    Do you think your company would take a job to make 2 T6061 spacers for my 78 HPD60? I think the center bore is ~130mm, but I'd need 14x1.5mm studs, with 8x6.5" pattern. I've got some H1 beadlocks, but dont want to recenter until its a dedicated trail rig.

    Ok, so its still ok to reuse the factory CV if the shaft isnt long enough then, right? Just make a sleeve with all the nifty rosettes and plugs.

    Dude, this pic stumps me. Did the original tube not slip over the nub on the CV or was it just pressed up against it and welded?

    A propane torch probably isnt enough pre-heat to really matter is it? This whole prone to cracking thing makes me nervous. I've been contemplating using 6 bolts(2 on the ears and 4 in the middle) instead of welding. I see a good mix of opinions on this subject, and really am stumped on which way to go.

    Dude, do you have a better pic of your truss and c/o mount on the drivers side? What year is your axle? I'm debating a newer(meaning something other than 78/79) model.

    First time I put the input drum together, I couldnt get the snap ring seated on the forward clutch because I used cotton based towels and it wouldnt let everything seat properly with a wad of cotton towel sitting at the bottom. Seals were easy for me except for that. The lo/reverse spring on the 60e loads the whole system, so of course, its the toughest/highest spring rate, and of course, they are going to put it at the bottom of the case where its most difficult to get to. At first I attempted the press with some welded flat bar to make an upside down 'u'........ that cost me $24. I saw a guy on pt.net make that type of tool to remove the spring, that worked mo betta.

    Riddle me this...
    Does the 80e have a lo/rev snap ring like the 60e? Did a see a build thread for your 80e swap, or am I just imagining it? Send me link if one exists.

    Yeah it's already broke. 4hi launch with the mini maxx wide open on full boost. On his truck reverse is neutral, neutral is 1st, and drive is 4th. He's getting one with a larger TC and some billet internals I just wanted some recommendations you know

    would u happen to have a small grocery list of necessities for that 09 6.7 cummins? all he has is an EGR delete, DPF delete with 5" straight pipe (with o2's), and h&s mini maxx 170 tune max. is a 4x4 mega cab and will soon be on 20x10s and 35's..so he needs something thatll tote 500 HP easily to give him room for when we run injectors
