07-22-2016 01:33 PM Battery box mods
After posting on the forum about a battery charging issue, getting a lot of opinions, and darn near starting WW III. I changed the alternator battery wire from 10 gauge to 4 gauge. I up graded to an AGM Group 78 battery, but it would not fit my drop out battery box. The battery itself would fit the box but the handle wouldn’t. The sales man told me it I cut the sides of the battery to make it fit would void my warranty. So I had to modify the box.

05-13-2016 04:17 PM Engine hoist + winch =
As stated many times I usually work by myself. So when I needed to change my transmission I needed a way to lift and hold it. I could crawl in and out of my truck to pump and release the hoist, that was not happening, I had a winch laying around the shop and I got an idea. I found a piece of angle iron that would fit into the square tube on my hoist and mounted my winch to it. Raising and lowering the transmission was as simple as pushing a button.

05-13-2016 04:14 PM Updates to brake and clutch return springs
I got a lot of questions at shows about the size of my springs. My buddy had me machine an adapter for his master cylinder to put a spring over the brake rod. I didn’t have enough clearance to do the same to mine. So I came up with this. It opened up the engine compartment and looks much better.

Ok I got it all together and was reviewing my pictures one night and the fill plug looked like it was too low. The next day I double checked by measuring both of my T5s and found that the Camaro was lower by about an inch. I believe that GM did this to accommodate the 15 deg. tilt of their T5. Luckily GM and Ford used the same case casting for their T5s and there is a boss at the same height as my S10 T5. Unfortunately to drill and tap it l had to remove the top cover and turn it upside down to keep chips from getting into the gears.

In a previous entry I didn’t have a picture of the speedo gear and clamps installed. So here you go. Sorry but it is only two entries off.
