Move the Tranmission?
Posted 04 July 2005 - 01:34 PM
Has anyone ever moved the mounting point for the engine and transmission back any? Like 2 inches or so?
This is just a crazy question. I know that it would mess with the axle angles and all kinds of other crap, but just wondering?

i had my tranny elevated about 1 inch, and it ate through front axles like crazy. i now run my tranny lowered about one inch, to keep the axle angles down.
rwd, it would work fine, cept the shifter would be where your e brake is...

Also about the radiator... Call me crazy but what my "PLANS as of right now," I want to mount the radiator in the bed of the brat along with a fuel cell and my battery. The only thing I am concerned about is if the XT6 water pump will have enough power to pump coolant back and into the engine without an additional pump.

Have the same idea here for my radiator, mount it in the bed, didn't even think of the waterpump though, hmmmmmmm.

About the Minimum lift being 6", That might be what I want to go with. I am still contenplating on going with the 4" or 6".....

I was talking to a guy out on the trails over the 4th weekend. He had a mazda pickup body on a toyota frame and a chevy engine. He said with the engine he ran out of room upfront and moved the radiator to the back. I asked how he ran the coolant back there safely. He said hydrolic hose and copper pipe couplers; looked back there and it was a nice setup.
I've personaly used the copper couplers for household plumbing to make a custom fit radiator hose due to the 3" BYB liftkit. It works great; just feed the hose over the coupler and clamp it down tight. The hydrolic hose is a good idea becuase its high pressure and high temp rated. You can also get bulk amounts of radiator hose from truck repair shops (by truck I mean semis and dumptrucks) They will have silicone and normal stuff on a spool sold by the foot.

Thanks MorganMDo you have any pics of your radiator setup? Thanks bud!
I didnt take any pics of it relocated. Only had it there for about week and I decided I didnt like it. Now it's back up front.
