      Hey, you asked me to PM you about connecting rods. I created a 'conversation' with you... is that what you do on this forum to PM someone?

        Sadlt all my meters have broken. I will not be able to rent any meters till I have them fixed. When that happens I will post so everyone knows I'm renting once again.Very sorry this has happened too. I will be sending out 4 meters for repairs very soon so I will have at least one meter available. Gary

      Hello,
      I saw a post of yours from a while ago about a broken flex plate shim . Like you said, I can't find one anywhere . My truck has been off the road for a month and its my only vehicle! Is there any chance you still have one laying around.
      Thanks in advance

      Hello do you still do the dynamic timing equipment rental service? I recently replaced my pump and would like to time it correctly, thanks.

      Thanks for the question. The gear vendors splits each gear except 1st gear from the start. Not once your rolling about 20 mph it makes enough hydraulic pressure to shift up between 1 and 2nd gear. So you start out in 1st gear then shift up to 1st over. Then shift to 2nd and then 2nd over. The factory considers this an over under drive aux trans. What the black brain box does is keeps the unit from shifting when backing up or shifting at the wrong times. You can run without this brain but it can cause the trans to ruin itself too. They really are not that expensive and show up on ebay in the Gear Vendors search all the time. Does this unit have the large or small speedo housing in the end of it. The large one is the "P" model and a much tougher trans but they all are great units. They are no longer made in England. The Gear Vendors company bought the factory a few years ago and now is still located in the San Diego area.

      Hello there! I've been reading your signature on the e4od/gearvendors combo and have a question for you. Is the GV "brain" only concerned with being an overdrive? Or would you also have an under drive gear selection as well? I found a GV a while ago in a junkyard with a 2wd c6 adapter, but the box was trashed and wires cut.

      I'm not sure if this gets to you because I never use this message board. I do not recall what number my pump is but I think yours will have too much pressure. We run about 4 to 6 lbs normal pressure and about 30 gph. Hope this helps. you might want to post this same question on the 69. 7.3 forum. Lots of great help there. Might be someone that has the pump numbers for you too.

      which facet lift pump are you running? I have model 40290 which puts out 12-15 psi and 50 gph. will that mess with my timing enough to be a problem? if so should I retime it or get a lower pressure pump?

      thanks in advance

      Hi there my name is Austin Murphy. This morning I made the purchase of my very own baby moose pump from Mel. I was wondering if you were still renting meters? As I would like to time it correctly. If you don't no worries. Thank you for your time

      I have a 89 ford f250 7.3 with 112500 and zf5 non turbo
      The throwout bearing is going and the clutch according to several people and a reputable mechanic is weird but OK.
      If I am going to have to get in to the clutch I want to do it all right.
      What kind of clutch kit should I get ?
      And what about syncros would they be a good idea to do at the same time.
      Thank you in advance
