    That is a very cool video. You young wrench turning computer whiz's never cease to amaze me. I just would have no idea what to do to post a video.

    Oh, congrats on the build up parts.

    My mud pits had water all year long just about. Even in mid August I got my stepside locked front and rear on 39.5" Boggers stuck in the harder pit. Less water and more thick mixed up mud by then. But the mud pits are no longer in existance since I had them filled in. All I have are these last videos of them... http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-4639329447486339499&q=%22Mud+Days+2004%22+playable%3Atrue

    June of 2005... lots of water...

    Anyways, didn't mean to hijack the thread.

    Did you get the cam in your motor yet?

    Have everything installed, WOW does it sound great!!! There is an issue with the carb adapter plate that I was waiting on,the back barrels only open part way.I found this out on the maiden voyage,when it starved out for fuel.Have to pull carb and file down the plate for more clearance, at least that is what I think it is,not the carb:dunno: .Looking down the barrels you can see them hanging up.I did swap carbs to a rebuilt one I had on the shelf,so I don't think that was the problem, I hope.Anyway gear drive sounds awesome,cam sounds great. I'm impressed.:D
