Hey Simp, looking back did you actually have to move the transfer case back?Got the transfer case installed today along with the brackets it moved back a total of 8.5" I am going to shorten the driveshaft going to the front tandem by about an inch or so...
...As measured from the back of the engine block to the front of the flange is 69 inches. I believe the bellhousing overall's thickness is 6.5". The same as the stock housing. All difference is a 1 vs 2 bellhousing. Transmission overall is 36inches. Plus the flange so say 40 inches total. Still leaves about a 21 to 23inch jackshaft give or take...
Yes. 8.5 inches. It was going to make it easier to use a companion flange on the transfer case and spicer style on the transmission side rather than fight with the mechanics style joints.Hey Simp, looking back did you actually have to move the transfer case back?
Gov hasn't changed from before and it was fine. Can charge the system with my big compressor and its fine. Going to run thru a few things tomorrow Gov is also recently new from Bendix so who knows.Nothing going on with the governor? Or with the air dryer you installed?
I didn't remove any valve to install backwards. It bleeds off slowly after an hour or so. It has a few compression fittings that are leaking so I am going to do those tomorrow. I think the second air dryer is causing a conflict since I have it's governor port plugged off. but it doesn't make sense why the other tanks are doing it. I am going to screw with it tomorrow.60 psi is about the secondary cut out pressure. Maybe the valve is installed backwards. When the governor goes bad it usually sticks at 30 psi.
Does it stay at 60 when shut down?

Don't run/drive it with the pinion spinning. Over-running clutch will seize, starter will spin 200,000rpm, and the commutator splays out like a peeled banana in a cartoon. Then the pinion gear breaks off and goes round and round inside the flywheel housing, milling the housing. Remove starter, I'll slam a new nose on it, then add more spacers or have a machine shop make up a thicker one of the difference needed. You can just do a depth measurement from starter mounting flange on housing to ring gear face. I'll try to cross-reference the stated p/n's of the original, but they may have been a unique deal. But thicker spacer and longer mount bolts could handle it, same/same.
