    Looking at the model again - it would be really good to know exactly where that front crossmember is. You want both your steering box and the track bar to be located as close to that crossmember as possible. There's an awful lot of stress put into the frame by the steering box and the track...

    Pitman arm - points forward or backward? I'll want to know exactly what direction it points with respect to the input shaft at the middle of its range of motion to get the frame end of the track bar located right where it needs to be. A picture would help too.

    Here's your yard art... Now if you can get the frame model from the guy in Ventura building the old scout, I can model up the arms and mock it up on the 'puter. Some axle models would be handy as well.

    Only wisdom I have is based off of a guy running a Ford 4R70W with a later EEC-IV computer. He made it work but it wasn't until after he had a few shifting issues that he had to work out.

    Can you custom tune it? Preachin to the choir on the Pro Jection. That thing was junk. I recall having to reach back and dial the knobs until it would pull hard enough to run 4th up 50 to Tahoe. I don't think I ever got full throttle to run right. I inadvertently discovered a wire in the...

    I had a Holley Pro Jection on the Bronco for a short while. All I can say is that it ran...until the injectors decided to stick in the full-on position. Filled the intake manifold with fuel and...well...flames! Been a little sour on throttle bodies ever since. I'm expecting your factory...

    Funny. In the old days a carb would have been considered simple and bulletproof!
