Thanks Harold. I'm glad to be the one to put this back on the road after almost 40 years in pieces. Gordy

Mine is a "Work in Progress". I'm driving it while it progresses, but I'm getting pretty tired of people calling it a Rat Rod...

Here's mine. BTW, I think 52merc was saying that in jest. He just likes pictures as we all do.

KAHUNA - Sometimes I think that the stage that your first picture shows is the best. After that stage, things start to get complicated...

Hi Whitey
It's a Gear Vendors unit that I adapted to the transmission. The adapter is just forward of the O/D and looks to be about 1 1/2" long. It is actually 3 1/2 inches but most is inside the transfer case adapter. Maybe it'll run in another month or so. Here's some pics of the adapter and coupler. The transmission is a Jeep T-176 case, with Ford toploader 4 speed gears. One of the pics shows the Jeep transfer case adapter converted for use with the GV unit. Hope this makes a bit of sense. It's all untried at this point.
Jim
