    Greeting members of MUD. I have been working on an OM606 swap for a little over a year now, most of that time was spent gathering parts and having adapter parts made. I started the actual swap process July 30th 2017 with some minor disassembly on the 28th. I have been chronicling the swap in my 3-link thread in my signature line; hardly anyone has seen it there so I decided I will start a new thread dedicated to this swap. Seeing as more and more people are asking if a 606 in an 80 series has been done and google search results don't seem to show it I decided to bring it into public view .Be patient as I will be importing pictures from my other build thread and trying to keep things chronologically organized. If you have questions concerning the swap please Message me instead of asking a question in the thread. This will hopefully keep the thread fairly clean until the Swap pics and information are all there. Then I will address commonly asked questions and you'll know its a free for all after that post.

    The next 45 post will be reserved for pics and info so please excuse them while I'm working on this
