Awesome Nick...That makes a lot of sense. I'm on it next time it is in the shop. I still haven't loaded the last tune you sent me to deal with the tach. Appreciate It!

2wd 6l80

I see people have cut the output shaft on a 4l80 and was wondering could you convert a 2wd to 4wd 6l80 by cutting a 2wd shaft and add the 4wd flange?

Please let it be this simple.

Give or take, there are a couple of core plugs needed as well, written up in my build here...

The 25 housings were just shipping from the foundry. They have to be machined, then shipped to me. Looks like two more weeks.

Smile will she take it!!!

hi every one,
I'm running an rpi stageIII 4.6 v8 , and I'm going ahead with the swap, why? thats a discussion on its own and i don't want to pollute this amazing discussion.
.i have a question regarding if my diffs and shafts will take the extra grunt from a 6.2,
i read on the discussion (can't remember which page) that it would be sensible to upgrade the diffs and shafts. my diffs and shafts were supplied by ashcroft about 2 yrs ago. the diffs are ring and pinion 4.12 ratio front and rears with heavy duty aschcroft half shafts, heavy duty flanges and cv joints.
the transfer case is limited slip 230 at a ratio of 1.22.
your opinions please as I'm restoring a 130 and would like to order her diffs etc soon and don't wanna make any expensive mistakes.


thanks in advance
swaini

That depends on how you use it. It will be fine on the road. Off road use is the question and depends on the type of wheeling and how much you like to play with the right pedal.

What differentials do you have? You say shafts, flanges, R&P and CVs, but nothing about differentials.

Transmission Bracket

Can someone shoot a pic of where Part 3 (as called for in the BOM) is used in the build?

which looks like

Seems like there are several pics of the drivers side mounts in the thread but I did not come across any of this used on the passenger side. My drivetrain is in and I did not use this part, but rather #5. I cannot see how #3 is used so either I am wrong or I have an old/inaccurate BOM.

Picture is not accurate. Right side lt230 mount should be a flat plate. Get everything from a D1.

Bom

2 question and more to come

1.Please explain, I have #1,6 bracket from my BOM list. I do not have #3. If this is not the correct bracket then what 3 brackets do I need?

2. My ashcroft transfer case has a stud bolt in the way of Nicks adapter...do I pull this stud?

Thanks for clarification.

Just be aware that that connection and the one below it go into the case. The bolts must have thread sealant or you will get a leak. The upper one that has the stud currently is in front of a gear. Make sure the bolt you use is not too long or it will hit the gear.

I do not think the diagram is accurate. I removed everything from a D1 with an auto trans and ended up with a bracket that looks identical to #5 for the right side. Everything lined up fine with the stock holes in the frame.

Ok gotcha, Thread sealer on top/ bottom bolts and 2 dowels.

1.I removed the stud bolt on the transfer case but I still can not rotate the adapter to the correct position as the shift lever is in the way. What am I doing wrong?

2. Just got my Lokar pedal assembly today. Can someone shine some light on what it takes to wire it up?

Thanks everyone for the helpful info....I hope my question help others with there build.

1. Slide it on oriented correctly. You won't be able to rotate it into position.
Bolt it to the transmission first.

2. Plug it in.

Shift the range shifter up. Are you sure it is installed right? I thought the shifter did not go that low and that it should be vertical for the neutral position.
