82 Diesel Westy using a later waterboxer trans with better gearing:    
custom 1.14 3rd and .7 4th and diesel bell housing, main shaft and  
starter.  You can't use a tranverse mounted trans in the westy in any  
form that I know of.  I do need to get some pics on my website.  Maybe  
over Christmas break.  Hayden

one party, a leader who claims to have special powers outside the law  
to keep the country "safe", secret prisons where people are locked up  
without charges or trial and government opponents are branded as  
unpatriotic and charged with aiding the enemy."
