    I believe he was not standing at the middle of the car when he take that picture. If you look at side windows, you can see that left side is less visible than right side. I think this is the answer, or...?

    I forgot to say, NICE ENGINE!




    What is price for rebuild kit for 318 in USA?

    I think my engine will need rebuild... My oil pressure is acting strange. I must replace oil first and then we will see. But anyway I`m looking excuse to take V8 out and rebuild it.

    Don`t know why

    Put a tape measure to your current axle and report back. Most are not centered.

    Because 14 bolts don't have a centered diff. From the 14Bolt bible:
    Quote Originally Posted by 14 Bolt Bible

    http://www.pirate4x4.com/tech/billav...ble/index.html

    A lot of other rear axles (i.e. 8.8, most D60s/D70s, etc.) don't have centered diffs. None of them, to my knowledge, are offset enough to cause any driveshaft angle issues.

    As for why it's like that. I'd speculate that in the original vehicle(s) the axle came in, that diff location offered the "straightest" angle between the pinion and the tcase/transmission output. It's probably a lot easier for the car designers to offset the diff than to offset the entire drivetrain (which could throw off weight bias and/or be physically impossible to do) to get ideal driveshaft angles. Again, this is just speculation, so take it with a grain of salt.

    Haven't shown my face here for a long while, guess I can update this

    Lets see, the transmission blew 2 years ago and I parked it because I was tired of fixing it. 6 months ago I pulled it out of storage and threw a new trans in it

    First thing I did was threw on some new tires and wheels with a shallower backspace


    After that I started on a few projects

    Rhinolined the tub



    Installed some race craft seats with harnesses (no shoulder bar yet, will be chopping it up in a month or 2 for full buggy)





    Grant steering wheel with quick disconnect hub



    Started on beadlocks today



    One done


    New parts

    5.38 gears F&R
    Install kits
    D44 locker
    sending unit flange for fuel cell (thats for anther post )

    and finally I got a tow rig
    2004 F250 King Ranch with the 6.0 powerstroke





    More to follow tomorrow

    Got the Beadlocks done, time will tell if they leak. Need to throw some airsoft bb's in them when i get a chance


    Had to weld up old valve stem hole and drill a new one ( can see the old hole to the right)

    Extended stems should make servicing easy


    Installed




    Also snapped some pics of my New stubby front bumper and lower radiator support. I raised the radiator an inch (along with fenders and hood)
    I will be adding a winch and fairlead in the future and tucking it behind the bumper

    Nothing is wrong with the 4 link, it's staying as is. Besides some stretching
