    Sir, Been lurking and reading for a little while.

    But Did you make your own serpentine pulley's?
    I'm slowly building a 500 for a Jeep 'project' and would like to know.
    Thank you.

    Note the necessary drop-down on the transmission/transfer case mount in order to clear the yoke of the forward driveshaft (AWD).

    FINALLY got the angles "spot on" (picture doesn't show that) as level in all directions. Downward angle of drivetrain is greater than I had wanted at 5 degrees but it allows all of the components to clear - which was no small feat.
    Yes, the rear pinion angle will match it but in the upward direction, thus putting the angles parallel to one another in different planes.

    Bro. Blue68deville,

    I'd like to take you up on the offer of that power brake offset bracket - if it can be had minus the booster. Please let me know the price (including freight and preferred method of payment) along with shipping instructions.
    Thank you!

    Best,

    bro. d

    Let me get it boxed up and see what shipping is. You're in SLC, correct?
    You can have it for shipping cost.

    See there, It always comes back when we help folks. I remember D helping a young college student.
    "Blue" thank you for being so kind to our brother Darius. Another moment that keeps me hopeful for "man kind." The "kindness" you shared should show in all. I believe that is why were are referred to as "Man-Kind"
    Thank you kind Sir.
    PJ

    Thanks indeed to Bro. blues68deville. His kindness is appreciated … as has been the kindness shown by several other frequent posters on this forum. We are that kind of people here!

    PJ, you are correct in that kindness is something we all should subscribe to. Life to too damned short to always be about "me", … and did I mention "ME"? This great nation got to be great by helping one another out. Lord knows few of us, if any, can make it by themselves.

    About that young college student: I never got to pony up with my offer. He was trying to get the specs nailed down with the help of various voices on the forum and "pony up day" never came. However, that offer is still open.

    Best,

    bro. d
