Looks like Im gonna have to run 1 inch spacers for these wheels. but , rear shocks, front brake pads and new front brake hoses came in the mail today , good thing for the pads, the inside one on the drivers side was just about done.

Also dropped the pan on the trans 1 to check it and 2 so I can adjust the governor and get the right drive gear to correct the speedo. also picked up a nice trans and oil pressure gauge set from Hazzard freight. I want to be able know know exactly how we are doing.

got the governor gear changed out and managed to hold myself back from making any mods to the gov assy . replaced the pan and filled it back up and pressures where better than the ones listed in the ATSG handbook got the TV cable where It needs to be and now i just gotta change the oil and the rear shocks, mount the rear swaybar and take it for a drive.
