I'd like to say it's tempting...but no. Sorry!

Yeah... That would be quite an adapter to make them both fit!

Ok...big day today. My transmission builder called, he got in my LS bellhousing 4L80E. He'll have it done in a few weeks. Told him to take his time if it would get me a better price. Then, I called a buddy at a junkyard- we got talking about Jeeps, and when he found out Al Unser Jr. used to own my J20, he was hooked. He used to hang out with Al Jr. when they were younger. He's an Indy car aficionado, I asked him if he wanted to contact Al Jr. to see if he could sign my glove box door. We'll see where that goes. After some more cool conversation he sold me a 32 spline 241c for $200 with no core charge. It should show up Thursday. Looks like this build will start progressing again!

Picked up the 241C today. Looks great and feels nice and tight. I threw some paint on it and then remembered I have to tear it down to install the SYE. Keen eyes will see the adapter is wrong, that's one for a 241C/4L60E. Still have to get a 4L80E adapter.

Well, since Photobucket appears to have committed internet suicide, I'm looking for a good place to host my pics. Any suggestions? Stable and mainstream...

So...I can't edit the posts on page 1. Too old, I guess. Maybe I should kill this thread and start a new one? Damn Photobucket...

I actually worked on the J-20 today! Started on the firewall. Welded up the plethora of small holes.

I decided I didn't like the swiss-cheese nature of the passenger side, especially since the Vintage Air unit is going to hang there. So, I got a piece of 16GA bent up, and I trimmed it to fit. The bend on the edge is for stiffness, and to copy the stiffener panel on the other side. I still have to bend the flap hanging down to match the lower firewall, but so far so good. The stiffener panel will be attached with body panel adhesive. The two bolts are where the A/C unit will hang.

Progress feels good.

Got the lower edge contoured to fit with my home made bender. Now for the panel adhesive.





I still have to weld in the little notch in the lip too.
