  1. Thanks, I pulled of the top and your correct about the gears, I also marked and turned the input and the output outran it , then dropped 1 gear ( direct) and it was 1 to 1 , And yes the TRDX will have a super low 1st gear, it took 12 1/2 turns on input for the outputs 1 turn ! Thank y’all for the advice! I’m going to use it In the LJ
  2. Thanks for the help, I was hoping the only difference in the TRD & TRDX was lower 1st gear, .77 OD sounds great, I’ll pull it out of the parts truck next week! Thank y’all
  3. I have a 1951 LJ , it came new with a TRD-150 Trans , It went out back in the 70s when we still used the truck, we put a 10 speed direct in it , the original trans was probably hauled off for junk , I’m restoring the truck and while I have the cab off I want to put a TRD-150 back in it just for the overdrive, I have a LJ parts truck with a TRDX-150 , I have read these have lower gears for dumps or cement trucks ( this parts truck was used for house moving ) Does anyone know if it is still a overdrive , like the original TRD-150 ? Thanks Dean
  4. Yes all the pipes to the turbo are original , The original owner special ordered this truck ( delivered new to Carolina Garage in Winston Salem NC ) with a turbo ,, it's the only one I have ever seen , I have had it about 20 years ,, The intake side ( I painted it red ) is fiberglass ,, Thanks for your interest , Dean
  5. Gonna have to lengthen those shifters so the little guy can split his gears!

  6. I really like seeing the old photos of the trucks your family has had , we are lucky that we have them , you have some great looking Macks , thanks

      That is a good looking H model , I notice it has those doors under the sleeper . I don't see a lot of them , I got mine off a H that was setting behind a warehouse in South Carolina , the owner told me to take anything I wanted , They were in good shape , I just got lucky , I don't know if it was a factory order item , we had our H for years before I found those . Thanks for the Photo
