thx man,
I forget the part numbers but I could find them. I used all Centerforce parts, 11" dia, except the flywheel was from NAPA. The clutch disc is for a Ford 10spl by 1.0625. The throwout bearing was a special one that worked with the Chevy fork but fit on the input housing retainer. I'll look back through my files and see if I have the reciept with the part numbers.

Dirty S10 More stuff

Orbital mounted and I have the steering shaft roughed (just gotta drill the dimples in the shaft for the set screws... I know the orbital mount is backward but it worked a lot better that way.






I am working on my StaK shifters as well... The uiversal kit components would make the shifters too far forward so I kinda started to make my own...




I gotta mess with the spacers and crap some more, might hit the Bridgeport...any ideas post em up, thanks

the 435 was a fine transmission, I was not greatly pleased with how the Chevy bellhousing attached though, it always seemed like there was a slight clutch alignment issue. However I probably would have kept it, ecxept I decided to buy the Stak and found the adapter for the SM420 used at a great price. The 435 had an Advance Adapter to the bronco dana 20 which I sold as a package deal, so it all worked out.

I think these are the only good pics of the skid plate, I might be able to find some more of it with the jeep on its side.

Very cool build and attention to detail
Yea I was about to cut it off and build something new but realized it held up fine with the old 4 link... The link brackets are all 1/4" material, seems like its ok. You will love coil springs.

Dirty S10 Front bump mounts, used some modded Syergy brackets from Poly Perf



Finally off the jackstands, now sitting on the bump stops... I guess these are the "full bump" pics


01-25-2012 10:20 PM
Dirty S10 Rear bump mounts




New booster from a 88 YJ


Made the pedal throw adjustable, its kinda cheesey but oh well.


Had to machine the mounting holes on the MC a little to fit the new booster, 3/8" cutter on a Bridgeport, had fed, equally as cheesey


Put together

Dirty S10 Big update

Got nothing to speak of done during the fall. A tree fell on my house during Irene. Had to fix the house and started a massive tree cutting mission around my house. Built a new wood shed in the backyard. Worked on my 59 Case Backhoe....

Got back into the jeep around new years..

More tube work and front shock mounts

Dirty S10 Profender Air Bumps from Liquid Iron Industries in NJ.


Trying to setup to front shocks has been a pain in the ass.

1st try, didnt really like and not much room to mount the bumps



So I cut that crap off and narrowed up my grill and added dumbo's ears, maybe it will fly




but it seems like a way more sensible shock mounting solution and probably won't look too bad once I finish the tube for the grill surround and whatnot.

Right now I am working on setting up my front shocks and hoops, putting the gears back in my 14bolt and redesigning my rear 4 link.
