While a mig can be easier to learn on, I would give it up way before I would get rid of my AC/DC Lincoln stick welder. A stick machine is just way more versatile, but it does take a little more time...

Hello,
Just did a gear change on a Ford 8.8 to 4.88 gears. As I've not done this before I'd like a little feedback.
Backlash is right at .010, and I've installed a crush sleeve...

Do you have a lift installed? What brand?
If it is stock, I don't think the track bar removal will help.

What made you want to switch?
Perhaps, the reason you were switching was an issue that was unnavoidable and is making your transmission shift poorly no matter what fluid you used.
I honestly doubt...

Penzoil Synchromesh works GREAT in my AX5. It certainly works much better than the GL-5 75w90 that the book calls for.
As for viscosity, you should call Penzoil for that information as it is...

You can get them on if you jack up the right side of the axle to arc over the mount. The problem is that you'll end up with a side load against your shackles. RC is no help as they think this is...

Yes, it is pretty amazing that there are still folks that guide others to GL-5 because that is what the owner's manual states.
There is a huge difference between the two and Synchromesh can...

You don't need the blue spring. I think it is for the self adjusters on a TJ, but regardless, it isn't used on your YJ.

Not sure about the rest, but the reason NASCAR uses carbs is because it is in the rules. They are switching to fuel injection next season.
