Grumm, looks like great progress.   cheers
Is there a chance for 2018?
It seemed like there was quite a bit to take care of.

Thanks for the tour, Don

Decent help is boring.

Raunchy help gets results.

That chassis plate sure is a thick mutha! Are you going to be able to pull the trans without pulling engine or diff?

  Sid.

No Is the answer
the gearbox isn,t or shouldn't be a problem
the issue is always the diff. If we wand to change the final drive ratio, we have to pull the motor
I'm working on this. 

And Stan, I'm might have an issue with the shared drive that the pics are in. I'm looking into it

I agree the trans is probably bullet proof, I was thinking more if you had a clutch issue. You could cut that plate down both sides & make it a bolt in.
What have you had fail in the 10 bolt?
Crack test used gears before you run them & there's a curdle available for the 7.5 10 bolt that prevents housing flex & supports the carrier caps, worth the money on these little diff's.

Nothing has failed on the 7.5's we had a pinion nut come loose on it once but nothing has let go. The only reason to go in there is ratio changes.

We now put a spot weld our pinion nuts.

I have made my 7.5 rear axle so that I can pull it out the back of the car. I change complete axle housings, to change gear ratios using the same axles backing plates and brake drums--using a quick disconnect fitting in the brake line makes the brake bleeding much faster with a lot less fluid lost.
