    No I had just found out about your youtube channel a couple of days ago, haven't had a chance to look at more than one yet, but I will! If you get it on level ground maybe use one of the cheapo Harbor Fright angle gauges on the valve cover for me. I am going to run a New Process 205 but don't know how long that would last and was thinking I would run a M35 Tcase if it ever blew up.

    A trimmed lower M35 radiator hose will work just fine, but I elected to go the modern commercial truck route and make a steel tube in order to use short silicone hose sections. Less failure prone.

    Exhaust work. Had two iterations in two days but turned out great. Had to make an adapter/ spacer plate and bend the original mount outboard a bit, but it works great. Looks good too.

    Subsribed, nice fab work. Great repower project.
    I'm not saying let's eliminate all the stupid people. I'm just saying let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem work itself out.

    yea me too, if the ldt takes a dump its totally getting replaced with a 12v. on that subject anybody know what the spicer's torque tolerance is? power is so easy to squeeze out of even a rotary pump 12v i see it possibly being easy to blow up gear boxes, im only maybe a upgrade or two from triple the torque of a ldt on my dodge, doubt the spicer would tolerate that for long with a 15000# truck to move

    If I remember right, the Spicer's rated input torque is right at 400 or 450lb/ ft. It is built way heavier than an NV4500, but it is also in a much heavier truck. I feel like the Waterloo upgrade coupled with the 1308SL input and output bearing upgrades strengthens it beyond the original rating, but I have no idea how much. At some point hardened keys and upgraded bearings don't make a difference because the mainshaft and countershaft flex and spread apart under heavy load, and there is nothing you can do to stop that.

    I'm certain that with the small upgrades I've done I am already exceeding the original rated input torque, but I have found an Eaton 5 speed with an overall length of 24" and a 5th ratio of .66 that is rated for 1,000 lb/ft input. When I break the Spicer, that's what I'll be installing.

    The only things that I don't like about the metal coolant pipe is that there are now 4 hose connections instead of 2 that can leak. And they rust out.

    Only issues if the vehicle isn't maintained. Clearly won't be the case in my care.

    I know that we kept them in stock in the parts room when I worked at Fraley and Schilling Trucking. But we had about 500 power units company wide.
