I have a Holley regulator on the bench and it's on the list of projects to get done soonish.
The last two days it's been too hot to work on Jeeps or shop so I changed gears and worked in the house instead
Use Adobe Illustrator to whip out this for the '71 with a '79+ Ford T18, Warn OD, and twin stick conversion:
While I was at it, I made this one for the '68 with T-90, Warn OD, single stick:
They are pretty true to the original but with the OD incorporated and a little artistic license here and there.
I sent the files off to the decal printers, so in a week or two we'll see what the final products look like.
I had to get minimum 5 each, so if others on the forum have a matching setup, I'll have a few extra stickers.
It says "O/D" but needs to read...
Can this be achieved in a vehicle aerodynamic as a brick? Just curious? Ron
One could argue that doing 55 MPH in a 60 year-old high-centered short-wheelbase rig with manual steering and 9" single-circuit brakes is ludicrous.
Yes Sir, I agree. When do WE launch? Ron
This is the truth.
You didn't specify which manual steering. And the 9" brakes do work if in good condition and properly adjusted. I distinctly remember having all four wheels locked up in my 3B at about 60 mph. A few deer hairs on the front bumper but all was good. Somewhere east of Craig, CO.
Roy, I need a dyslexic version of your first decal template with reverse to the left and up------ That said, aren't we just giving someone the instructions to hang a rip on the Jeep?
I had to tell the tire store “it’s where 5th would be “.
Scott's a lot braver than me I don't take anything in with the vehicle they go on... something about a$$#@+$ and impact wrenches without torque sticks.
Same here. I bring the wheels/tires to the shop in the back of the truck.
I can look into making you something when I get home from this trip. I'm assuming you want 1,2,3,4 and not L,1,2,3?
Now that I look at my images, I can't unsee "Transfer Case" not being centered correctly and the lower "4wd low" on the single stick one not being well lined up with the circle.
Oh well, the next iterations will be even better.
Yes, 4 speed with reverse up and to the left.
And one 4 speed reverse to the right and up ( old t18 pattern) Thanks
If you are taking orders, I would like one just like the top one, with the newer T18 pattern w/OD & twin stick.
I'd be totally interested in purchasing a sticker with reverse up and to the right (with overdrive and twin stick transfer case) if you make a batch. My t18 came out of a J-truck.
I'll make some more iterations of these when I get time and post them in the member marketplace. My guess is individual decals will end up around $10 with a couple week lead time. Glad to see people like them!
I'm really excited to get this first batch from the printers to see what they look like.
I have an international truck with a 13 speed Road Ranger that needs one! .
(Just kidding), I don’t think it would help me much if I did have the shift pattern posted. As I can never remember where I left it since the last shift anyway.
It must look somthing like this:
Separate names with a comma.
