Thanks for the update and nice seats. I bet those are cheaper than the recarro's I used in my old truck!

Hows mileage been? I have a gen 1 6bt for the sub.

I got the seats thru Summit, free shipping and no Tax, they were $600 for the pair and the adapters are $100 each.

Mileage is still 13-15MPG but I drive fast(75-80) and the RC weights +7000lbs, I am rebuilding a 47RH but I doubt the lockup with really help much.  We will see what is dose after the Cummins rebuild and the 47RH

How did the rear bumper re build turn out? I don?t recall seeing a finished one after the swing out decided to jump ship. Also, not that it?s worth anything now, and the seats are gross (dirty) but the 92 seats are in decent shape....

Didn?t think you did, you know where it?s at and where it?s going, so no worries.

But seriously though, that rear bumper gas/air tank thing you built or were building, how did it turn out?

That picture of the seats makes it look like you are about to send that RC into orbit....

Remembering of course that recently his boss did just that same sort of thing!

So the block and crank are back from the machine shop they both checked out no issues/cracks everything is STD.  This engine was a core I picked up awhile back that had a broken camshaft from one of the gearcase bolts that came loose and fell into the gears. This did much damage to the engine, broke the cam, which then allowed the valves to hit the pistons, then all the pushrods bent, the tappets broke from the pushrods going into pretzel mode.

One other thing that happened was the keyway sheared on the crank gear I didn?t notice this the crank shop called me and told me about it, this will be fun fixing because I have to cut what?s left of the key so I can pull the gear.   

I still have ALOT of detail work I have to do to the block before I start reassembly!
