Luckily wiring works for me. Heck you are more efficient with the Heavy metal and I can do details and wires all day long. Wish I could afford to move out there but I should have done that 20-30 years back if I was going to. I am creeping up on 70 so I do not see it in the cards.
Still picking at the "bad hair" at the back of the engine. Closer but far from done.
The corrugated tube to the left is the transmission and Tcase harness. The two to the right and center are the rear heater water feeds.
I have ordered a front diff, kind of think I should have ordered the T case gears since I really do not want to pull that case out in the vehicle. Not only is that case huge but where it is over the middle crossmember and pretty snug against the body as well I doubt it will roll out of there.
Front LSD, Decisions, decisions.
I intend to install a worm type LSD in this and since 95% of the mission is road work and near half the year is not pretty weather. Well snow can be pretty.
At this time this has the factory plate type rear diff, that will need the re-stacking to get usable grip...
I am starting to get a handle on the rats nest. The wires now lay in place pretty well and soon it is time to start splicing again.

I posted this in the wanted section but question if it will get seen there. I apologize for the cross post where I know it does not belong.
I am trying to find out if someone might have a set of 3.15 Tcase gears for a Gen 3 here in the states?
I don't know, I will need to look into that. I did find my original introduction posts from '06 when I first posted about the 3.8 in my SR so I expect other threads might be there. I am impressed there seems to be very little loss of data on that site. Just major loss of following.
It was time, It regurgitated it's transmission.
And mated to the engine
I will do some detail work on engine brackets and stuff.
One of the main reasons to pull this was the wire harness was a tangled mess and I could not figure the issue out. Right after mating the transmission and...
My G1 setup.
Rear, Nascar type alloy brake hats machined & drilled to fit the axle flange. Select rotors to suit. 11.75 to stupid large OD and a variety of thicknesses. The rear Calipers I used, I actually do not recall, they are kind of obscure as in Maserati Quatraport of something. They were...
