The question was really more to do with has anyone out there tried this! I am currently in the construction, fabrication, head scratching and looking at a pile of parts whilst beer drinking stage of this project. Just wondering if anyone could share any dooz and don'ts. Specifically about the construction rather than the name, but for now I shall just call it a pile. <IMG SRC="smilies/idea.gif" border="0">

I've always heard them called chevota's or toylet's, depending on whether your the owner or not.


In fact, wasn't there a song about "My Chevota" ..... <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

I have a 350/th400/np205 in my 94. When I find a dana 60 I will have one ton axles too. It's like having a one ton chevy with a light-short-narrow body!

I just bought an 82 which the PO had swapped a 350, TH350, and NP205 into. Here's what I would have done differently.

1) Put at least a 2 inch body lift on it so the T-case sits higher, mine has no body lift and the T-case is about 4 inches lower than the frame.

2) Put a T-case in without a slip-yoke on it, now I have to find another NP205 without a slip yoke to swap in.

3) Consider going straight to GM or ford axles so you don't have to worry about the difference between US and Japanese Ubolts and knuckles when you're building your drive line.

4) Use a long transmission so that your front driveline isn't really short e.g. 700R4.

Good luck,
Milan

i've done plenty of these...1st. Use a body lift to get clearance for the Distributor and helps you "tuck" the driveline between the frame rails. 2nd.Try not to go more than 6-8 in lift because of front u-joint angles. Use full floater axles to save many headaches of axles flying out....
