Do yourself a favor and grab a Ram clutch alignment tool!

The one that came with the clutch was trash and I couldn't get the input shaft of the transmission in properly because of it.

Being twin disc makes it more of a challenge.

Here's the 26-spline one I used (are you 10-spline?)

Thanks for the tip smile

My tr3650 was up graded with a 26 spline imput shaft smile

I have a universal clutch alignment tool that I used for all of the other manual swap I have done, I will see if it works smile

some more up dates smile

Got the diff out. Gonna ditch the ford's track lok in favor of an Eaton detroit truetrac .
I am keeping the 4.10 gears in there for now .




Diff is dusty so I an going to clean it and probably repaint it again to it,s former glory


Control arms seen better days too !
lots of overspray for the previous 2 paint job.
Bushings on the upper arms need to be replace as they are shot but it's a no brainer everything will be replaced and arms stripped from over spray.


when they were new against the stock control arms



I dropped the fuel tank to be able to paint the frame and I need to change the pump from a 255 to 340 lph .





By the time I receive these parts it will have enough time to clean the floor and repaint the whole thing .

I wont lie it's been on the back burner for a long time . Family time being a priority and dealing with other issues set me a few month back on this project .


Diff is a complete rebuilt with moser axles , eaton true track and diff 4,10 gears

floor pan and frame has been stripped from the flaky p51 jobI did few years ago and re coated in black .

new mcleod twin disc clutch and pressure plate plus new flywheel with ARP hardware .

That alone costed me a few grand righ away except the axle that were generously donated by a good friend of mine MR John smile cnginterceptor

lots of details and parts to buy along the way as everything is pretty much being replaced along the way so it,s a costly and lenghty process but Iwill get there !
