Re: Torque for Transit Wheels?

it also should be noted that some folks who thought tighter was better had to buy new rims. You can search and see where they cracked the rims at the lug holes from being too tight and also using the wrong lug nuts.

Re: That alternating harmonic of the drivetrain

well I am down the well worn road. To date I have no known ill effects but I am sure it is causing faster wear on other parts of the differential and transfer case. Replacing them is on my VERY short list of things to do. I had the work done on my 710 and I would venture that over 80% of the issue w...

Re: That alternating harmonic of the drivetrain

from what I have seen it is a combination of a couple things. The driveshaft was not balanced as well as you would think, in most cases just a piece of metal welded at a point determined by a rough balancing system. the compounding issue is the carrier bearings getting a little sloppy form wear. the...

Re: Smart Car Seats

for heat shield I am fortunate enough to still have some lead sheet. I use it a lot to keep sparks and heat away from things I don't want to get too hot. It is very moldable and real easy to form into any shape I need. even make it fit between material and supports when needed. works better then my ...

Re: Smart Car Seats

personally I mount mine with the frame only. never understand the idea of keeping the sliders and sitting a couple inches higher. with seat backs that actually lean forward and as small as the cab is in a pinz there really is no need to slide seat forward and back. I want the seat pan of the "donor"...

Re: Four 6mm bolts near top of windshield?

as you can see we carried the supports down to the hinge bolts and secured the rack at the top with the four bolts then land on the antenna mount. Have seen photos with spare tires on this rack along with a rack that was purposely built to carry the spare tire.

Re: Four 6mm bolts near top of windshield?

actually if you check your manuals you will see that there was an optional roof rack available. I built one using the same mounting points. I copied the design that was in the book as close as I could. worked very well.

Re: Ignition Timing

in the early models the SSI had a switch for on road and off road. you could advance it manually a little. not many used the option and it just made the system a little more complicated for little gain. I just run mine slightly advanced all the time and get a little better performance.

Re: Doetsch tech shocks

That is the ones. Rebuilt them several times before realizing I was wasting my time and money. Soured me on buying any doestch shocks ever again.
