Re: Turning Brake debate???

Of all of the hundreds of repairs I do blown spider gears is about the least of them. Blown stock 2nd is #1, Blown stock 1st is #2, replace mainshaft bearing is #3, blown spiders only comes into play when there is no superdif and there is too much power for the 2 stock spiders.

Re: Lexus V8 with 091 transmission

A stock 091 will handle about 100 HP IF the bearings are any good. If the bearings are bad the ring and pinion will go quick and then you don't have much left. Adding Weddle gears, superdiff and new bearings kicks it up to 300 HP and I have LOTS of Honda's, Subies and small V8's running to prove it....

The BUG trans can be built for the HP you have. Those motors don't have a lot of torque but sure seem to work well in a light buggy. A 3 or 5 rib BUS trans is stronger but basically the same gearset inside. An 091 6 rib would be more than you need but that's always a good choice. It will take a BUG ...

the best way to adjust the shifter linkage is to put the trans in reverse, facing the nose cone turn shaft to the left and pull out, then put the shifter in reverse, tighten linkages and all the other gears will work, Don donsbusbox
