If that really is a 76 they should have kept the FE motor in there.

the rear fitting and the piston were modifed for more flow at idle and to increase the pressure. Oh and yes the wife has a DYSON, man can that thing suck.

Hmm, pretty cool, looks monstrous beefy. With a built big block and all the gearing and super heavy axles/tires do you guys do some frame stiffening as well? I can't imagine the bronco frame holding up to the whole setup for long.

here's some pics of the 5 tons I bought thet are a civilian version with 5.81 gears and air lockers they also have 2 1/4" 23 spline axles where as military 5 tons have 2 1/8" 16 spline shafts




the one on the left is a standard 5 ton shaft and the one with the double spline is from my 5 tons the double spline is for the air locker


here's some pics of the internals






these are scheduled to go in my bronco very directly.

usually it just takes alittle subframe work mine has been holdin up for three years now other than the front shafts in the 2.5 tons haven't found any cracks yet though it did have a few from when it was on 1 tons but that was fixed in the last build. also that is why we are using a 78 frame for his 89 the newer frames are really weak compared to the older frames I have killed a couple of the newer frames in some of my trucks they just don't have the quality that they used to.
