HOPEFULLY, by the end of this week ill have my intake fixed, new carb ordered, and some front springs ordered. i need some opinions on what front springs to order, i know the 44044s flex real good, and supposably can handle the wieght, but they may not give me the amount of lift im lookin for. superlift 69-72 8" fronts are stiff under a chevy, but i think the wieght of an ih powerplant would soften them up quite a bit.plus, with the 8" springs i should get bout 6" of lift, right?

Full size IH pickups are too heavy for 44044s. They're better for Scouts. Stick with a GM pickup application spring.

Sure -- heck I bet I could give you one for free. But I think you'd be better off finding some local IH dude to get you the good buddy deal as shipping alone is gonna be a killer.

I'm sure someone local has one - they really aren't that rare or hard to find.

I am currently building a extreme trail rig out of my 78 ScoutII. I am putting Rockwell 2.5 ton axles under the thing. I thought about running a Dana 20 to NP 205 combo for the transfer case but after concidering the install of such a set-up, I purchased a t-35 today.

I think that this will be a much easier and stronger. And that 7.16/1 first gear sends shivers down my spine! I not sure how easy it will be to find one there, but I got the transmission, bellhousing, flywheel, 13" clutch, pressure plate...ETC for $200 from a wholesale truck parts yard. They even opened it up and inspected the gears, took it off of the motor and strapped it down to a pallet for me. This transmission looks to have been rebuild just before the donor rig took a dive or it was driven with great care. Even the old store owner was suprised when he opened it up! I sold my old t-19/D20 setup for $300 yesterday, so when all is said and done, I made money on the swap (because I already had the Divorced 205).

In a nutshell, if you look around, It is a great way to get low gears a strong transmission and a fairly straight forward drivetrain with great low range for pretty cheep. I would consider it if I were you! There area couple of good threads here that cover the install.
