trying to swap in the 1987 th400 and 205 that i have . fsj has a th400 and junk stock full time t-case ( no low range). on the old 400 the bellhousing is rounded and the starter mounts in the bellhouseing. the newer th400 is the chevy style and the bellhousing is more triangle shaped and starter mounts to the engine . i cant just put the 205 on the old style trany the output shaft is diff. was trying to avoid to take them apart and swap output shafts even if they would be the same and try and do it... anyway im looking for a 1979 th400/ 205 info, or set up out of a chevy 1/2 ton of that year.any info would be nice to see if the bellhousings were the same on the older models.

got my th400 set to swap in or what i thought would just go in. found that the bellhousing is different all together and where the starter mounts is in the bellhousing on the old one ,the  new (to me) one would be the chevy style that would bolt to the engine. i need a 79' th400 . sux . it dont look like a tf 727 tranny because the trany has the right oil pan and is a th400. wouldnt happen to know anyone that has a old th400 and 205 do you?Huh?

leaf springs baby!   I used to have this book called Racing by the Numbers by Carroll Smith or something like that which was basically and engineering book on how to properly design and set up all types of suspensions (for race cars at least).  I'll see if I can dig it up.

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 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.
