Knew you get the hoist involved with this.

How much media did you use up? Thinking bout using walnut on mine. I did a frame once with sand and I wasn't clean for a week.

It was more on a PUN of SD Don. My running days are over, ankles are shot but I used to do a few miles without much issue. I can move if need be, but I pay the next day!

I Like it. Burn anything and run through anything!

I take all my pics with my cell and send to me at 70%. Works great!! Otherwise just use MS paint and resize at 50%.

That skirt finished it off nice. Maybe a few "kia" gussets so it stays as is?

Your gonna have to hang it on an engine hoist to paint it though!!!!!!!

Good to see you back here Norm. I have been through a few rainy seasons in my younger years on a farm in So Cal.

Running would be great, just like I need to do with my 1500 Sub. Don does not know what running is,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,  ::)

Speaking of the media, did you notice almost all newer shows have a homosexual part in them? They push it hard to make it seem the norm.

I don't care what someone does behind a closed door. I don't want to see it or hear about or have to explain to my kids why mike likes mike.

I got a couple of AGM batteries that use in the garage with the winch. Those would work great, no fumes and around $40 used at the battery store (where i looked at forklift batteries). If you know someone who works cell towers they cycle them out way before they need to, got 2 free!

I need to those hoses on mine and check the others. No codes but I keep loosing prime. Already did the head a few weeks back. Pumps right up and runs fine otherwise.

Look at the new CTS module form edge. I think it reads those codes and is bigger than the older ones like I have.

5818
Sounds like you covered all the base's.

Seafoam does wonders and would have freed those rings up for sure.

At least its out. Do a comp test and check the carb.

5819
Very nice work. Did you thing about using trim screws vs brads on the reassembly?

To bad about the gen, maybe the rings are just fouled, let it run a little.

That roof will need addressing soon. Looks like mine, 10 years old.

Capping the mounts will look good and the gusset will help for sure.

As for the upper tube, I'm sure you will think of something.

How are you going to grind all that covered up?

Both the case and that mill are nice.

The case is easy to justify and bet you can get parts for it and the CTD would fit right in.

Mill, I bet you could find a used one for a fair price. Unless you use it all the time it seems pricey new.

Wish I could do justice to Dons, but here is a little.

My Father, Fred Sr was born in 1936 and raised in a foster home by a man I called uncle Harold. I spent many a Christmas at his house and others as my father had joined the Marines a age 17.

He served 3 terms in Korea, 2 in Viet Nam. I remember the picture of him from there as we moved from base to base with small stints of him being home with us until I was in high school. One night I remember in a small apartment in Minn getting woken up and seeing him there and hugged him long, asking if was staying home?

He was big on scouts, camping, fishing and hunting. I guess trying to make a man of me. He retired from the Marines in 1977 as a gunny.

He got me into security and finally I became a corrections officer, then a Deputy Sheriff. At the graduation he was allowed to pin my badge on as he was a Commander in the Mare Federal Police. It was a great day for us both. My younger brother was killed about this time in 89 earthquake, this brought us closer as we had wait days for to find him, much less ID the body.

After this he and I went on a few hunting trips and I remember him getting Buck Fever. I would arrange for trips without his knowledge from his job and he hated it but loved it all the same. I would come into his office and rub his head, driving him crazy.

His favorite movie was "Purple Hearts' and he told how he lived "Bat 21"

The last thing I remember is I asked him to go fishing and he said he was to busy at work. He passed a week later at work, just 63. He never got to see any of his 3 grandchildren, but somehow we think he is here watching over them.

That first bumper was ugly, but I bet it would do the job.

9000 rnds? Must have been 7.62 as 556 would only weigh 270#, about a dressed out soldier. Still, 90 seconds from both could do lots of damage!!

The edelbrock vs the Holley/Roch is a much better off road carb. The side floats are the trick to that. I think the off road kit will help, but at angles a carb will have issues.

I have done this with springs before. Just run a bolt and a piece of rubber for a bushing. I think I will remove the short spring now as it should soften it up some without costing me little if any load rating, that SBC chevy is not going to move those much!!

Now obviously the bolts are not snugged up yet, but thats easy enough. Thought about putting SS in there but he said no need since they are sealed up.

Finally got my front springs back. Just standard length HD Tuff Country springs. However I have a military wrap added for safety and to help carry that extra weight of a CTD up there. He also increased the center bolt size as he didn't like what he saw. Plus I had him leave the strap open so I could run a bolt on the clamp for easier service if need be. I may remove the short bottom spring if a little stiff also even with the CTD.

Can't believe its been a week since I posted here. Got some DOT action in so all is good. Working on the house for a refi to make it look a tad better. Plus I twisted my ankle a little which I seem to do every 2-3 years and I'm moving a little slow.

Have been chasing parts though and got some new beadlocks to try out. They come from Performance Cryogenics located in the foothills above Sac. Just the drive alone was nice and was just about 1.5 hrs from the house. Sure was nice out of the burbs for a little.

Anyway, these are HD rubber almost 1 inch thick (think it is floor matting for horses) cut and joined with a plate and bolts. From some articles everything this guy makes is dead on. These look pretty solid (never dealt with locks before) and are $50, just like the PVC.

Inconsiderate wench!!

Possibly one of the tamer ways I could use to describe her. The leaks aren't bad, the rear pinion seal, the transfer case and oil pan seal need to be replaced, might do the trans pan as well. 2 of the 3 will be RTV'd, the other 2 I will order the seals off RockAuto.


You should see all the XJs out here, rust free. I was looking for a steering shaft (non ragjoint upgrade for the sub) and found at least 8 without trying at picknpull.

You're a bit out of travel distance.


However, I am going to go look at a 97 F250 w/ 7.3 either tonight or tomorrow.

Well, at least being a FORD is it the 7.3. Just be sure its a solid front axle Dana 60, not a 51 or flexy type ???

I am running a separate 5mic filter below (Just add a filter head)and a 2 micron Cat 049 filter up top. This system does not remove air nor will the pump self prime, but supplies 5-7 psi taking the work from the CPS up top. It will however let fuel flow if the pump stops a reason I chose it.
