Default H42 with vacuum or split t/c???

The new '86 2F came with a 4-speed tranny and split case t/c. I was originally planning on putting a H42 4-speed in a using my orginal vacuum t/c, however, it appears that the front input bearing is shot on the tranny I have. Here's my options:

1. Rebuild the H42 and use the vacuum t/c or
2. Use the 4-speed that came with the 2F and it's split case.

I'm not sure which is better but I'm looking to do things once, and the right way. I believe that there is a different spline count on each of the tranny's, otherwise I'd just switch them out-- I haven't confirmed this yet. Please offer up your opinions on which route I should go. Thanks in advance.

use the split case. it's way better in terms of being stout than the brittle 64 case.

the whole shebang outta the 60

I agree! The tiny bit of lower ratio you get with the J3 case (from a 3 speed setup) is not worth the strength and better quality of the split case!

Just realized that there is no parking brake assembly on the split case. Is there a remedy?

I just swapped axles to 1976. The Man-A-Fre conversion kit listed above is no longer available. It's looking like I'll have to fab something from scratch or do a rear disc conversion. To be honest I'd rather put my $$$ towards something else then rear discs. Any ideas? I was kind of thinking about using the hardware off of 60 axles. Anybody have any experience with this?

Is there anybody out there that knows of someone that can rebuild a H42 or a shop that does decent work? I'm thinking about just getting the H42 working with the vacuum t/c and dealing with the split case later. Summer is coming really quick!!!

Default Parking Brake

Anybody see an issue with using a remote m/c to activate just the rear drums? Here's a link on Mudd, post #16 http://forum.ih8mud.com/40-55-series...er-choice.html. Also found this on a blasphemous site: http://www.cj-8.com/forum/showthread...=parking+brake. Looks like those guys are pretty happy with it and for $50 + a bracket I'm entertaining the thought.

You can install an electric or manual line lock that does essentially the same thing for a lot less work. The problem with a line lock or anything else like this m/c setup: they can bleed off pressure and let the brake release.
