I had a 2:76 in the '47 and liked it real well but we did a lot of interstate driving with it.

Is your Muncie an M20 with 2.52 first gear ? An M21 with 2.20 first will need slippage to get started with a 3.0

He had a 3rd center section only with 3.36 gears that I was thinking of buying but wanted to see what I had in the other 2 first.
I pulled the non-posi first and it is 3.08 ratio. Not really what I was hoping for, and I was going to call the guy and tell him I would buy the 3.36 section. I then decided to see what was actually in the posi, so I pulled that and it has 3.36 gears !!! I have no idea how he thought they were 4.10, but I'm happy with 3.36. I now have an open drive axle for the '54. I'll look for an S10 5 speed over the winter, cheap, and have this on the road next summer..

it's kind of like how you would with a cutt off wheel, moving it back and forth, but since it's a belt it's subtle and more thorough. It cuts thru welds really well. Then you change belts to the fabric type prep belts for spot welds or before you plug weld. They're really nice.

I also decided to stick with the spot cutter drill for works. When there's a welding job I can go to the front and ask for a bit and give them the RO number. For home use/side jobs, I wouldn't use it though. The bits are just too pricey.

They can hit the streets downtown with the rest of the bums.

Now if you have any illegal Mexicans, I could use a couple of them. I know they will work hard at least.

There are none hanging around out in the HD parking lot for hire up here.

deadbodyman Maybe less Puggs. From what I hear theres going to be a lot of American help moving to Canada, All democrats though, you might not be able to get much work out of them, but at least they can tell you what it is your doing wrong and how it should be done. and when that don't work they can show you how to blame everyone else when it things don't go right.

On another Note you said a year away from moving in? I thought you were coming down the home stretch..
Thanks.

2 months to moving in and then another year to go after that.

It's just a tidy and clean way to do things. I just had to have one I guess. ahahha

Thanks.

I would also like a nice porch to sit on.
If you look at the first pic, you'll notice that I live on one of the busiest streets in town. It was just widened to 3 lanes and I'm sure the 4th lane will be coming soon putting the street about 30' from my porch. Too noisy to sit out there.

The whole thing is to just make the house appear more heritage.
