Bulkhead

I won't need this for a little while but collecting parts for my rebuild and don't want to miss one like I did last week.

My plan is to get it galvanised and I can do some fabrication work so perfect isn't needed. Something in the northeast / New England area would be great so I could do a pick up (I am guessing one would fit in the back of a Suburban).

Thanks in advance

One fits in the back of a jetta sportwagen, you can also ship one grayhound for ~$100 so don't limit your search to driving distance.

Thanks Ron - I'm guessing if it can fit in the back of a Jetta wagen, that one person can move it around as well? Good point on the Greyhound transport too.

Yes, but they are cumbersome to move by oneself. Much easier with a helping hand.

The one from Nh came to me on the roof rack of a d2. Scott got it up there by himself.

Possible if it is a bare bulkhead. I bought a junior associate to the grayhound station to help me load mine though.

I transported my bulkhead to Bossman's place in my Honda CRV, so it will easily fit in your Suburban.

Can one person lift it? Yes. Total weight is maybe...60-80lbs? Not sure exactly. I fitted my bulkhead to my frame on my own and I am not a really big person.

Sounds like I'd be able to maneuver it, if needed. Will stretch the back out before hand tho :D

Thanks for the info guys and I might have a line on one :

Will also fit in the backseat of a VW Cabrio convertible. 3.9 l long block will also fit in the front seat. It's a wonder I'm still married.

Like the "What have you hauled in your Rover?" thread there should be one titled "What big Rover part have you hauled?" Yours takes the cake - VW Cabs aren't much bigger than a golf cart. I have no idea how you hauled that stuff in it!

109 rear axle in the truck of a 1990 Honda accord with one end sticking through the pass through for the fold down seat. 88 rear tub on top of the roof of the same car. 109 dormobile roof on my RRC LWB. An entire 95 d90 drivetrain on a pallet (engine trans and Tcase) in one piece in the back of the lwb.

Damn Ron those are some good ones! Don't you have a Suburban? That tub on the top of the Honda must have had some people looking.

My father has the suburban. I have an old picture of the tub on the Honda somewhere. It was 1999.

I am still trying to figure if I want to go LHD or keep it RHD. Most likely short R380.

Needs repair is fine - I want to get a new tranny so will need to keep bulkhead costs down. But I should be able to repair most anything and will get it galvanized once done.

Someone has one and is pretty near a Greyhound station.

This may sound elementary, but what is the process for shipping through Greyhound? Just bring the item to the station and hand off with the receiving station? Do they give you a tracking number? Thanks in advance for any info on it.

Yes. Wrap it in cardboard and tape. They drop it off. You get a tracking number. They call you when it shows up and you go grab it. Just got a bulkhead from mike and it was $100 and a bumper from the west coast is in route and it was $122.
