Re: High speed rear axle

Make SURE you do not use any oil with EP additives when you fill the rear end otherwise you will destroy your bronze worm in just a few miles, (I know, I did it...........).

Re: warford 2023 counter gear cluster

No, new Warfords did not "make noise". The reason that most Warford transmissions are noisy is because the gear faces wear over the years. Replacing the bearings will usually quiet them some but to get the transmission back to original quiet sound you have to hard-chrome the gear faces back to spec....

Re: how do you shift a warford while moving?

With mine I reach shifting speed (40-45), throw out the clutch then shift immediately into OD. The trans oil temp changes after warms up so shifting pattern/timing will change. One truck I had required immediate double-clutching (no pause) then shove it into od.

Re: gas mileage AA

Depends what State you're in. Here in Taxifornia they modify the gas by using a high percentage of alcohol and oxigenates in order to lessen your mpg. The rats in Sacramento say it's for cleaner air but everyone knows it's because if your car gets fewer miles per gallon you'll have to buy more gas. ...

Re: Flatbed Board Finish Options.

Oak is the wrong wood to use on a bed, unless it is sealed completely it will cup and warp in the weather over time. Many people seem to use oak for exposed use but it was never used for that purpose. Yellow pine, maple would be the better material.

Re: Speedo cable

Rather than pull out the old casing, I ran a bailing wire from the instrument end to the end of the casing; 81" exactly. So it looks like the overall length of the "shaft" should be 82.2, as Bob stated. Doesn't look like any supplier has the shaft in the proper original length.

Re: Speedo cable

Yes, of course that would be the thing to do but a real hassle pulling the casing out of the truck and measuring it. I just thought someone would have the information I need without having to do that.
