    as you can see in the last pic my rear wheel seal needs to be fixed. when i have the axle shaft out it will be a good time for me to count the splines so i can order up my 4.10s and rear spool

    Are you going with a mini spool? If you look at the Drivetrain Warehouse ad in Off-road Adventures, they have a deal for $140(?) for gears for a 9" and a free mini spool(for the 9"). :thumbsup:

    Since it is full-width from a 79 Bronco, I'm 99% sure that they were all 31 spline. Obviously check though before ordering your stuff.

    why carb, well i didnt have the money time or knowledge to go with efi. someday i would like to, but as for now, it has plenty of power and i havent had any problems with the carb yet.

    tonight i think im going to make it out to a local cruz night. its going to be mostly old hot rods but im going to show up, if i ever get around to washin and waxin her.

    the motor wasnt all that bad i guess.. i mean same obstocles as a 302 i guess, just a step up, because not many people have done it and you have to take in account for the wider deck.

    bmxqueen, as you put it, out flexes his buddies and appearently likes to bring it up whenever possible....

    how bout this. i outflex bmxqueen.. haha, just playin

    cdw6216r, about the steering, i ended up getting the saginaw pump working great. today i cranked the wheel and held it though and i blew the pressure line... i geuss my hose clamp wasnt strong enough :confused: :confused: :rolleyes:. i went up to a local shop and had them put a hydrolic fitting on the other end and it all worked out perfectly..

    i just got back from the local cruise night and a couple of the hotrodders where impressed. the low rumble when its idling is the best sound in the world, and almost all of them smiled when i pulled in. a couple people walkin around took a look at it, its a good thing its tall enough that most of them couldnt see inside and see the huge mess of tools and such.

    today i had to retard the timing a little bit because of spark knock, i played with the idle and got it all set but i cant find the sweet spot. im fearing the worst :( i believe i will have to run AT LEAST mid-grade in this motor. since i didnt build it i have no idea what the compresion is

    as long as im posting a bunch of stuff is there anyone on the board with 4.10 ring and pinion sets front and rear for sale??
