    Hi everyone, just wanted to share a little life naustalgia from last week-end. We have each year a 3 day off road week-end always during labor's day week-end that we use to call " Animal Party ".

    My amc 360 engine fail on me on the last day (sunday) last year.

    The picture above has been taken at the exact position where my amc 360 stopped and never started again.

    I had chance to stop just before an exit to the trail, what you can see on left side. I'm happy this year to be able to continu on the right side and finish the trail with my fellow 4x4 club member.

    I must give a thumb up to Hemr the overdrive guy. I did receive my teralow kit with the intermediate gear already machined for the intermediate shaft kit. Since i live in canada it took me more time to find a way to pay him than to receive the stuff. Paid him on last tuesday, receive them today.

    Little progress on the dana 20 rebuilt. Clean up the front output retainer, and the rear output assembly along with new bearing race.

    After some rust cleaning time for a fresh coat of paint :)

    Start re-assemble yesterday. Always been struggling about the ball and spring that hold the shift rail in gear. After 45 minutes trying to get those in i got a flash idea. I had other shift rail from transfert case i tore appart. Took you, cut it to about 3.5" made a ramp. Work like a charm, way easier to put shift rail in.

    So time to start the transfert case swap. So i remove my stock unit.
    261307016_633514801331283_9100044662524231490_n.jpg


    Advance adapter gave me a big headaches with that problem. With their intermediate shaft kit they provide a castle nut. I wasnt able to get the cutter pin inside the castle since the hole for it is higher than the nut itself. Had to made some shim with washer i had at my job (need some grinding for transfert case mounting clearance.

    257742477_346336637302200_5171209301405256322_n.jpg

    I have the same intermidiate kit on my stock unit. When looking at both transfert case on my work table i finaly found out why i wasnt able to put the cotter pin inside the nut

    261408361_1049608925609214_8026955427139239500_n.jpg

    Dont know why, but advance adatper have change their castle nut as you can see on this picture.

    260417198_3127392280872523_1381679737318226163_n.jpg

    So i just interchange nut and if work as it suppose to be.

    260816182_613087749807008_5311357273121012586_n.jpg


    So now i just need to clean out the mounting surface on the transmission adapter and i'll be ready to put the new unit in place.
