I had a friend of mine Mike May at Decisive Testing Inc. mag some of my parts. I have some parts that I can use without buying new. That is something unusual for this build!
Rory, I have not seen that footage for years. I would love to see it one more time if you come across it!
Dirt-Tech did the work on straightening the housing. It must be the original housing. The 9" gear is the only size gear I can put in the housing. I'm looking for another 46 spline spool if you know of one please let me know.
What is the bit sitting inside the short piece of tube on the side of the frame rail? Earlier pic looks like there is the same thing in the front and they have maybe aluminum caps? I thought it was a sway bar at first but..?
Aha. Figured it must of been obvious! Was this the standard setup in the day(for those running bunderson jacks). Or was it more common to use a bottle that gets pulled off every tire change? I think you should definitely keep it! I love those little details!
