Said fuck it and spent the afternoon building a bracket out of 1/4" steel that uses the bolts that holds the rear output on. That was a pain.
Cut off the TMR support ring and welded it on and painted it (btw Krylon now has a rattle can that has both primer and colour in it and dries stupid fast).
Put on new bracket and drive shaft which was a serious pain as I had to pull the flange off and put the bolts in from behind and tighten up using a wrench. Needless to say the measurement used for torque was how much it took to lift me off the ground.
Plan for tomorrow is
- refill the Dana 300 which should be around 1.5 liters as any more it starts hitting the seal on the output and will leak a bit.
- adjust rear pinion angle (I think it actually needs to go down a degree)
- don't think front needs to change much if at all.
- Zip tie a bunch of stuff and loom the speed sensor
- maybe drive it.
I see a quick spin through carp in my near future
Want to work up to any of the others
