Old school, as in 3.0L Japanese wheezer engine? That's not even old-school. You can get a carb intake for the LS, too. It comes with a complimentary black pocket comb.

Well, a bit of good news.
We apparently have a vacuum actuator on the front axle (and it works!) so we don't have to put locking hubs on it.

Researching a Remco disconnect now for the rear.

Remcos work well,i used them for years.
I upgrade the cable to a heavy duty PTO cable,and i always shift them into gear with the tranny in reverse.

I also put a liberal amount of lithium grease on the cable before putting into the sheath.
