This is excellent! If you need help setting up/preparing/repairing or whatever beforehand, I would be glad to help. I'd certainly have to ask first, but my mom's place would be a great meeting spot. Depends on how the "sale" is going by then, mainly.

Congrats on the future child. I'd love to be apart of the June meet, but my sister is coming in the week before and I will have to take off some work then.

@Captspillane...Many thanks for sharing your expertise and your hospitality on this forum. And congrats on the expected arrival of your child. I'm a bit too far away to attend the Solstic Meet this time as my vacation time is already spoken for.  :eagle:

Congrats on the upcoming introduction of the new Eaglet!  Enjoy every minute with her, they grow up fast.

Hopefully you'll get some Nesters to turn out for the Solstice Meet, sounds like a good time.

 I haven't posted here since photobucket changed their layout. It was aggravating to figure out how to manipulate their new website. I think I have it all figured out now tho, so it's time to start catching this thread up to date.

That's what an AMC 401 looks like in the back of an XJ. This was me picking up the first 401 for my red SX4. The engine was 5 hours away, so I opted to take the XJ instead of the other trucks available. The engine hoist came and left with me too, so it was a tight fit inside. I've since gotten a nicer 401, so this is set aside for my J10 now.

The other photo is my white SX4 earning it's keep with lumber bound for Civil Air Patrol's Hawk Mountain Ranger School.

For my Green Eagle wagon I looked up the formula to calculate exactly what speedometer gear I needed. I selected a thirty tooth gear and it is not a noticeable difference from the ideal number.

G=(20168xDxC)/(KxT)=(20168x3.07x13)/(1000x27.11)=29.69 desired teeth on speedometer gear

D=Differential Gear Ratio=3.07
C=Number of teeth inside the Transfer Case=13 for all the new process cases
K=1000=The Revolutions per Mile of the Speedometer, which is always 1000 for Eagles
T=Tire diameter in decimal inches

T=28.88 for 235/75R15 tires
T=27.70 for 215/75R15 tires
T=27.11 for 205/75R15 tires
T=26.52 for 195/75R15 tires (stock size for most AMC Eagles)
