OK, it's a reference I've had for a while now ... maybe something changed but the picture should help.

Yeah I tried it again and still nothing until i removed the www. Now it works great, thanks.

Mine must be a THM350 because it doesn't have that extra adjustment bolt.

the guy who was going to come over last weekend to change rears couldn't make it and he couldn't make it this weekend either. I'm going to continue doing other things like taking the frame to get sandblasted, working on the cab, clean and paint the engine, etc. when the time comes to decide if I replace the rear or keep the Ford rear then I'll make the call. Here are the pros and cons of replacing with the T/A rear:

PROS-

-disc brakes in rear

-emergency brake system

-all 4 wheels would be same bolt pattern (currently GM front and Ford rear) so they'd be interchangeable if needed. Of course if I have wider in back it's not a big deal anyway since i won't mount them in front anyway.



CONS-

-still waiting for the guy who knows how to do it

-need to change the master cylinder and proportioning valve

Yes it's always a challenge if your relying on somebody. On your Pro and Con list...Don't forget that the Ford diff is already in the truck. I know just one more thing to think about.

If I keep the Ford rear :

PROS-

-already installed and working fine

-resell the TransAm for the same or higher price and use that money toward the rebuild

-No need to change Master Cylinder or proportioning valve

-no need to wait for anyone and I keep doing my restore


CONS-

-no disc brake in rear

-Need to buy an emergency brake system


I'm starting to convince myself. I guess I'll wait for that moment and then pull the trigger.

These are actually the joys of building a vehicle for yourself...sometimes it's overwhelming but in the end when you stand back and look at it, it is worth all the effort your putting in now. The hardest thing about what I do is giving the keys back to the customer after I've poured my heart and soul into a project. Sometimes I just go and look at my own little collection just to get over it.

It must be hard to do. At least you have other cars you've done and that takes part of the sting off of it I guess.

It gets overwhelming but like you say I take a step back and remind myself that I have another car and this one is not needed. It's my toy so I want to do it correctly no matter how long it takes.

It does take the sting out of it as you say and I've made life long friends along the way all across the country. The next project I'm on is coming to me because of a build I did for this fellow a long time ago and close to 1,500 miles away from where I am now. So gratification can be measured in many ways, money, although it is important, it would never replace the relationships this trade has built for me. I guess that's another reason I enjoy it so much. It's been in my blood from an early age.

I can't remember if it was this thread or another one but I said that sometimes I feel like the luckiest guy in the world. I have a job that I love, It's challenging and makes me think every day, I work the hours I want, I choose what I work on and in the end they pay me. It's like a hobby with fringe benefits.

I feel that way too. I love my job even though it was just named one of the top 10 most dangerous jobs in the world (helicopter air ambulance). I get to fly, help people that really need it, and on top of that get paid.

I totally understand how you feel.

How did you ever get into flying helicopters? I got into cars because my dad was a mechanic and needed cheap labor.
