Thanks. I remember that yellow one on Spicer, and wondering about it. IIRC there was a blue one there too. Think it's gone now too but haven't been that way for awhile.

Thought the flex tracks were white nylon with holes for the motor gear, not a spiral cable on a round hard tube. Those look more like XJ, with the tube and mount brackets.

Well, got another Ford goodie of stepping in it. Just saw an add for the new Maverick. A unibody pickup ( think Honda Ridgeline) that looks like it's based off of the Escape (like the Bronco).

I've never looked at either the Jeep or Chevy boxes, but take a look at sector shaft dia and splines, your might need to scare up a different pitman arm. Just a thought.

I was going to put in a J truck spare tire area aux tank. Would have had to angle one corner to do it, and it fell by the way side. At least it will probably be easier to fuel up.

Sounds like you have a quadratrac and a part time transfer case rears. The q-tracs were offset, more than the part time axles.

Trans fluid will float on the drained coolant in little globs. Otherwise, lots of rust and crud in the block. Had a 4.3 "S" Blazer that would drain out brown no matter how much it was flushed.
