Doug Nash built them but it's not a DNE trans.
It's a Super T-10 with a three-speed auto on the back.
A DNE 4+1 is the Richmond 5-speed and...
Fargo trucks were Dodge "pilot house" trucks as I recall.
I had the same trouble until a guy I work with taught me to file the cut end of the tube exactly square.

Ok, enlighten me with your boundless knowledge of this person.
You seem to be taking offence at my observation, have I stated anywhere that being...
Yup, they "cleaned up" the orignal Led Zeppelin recordings so much that you can hear the drum pedal squeaking on "since I've been lovin you".
It was General Motors of Canada.
My '48 Chevy doesn't say "Chevrolet" on the cowl tag, it says GM of Canada.

I didn't say he had to look like a dirt bag, or even be dirty.
Clearly, you don't work with your hands either or you would know what I'm talking...

He's a big picture guy. He's the one writing the...
Don't get the 'murricans on here wound up.
Next thing you know, someone will tell them we set fire to the white house.

I'm a big fan of the Canadian Pontiacs.
Got a Pathfinder and a Laurentian at the moment.

Most 4-bangers tend to be internally balanced since there is less...
You should've waited for the 2013 Shelby Mustang. More hp for probably the same $$$
