I have the patterns made, I still need to get them drawn up in a format to send them to the waterjet guy. 1100kaw, I have a 8.5 s10 rear, disk brakes, aluminum calipers, 3.42 gov lock. all the e-brake stuff is removed, shoot me a pm if your interested. I also have a 28 spline 8.8, disk brakes, 4.10 limited slip, arp diff cap studs, a t&a cover girdle, that is 1 or 2 inches wider than the s10.

I'm interested also.

And I've also been drafting in AutoCad for 29 years.
I'm a veteran Mechanical Designer, and will consider drawing these up if you can't get anyone close by.

If you are interested, you can trace them and provide the hole sizes, and I can make fabrication drawings from the tracings.
Also, assembly drawings showing the finished mount(s) as one piece, may be a possibility.

If you are interested, PM me.

OK.... I'll keep an eye on this thread.

I may have to go this route if I decide to change my vintage Ford Granada 8 inch to a Ranger 8.8, where there is a much better supply of low cost used posi units, gears, etc....

Keep up the good work, and don't forget to post motorhead porn. :th:
