the nice thing about the T56 is that except for the gearing, and there are only two sets, they all have the same torque capacity.

there are a LOT more than one torque capacity from 330 lb/ft to 550 if you get the right tranny so you have to be more careful than just getting A T 56

Got a website or phone number? Thanks for the tip. I haven't been able to find anything on Mcleod's Website. It's "under construction"...
