I have the bellhousing, but it wont do me any good.  I measured the bellhousings and the 2.0L one is about 1.5" longer than than the 1.6L.  In addition, the 2.0L engine is also 1.5-2" longer.  I wont have room to run the longer bellhousing and still fit the extra length of the engine.  This may be the only time that I can't use an extra inch and half!  So it looks like I'll be running the 1.6L flywheel and clutch.

I dropped off the car at the recycler yesterday.  There is a DMV form to fill out if you dont have the title.  I got $140 for what was left of the car.  With the tranny also sold I already got back $200 of the $500.  And I still have a lot of other parts to sell.

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 havent been on here in a long time. I went to Iraq shortly after I got to Drum. I am still here and waiting on a return date. Hopefully I will get to wheel when I get back. I have a D44 front and ford 9 to put under it first.

I bet your wife is happy to see the eye sore is almost gone Smiley
yep. Hopefully I can get to Roth Steel some time next week.  Am I going to need the title to turn this thing in for recycling?  I hope not, because I dont have it.

Don't forget to grab that clutch master cyl. 
I grabbed everything.  The car is completely stripped.  I have the entire pedal assembly. I also took the brake booster and master cylinder, steering column, cruise control, and a bunch of other things that may be potential upgrades.

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 just sold the 2WD tranny minus the bellhousing, so a bellhousing swap is still an option.  I was only thinking about the clutch force but didn't consider the weight of the larger flywheel - that a good point.

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.
