Matt im just giving you a hard time. Mine is almost leak free. My new tranny is leaking out the front seal and I will get it fixed when the new motor goes in hopefully next month.

Nice work, Ford!!

The input shaft seal on my "new" trans leaked too. As it turned out, the guy who rebuilt my T-19 put a T-18 shaft housing on it. There are some minor differences between the two, and they are not interchangeable. Between that and some clutch screw-ups on my part, I had to drop my trans 3 times in under a month. That's not a chore I care to do ever again.

Are you rebuilding an engine, or....?

Matt

If mine stops leaking, I know it's time for more fluids...

I would rather it leaked EXTERNALLY, than INTERNALLY!

I park mine in the tractor shop in the winter, stains don't matter in the tractor shop...
The Jeep leaks more than a '38 H model International!

I bet all you guys still believe in Santa Claus. There has got to be a rational explanation for this. Exactly how much oil does that Jeep use Matt?

Matt I thought about another 360. But I just couldn't bring myself to put $2500 into a rebuild and still not have fuel injection. I have done a lot of reading and talking to different people and I have decided to switch sides. :-(

I'm going with a Chevy ls 5.3 vortec. I'm waiting on 2 more parts to show up then I'll start a build thread.

5.3, np435, d300, narrowed D44 front, narrowed Ford 9in rear when I'm done. That's my goal anyway.

Matt sorry about the hijack. Now back to your regular scheduled programming.

Ford,

Hijack away, my friend. This thread was mostly for chit-chat anyway.

That's one awesome build you have planned. The axles are the last thing on my list. I just can't bring myself to spring for re-gearing and lockers with everything working well as is. The 2:73 gears aren't bad with the 360, and ARBs would just be a frivolous add-on for how I use my rig.

I look forward to following your thread....

Matt

I'm still undecided on how wide I want the axles. No wider than 60 inches. I was thinking 58in. I would like a inch or two more of my tire sticking out past the flares.

I have a 3/4 ton Chevy d44 front , a ford d44 front, 3 9in's, and 1 ford 8.8 from a explorer. I'm thinking of narrowing the Chevy d44 for SOA bolt in without out boarding the springs with the Ford rotors to maintain my bolt pattern. I want to still run my 35's and maintain the semi stock look that I have now.

Would the wider axles be for performance, or looks? I like the looks of little tire sticking out, but I'm not a fan of what it does to the exterior finish on the sides. I went with a combo that puts the tires exactly flush with the flares. My tub seems to stay a lot cleaner that way.

That's what's cool about these old heaps, you can do anything you want with them...customize the crap out of them, keep 'em stock, or anything in between.

Matt

Both looks and performance. I don't really want to spend anymore money on the stock axles. I have 456 gears and no lockers now and that's to low since I lost my overdrive. My 44 has 410's and a EZ locker in it. So I'm pretty far ahead of the game going in. And 9in stuff isn't to ecpensive. If I beat the bush a little around here I'm sure I could get gears and a locker used from a drag racer as our strip closed down last summer.

Sumner Machine Works is local to me. You dream it and he can build it. He gets $300 per housing to cut and narrow and $75 per axle to spline. I think I can do the housing's myself. But for that price I might just pay him to do it.
