was the FC a divorced Tcase? Looks like Im seeing a Divorced T case (dana20 or 18?) and the OEM MB tranny. What ratio did you go with in the axles to match the 617 pumper?
It's been awhile since I did it but you can twin stick that T if it is a Dana 20/18 case.... but from your fab skills Im sure you know that.
I have 4.09 gears in the axles (Unimog must be at least 6.00?). I still need a speedo cable (18 feet need to custom order one when the funds come up and still have to rig a tach (no ignition, though a pulse generator
is there just non funtioning).
I went with a 1970 dodge NP205 divorced case (very tough, too strong for the application), it is set up for twin sticks (though no shifter built yet, you have to manually shift it outside). Shifters in the cab forward are an issue!!! I did build a shifter for the automatic to the cab and a great power brake. I want to put a PTO generator on it one day, however a few solar
panals would surve my power needs (in three months I used 3AA batteries, 4 D batteries, and 20lbs propane
for my wife and me, I never even hooked up the house batteries (+18 litres of water per week)).
I just ordered my first bolt in part a electric conversion for the vaccum motor for the windsheild wipers (not many Jeep FC made and most rusted away in farmers fields).
The subframe mounts to the stock pickup box mounts (had a 9.5 foot box from the factory and I slide the axle
back to the end of the frame to fit the in a rear driveshaft). Frame has some flex (the all are cracked behind the cab between the box (the end of the factory frame boxing). The frame I had professionally welded included the front crossmemeber for the OM617 from the 300SD. Like to mabe go standard one day (after grad school).
Thanks everyone for the positive feedback!!!!
