Re: Easy 3 link front diff patrol

I cant see it properly in the pic but Im hoping youve welded a crush tube into the chassis so the bolt runs thru it rather than welding a bolt to the chassis? How much does the pinnion angle change during suspension travel/cycling? I thought about doing this with my last truck but never got that far...

Re: 60 series transfer case wanted

Only difference is the idler shaft size and manual or vacuum activated 4wd selector, early 60s had 34mm shaft and manual linkages, while the later 60s and 70s had 38mm idler shafts and vac operated 4wd selector. I believe 85 was the changeover year as well.

Re: Shroud or Bigger Fan???

Shrouded always, then the fan is forced to draw air thru the radiator, without a shroud it will pull air from around the rad, or whatever gives the least resistance, greatly reducing it's efficiency

If you want to stiffen them up I'd weld a piece of flat bar or box section in between the two plates. I don't think a welded pin would last very long before the weld cracked
