I donít really have a thread anywhere bc I never sit down to go back over it all. I know I should but by the time I finish a task Iím fíing over it and wishing I was hanging with my gf or friends haha. This is my first project this size and itís taken me so much time to research and do everything right. (Except this vibration of course)
Wheels and tires have been rotated and balanace 3 times now.
Driveline is CV behind the t case which is a Ford 271 with dodge input shaft.
I put a 2005 Ford 10.5 in the back when I did the lift and didnít know the level of importance of angles at the time so I just used a pipe to get it close before having the perches welded on.
After getting the shaft rebalanced I then learned the pinion angle needs to be ideally about 1.5* lower than the driveshaft angle so I measured and realized the pinion was actually too high. I had some shims made to bring it down.
Iíll go measure again tonight to confirm where it is now. Iím measuring on the pinion flange and under the driveshaft.
Assuming itís not tranny related Iím guessing either I need to reshim or maybe driving with it not quite right got the shaft wonky and I need to rebalance it again now that I have the angle correct.
Itís just frustrating dealing with this as my valair clutch is starting to slip again due to what I assume is leaky rear main seal or trans input seal. Both things Iíve done many times before and felt confident about.
Ugh I just want this thing to be done so I can get a winch on it and go play in Utah already.
Hereís a pic of the van with my boat that has a 4bt I rebuilt too!
