Billy does your holster keep the "shifter" in place while inverted? Don't act like you're not sure either!

the wires that come out of the wiper motor go to terminals on a board right on the wiper motor frame assembly. There should be a male spade terminal on that for the hot wire to plug onto. I think I can get a picture if needed but there should only be

It's my understanding that most engines were either run after assembly, or "motored" over by a big electric motor for a certain time without actually being fired up, to break in the parts and check for proper oil pressure, etc. A lot of co

wanting a 2-speed is plenty of reason to switch! I think it also depends on year. Looking again, the 55.2-59 shows 2 ratios, 5.83/7.95 and 6.40/8.72 earlier probably uses a different rear.

The fan belt rides on the water pump, on the harmonic balancer, and on the generator? They are all attached to the block (and move with the block). I'd guess a bad bearing in the water pump or in the generator (and, more unlikely, a loose/wobbly h

What gen. or alt. do you have. There is not a lot of contact area on the 6 cyl. engine for the gen. If it is a high amp gen. or alt. it will put a lot of stain on the belt & it will slip. Check the charging voltage. It should not be over 7.5 on a

The 2-speeds were 6.10 and 8.10 from what I am reading. However I guess that depends on which axle you have. There were several different manufacturers. I'm just having a hard time nailing down model numbers and application charts. I don't have a g

unless you are hauling a lot of weight or want the lower rear ratio for pulling power, I would stay with the 6.17 gears. The 2-speed is 6.40 and 8.75. That is nice for pulling a lot of weight because you have more gears but, it has a slower top end.
