Great! Keep in mind that I used 2 x 10's, double strung, with similar uprights, to handle the load.

oh yes i know about that on the addition i just did the customer also wanted a room built in the attic of the main house only problem was his joists were all 2x8 I was finally able to convince him to let me sister 2x10's to the 2x8's i would've never built that room on 2x8's so i will be putting some 2x10's up there before i add more weight. thanks for the input Havasu.

I personally thought at first it would be an overkill but with tape and textured drywall under it, I didn't want any flex at all. Now I'm glad I did.

Its not overkill at all any structural engineer will tell you 2x10 is minimum for any floor joist span over 10'. I have a chart for rafters and floor joists and it says the same thing any span over 10' needs a 2x10 joist as far as the joists being double strung that might be a bit over kill but better to have done it and not need it than to have not done it and need it!

so i have finally started on my F-250 tranny rebuild and i was moving along smoothly until i had to much clearance in a clutch pack it calls for an 0.030-0.050 gap and its at 0.052 to much gap for me! my rebuild manual says that thicker snap rings are available so......off to ford i go turns out they offer they offer three differant sizes so i ordered the two biggest and I was told they would be there today only thing is when i went to getem only one of them came in and it wasnt any thicker than the one i have. parts man says it might be monday before the other one gets here its on back order!! Ya'll pray for my Jeep I'm workin her like a truck shes holdin up fine with no issues as of yet but its only a matter of time pullin the mobile shop with it. Jeeps ain't built for this kinda work but...... i gotta make a livin so we'll just keep on keepin on.

Good luck with it. You are more a man then I, I'm scared to tackle an auto trans rebuild.

its not as bad as most make it out to be. once u know the basics and have a good manual for the trans your workin on. the main thing with rebuilding automatic transmissions is it has to be CLEAN as in u would eat off it clean. and the clearances in the clutch packs have to be right to much clearance and its gonna slip!

I think it would be easier to split an atom than figure out how to rebuild an auto transmission.
