    yeah from the transmission 23 spline to the torque tube 6 spline
    but that 23 spline Yoke does not exist anywhere
    not just about number of spline but also diameter does not match what I've could find on the market.

    Thread's like this are why I spend too much time on the HAMB! Grouse bit of kit!

    Looks like you're having fun there 8Ball, nice chop and motor build. Transmission looks like a real pain in the ass and a bloody expensive way of doing it, I wish you luck with it.
    Will we see it at the Hotrod Hayride next year?

    Great build, congrats.
    That French Tudor body has a unique look to it, and I like it.

    Start with an input shaft for the transfer case that is suposed to bolt to the transmission. Cut off the spline and weld it in your U joint.
    Good luck, wonderful photos for a great build. We thank you for sharing.

    Awesome build!!! Can't wait to see how this turns out!

    You will NOT be sorry you spent that money!! Dan's adapter is awesome and made really well! I know for a fact that he takes great care when putting these kits together. You have made a great choice!

    Yes Ole Don
    it's exactly what we intend to do.
    problem is, we don't even find this part that goes from the transmission output shaft to the transfert case input shaft !!!
    I know it sound crazy !

    sorry but for 1000$ it's a "no go"
    if it was the same prize as for the S10 Trans ok I can imagine to pay 500$
    I also have to consider shipping cost to France and customs cost.
    It may cost me 2000$ at my door !!!!

    ah ah ah
    you should have read what frenchies told me about chopping a so great condition car.
    they were just jealous :D
    most of them started their project on all rusted junk cars.
    I had the chance to find it like this and I feel no shame :cool:

    Customs is no worse in Poland

    You could use an M45 Volvo It will take a flattie without problems as to parts ..... ask the tricycle guys to shove stuff in a box from Bonnevile

    Again a truck Diff nose will let you run a drive shaft.....

    I don't really like T-5's

    What trans do the French trucks use.

    Oh! Gotcha'... Yeah, shipping would be killer!

    So what is the adapter in the picture?

    EDIT: That IS Dan's, isn't it? Sorry! Was confused.

    So will you be making something else orrrr?? You might want to check with him again. I think he's gearing up for "production" now.

    Man that was a nice car to start with!

    Note that since you're in France, there's not nearly the people screaming to leave it as is. Kinda funny.

    Looks bitchin!
