    M35a2 automatic transmission swap?

    On a cursory look at TM902520-246-34 the gear shaft diameters for the high and low both appear to have the same bore 2.3765" and key way size or .499" so swapping the gears around might just work

    M35a2 automatic transmission swap?

    I've got a line on a MT643 with PTO and hydraulic pump from behind a 12v 5.9, So I'll see about grabbing that this weekend. Now I cant seem to find any overdrive auxiliary transmissions, so I had funny idea on the overdrive transfer case idead Could the gears be reordered in a T136? swapped...

    Decision on a knuckle boom crane.

    While the knuckleboom would be more useful close in and is more agile, I'll typically be using this to load a unload gear from the bed to the rear or the side typically never out front (other than when I swap the multifuel for the 5.9) in the position the knuckle boom is in it will give me a...

    Decision on a knuckle boom crane.

    I've been working this slowly last few weeks, making a box that can hold the 24v pump and all the solenoids, plumbing and wiring in the space of the cranes old manual valves was a pain. And I got my 24v pump hooked up and its way to low of a GPM to run this even semi normally it takes over a...

    M35a2 automatic transmission swap?

    And I when to pick up the allison, and found a huge crack in the case and a crushed oil pan... I just cant win, the guy must have dropped it. Back to the drawing board maybe the MT643 and a Eaton 3-A-65 or maybe one of the other ones they make...

    M35a2 automatic transmission swap?

    Well I couldn't get the guy to part with the MD3060, but did find a allison 2400 on marketplace with shifter and computer that was behind a 24valve 5.9 in a freight liner. So now I'm reading through 40 pages of wiring info on 4btswaps on how to make it run behind a 12v. Wiring. Is. So. Much. Fun...

    M35a2 automatic transmission swap?

    I might have a line on a MD3060 that was in a F700 with a 5.9, I just need to see if I can talk the guy out of keeping it, "I might need that as a backup for my RV" (the RV hasn't moved in 15 years by the size of the trees in front and behind it), so I might be set a .66 overdrive would be great.

    M35a2 automatic transmission swap?

    I thought of the T1138 but she is a big beast, and way to expensive. And trying to find another over drive transfer case is harder than I thought unless I'm looking for a saturn overdrive for a T18

    M35a2 automatic transmission swap?

    Searching around the possibility of finding a HT70 is about zero, I called the two yards around Pittsburgh that I thought would even have a chance of having a 60-70 bus and they crushed them all years ago. Though the one guy at the yard that wont sell me any part I need because he keeps all...

    M35a2 automatic transmission swap?

    The MT643 is still a 1:1 in final gear which would limit a deuce to 55mph even with 395 tires.

    M35a2 automatic transmission swap?

    I do have a NV4500 laying around as a backup for my jeep, it wouldn't be enough for a vehicle with the deuces GVRW, and I do have a FS4502 and FS5406 eaton laying around but neither are overdrive. finding a FSO eaton is strangely hard for a decent prince (less than $2000-3000) Main reason is...

    M35a2 automatic transmission swap?

    Well I was sitting around thinking and since I'm swapping a Cummins 6bt 5.9 in my deuce (my multifuel in my M35a2 my multifuel runs fine) I was keeping the 6bt in storage incase the multifuel gave me more hydraulic head problems (2 spider clips, then a new hydraulic head all in parking lots...

    Decision on a knuckle boom crane.

    I finally was able to get to the guy with the bendix 550, so many days of schedule conflicts. I put a 550 on my multifuel for more compressed air, and wow this is heavier than even the other 550! (I mean it does have a Now I'll have to make up a oil return line/bung and weld it to the oil pan...
