Re: Garage lights

My experience is that the light output is great, the energy usage is great but the fixture throws off radio frequencies that interfere with the FM radio in our kitchen.

Re: What Overdrive Transmission is this?

I took a look and the torque tube was cut and re-welded about a foot in front of the pinion flange at the rear axle. About how much is the height difference between a AA housing and the A housing?
