Nice project... I noticed you're using oem type axle shafts... is that because there aren't one-piece axles for the quadratrac AMC 20?

Off set?
All the AMC 20s are offset a little but like BESRK said the Quadratracs were REALLY offset. The Quadratrac transfer case didn't have the rear output centered. It basically had a "limited slip" system between the front and rear output shafts so both were off-set like the illustration below.

Nope, not yet....the company sent my adjusters for a 10" inch drum, but mine are 11". The two are not alike, so I'm waiting for some new ones

Got a little work done today. Reassembled the front, cleaned out the auto trans, cleaned and painted the rear driveshaft. Damn, it's a tuff job cleaning out all the small hideaway's on that trans!

Nice project! may I inquire where you got that fuel tank? mine came from justgastanks.com I noticed a similar sticker (YELLOW STICKERS)

Yeah cleaning transmissions is agony, it takes so long, and then, when you thing your done...you missed a spot.

I used a standard primer from the local autoshop and for the grey paint I used the VHT stuff. The frame and axles were metalized and then coated with a somewhat thick, rubber-like paint. I had an authorized to paint it, so I don't know exactly what paint he used. It was a product from PPG though.

I got it from omix-ada. I'm registrered as a dealer, so I get most of my parts directly from them. Great stuff IMHO. As far as I know, they get them made especially for omix. And yes, you ALWAYS miss a spot

Got the transmission painted with VHT aluminium color paint and clearcoated afterwards. Also got the brake calipers put together. The clutch pedal arrangement got a shot of gloss black.

Your project looks really nice! Great attention to detail! With all of that stainless you are in for long days of detailing/polishing after the project is completed!

What paint scheme are going to put on the tub? I know that is a ways off, but just curious.
