Alright, so I'm the standard IH owner (read "cheap" and "moderately resourceful") and I have been looking for a divorced or remote mount Gear Vendors OD unit for my '61 C100 Travelette for several years now with no luck. I have found several, but they are all way out of my price range. I finally found one out of an older GM RV with a Turbo-400 transmission at a pretty decent price. I had been told that Gear Vendors didn't make an adaptor for the T-98 trans (true) but that they would sell me "everything that I needed" for a divorced mount kit (also true) for like $600-700 (not so true.) I called them the other day and the adaptor alone is $850. They are wanting $1200-1400 plus a $250 core charge for my TH400 tailshaft for everything that I need. So with that in mind: 1. Does anyone have any ideas where I could find a good divorced adaptor at a better price? I have not called the gentleman at maximum-overdrive to see if he would sell me just the adaptor. That is on my list of things to do today. 2. Do you think that I could have a driveshaft shop build me a yoke that would slide into the GV input to turn the TH400 adaptor into a divorced mount setup? I'm already going to have a yoke built for the rear shaft to replace the carrier bearing setup. I'm thinking that if you put a mounting plate on the front of the adaptor with a bearing in it and then slid the yoke through there and mated it with the splines on the GV it would basically do the same thing as their adaptor. (See picture.) I may have drawn it backwards. To be honest, I'm not super familiar with the unit. Mine is still attached to the OD and I'm doing it from memory because I forgot to bring my camera to work today! 3. I understand that the easiest/fastest "right" way to do it is to just pony up at gear vendors and be done. And if I do, I'm still well ahead of what GV wants for the whole ball of wax. 4. GV wants $250 for their "universal mounting kit." I own a drill, a vise, and a sawzall. I would think that for less than $50 I could go to the hardware store and get some strap steel and cut that out of the mix, getting me down to $1000 or so, which sounds like a good deal to me and gets me well below the maximum-overdrive price. 5. I have the BD240 I-6 with a BW T-98 4 speed. I don't want to change the drivetrain. I'm trying to keep the truck as close to stock as possible while still being able to drive it daily. I've looked into swapping another 5 spd manual but nothing I've found so far has a long enough input shaft. By the time that I buy a tranny, lengthen the input shaft, and machine an adaptor for the I-6, the cost becomes prohibative. ($2K range) If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. Thanks!
