I didn't realize you tore it apart. How long have you been down? The dual cases should be nice.

BTW- you can come clean my garage!

:eek: That thing looks awesome, I don't think my rear driveshaft would be too happy with the angle I'd have if I used dual T-cases, but I wish I could. Sounds like you built that 5.0 to tear some stuff up. You should be able to sell those narrowed axles to someone for enought to do your new ones.

The only thing I can think of to help lengthen it would be to use a output shapt and adapter from a NP208 between the tranny and t-case which is about 4 inches shorter than the one you have but all that linkage would have to be redone. The mod needed to make the adapter work on a 205 is a small notch. The only other thing is to get the radiator, electric fans and engine as far forward as possible. Good luck though, can't wait to see it together and in action.

my doubler is way longer then that and my drive line is tinny but i also fliped the rear springs around so it pushed the rear axle back 5 inches. Make sure to put a limiting strap in the center of your axle to keep it droping to much and blowing apart your rear yoke! it wont limit any of your flex to.

I think I had alot less work jut putting the daul fans in front of my radiator without modifying the core support at all. Here is the best picture I have showing the fans in front of the radiator. I can't even remember what brand or size they are but they were on clearance at the summit retail store and 2 of them fit literally perfect in the hole in the radiator support and then my aluminum radiator clears the water pump by about 1.5". Not saying this to knock how you did it or try to convince you to do it my way, just putting the info out for others.

On the taurus fan, I found a similar fan that has a lower profile shroud than the taurus fan. The motors appear to be interchangable. I still have to swap out the motors, but the shroud got me the extra room I needed to clear the water pump. Actually, the fan works fine....even blew a 30amp fuse :rolleyes: Which BTW- I recommend using a circuit breaker instead.

In the picture you can see how the shroud is thick on top, and tapers down to the bottom.

i cut almost all the shroud off the fan and am gonna make a new one out of aluminum

i'm gonna run an 80amp relay (thats what they pull on start up) and a 30 amp circuit breaker acording to arcives on pirate they pull 33amps continuos and i don't feel like blowin stuff or catchin on fire also going to wire in a on/off temp sensor for the fan

mine is an aluminum radiator that I got from Summit, it is one of their summit brand universal ones. I just measured what I could fit and got the closest thing. I have a tranny and an oil cooler in front of my radiator, the fans are pretty low profile. When i get home I have the boxes and reciept for the fan and the radiator and will take more pics of how they are both mounted and how they fit. Mine have a thermastat and also have an overide switch that I put on the dash to be able to turn it on manually if the temp climbs and they don't turn on by themselves.
