Transmission is at Pat's, all of the parts are in, finally got a 27 spline input shaft from a guy on Pirate that I paid him for on the 6th of March. Didn't think I would ever see it. That is the deciding factor on the adapter I need, & which trans. output shaft I need to use. Now we can start putting the trans. back together. Re bearinged my rear detroit this weekend, & installed it in my new housing tonight. Everything went together well, looks like that hybrid rear axle will work out OK. Pics to follow!!
In memory of ONETON72GMC RIP Gary, watch over us when we are in the woods.
