Got around 8k now on the gen III. Going strong. Since this set up uses the BW1339 t case I am getting what is called chain slap on hard take off. Nick and I had to use a used morse chain back when we did the swap as the Chinese chain was comoing apart that nick had less A 1000 miles on it. There is a company in Tacoma, BJ's off-road (I Believe) that sells a US made chain. I am also running a locker in the rear and going to switch to a LSD as I think the locker is a lot harder on the hp/t-case combo. No complaints whatsoever on doing this swap. It is awesome!

Major milestone reached.....







Good clearance to the front x-member too, so that won't need to be reworked.



Well pleased

Looks like it missed this one.... the Hooker headers are going dump right onto the clutch slave cylinder....



Need to review options now... quickest is to swap to an internal slave but I'll have to mod the NV as the early ones were external only or find some other headers that'll fit.... or custom st/st headers... ???

Are those ports symmetrical? Can you put a right side exhaust manifold on the left side and have the outlet at the front of the engine?

Yes, but then the passenger side would dump into the AC compressor. Going to see if I can loan some different OEM ones before I do anything else... plenty of other stuff to be working on whilst I work this out.

Don't feel bad... I compleatly missed it in the first place. Won't work on the drivers side either, would dump into the steering box. One option is to fit a pull type slave cylinder or swap to an internal slave but that's not what I really want as it makes long term maintenance difficult.

Will ponder this for a while... Plenty more to work on.

Been hunting around the interweb looking at many pictures of exhaust manifolds and found these on a NV install in a Jeep....







Looks like they'll clear the engine mounts & have an email into Sanderson to get the dimension of the flange outer edge to the block. If it's tight can always cut it off & fit a V band couplings... might do that anyway cause they look cool

Got a reply back from Sanderson, they tell me the distance is approx. 5" as per this picture.



So, looks like they'll work ok, will prob get them bare... cut off the flange and add a short bend to get the 'V' band horizontal. That should make the 2 into 1 merge under the bell housing nice and neat.

Got my Russell -6 hose & fittings last week, made up the PAS hoses.... just the hydro assist to install now.



Happy I took the opportunity to move the engine & drive line back 1" from stock, I can squeeze in a pair of the Spal mid size fans now

This is the revised ECU mount, waiting for cut parts to arrive now



Got a hand full of serp belts & found one that fits nice with the Goatbuilt ALT & PAS mounts. It's a Dayco #5060805



Got the loom about finished, just need a few colors for the dash gauge sensors.

Been throwing round ideas in my head on the front & rear drive shafts, I was thinking of swapping out the t'case front & rear flanges to 1350 U joints, like this (pic's borrowed from Pirate4x4) :





However, that'd be adding quote a bit of cost just for the Ford 9" pinion yokes & machining to make fit plus the 1350 drive shafts are 50% more expensive than 1310's.

So, remembered that Philion used a split shaft on his comp truck with a Rakeway centre bearing :





So, that's the way I'm doing it, got a drawing of the bearing assy from Rakeway & will make up a mount to bolt onto the back of the existing 3 link x-member.

I'm thinking that with solid 1310's and not running over 35/37" tires we should be good... I guess time will tell !

Oh.... drool time over those Spidertrax axles........
