I would say good idea going with what Tim said that's what he does and we have proof.

The welding rod I was talking about at the meeting is 309-18 its the same thing as Lincoln Iceberg just a 1/4 of the price. I used this for welding my UCA mount to my rear axle it works great but its only good for horizontal position and you can only weld in short beads of 1" tp 1.5" then peen the area

The biggest thing with winches is the battery adding another alt isn:t really going to help as much as using a dual purpose battery. Another problem is your stock alt output at idle to around 1400rpm isn't all that great so adding two and not increasing rpm will net you nothing but increased windage. I would buy another battery and isolate it for winch use or buy a Optima blue with the light grey case and not worry about it.

I'm kind of at a stall right now on everything with the broken foot thing going on. I have designed the front 4 link setup and have made most of the parts for the mounts but its not so easy to weld with the open toe boot thing I got on. I also got all the links cut to length and the frame notch located for the lower front links. I have about 5/8" clearance between the front driveshaft and the LCA mount its tight but it should work. I'll post these pics once i get them off my phone and resize them.

They work like a bastard just keep your temps under 900deg or its all over.

I would say the pins in the chain are the failure point and you have no idea what they look like unless you unload the chain. Your never going to get any closer to it and knowing that they fail would be another reason to just change it and save yourself the headache down the road.

I could give you a hand doing it. I broke my foot so it would be more of a your the hands I'm watching over you thing. A HT1000 is a little more complex compared to a TH400 and alot bigger but the idea is no different its just an extra planetary. The TH400 new or old will interchange the difference is in the servo's and accumulator spring rates\ design which will make them respond differently (shift points\strength). I will be good to go on 7/16 if your not totally confident you can do it.

I'll take a pic of mine and post it up but remember its a 32 spline output shaft that goes straight thru to the 205. My adapter housing is bolted to the 205 but you should still be able to see what I'm talking about. You may have to cut the shaft down to fit so see how long those splines are or you could just tear down the TH400 and put the 32 spline tail shaft in it's not that hard of a job, you would gain alot of strength, you already have the parts you need to do the job and you could freshen up the trans while your at it. Good luck with the vacuum setup I would scrap that idea and twin stick the 205.

I was talking with a few people and found out that yes GM made a TH400 with a round bell housing for AMC motors thats my bad. The input your looking for, the 10 spline input shaft for the NP205, can be found in a manual trans application. Most likely it will be a spud shaft setup to go from the trans thru your adapter housing and to the transfercase. Look for any manual trans 3\4 or 1 ton 4X4 chevy, ford or dodge truck and you should have the shaft your looking for. I thru out the small 10 spline input crap otherwise I could give you one. The bolt pattern I was talking about is on the transfer your 4 bolt pattern is the adapter housing to the tail of the TH400. Sorry for the BS on the TH400 but I have only seen 32 spline outputs on TH400's a 10 spline is a new one for me.

Is your x-fer input 32 spline or 23?? Do you have a 6 bolt round or the funny looking figure 8 mount on the x-fer. All the chevy's are the figure 8 style with an adapter to the trans only the fords's and jeeps are the round style. All TH400's are 32 spline inputs but from what you are saying with the 1/2 ton apps makes me question the output spline count and if you actually have a TH400 it actually sounds like you have a TF727. If your x-fer is indeed a round style mount and your trans has a 23 spline output then finding the input for the x-fer is easy but you need to know what the trans is for sure. Can you take a pic of both the original trans and the newer 205 transfer. I have a few diiferent inputs for 205's that your more than welcome to but we need to find out exactly what you have.

I got some more stuff done. I am having problems with clearance issues on the LCA's go figure. I thought doing a 4link front I would have issues with the UCA's but they fit like they were meant to be there. The issue I am having is between the LCA and the frame on the front. I want to keep the belly flat and in doing so it places the LCA mounts in a location so they will hit the underside of the frame before the axle is at full 5" bump. I think the solution will be to notch the bottom inside of the frame and gusset the upper to resolve the strength issues. I need to post those pics once I get them it's quite a dillema but I think it's resolvable with the forementioned idea. Does anyone know their numbers for antisquat, IC, and RC?? If so what seems to be the sweet spot your running right now and at what height are these calculated at? A front 4 link isn't covered very much anywhere and most are on the fence about what's good and bad.

Yes you need the title unless you cut it in two which isn't that hard to do with a saws-all. Just cut the top off and cut the lower in two and they no longer care if its got a title or not.

I bet your wife is happy to see the eye sore is almost gone Smiley Don't forget to grab that clutch master cyl.

Yup still have them I was going to list them on craigslist but if you want them LMK

If you have the prints for both the wiring job should be a cake walk. If you need any help with the wiring I'll do it I actually enjoy building harnesses.
