Well Jerry came through while I was gone and there was a new speedo head here when I got back. It was not an exact fit, but was close. I got it working and installed. I haven't put the dash back together yet, decided to put in a new speedo cable while I got it apart. Jerry is getting that sent out in the morning.

So I got around to it today and got the speedo all buttoned up, weather was iffy but by the afternoon it was fine. While I was under the truck I kept looking at the trans mount and the carrier bearing. I have some sloppyness in the drivetrain that I thought might of been the rear end. I have had a mount and carrier bearing for some time, so I decided I would drop the driveline and also put the trans mount in. I got the trans mount installed, the old one was cracked about half way around. The carrier bearing was torn about 40% of the way around. I have the driveline in pieces and have to get the bearing off tomorrow. Hopefully I will have it on the road in the next day or two. But the rear end is looking ok for now. I put an LSD in it a few years back and all that seems fine.

yeah I am real bad at pictures. I ended up taking the driveline to my buddy that has the better setup and got the carrier bearing replaced. We were checking the u joints and found one right at the trans that was a bit stiff. I figured that was easy enough to get locally, there are 4 parts houses here and they all said we can have it tomorrow. So that was as far as that went yesterday. After I get moving this morning I will zip on down there and pick up the u joint and get this thing going again. I am getting ready to make a trip down to New Mexico soon and want this crap out of the way. And no I am not taking a Zoo. It is not a pleasure trip.
