      You can purchase gasket paper at any auto parts store and make your own gasket by tracing the cover.

      Did YOU install this 420 trans and transfer case? If so, what did the pilot bearing look like in the end of the crankshaft? The input shaft on the SM420s, (civilian truck/Gama Goat does not matter) is SHORTER than that of the Toyota three...

      You might consider backing off the rocker arms so the valves are all closed to seal the cylders and it relieves the pressure on the valve springs.

      While the JTO disc brake conversion kit is easy, I’d do a front axle swap to the later Toyota axle. Disc brake axles had fine-spline birfields, which are actually stronger than the coarse spline birfields on the earlier truck. A 76 will still...

      If they fell out it will eventually cause shifting to second issues and input bearing issues, fwiw, IMO the 420 would eat those up and youll never know, I too had same issue, took front bearing retainer off and input moved forward, tink, tink...

      It's hard to say what's wrong. Didn't you recently have the tcase off? What was done to it or why? The collar goes on to the 420's output shaft. It needs to be against the rear bearing. It keeps the rear bearing in place on the shaft. If...

      Rereading your 1st post, you drove it for an hour and the tranny made noise. The 90wt warmed up during that hour and it's viscosity is thinner. The next day you said you ran it for 15 min. The 90 wt was not warmed up so it wasnt as noisy. How...

      If the needle bearings in the input gear pilot got loose, they would end up inside the transmission and probably be stuck to the magnet. There is no way for them to get outside without a big hole in the tranny case. The 420 is reasonable easy...

      The dogs or splines for 2nd gear that the shift collar slides over are part of the shaft and cant be replaced. If you grind 2nd the dog's where down and the collar has less engagement. When they wear too far the tranny will start to pop out of...

      You can always adapt an electronic flasher, which is more sensitive.

      The 420 is one of the easier trans to work on. If your curious youll have to remove it. Fyi, never grind going into second.

      I'd be looking at an H55 and 3:1 split case gears instead of an Atlas if you are looking to spend that much. You can get H55 new from Toyota, and the split case from Cruiser Outfitters. I'd also be looking for fj60 axles instead of the 40 axles...

      Toyota didn't relocate the crossmember for the H55F. The location ofbthe fuel tank 1/79+ there isn't room to move it back. The hand brake was moved to the rear axle 8/80+ on short and mid wheel base 40 series. Toyota decided to keep the hand...

      if the rest of the frame is looks like your engine bay then it's fine. Get it running and driving safely and reliably first and then worry about everything else later.

      If you run a stk 40 tcase you can run a stk speedo. They're also vendors who offer longer cables if ness. The tcase is always relied on for low range and 4wd. Off road, I'm usually in low range. I've run some variation of all the drivelines...

      Besides, the Toyota roll bars were useless junk. You are better off having a real roll bar built that will actually save you if you have that unfortunate experience
