241 doubler progress?
x eleventy billion
Here goes the newb question - what other case do you need if they do this?
I was under the impression it would be a 205 but I could be mistaken. It'd allow you to have 2:1, 3:1, and 6:1 in a lightweight package and without shelling out big bucks for a Lomax or WMS (ATOR) 3:1 set on top of the doubler.
Yall do know there is a kit already for this......
That's why I was asking - I hve a 241 in my burb and a 205 in the parts rig. Dammit - Paging NWF......
Yep, but it leaves half the case hanging off to the side, and it'd force me to find a good drivers side 241 for the sole purpose of cutting up.
I think it would be a better option and here are some reasons.
With the doubler like you are wanting to see (passenger drop 241) you will have shifter clearance problems if you twin stick the 205.
With the other kit you wont have to do any weldind like you would if you used a passenger drop 241.
Also a driver drop 241 is a very easy case to find un-like a passenger drop 241 that was only offered in K5's from 89'-91'.
From what I understand, NWF was developing a "case" to house existing 241 gears. No muss, no fuss, no front halves of t-cases hanging anywhere...a Klune-ish setup really. Driver's drop 241's are very easy to find, but a big wing hanging out there is one more thing in my when it's time for crossmembers, exhaust, etc.
We'll see what they come up with, maybe I'll end up with a traditional doubler after all.
I really dont understand why they kept the half of the case. If they are not even using the chain then why have the rest of the case?
I might have to look into that some more.
The mad rooster 231 kit keeps a big chunk of the case, the DD machine 241 one keeps less of the case but there's still a decent hunk. I just want something that's compact enough to clear whatever shaft/joint I end up with, is (relatively) cheap, and gives me more options than the standard doubler.
After looking at it it just looks like it gets cut off next to the planetary section so you wouldnt have much of a "wing" like you described.
Hmmmm may have to get one
I just found better pics of the DD machine doubler. I stand corrected.
pics? I have just seen the one. Want to send me a link?
Nevermind, my brain isn't working tonight, I was looking at the wrong stuff. Doesn't look as large as the M.R. 231's though. Hopefully someone will post up a picture.
So DD machine is already making this kit? Do they have a website?
I need to see more pics in this thread!
Yes, he is making them. The 32 spline and 31 spline shafts are not ready yet. No, he does not have a website.
Just some info on the DD Machine kit. If you are running a passenger side drop 205 you will need a driver side 241 if you want to shift the 205. You may also have to shift the 205 from the back side if going twin stick. You will need to cut the 241 and have it welded but the block off plates are included in the kit.
