    Hello Gwaii~
    I am amongst the few who hoped to follow you through your GT12 build. I am building a v12 gt6 as well~ I am very curious to learn your research on how the chassis handled the Torque/HP and weight increases in respect to the modifications you've listed here.
    Hope to hear from you soon!

    it can be done....the key is to modify the input on the 5-speed to have a female spline that matches the output of the auto.then an adapted tailshaft housing can be made to bolt the two together.that's essentially what I did.

    Hey Gwaii, I'm contemplating a volvo 2.8 with an AW71 automatic mated to the stock five speed. I am trying to figure out how you aligned the two trannys. The big issue is that I dont think I can physically connect them to each other head to tail. So thoughts if any.

    the face of the second transmission was drilled to match the bolt pattern of a transfer case,so it just bolts to the back of the first one.the real work was in modifying the input shaft,there are pics in the thread.

    Hey Gwaii how's it going? I really like the fishing thread you posted, I was on Vancouver island for 2 weeks 2 years ago and wish I never left. Any progress on the super ranger lately? I have a question about it: the adapters you made to mate the two NP435's together, were they fabbed or machined? could you please send me a picture or two on them? I'm still compiling parts for my build and I'm thinking of mating an AOD to an NP435 with a married NP205 to get some real low crawling gears.

    it's just a bar that the spring slides on.it does wear a little,which i guess a roller would do a bit less,but it's not enough to be a problem.after years of use it's got about 1/16'' of wear on it.

    hey like the ranger i took your idea on the front suspension " the wisbone arms" and put it on my ranger and went wheelin on sunday and that idea is the best i have seen and i want to run the same suspension in the rear with a transverse leaf so there is no limit in drop. i have a question on were the bracket on the axle to the leaf spring? are you running a round bar welded to the stand so it slides or are you running roller like a roller farelead on a winch?
