    Built the perches out of solid block so I won't have a slide in lift block sitting between the perch and the spring. I'll weld these directly to the axle once I get the driveline angle established.
    Been picking away at stuff every night lately, feels good to finally make some headway on my own projects, always seem to be bogged down with other peoples stuff and problems.

    Had to machine the tracklok rear lsd to use a tone ring for speed pickup.FB_IMG_1594000865160.jpg
    Made some dummy bearings, the hard material and carbide are pretty exciting.

    I hope I have the disposable cash to buy this when you're ready to sell it.

    That front carrier looks like it got up close and personal with the pinion at some point.

    Yes, the front diff had at some point, suffered a serious injury, probably the pinion yoke nut came loose and the pinion dropped into the case. It was put back together by someone that had no idea what they were doing. There was no carrier bearing preload at all, the oil slingers were missing,and the original gears had about .030 of backlash. I may put a truetrac in the front in the future.

    Stuck for parts and time now. Too busy at work to do any real grunt work on the project, and I have had parts on order for 8 months now, what a shit year for doing a build.
