    Honey Badger build while dd (not dd anymore)

    I must have read that wrong. You replaced them since I assume. What pads are you running?

    That crack doesn't concern you?

    Does anyone have a toybox that could take some measurements for me?

    Another possible option for the transmission side would be to have the output shaft of the 4500 machined to a 23 spline pattern, and using a coupler to mate to a standard mini truck 23spine input. I don't knock what kind of length you have to work with. -Mike

    Does anyone have a toybox that could take some measurements for me?

    Ok im on my computer now. Here's what the output of the front reduction box of a marlin crawler doubler kit looks like: This is built to accept the input of the rear portion of the case: This normally mates to the transmission output coupler. Now for some 79 series trucks and maybe...

    Does anyone have a toybox that could take some measurements for me?

    You're going to have a really hard time getting an output shaft made for this. It's really going to be the largest challenge of the whole deal. There was an r151f in land Cruisers over seas that used a 23spline shaft that would have the split case features on the opposite side. It's hard to...

    Builds My R2.8 Cummins FJ40 (RJ40) daily driver build

    So you can either have a heavy custom flywheel made, or button it up and enjoy it. Clutch isn't causing this sound. I had a 50lb flywheel made for mine to avoid this. It still makes some noise of course, but nowhere near what it used to make with a standard gas flywheel. Heavy flywheel makes it...

    Builds My R2.8 Cummins FJ40 (RJ40) daily driver build

    Lets check to see how it responds to the situation I described. Fire it up at idle and with your foot off the clutch and the truck stationary (driveshafts cannot be spinning) gently push it into gear (try 4th gear) and increase the force slowly and see if the sound quiets down. Don't jam it in...

    Builds My R2.8 Cummins FJ40 (RJ40) daily driver build

    This is a sound caused by the torsional vibration of the 4 cylinder diesel engine. A heavier flywheel will calm it down a bit. It's the sound of the mechanical backlash of the gear train when unloaded. It is likely to get worse when the gear oil heats up. Many manufacturers use a dual mass...

    CruisD64's FJ62 Thread

    You don't want to put it in the lower hose. I'm sure there is another location that will work. Is there an oil cooler that uses engine coolant? That would normally be on the back side of the thermostat. Poke around there has to be a spot. Mike

    CruisD64's FJ62 Thread

    Yes you need to be on the other side of the thermostat. What you are measuring is only the coolant outlet temp. It's not going to read much of anything until the thermostat opens. Mike

    CruisD64's FJ62 Thread

    I would not worry about 207. As for the location of your sender, it must be located in the loop of the engine that circulates when the thermostat is closed. I'm not familiar with the engine you have but typically coolant circulates through the head and heater core and sometimes a portion of...

    2F Nightmare Saga- Looking For Advice

    Is this a multi layer steel gasket? What do the head bolts look like? Can you mock assemble the head in block with no gasket? You can use Fuji paper to check the interface between the two under clamping. There's about a million ways to go about this. The block and head were decked? Or are...

    Builds Mike's 1978 FJ40 Turbo Diesel Refit Project and Cross Country Road Trip!

    Split case should be better at dissipating heat than what I've got due to the aluminum case and increase in surface area. I'm sure the standard gear set is a little happier at high speed over the 4:1 set as well. My intermediate case runs cool. It is always exactly in the middle between...

    Builds Mike's 1978 FJ40 Turbo Diesel Refit Project and Cross Country Road Trip!

    I worked with Dakota Digital and developed this gauge to communicate via CAN with my cluster. I then made the bezel to fit where I wanted it. They make the screen for another application with its own bezel, but my application had a different footprint. As for the transfer case, I didn't get...

    Builds The Clustertruck Rides Again - Refurbishing a 1975 Chevota

    The distance I am referring to is the distance the tie rod riling is outboard of the king pin. If the steering is in front of the axle it is supposed to be outboard of the kingpin to create proper ackermann steering. If the steering is behind the axle it will be inboard of the kingpin axis...
