No wonder I was in three wheel peel at the end of the day.  Better than braking the axle.

I have a problem selling parts because you never know when you might need it someday.

I was gong to do that when I did the tranny swap but decided its too big of a PITA.  Found out the hub split on the rear axle and sheared the key.  And that's why you dont see two piece axles in cars anymore.

I would upgrade to the larger flywheel and clutch system.  It would potentially last longer under offroad conditions and be easier on the starter plus have more mass so the motor has more lugging ability.  They made it larger for that engine for a reason.  You may get lucky and all you would have to do is the bellhousing swap.  Might need a custom pilot bearing but they are easy to make and the clutch splines may be the same.

Hans didn't even break his pride.  Cracked his windshield a little more and a couple new dents.  I broke a rear axle shaft or hub in Otters and my steering bell-crank assembly broke off the frame on the way to the parking lot. It was hitting my harmonic balancer prior to breaking and was shooting sparks like a grinder.

Wiring can be tedious but not that bad if you have the schematics and time.  Just make sure that the harness that you are using is salvageable.  I did a 5.0L EFI swap on my bronco and converted over the stock harness.  Unfortunately the harness is old enough to have corroded wires and connectors causing intermittent electrical issues.  I'll probably buy an aftermarket new harness just to keep the gremlins at bay.

I could provide a whole 86 bronco for cheap!

What are you cooking up now?  73-77.5 fords would be your best bet for finding one.  They would be a NP205 and weight about 200lbs.

I always thought you wanted it the otherway around.  Your steering would be limited with a narrower front axle and large tires.

I would say so since I've seen his truck in Cato off of Rt34

Is there any specific video format,  or it will upload anything?  Most peoples videos are MPEG, AVI or MOV

Just wait untill you upgrade to a more agressive tire.
