it looks like the planatery output on a hub of a drive axle from a fork lift, or anything with planet drive, that he changed a lil to make it mount to the frame, and still have an inline in/output, instead of in on one end, and the hub driving.

the gear box might go between the tranny and drive axle on the fork lift

my uncles has a big chain that conects the tranny and drive axle giving it a 3 or 4 to 1 reduction

I have One

I have and use the 3.5 to 1 under from Tim Hardy. No it is not for sale.. (Well how much:D )

I do not know if Tim will ever build another one (He made 2, they were made from C-4 Planit's

Call him 530-642-0436 You will have to leave prob a couple of messages before he finds time to call back.. Just a busy guy....

I think I can find my pics I did from an extensive thread here I did a couple of years back....

Still looking..
I need another day or so to find the underdrive pics or thread
The pics shouldn't be too hard to replicate (just look under your Samurai).

What does "C-4 planit's" mean? Is the C-4 the model number of the planetary, the model number of forklift the planetary is found on...what?

C-4 would be a Ford automatic
Yeah, I know a C-4 is a Ford auto tranny.....but with all the previous talk about forklift planetary hubs, I thought SAR_Sammy was referencing a forklift "C-4".

Yes you would think it would be an easy one.. But Then I have to take off the skid plate, then un-bolt the under drive and take it out (Well there goes 45 min) then take pics. Oh when done put it all back together.. Next contact Lance re-up my deal so I can post.. Or I can just take the easy way and look for the old pics and then contact Lance.... Feel free to come up to Pollock Pines and pull it out if you need the pics right away.. Weekend's coming up??
