How about an SM465-NP203-NP205 combination mated to D60s with 5.89 gears turning 39.5 tires?? <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0"> Oops, sorry this won't work for you short-wheel-base FJ40 guys <IMG SRC="smilies/laughing.gif" border="0">

I am almost there... just a bit more machining on the output shaft of the 203. I promise some pics soon.

Hey, good to see you here, Jim

Hi Andy... I have one of each, and probably should not say any more about that subject. I do very much like the design of the ORD Generation II doubler. Stronger and much shorter than the first generation.

Thanks for you input Mista H! I think there are probable power band differences between the 350 and the F series motors (Hmmm?) My interest in this thread is that my 62 is sitting on 32's and soon to go 33's. She is somewhat of a dog when it comes to hills - that's why, like Cornerstone, I am going to 4.56's. I am hoping this will bring back some feeling of power. I would love to figure out some engine tweeking to get some more go out of the motor. The swap to a 2.5 inch exhaust and freer flowing muffler did not do a whole lot, and I have heard that the K&N filter is not all it's cracked up to be. So what's a fella to do? BTW, are you gonna make it down to the Bay Area anytime soon? Cheers, Andy</STRONG>
Yep a bit of a powerband difference.... I think jumping 2 gearsizes is always the way to go (IOW 3.7 to 4.56 or 4.11 to 4.88)

Besides as the vehicles get older and we get bolder the tires get bigger....

As for the Bay Area - not on my current agenda but it could come up quickly.

Oh yeah and Krusty - as for that feeling of power - weren't you chatting earlier about having the 'situation in hand' thats a feeling of power! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Been here for a while, just been busy....I if I get lucky, I'm going out on a new trail Saturday, and maybe - just maybe I'll get my tubing bender setup soon.

Can't wait to see what you're cooking up Jack.... <IMG SRC="smilies/vader.gif" border="0">
