    Litterally....

    I have not even gon to bed yet, and I have been up all morning going to every damn junk yard in the area...from Meriden all the way to New Haven, and then up to Branford.



    Looking for a damn COMPANION FLANGE!!!! :angry:

    I need a 1980-1985 Nissan Maxima Campanion flaange so I can just bolt up the axels I also need...well..I can get axels at Autobones, use them over the week-end and return them...or if I sell something big here...then I can keep them....

    But no damn MAXIMA'S!!!!!

    Where the hell have they disappeared to???

    I got the Diff I've been working one put together, measured, and ready to slap a cover on it and fill the fluids...and then install it....but NOOOOOOO!!!!!....I can't even take the old diff out until I get this damn Companion Flange peice found and in my hands...

    And time is ticking away... :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry:




    Arhhhhhggggg...The pain from thinking about it is driving me nuts. :angry:



    On a side note...I found a shit load of honda engines and other items of interest...

    One JY in New Haven has some sweet UGLY Bulging 13" Enkies...but the Dicksmack want $150 for them :angry:

    Plus I found a trany for the Jeep for $200... :ph34r:

    Alright kids, let's draw a diagram.

    []--=O=--[] < rear-end.


    [] : wheel
    -- : axle
    = : companion flange
    O : differential

    The axles bolt to the companion flanges, which are turned by the differential.

    looks like I'll be a peg-leg for one more event :(

    no more time to do the swap...even if I find the parts or get the flanges :(

    I just hope the tires and all the other little things I've done to the car to tweek it works :unsure:

    I might call tomoorrow and see if they have them...it too late now though...the jet aircraft fuel tank sealer is going on in the morning when I get home...and that will get me to the event, and I can rock it this way untill I snap a u-joint...and I kinda ran out of money to even buy the axle's...even if I did find them...

    But lets just say this... :)

    If I bought all of the parts new...the rear end alone tops close to $2K's :ph34r:

    LSD= $999 in some places,
    4.11:1 R&P = $700
    diff casing = $175
    and all the extra things needed....buku bucks :ph34r:
