I remounted the steering box and worked on the lines and steering shaft modifications to make it better i hope. I also dropped the radiator, pulled the efan and installed the mechanical fan and shroud. Hooked all that up and assembled the loose engine stuff.

Alright pics...

D44 under the truck...






I redid the upper coil mounts


Kind of an illusion but its actually narrower or is supposed to be then the rear


Driveshaft shortened and hooked up the 1330 yoke that I put on the D60


Manual 1354

I am not sure. you can just here the chain sloping around. i have not dropped it out yet. i have too many things going on at once so i am leaving it in there until I get to drive it. then i will drop it and figure out what i am doing with all that stuff.

comparing both cases this manual one is in much better (tighter) condition than mine. it also makes no noises.
