    This guy's working on a SAS on his '94 burb getting it ready to act as a chase truck for his K5 that's running class 3 in the BAJA 1000 next weekend. Too many things are not coming together so I'm asking for some help for him. There are some specific parts he needs that are going to be hard to come up with on the weekend, some are parts store items, some are a bit tougher. Some things he needs are mostly labor help.
    1: We had a set of F350 dual shock mounts ordered but they didn't show so now we need some way to mount shocks on the front. If all else fails, a set of F250 shock towers would work, or a set of the factory dual shock mounts from our straight axle trucks could do the trick too.
    2: He's having some problems with some corroded fuel lines around the fuel tank and needs to replace them. Some EFI hose from NAPA would do it but it needs to be done.
    3: We had a light bar ordered but it also didn't show, he really needs a way to get a couple of Hella's mounted on the front so we can see while chasing the race K5.
    4: He needs a set of 3/4T ubolt plates and round bottom ubolts to bolt the 14FF into the rear. The original axle was the 10 bolt.
    5: General help putting the SAS swap brackets on the front, I don't think it's started yet. Some fab skills and general working on truck skills would be very welcome. He also needs to ream the ford knuckles out to fit the new HD tie rod ends.

    If any of you are in the area and are available to help out with this stuff, I'm sure he could keep you fed and we'd all appreciate it very much. And he'll gladly pay for the parts, just to get them now!
    Post up contact info here, I'll be checking in through the evening and day tomorrow and I'll put you in touch with him.

    thanks for anything you can do.

    OK, just lost my reply. I'll start passing along info. Chris (the guy we're talking about) is in Arlington Heights. I don't know where that is in relation to anything else. The access to a 4wd shop on a weekend could be huge.
    Bubba, he sent me a link with pics of the K5 but I'm not at work now. I'll get you some of my own.
    Maybe from the inside...
