The pan clearance is good, I was worried about the 4l60e shifter connection on the tranny with the drive shaft, but there is not an issue. I can post a picture tomorrow when i get home.

I drove my rig about 60 miles today, everything worked well. The engine and the exhaust sounds great. I still have to finish up some other small projects on it, but it is currently drivable. I did order a longer input shaft from Novak for my d300. With the flip ring that I used, it causes the input shaft to not seal well on the 4l60 to 300 adapter seal. The new input is about an inch longer, so it will have better spline engagement and seal contact.

After a 3 month overhaul on my Willys, I'm glad to be able to drive it again. I still have to build a new stretched hood and a few other small projects to have it ready to go, for this season. Today, I did around a 200 mile road trip with no issues, I was also able to stop by and see a couple of friends too. My 3 month overhaul included regearing and rebuilding my rear axle, rebuilding and flipping my dana 300, rebuild and installed a 4l60e, installed a 5.3LS engine, rebuild/ shorten and swap tubes on the front dana 60, and installed new seats. There were several other things that go along with all the above. Needless to say I am happy to have it back on the road. Now I need to have some global warming to melt all the snow.

I drove it to work this morning and noticed that the o-ring on the intermediate shaft is leaking. I think I know what I did to cause it, the issue is fixing it. I am not for sure if I can do it while it is installed. Can I tap the shaft out far enough to replace the o-ring without the gears moving/offsetting? I would like to do it without pulling the transfer case if possible.

Playing around tonight, I was driving over obstacles to check the clearance on my rig. My front axle yoke hit my exhaust pipe and ripped the v band clamp off. So tomorrow I get to head back to the exhaust shop and see if we can figure out a better way to run it.

I also built a new hood, it is stretched a little under 4 inches. I still need to pick up some 1" tube and build the fenders attached to it.

What are you doing for the hood latch? I'm thinkin' of the rubber ball stretch thing and gas shocks instead of the spring latch.

I was considering 2 options.

The first is: copy Svaras and use the race hood pins that would come up through the fenders.

https://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/jeep...-chile-10.html

The second is: to make a small bracket where the fenders use to mount to the grill and then make a tab on the each side of the hood and then use a knob with a threads on it to tighten each side. I'll use my awesome artwork skills to try and illustrate it.

For those using a hydroboost system from a stock vehicle, what brake pedal are you running?

I'm using hydroboost from a 2002 Silverado. I have a set of modified wrangler pedals hanging from their factory bracket. I think I have some photos in my "Mild M38 Build".

I modified the pedal from the chevy truck I took the Hydroboost out of and I sent it to VANCO for some massaging, because of the full hydro steering I used on the '48 flatty. Massaging meaning I cut the pedal arm and welded it back to work with the flatty floor. It's in my '48 flatty build thread.

Snowmobile latch works pretty slick also.

Looks good!

I so need to move somewhere that they don't require the tires to be covered!

I thought about it, but could not get myself to change. I painted the hood and fenders to match the existing color. I am going to spray the tub over to match the new paint on the hood and fenders, but it is still the same color.

Used a k rail to check clearances on fenders and new flat belly skid plate. Everything was good. My skid plate is 0.25” plate that covers from the harmonic balancer to my rear tc yoke.

Cool to see it put all back together looking sweet again. Jealous of you ability to power though projects like you do. How did you end up liking the 4.88s now that you have it back on the road ?

It is a lot better than I thought that it would be on the highway, it seems to work well in low too. I have not been out on any trails yet, but I have drove up on different obstacles and it has done fine. I think the motor hp and torque make up the difference. I’ll run it this year and when I change my rear 9 to 35 spline axles, I’ll decide then if I’ll change. I think the lowest that I would go is 5.38s.

With all the changes that I made to my rig, it only increased my weight by 200#. Total weight is 4560#, with 26 gallons of fuel. The front axle Is 200# heavier than the rear.

Thanks for the heads up! I had no idea and have not been notified about anything. I’ll see what’s next.
