Applying for Pharmacy school starting this fall.

Other information:
L52HD.:.:.:. Tranny is line bored to accommodate larger main shaft bearings. And a completely rebuilt, late model G54 gear set (1985-1988)
is installed into the modified L-series cast iron housing, including the larger G series bearings.

Square front driveshaft.:.:.:. Shimmed with 4 grease fittings, 2 at each end. Works great and balances awesome off road.

Shifter.:.:.:. After installing the solid bushings it sometimes will go out of gear while clutching out, but it shifts and drives fine,
Transmission was professionally built by MarlinCrawler one of the biggest names in the industry. Possible fix, get stock, rubber bushings, but the
shifter may get sloppy on you.









Thanks,
Steve

30,059 I believe is the exact number. Bought it with less than 15k on the rebuild and the odometer read ~20,000.

-I also forgot to mention that this rig is tuned for 87 octane pump gas.

KMAN: Go to your friendly neighborhood bank and pull a loan ;)
