    I’m cringing reading this. I also have an 86 S1954 and need to replace those rubber output lines.

    Just close your eyes and hope while taking them off the block and hope it doesn't give. I think water got in there froze and caused it to crack from inside out. The previous owner mechanics didn't seem to do much upkeep on the truck and or know much when fixing anything. When they snapped the first transmission they drove it till it was toasted and when the rear axle splitter stop splitting they just pulled the plug on it and set it to side and drove on. Few of the things I have fixed of their lack thereof whatever they didn't do or attempted to do.

    This is largely my son’s project, but it’s in my custody. It’s primarily a farm truck and has been hacked on a lot by POs. The splitter was hot wired in high when I got it. Had to replace the motor. I was planning on cutting those nuts with a dermal before trying to remove them.

    Those aren't too bad just soak them with PB blaster or of the likes for next 24 hours, hold on to the nut with 7/16th size with pair of vise grips and use a 5/8 wrench for other side and it will come off.The block itself will take a 5/8 wrench to hold onto. Had to replace the motor in mine too just left the rest attached and cleaned up the terminals.

    The place I called for the part I posted on here is a dud, called 2 days ago for the part and they said soon as they get to it they will call me, the never did. I had to call them and they were reluctant to check for the part, I bet if I asked for a engine they would be all over it like stink on sh!t. I gave them the part number, the lot number of the truck I seen it on in the pictures and they still refused to, so if they are on here this is for you wasting my time ,,!,,.
    Decided to go with DMillers, Birken Vogt and crane operators plan to put aftermarket on, I ordered the one from crane operators posted link and will take it into town Wednesday to get the adapters. Thanks to everyone that could help, helped!

    With a little bit of this...
    Tired of driving around using RPM for speedometer plus I need it for my CDL test, poor testing instructor going to jump in my truck and be awe struck with wtf look that will stick throughout the test.
    Maybe I should mount some hidden cameras.
