Haven't torn it apart but it drove when I put the new driveshaft in. There was a terrifying shudder when transitioning from not moving to moving but once it was going it drove fairly normally.

Yeah if it's just the empty bell housing it can just be dumped in the smallest possible cardboard box with maybe a newspaper thrown in for giggles.

Got the tail piece pulled off, everything looks real nice inside. Need something like a 30mm socket to start pulling the stacks. I believe if you get the guts all the way down the dimensions should be about 16x14x14, fairly manageable I believe.

Ok, looking further into the guts I have little desire to pull everything apart. PM me or something, see if we can work a way of sending this ho out.

Haha. I've done this all before when I put the wide block internals inside my narrow block case. If you can get that giant nut off, it isn't so bad.

That being said - I should send you some pics of what I have. It isn't pretty, but its better than what you have!

Yeah I was just planning on hitting that 30mm nut with the impact gun and seeing if it all falls apart.

If I get real lost I can probably convince Ligo to help, he's done a few transmissions in his day.

Cheers mate, torqueflight installed. Transbrake is fun. 15 psi standing still. Time to go fast.

Do it sooner than later. It's fast man. 100% better than a manual, moreso in a RWD application where we don't even have a good manual option. The transbrake is cool AF. Except the switch failed after we installed it so the solenoid was left on for a few days and then burnt out. So I have no transbrake which also means no reverse. Gotta dig into it again and pull the actuator.

Some people never have anything except ideas. Go do it.
Emissions & fuel economy haven't exactly been areas of strength for past rotary power plants, but absolutely no one with a soul has ever cared.

It's so ridiculous. It does the best rolling burnouts ever. And that is with a bed full of junk. Two wheels and tires, a door, a huge gas can, other various parts from the project. I don't know what would happen if it had an empty bed. I would die probably.
