I know the 60 in the background does NOT belong to either of those “gentlemen” pictured…Enjoyed the Lonestar Roundup. From there had the pleasure of having Zach @Zjohnsonua and Casey @POTATO LAUNCHER at my my place. Zach is on now on his way to Alabama and I have Casey here at the Casa all week. More to come.

Got some 4 degree wedges added to Daniel’s OME lift. Waiting on some parts before I can put the T-case back together. Buttoned up the oil pan and RMS. Ran into a problem pulling the bearing from the tip of the output shaft. This puller has worked flawlessly for many cases but this one is proving a bit stubborn. Filled it with Kroil and letting it sit overnight. The cage exploded and all the needle bearings are out. Will see if I have any luck in the AM.

Ha…I definitely am. For the first time in 32 years I have zero reason to cut my hair or shave. Been using a #1 on the “Wahl” system every week since 1997. Sorta cool using a comb when getting out of the shower. Guess I forgot to bring it to Roundup .Jimmy gathering some moss…..
(I guess we all are).

Would it be possible to share the part numbers for the Magnaflo system you installed, please.Helped out a really good guy with a timing belt/waterpump kit in his sweet hundy on Monday. Busy day so forgot to snap some pics. He had what he thought was an Aisen kit put in 25k miles ago. When I opened it up found the pump was not Aisen and the person doing the job forgot to replace the O-ring on the back of the waterpump. The old one was very brittle and the obvious culprit of the leak.
On another note…I’m getting the pleasure of working on Brent’s @SoTexCruiserDoc 80. Hard to believe but someone stole his cats. So he picked up a Magnaflo system and I’m replacing the manifold studs, all new crush gaskets and bolts/nuts to the back of the muffler. Excited to hear how this system sounds.

You’re correct. The 61 has a A440F and the 62 is an H I believe. From what I’ve read it may also have to do with a beefier torque converter. All comments I’ve seen so far is folks that have dropped an H version behind the diesel have not had any issues. My goal is to have the next owner determine the trans and I’ll swap it in. I have an H55 with T-case out of another 61 that can be dropped in or glad to go new if that’s of interest as well.I was looking at an HJ61 a while ago and I vaguely remember someone telling me there is a difference with the auto in the TD. Maybe the valve body?
I will get pics of the box’s they came inWould it be possible to share the part numbers for the Magnaflo system you installed, please.
