I installed the OD trans last week and today picked up the driveshaft and will install it tomorrow (Tuesday) and take it on a test drive.

Hey remember how my spedometer was always reading real high? Remember how I was holding off buying a set of speedo gears until I had the 4:10 diff I wanted?

Well, after we put that diff in that I bought from you - the speedo is spot on! I'm guessing that the van that the 700r4 came out of had a 4:10 in it too.
The thought had occurred to me that might be the case, but I never "luck-out" like that so I dismissed it. What a pleasant surprise!

You have just discovered on your own one major advantage to being a pessimist. Pessimists are never disappointed, and occasionally they are pleasantly surprised.

Damn. That should be worth an extra $100. You know where to send the check.. I am going to go install my new pull cable now for my trans.

What kind of cable did you get for your OD?

Just an aftermarket cable from Dorman. I installed it to the dash so far. I just didn't feel like crawling under the truck yesterday.

Hooked up. Now I just have to replace my headlights. I also found the other fill plug and filled the back of the trans up.

-I stuck a wrench up it's tail pipe for giving so much issues with shifting through the gears.

I'm also thinking about stickig a zbar up it's tailpipe as well.

The other day I swapped out my voltage regulator and when I went to put the battery cable back onto the battery post, the clamp broke as I was tightening it.

Today was change the battery cable day, which involved me having to drop the starter, so yay that I had it up on the ramps.

Broke the little solenoid wire, fixed that, got the new cable snugged down and routed. Bolted starter up, hooked up battery cable, lights and radio came on, electric fuel pump was humming and then no starter action.

now what?

After checking and troubleshooting several things, I realized that somehow I put the small solenoid wire on the wrong post.

jeez. I think maybe I should stop working on things. haha.

Got that swapped over, put battery cable back on and hit the switch : vrooom!

Yay.

Happy Wrenchin' everyone.
