I’ll try my 2 cents I’ve had both The 40 you get a convertible short wheel base, great trail rig, not much room for family with kids. 55 you have lots of room but. You have more sheets metal long over hang What do want to do with it, sooner or later you might want to go on a harder trail...
That was just a old puller I had, I ground down the ends to fit in the side holes and grab the edge of bearing, I got lucky if I didn’t cut the back shaft off to replace with a new one I don’t know what I would have done it needed a new shaft good luck
Update got the used engine to run, ( well it runs could run better) address that later. All new exhaust , Rear drive shaft on, Used seat in so I can push clutch in and it moved 2 feet on its own power it’s been like 15 years . next brakes . Here’s Pics
Great thanks for input , On my exhaust I know it hangs down a bit but it is a tight fit and sure it would be nice to be up out of the way just no room with PTO , Going outside the frame not a option Iam just trying to keep this cruiser alive and drive like a SUV thanks again
Also I had new exhaust made years ago and never run the 2F sold the 2F kept cruiser put V8 in it and kept exhaust now 2 1/2 inch all the way back, So Question I will be running TBI later should I put O2 in between adapter or below adapter thanks again this just a test fit
Ok more pics, So years ago I had a 2f in a cruiser and I got tired of buying that exhaust gasket so when I had new exhaust made I had this adapter made now I just buy 2 1/2 inch exhaust gasket at parts store.
