I currently have what I belive are Stock YJ rears in spua, and trail gear Sami rears up front also in spua. The front is working pretty well for my use and rides noticeably better than the rear...

    99-04 Dana 60 & 50 Tech

    I’m sure this thread won’t be nearly as popular as the 05+, but after some complaints in the other thread about muddling it with 99-04 discussion I figured at least start a small thread to consolidate info about these bastard child axles. If I quoted you or stole your info ...

    All Wheel Drive Transfer Case Tech

    I'm looking for info on the various full-time / all-wheel drive transfer cases out there. Either from a GM vehicle, or adaptable to a GM transmission. Looking for feedback on their durability in mild wheeling situations. Prefer a case with low-range. Currently planning my next project. I have a...

    Low tech question square body floor pan to frame clearance

    Buddy is LS/4L80E swapping a 78 gmc 3/4 ton. I was under it helping lay out where the 2wd floor pan needed to be cut to clearance for the trans, and noticed that he only has 3/8" to 1/4" between the floor pan and the frame, with new energy body mount bushings in place. Seems like not enough to...

    Rotary Phase Converter Tech

    Playing with this little RPC I got "free" with a machine a year or two ago. It's a 2/4 hp - 2hp starting and 4 hp max simultaneous total. I'm hooking it up to run my surface grinder and vertical bandsaw for now. But I also have a 20hp motor tucked away in the corner that I'll eventually...
