Jeff's gotta' work today, but I'm doin' some last minute stuff on his caaar for next week. We came up with a 5-6-R lockout for his 6 spd. Couple little things left to work on and it'll be ready to test. Jeff's got to install longer wheel studs and get the tires mounted and then we'll be ready for T&T. There's no T&T scheduled for this week so we'll have to make due with a couple short squirts out south of town. Then we gotta' strip all the stuff off the track loader trailer and turn it back into a caar hauler. Got a trans cooler on the p.u. yesterday, Needs an oil change and I'm replacin' the belt just for insurance against breakdown on the road. The belt on it now is vintage '92. Still the original belt, little cracked from 169,000 miles of drivin', but still goin' strong. :wink: :wink: Who says domestic products don't last. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
Gary put a new tensioner on it when you change the belt !!! never seen a belt break yet but a ton of tensioners fail !! save the old belt Justin Case
GOOD TO GO !!

That might be how it plays out Doc. Since I'm in thrash mode already. Lotta' sign stuff to get in order B4 the trip. Not Just E-ville, but we are also headed for Tennessee a week after the DNL's. That'll be in the Monte tho.

BTW: I may have changed the WP & ALT a while back. Don't remember for sure. It woulda' been years ago if I did. :?: See what happens when you get old. :oops: :oops:
