Coincidentally enough our pastor (who has an arrest record x2 from outside an abortion clinic) covered this topic very well in imo during his weekly podcast yesterday. Worth a listen if you have time.

Doesn't help him much, that you have those,  if he doesn't.
Yea, that's right, forgot GLO had those things. Shawn sent me a set for SquareD

I'd be up to PURCHASE a set if you have them Shawn.

Oh and you'll like this. I put one of the GLO decals on the hub in the middle of the spare tire hub. Looks right at home there!

No speaka englash!

Good deal on decal location......

Confirm a couple things Don, does the yoke have spicer cast into it? Is that u-joint cap in that yoke 1350 or 1410 and if you measure across the cap it should measure 1.8125 roughly. If so I’m good to sell you a set, but they’re pricey fair warning!  :tongue:

JR, if those handles on bottom corner of each bucket are welded decent you won’t need hooks on bucket. Wrap chain over top of bucket lip and run chain thru the handles and loop back into itself.

But, I am not liking how the U-joint saddles do not bolt down flush to the saddle in the diff yoke. Going to have to do something about that

Bet I have a set of girdles for that yoke..... :wink:

Technically we have bolt on options for some Dana 70’s, just not yours Turner!  :popcorn:

Likely excuse!!!!

Possible..... With that said I dislike Dana 70's from a brake conversion standpoint. Turner is just complicated in general and I think he will readily admit it. So why shouldn't his truck be that way too?  :popcorn:

I'll have to look at this setup Shawn.

Perhaps if the stock stuff won't fit are we thinking of just running another caliper on the same rotor with the bolt spacing I currently have?

Might be an option, but need to go over some dimensions of things when you’re near it probably.
If I do this, do you have the calipers and kit stuff or just the stuff minus the calipers??

I can supply all or partial let’s talk and we’ll figure best course. Maybe tomorrow?

You wouldn't need to run fluid to the caddy caliper once it was pressurized.  I believe those pistons don't retract after closing the pad gap. ..they have a threaded ratchet type mechanism and iirc the ebrake lever is adjustable..a splines shaft. Been a while since I dealt with those...same as vette.

I believe that is correct.

True, did them on a 9.5 axle, worked great. Not sure if they are rated for the 8k sub though!

They are a 3/4 ton front truck caliper essentially, same piston size just has built in ebrake capability

They may have used separate spot calipers for parking brake was my thinking. Two separate systems, one for parking and one for stopping. Granted parking can always be used for stopping in emergency.

Don, got another idea. What’s the hole spacing center to center on those fancy dual caliper mounts?
Factory Chevy caliper spacing, need me to measure?

You thinking of adapting one of those mechanical calipers to the bracket? I have thought about that too.

Couple options there but yeah, center to center should be like 7.125 I’m thinking. I have several versions of 3/8” caliper stands with that spacing to take the 3/4 ton truck calipers and or the 76-78 eldorado ebrake calipers and have the actuation kits for those calipers in stock too.

Mork impression?

I bought a set of those once, they’re called clown suspenders. They hired a new production manager at my old shop. He was near retirement, great resume but guy wasn’t worth two nickels. I had his number by the second day. He had a nervous habit of always pulling up his pants. So I bought him a set and stuck them in his desk drawer a couple weeks into his job at about 4 am on my way to one of our other plants. Guess he came out of his office with them and asked if anyone knew who these suspenders belonged to......  :popcorn:

I think the Chevy will go down the road around $3k  At that price point it will run and drive.  Bring a trailer, it will still need rubber....and refinement. LoL  Engine is out right now getting some work done to it to make it reliable and semi fresh.

If it doesn't sell at that price point, I will put some 1 ton axles I have and other parts in it and move it higher.

KooT, What ever happened to the yellow truck? Did you end up selling or upgrading it? Do you have a 454 and Auto Trans to put into it? :)

Spoke to Norm today, he’s been busy planting. Week or two ago he mentioned he had sold it.

My very first car was a '48 Willy's with a 4 Flathead. Had a burned valve so my Dad and I fixed that and I drove to High School. I don't see a category trying to spin all four wheels in low range by dumping the clutch and frying it. Some kids are just dumb.  :knucklehead:

I think I would score in the upper 300's. I didn't roll it though.

Lol, my second vehicle was a gmc s15 on 31’s, smoked the clutch a week after buying it wheeling some deep snowy hills (aka not knowing how to drive a stick).....

Gave the ultimate for others.

What more can you add.

His Dad’s speech was amazing I thought. Have no doubt the Dad has angels either side of him  holding him up through that.

Not including jeeps, I scored 550.

Never rolled, never driven topless. I did run over a VW bug off roading once,,,,,,,,,

Well, I think driving over a German toy is worth extra bonus points!  :tongue:

Only thing that could top that is Ken driving over his gf.....

Technically, I counted rolling my eb so I say it’s fair game. Although I’ve rolled it several times so I really think I should get bonus points because mo body damage!

Well, I know at least one guy besides me who can play this game and his name begins with a D.  :popcorn: FYI mulch beds don’t count as off road

Hey guys, my better half was admitted to her hospital yesterday. We had a long 24 hours day before with two er visits and then finally admitting her yesterday afternoon. She has a 4mm kidney stone that is causing some issues as she tries to pass it. As of 1pm mst today she will be going under general anesthetic and having it removed according to her urologist. That is unless she successfully passes it first. If you could keep in your prayers it would be appreciated. I’ve been told it is every bit as painful as child birth and from her anger and doubling over in pain I am not doubting it in the least. Thanks
