    I could be wrong here but having a pile of newer Mopars to include my 01 Ram which has the same set up, I believe that it "senses" the pulse of the rotor or something to that effect. I remember reading something in one of the mags about speed sensors and how they work. I am sure a Google search would provide something. It seems like a very simple affair and I believe is the same deal as my viper (01 was the first year for ABS and I don't believe it has a tone ring either).

    found this:The front wheel bearings listed above all share a unique design feature. They are all double row angular contact with a split inner ring. The distinctive feature on these bearings is that one of the two seals on the bearing has a built in magnetic impulse wheel. Caution should be taken to make sure that the seal with the ABS impulse ring is installed in the correct direction. The side with the impulse ring needs to be installed closest to the ABS sensor. If it is installed backwards, the ABS system will not function.

    gonna give it a better look

    ordered a set of these Friday: mustang 2 universal hubs
    anyone use them before?
    gonna order a set of ARP screw in studs just need to figure out what length to go with and if i want an open lug that the stud pokes out of or a shorter stud that the lug nut conceals. anyone got any suggestions on the length ?
    probably going to go with 13" cobra brakes just so i can grab pads and rotors from the local parts store when i need to.
    also pulled the air bag out of the steering wheel tonight.
    thats about all for now

    well finally got around to installing the oil pump pick up tube, windage tray and oil pan today. the pick up tube did not fit, the bolt hole on the tube that attaches it to the pump had to opened up a bit to make it work. you could rotate the tube and the hole would line rite up but then the tube would hit the windage tray and would be way off from the mounting stud on the pick up end. talked with Tom at Milodon and he said the one i had should fit and if it didn't then i needed the other pick up, so i ordered the other pick up from Summit, it shows up and its way off. so i sent that one back and just reamed out the hole a bit. with the windage tray in place and just held in with 4 bolts i started to install the pick up tube only to find that the bracket that bolts to the stud hits the windage tray. so off came the windage tray to clearance it a bit. so now everything clears and is bolted up. just gotta figure out how tight the oil pan bolts are supposed to be, i got them torqued down about 44 inch lbs right now, have to get them tight enough that the pan won't leak but not to tight where it deforms the oil pan.... anyone know how tight i can torque the pan bolts down before the Milodon pan starts to bend ?

    i think the factory spec is 106 in lbs which is just under 9 ft lbs., the pan should handle that?

    just going to hold on to these for a while, not sure if i will attempt to use the rear but it would be nice to have an independent rear and it would solve the wheel speed sensor with the Nag1 but it might limit wheel size.

    well still waiting on the frame rails to come in, supposed to ship on may 18th. in the mean time i dropped the motor and tranny in just to see whats gonna hit and whats not. trimmed a little off the passenger frame rail to clear the alternator and exhaust manifold. also cut out part of the tranny tunnel. I'm going to just set the tranny level with the rockers for now then reset it when the car is on all fours at ride hight later. i never noticed the old engine sitting so close to the passenger side frame rail, anyone have any pictures of a new hemi in an e-body with an RMS front k-frame to compare mine too?

    started messing around with the dash this week. just trimming it up a bit, hoping to get it in this weekend and mock up the steering shafts and some other stuff to see if i have a little room to shift the motor over an inch or so towards the drivers side to gain a little room on the passenger side. gotta look around to see if i can find a set of srt8 stock exhaust or some factory truck exhaust to see how they'll fit. took about 2 inches from the center of the dash and sanded down some of the plastic ribs of the bottom of the dash to get it to sit a bit closer to the bottom of the wind shield, should be a little easier now to see what needs to be removed. i also started putting together some of the front suspension.

    dash is pretty much in its new home just have to add two bolts on the sides just to make sure it doesn't move. also i have to put a couple of studs on the underside of the front of the dash just to keep it snug up front. the dash sits about a half inch higher then the original and and about an inch and a half closer to the windshield. steering wheel fits great and i thought the seats from the charger were to big but they're going to work out just fine. just going to have to remove a little bit of the floor board. just have to order some parts and mock up the steering shafts. hopefully get some more stuff done tomorrow.
