Got the new mode fork installed, lot less slop. Got the case together and completely sealed, ran through the ranges, worked great.
Then......as I was taking the case off the bench I noticed the input shaft pushed inward  :deskbang:
Guess I fotgot the retaining clip which is why it wouldn't stay in low. Needless to say, got the clip in, transfer case it in and works great.

On to the 60.....hit a small snag. The spring pad witdth set with the original says kit it for 31.5" axles. Ford only makes that width in the early 70s snow fighter axle. The axle I have is 36", which puts the axle to far to the passenger side. After reading, googling and finally talking with ORD who makes a kit for the 36" axle, I came to the conclusion that I need to widen the front perch mounts.
What I didn't know was that the original set up has the rear perches at 34" wide which is all the frame allows and the front at 31.5" which explains why the springs always looked a little skewed. In talking with the techs at ORD their setup flips that and put the fron at 36" to accommodate the ford axle.
So for sake of time, I ordered their front perch mounts and new shackles. Never knew that the springs could be offset like that front to rear, but since I wheeled it that way for the last 3 or so years, guess I'll be ok lol.

Been  :punchballs: working on this thing to get it ready. The 60 is finally in place, frame is plated, steering is st up, shock hoops are almost done. Looking good and seeing it on wheels over the next few days. I'll post some pics up when I have a chance.
Thanks to Clint for the help on the gears (or should I say doing the work lol) and to Eryc for helping with the tires, my scrawny a** couldn't have done those myself!
