Charleau Gap 1-1-10

A big thanks goes out to Toby for setting this run up! I can say a good time was had by all!

I only had slight carnage...
1)more bent sheet metal (I need a cage!)

2)burped one tire almost flat before I caught it and got it aired back up before a full dismount...

3)burped a second tire and it did decide to make a full dismount on the inner bead... but was quick to remount once we had it off and strapped (I love OBA!)

4)..and my clutch MC went out about 2 miles from the final gate. I nursed it out ok and then we noticed that I was leaking gear oil..

5)...all six bolts holding the transmission to the t-case were loose!!! Tightened them back up and dumped in what I had (30w motor oil) and drove it home. She'll be getting the full service this week!

Here are some pics... I've got more, but have to take off for now, more later!

A buddy of mine named Trevor owns it, he bought it from RedHorseman here on the board (if he's still here) it now has the 2.7L toy motor (3RZ ?? I think..) We found the right throwout bearing and it has a late model wide rear now too.

Duct tape is like the Force. It has a light side and a dark side and it holds Tice's truck together.

I don't forget, my brain just disregards insignificant details in my sleep.
