Re: Need advice on dealing with asshats

I would cancel the order out of spite if nothing else. :D But seriously, they can contact their supplier and find out where it is at. If it was something that was supposed to be shipped to them, and it didn't show up, they would not pay either, and would expect the supplier to tell them where the pr...

Re: 40C right final drive

Sounds like oil contamination, but if you can continually keep tightening it up, there is a larger mechanical issue.
Either way, you are looking at a tear down.

Re: Need advice on dealing with asshats

Be careful. If the first supplier can prove delivery, even if it is late, and you decline payment, that is considered theft. All they have to do is file a police report, submit it to the credit card company, and you will end up paying. Call them up, cancel the order, get cancellation confirmation fi...

Re: 350 steering

Tell him to look under the seat for the steering boosters.
At one time, a buddy of mine know of a complete NOS power steering kit for a 350 straight. Trouble was, the guy wanted $3000 for it.

Re: 350 steering

It was available on straights as well. Early ones had a power steering pump on the front of the engine, later ones used hyd system pressure. Mine had the pump with reservoir.

Re: Heating Your Home

When I was in high school, they told us then there was 1000 years of coal under ND alone at current rates of consumption. Never toured the mines here, but if you are within 5 miles of one, you can see the booms of the draglines above the horizon.

Re: Heating Your Home

I am fortunate here, when we built in 97-98, natural gas was just coming in the area. Our rates are cheap enough that nothing else is even in the ballpark other than coal because we have cheap coal too. But, coal is not a good fit for me, so gas it is. Propane fluctuates quite a bit here, but if you...

Re: 350 B Track

They would need to sit in water for a couple days minimum, week is probably better. If you can drive it around in the water, that is even better once they have loosened up.

Re: Early and Late 440 Final Drive Housing Interchangeability

Late trans does not necessarily mean late housing, it could have either. Depends on serial number, late trans started at 448, late final started at about 456.

Re: 450 straight transmission

While the later trans might bolt in, there would be a lot of other incidentals that would have to go in at the same time would think. Especially when going from a gear drive to an HLR. Direct bolt in and go, I highly doubt.
