We. Had it at the shop and tinkered with it here and there while I was working on another rig so the job seemed like it was taking a while

image.jpg

And more work poured in then we decided screw it lets finish.

New tires were ordered and new lighter rims



image.jpg

The motor was set in place and the old frame rails had to be removed. The fire wall was cut out and the engine was pushed into the cab. We wanted to move the weight back as far as we could

In our last build of this rig I cut 8 inches of depth out of the belly so I left no room for anything. It was all Suzuki drive train and that's all that would fit. Now we had to fit an atlas a power glide and bigger drive shafts sitting in different spots



image.jpg

It didn't seem that bad until we started to try and make the everything fit while bolted together.

We lucked out and the old front drive shaft worked out. We just remove bed the flange and it bolted right to the atlas the placement of the t- case was perfect we didn't have to change he the shaft length at all. Which was cool because it uses and intermediate shaft with a pillow block. The floor was cut out to allow more room for the shaft and it gave us more droop out of the shaft than we got before


image.jpg


The rear shaft needed to be 2 inches extended 2"
And the flange was machined to fit the atlas

Motors are so easy to swap in. Especially ones that everyone says they've done and then it turns out there no parts that fit this motor because no one has used it for this application. Hours of searching and talking to people to save time on the install are flushed down the drain when the parts show up and nothing fits. So hours are spent retro fitting and making new parts. It'll be worth it. Just I could have finished the rig in the time it took us to make everything for the motor

Super Charger looks like a roots blower. Curious how the lobes are timed? Most blowers are timed on the none drive end with shims behind the gears. Is this the same idea?
