Dropped off my tranny to Jim Loftin yesterday,he is going to disassemble it and find out if it really has Freeway Flyer type parts in it. I need to convert it over for use with the 31" tires for the Baja project. "Felt kind of un natural for a tranny guy to bring a tranny guy his transmission to work on", but I'm smart enough to know when I don't have the proper tooling to perform a quality rebuild. Anyway this guy is first class and defiantly worth the drive to Brooksville for. I will keep you posted of what we find. Cool Cool

Well it seems the previous owner thought that any trans with 3:88 ring and pinion is freeway flyer, but at least this is a good rebuild candidate. Going to use this trans awhile then upgrade to a Pro street with custom gear ratio.

Picked up the trans this weekend, everything looks great! Jim swapped the ring and pinions for me with a 4:12 set to help turn the 31" tires. He also swapped out my week 3rd gear to something a little stronger. We left 4th at .93 for highway use. I highly recommend using Jim he's a great guy to deal with. Smile Smile
