Hey guys, I haven't been around in a looong time but I'm stepping back in if y'all will have me!

A lot of you long timers know me and a lot of new folks don't, but I'm the guy at the bottom of the page under "Moderator"

What a long strange trip it's been since 2009 when the economy crumbled, moved from our home in Vacaville California to Bakersfield then to Houston Texas and now just north of Dallas. It's great to be back in Texas where my roots are. I miss my CT pals! I'm resuming my work on the ol' '66 and starting a new chapter in my life.

Of course we are happy to have you rejoin us. Welcome back! I'm sorry to hear you had to move from CA to TX, although you might like the politics in TX better than in CA, depending on whether you lean left or right.

I moved to CA strictly for the weather, and that's the only reason I am staying here.

It's funny that I popped back in again just to ask you a radiator question. Did you ever us that A/C unit I sent you?

Hey Greg,
welcome back. I actually haven't been on for a bunch, also. Just put a 700r4 in the old truck and looking for x member info and my search brought me here. Happy to hear you're doing well out of CA.

Thanks Kev, I haven't seen you in forever! I still have the first RNS poster you did for us!

I put that tranny under mine too a few years back. If I remember right, it used the same cross member just had to move it toward the back about 3/4" to get everything to match up right.

I still have the first RNS poster also. The stock automatic cross member will work with the 700r4. Like he said you will have to move it back and possibly re drill the holes. It seems all the automatics use the same mount also.
