od is proportional to the low gear. one day, they will make a .79od with a 2.7 underdrive.....

Lee - just wondering where you found that as I would love to do one of those someday, are they more common down south than up north? What kind of $$ you talking, 0-$5000, $5000-$10,000 or up for a restoreable one? I know Paul in NY has one too. They were ahead of their time, a 1940's SUV. Thanks.

Ya. "Readers want to know" how you get these fantastic really old donors. We don't have any of these up north. I'm so jealous. Not fare!

I have a WC53 and it is up north

But I sure as heck do not have a 4bt . Once you cross the boarder the darn things seem to dissapear.
WC53 ,Nv4500 ,2 transfer cases ARBs and a few old school odds and sods.
Got a crawl ratio of 155 to 1 or some such thing.

But no 4bt .

Lee those pics look great, I can't believe how clean that WC-53 is! You're right looks like it almost belongs there especially with the high mount turbo / manifold.. Lee also, where did you get that remote filter housing there, I like :)
