    As I was coasting back to the pits last weekend after losing in the 3rd round..I hear a clunk..clunk...finally got car off trailer yesterday....turning tires my hand there is a spot where It stops and I have to give it a big yank...probably the good old ring gear eating teeth..

    Could not last one more month until I swap out for Strange Dana 60.....

    Got a 4.30 gear with spool to use for the next 3 or 4 weekend in a roll....

    ordered new ladder bar brackets and lower shock mounts for dana yesterday....

        No...the Duster still has one...it has a Moser Fab 875.....it twisted the housing couple of years ago...and easier and cheaper to buy that then to find an A body 8 3/4 housing since the housing in the car was narrowed....dam hoarders want an arm and leg for them.....Probably swap that one out next year...

        Getting the Dana squared to the frame rails.....that rubber mallet does nothing to move that dana a hair left or right...LOL...

        Everything is going good....just need to make sure ladder bars are parallel to each other and the frame rail....then it is burn time...got to get new driveshaft and lower shock mounts need to be welded on to axle tubes..

              Do you happen to have pictures of the front ladder bar crossmember? I'm in the process of installing L/Bs in my 66 Dart. What length L/B's do you run?

                  Thanks! I'm curious where on the frame rails the crossmember lands.

                  I welded an addition plate on to the frame rail where the front crossmember is located. Had to do it on all 3 cars to get the ladder bars level...my frame rails are 2 x 3 square tubing with the 2 inch being vertical...

                  Well that new driveshaft....cost me .15 of a second.....some how I said 3.5 inch diameter instead of 3 inch.....going to run it for a while then order a new one...found out a friend works there and can get me a better price on it....Might even look at the cost of an aluminum shaft...

                  Loaded and heading out to the track this morning...suppose to hit 100 degrees today...and races start at noon....oh joy...Usually by now I have quit for the year and just let the kids race but they have not raced much this year...and I am doing pretty good in the points...the girl the keep the points needs to correct the list as she gave my points from last saturday to Tonya ...instead of Tony...I have already missed the two races that are allowed and everyone in front of me have not....so figuring that in I am sitting around 8th place would like to get into the top 5...

                  I doubt the driveshaft slowed you that much... that said, I'm ordering a 3.5" aluminum shaft tomorrow for $600 and some change. Every part/change I've done to the car since I've had it has leaned toward the lighter of whatever part I'm buying. "IF" you still ran 7290 joints I'd have just the chrome molly 3" shaft for you :)

                  Inland said 3.5 would work for me. i'll probably have to modify my driveshaft hoop though.
