I am moving so the project is at a standstill. I haven't done anything driveshaft wise. I am using a 99-04 jeep grand cherokee rear axle and driveshaft. It has disc brakes and fits stock packard wheels. I build a Megashift megasquirt trans controller. There are other controllers that are pre build. For the column shifter I got a universal column linkage kit but haven't installed yet. Hopefully later in the spring I can get the project going again.

Dakota Digital and a few other make a speedo driver. Or you can use a new speedo and just put custom graphics on it so it looks like the original or you can rebuild the original with electronic guts. Or early 4L60e that are hard to find can have a mechanical spedomoeter drive. 700R4's have mechanical speedo drives.

You could use a 4l80e but others with v8 packards successfully used the 4L60e so I thought it was good enough.

Thanks. What i am referring to is the 2 sentences after the picture. There isn't much detail. I guess just hammer the bolts out?

1953 leaf spring removal

I plan to remove the leaf springs. New bushings liners etc. The 3 nuts come off easily but they seem to be studs and not bolts. The manual was no help. Do I just hammer the 3 studs out? I don't want to mess it up. The shocks are unbolted. The axle is supported off the leafs. Any suggestions?
Thanks

Yes will be doing 12 volt but wanted to add AC anyway. Most electric trans controllers need vacuum and spark/tach signal. Load and rpm.

I am using a 4L60e not a 700R4/4L60 so I don't have a throttle cable but will need to T a MAP sensor into a vacuum line. The trans control unit i build will go in the trunk.

Next up is linkage cooler lines and dip stick.
