For some reason I never gat an email stating that there were any more posts to my original question.
Devastator, Good to have you on here. Would like to hear more about your project.
Thanks. Been a lurker for quite some time, but have been distracted with my fuel injection system. Now, that works great. So good in fact, I blew most of the teeth off of the ring gear in my tranny, (again).
1990 Chenowth 2LB frame. 2276 turbocharged, fuel injected engine, running on E85. Transform sandpro, type 1, tranny, (missing the aforementioned teeth). HD torsion bars, boxed tye 1 trailing arms, standard CV's, (only blown 3 of those so far). 1300plus STU paddle tires.
I have set the R/P gears in the sedan type 1 tranny very tight in order to keep it together this long, so I didn't drive it on the dirt very often. This sandrail sees 99% sand.
I busted open the piggy bank and bought a fully build Sand Pro 091, 6rib, bus tranny. I have 930 CV's and the matching stub axles. Now, I'm going to build 4x4 trailing arms and switch over to coilover shocks. Next, I'm going to cut the beam front end off and fab my own spindles and a-arms to bolt resevior emulsion shocks on the front.
Me: CNC programmer and journeyman machinist. Built first sandrail when I was 15 and still tinkering with them, (I'm now 42).
Well, that was ehxausting. Stay tuned....
