Reverse the drive output?
Posted 01 July 2005 - 03:53 PM
I have a project in mind that the running gear from an older 4WD suby would be perfect in...if I could make it do what I needed it to. Basically I want to take the entire drive train out of the car and reverse it. That is, the motor is now in the back of the vehicle. But the tranny would have to run in reverse to go forward. Is there a way to (internally) reverse the final outputs of the dual-range trannies?

if there's any way you can power it with a differential, you can flip the differential over.

Then a front and rear LSD should do the trick.

a cam regrind costs 150 bucks right?...well, it would require a completely different cam, and your exhaust valves would be bigger than your intake valves... but how hard would it realy be to make an ea81 run backwards? dual carbs, exhaust stickin straight up.
you can always put in new valve seats so the valves are exqual size... good for low end torque i hear.
i always imagined the front wheels being the furthest forward part, so you could drive up to a brick wall, and push untill the car was almost vertical.
