My project is moving along slowly. I'm using an LS3 small block with a 4WD GM 4L80e transmission, Marks adapter and LT230 transfer case. The Marks adapter was unavailable for a while because they were redesigning it. There is one guy at AA that deals with Marks and he is who you need to talk with at AA. I've pulled the engine back as far as the bulkhead permits. The LT230 is about 10" back from its original position. I decided my rear drive shaft would be too short with a 100" wheelbase and went with a 110" wheelbase instead. The cutout in the tranny allows a stock driveshaft, but not a double cardon.

Thx Chris.

Guess that explains the confusion on its availability then. I think I have the name of the guy I need to talk to at AA this time so I will get back with them and see what they say.

Sounds like I have my work cut out for me squeezing this into a 90". But its been done so I guess its possible.
