Looks very nice!!
I would have just fish plated the chassi where you have the t-case mount...
You never know with the samy chassis...

Can you tell me the size of the bushings that you use for the motor mounts?
I wanna do some like that on mine...

Thanks!

Thanks :mrgreen: I probably should have, but with the married/Dual Tcase set up there should be less torque going through each mount as it's spread between all 4 mounts, I think it should hold just fine but your right it is a sammy chassis so you never know If it rips Iíll just have to fix it

Can you tell me the size of the bushings that you use for the motor mounts?

Thanks! They are the just some of the large Sammy leaf spring bushes with some tube machined to the correct I.D. for them

A = 41mm
B = 51mm
C = 21mm
D = 8mm
E = 16mm
F = 12mm
G = 65mm

Cheers Man, Iíll get some pics of the finished ones for you this weekend with a decent camera!

Here's how I started them, gussets were then added that run along the edge of each plate to the axle.

Thanks Scott!

I was thinking about the ones you used, from the spring, but then I thought they would be to small...
But looking at your pictures they look perfect!

Damn, I haven't seen my car for too long ...

More of a U-bolt eliminator than flipped





Fitted a new Timing belt and tensioner etc.

Starting to look more like an SJ again now




T-case clearance


Nice and Flat belly






Gone for twin electric fans, these are controlled by a thermoswitch, one fan comes on at 88C and turns off again at 83C, the second comes on a 92C and turns off again at 87C, but I can manually overide this and switch them both on or off if wanted.

Then I started the U-bolt eliminators for the rear samurai axle, thought I'd take some step by step pics this time.

Just a small update, not had a huge amount of time on it recently and I also moved to a new bigger workshop

Got the Samurai rear axle fitted


Modified the shifter to make fabbing the transmission tunnel top plate easier.


Doubler shifter


Started mocking up the top plate

I didn't like that shifter set up as it didn't leave much room for the Sammy shifter so made a new one, it's not that pretty but works well.





Started the new top cover

To maximise my uptravel I'm running standard height bumpstops, it needed a little bit more trimming for tyre clearance

A bit more progress, haven't had much time on it recently though.

Bumpstops and shocks cut off the front ready for some hoops, I decided to relocate the bumpstops to under the chassis rails and a new Aluminium rocker cover.


Rear bed and fenders cut out to raise the fenders, shock mounts, fuel tank and floor.


Also pretty much got the trans tunnel finished after having a break from it.

Hilarious, I didn't think there would be more than one Suzuki freak, named Scott, who own an 87 SJ410.

Picked up the new axles for the SJ on Friday.
Fully float rear conversion and Cromos up front.



Also picked up this, could come in handy I think.

It's an RS MFG set up with cromo shafts, they can be found here http://www.rsmfg.co.uk/page6.html the adapter plates have been welded to the axles as the old owner had the bolts come loose and shear during a race. The axles themselves have been sleeved with 1/4" wall 2 1/2" tube. dont think i'll be bending them in a hurry.

Here's a pic from when the old owner originally built the rear up.

Yeah man that's the guy they are off, I think the rear does end up slightly wider than stock, i'll have to measure it up to see the difference, can't see it being an issue though
