What lead me to the problem was the vibration
when I got on it, wicked doesn't begin to come
close to discribing it... So for my lunch hour
today I spent a bit of time gathering data at
work today, basicly going around measuring
pinion angles of various vehicles in the parking
lot. Most of them were stock, but a couple are
somewhere between mild and wild street cars,
one of them is the equivilent of the Capri, it's
a mid '80s Mustang with a 347, T5, and 3.70:1
gearing, his pinion is set at 6* down, while the
tranny is 2.5* down, so I think I'm on the right
track, all I have to do is find/build a 13* shim,
I'll let you know how it goes...
