Funny fact, ever notice how an open differential seems to do that one tires fire REALLY well? That's because once that tire breaks loose, it spins twice as fast as a locked\limited slip (thats not slipping).

Get yourself a portable drill pump and some poly tubing, ice cream bucket (or 5 gallon bucket) and a trash bag. Use one of those cheap pumps and store it in the bucket.


I have one with a very similar body to this one, with 1/2" poly tubing shoved in it.

That's pretty spiffy. I'm gonna have to get me one of those. It works pretty good with the heavy weight of gear oil?

Works rather well, priming takes patience though. After its primed, it pumps down a quart in a matter of around 2 minutes or less.

I'm looking for 4.10's but not at full price.
And I like that little pump idea, I'm gonna have to pick one up for transmission filling.

I plan on rebuilding my 8.8 rear axle and adding some 4:56 gears to the front and back. I currently have a trac-lock unit for the rear. I am also thinking about some chromoly axles for the rear end, especially once I install the supercharger, I don't want to snap an axle.
