    Is it harvesting vermin? If so, I'd vote to keep the little devil. If not........

    finally got the parts

    it drives fantastic, runs better then it ever did.... sure, there's a transmission noise but it's not all the time so it's fine... F I N E.... I'm going to send it. I have a spare
    before I moved, I replaced 2 trailer tires - one of the old ones was losing air so I simply got 2 new tires and now have a decent spare

    worth the peace of mind.... anyway, Thursday I head out

    it's like I have every heim EXCEPT the one I need... Fudge Barnes 4wd

    It doesn't rattle but I know it's loose so need to wait for the right heim

    I've been meaning to make the gas cans held with more then hopes and dreams

    oh good grief.... so I tightened up the steering and now have death wobble.... turns out one of the panhard heims is worn.... so next day some parts... I wish I could trailer to/from trail but there will be road driving back from the run and I do not want to drive it like this...

    well this is fun, drove the '40 tonight, there's a hitch in the steering box. This just started after the last round of repairs and fixes.... you can muscle through it but it's definitely not safe.

    so I guess I'm pulling the box apart to figure out the why. While I'm at it, I'll drill and tap for hydro-assist... but I don't need this, I'm suppose to leave for the Rubicon in 12 days.

    Your shop lion seems to be fitting in nicely. Have you noticed a corresponding decrease in pest activity?

    final task... replace the steering joint

    easy access.. or not

    as you can clearly see... this is a cat

    changing it wasn't terrible. I put a collapsible shaft on the steering shaft - thus, just slide it back, pull the old off, put the new in place... take picture, remove cat, take picture....
