Have an interior plan drawn out yet Dario?Pat KKeymasterApril 30, 2020 at 10:52 amPost count: 1301
Spent last night assembling your trans. Complete out to the backing plates and bearing caps.
Went with one piece boots because we can when disassembled this far.
I will get all four drums turned tonight and brakes assembled on the trans.
We will build it if it comes.DarioParticipantApril 30, 2020 at 1:41 pmPost count: 516
Thanks, gonna shine like Tobys ass now!!! I can put brakes together, just pound out old races for me. I have new ones in a box somewhere, bearing packer and fresh grease waiting for them to get home. Also need studs pulled so I can out mid mount hardware in.DarioParticipantApril 30, 2020 at 1:42 pmPost count: 516Pat KKeymasterMay 1, 2020 at 7:04 amPost count: 1301
Website was down all night. Just saw your post. I had already taken care of brake assembly. So I knocked out the races and pulled studs at no charge.
Turned all four drums, installed brakes, and tapped all holes for assembly.
There was a good used German throw out bearing in your parts. Got that installed along with new clips.
You will still need to tighten your small axle boot clamps once you get this installed so your boots won’t be all twisted.
Ready to go!
We will build it if it comes.DarioParticipantMay 1, 2020 at 12:41 pmPost count: 516
Thanks for cleaning the threads, I took care of the hardware so it should go together smooth
waiting on my wife to get home so we can unload this heavy thing and start putting it back together.John JonesKeymasterMay 3, 2020 at 8:33 amPost count: 6423
Nice Pat!! Dario getting all the good stuff!!! Won’t be long now… and we will be road tripping!!!DarioParticipantMay 6, 2020 at 2:24 pmPost count: 516
Just placed the order for case with Fat Performance… And I spoke with Jose for the crank. He wants me to go with the VW h beam rods and mahle thick walled cylinders/pistons. gonna get it all balanced and shipped this week. Probably need to get with you for a big Empi order on Friday. Have a small list already 😉John JonesKeymasterMay 6, 2020 at 2:59 pmPost count: 6423
Sounds like a solid plan!!! I know a good engine combination. With the road trip pics to prove it!!!
Loving the progress!!!!WillyModeratorMay 7, 2020 at 11:28 amPost count: 1058

Can’t get enough of these street taco’s across from discount tire!!!DarioParticipantMay 12, 2020 at 2:32 pmPost count: 516
Got the email that my DPR Crank is on it’s way. Getting really excited now.
Planning on the Bob Hoover mod, so gonna need some KCW skills to put this one together.
I heard the Lake Tahoe trip got canceled, might have to plan our own roadtrip to break this badboy in. Maybe check out that spot Cole stuck his bus in, we might be able to get all the way over to Joes valley using the skyline drive. Kinda rocky but top of the world scenery.
