    I am going to be up that way tomorrow evening for about 9 or so days while working on a few ships in the area. If anyone wants to get together and shoot the breeze in the area while I am up there, PM me today or in the morning and I will shoot my numbers. Looks like I might be working a good bit during the day but could get together in the evening. I have reservations in the Little Creek lodge, I think.

    Thanks James (tx_colsanders) for giving me a call. It felt good to get out and meet another member on the board and show me a good spot to eat and drink at when I head up that way again.

    I was trying to convince him I was willing to turn wrenches. I have no problem helping others with their rigs while I am any where.

    My next trip got pushed tot he right so I will be up from the 6th to the 9th. Should be there around 4 or so on the 6th and hopefully heading south again on the 8th.

    HOPEFULLY at that point I will be done. I plan on getting the rear diff ready this weekend (brakes, bearings, etc.) and next weekend I hope to have the transmission and transfer case so I can install it all at once. Also may have to replace leaky rear main while I have the tranny off. Also might get a little energetic and drop the tank and put a new sending unit and hp fuel pump. I used to have my non working fuel guage understood but now its acting funny.

    Actually, You should bring your welder and we can put new floor panels in the front....;)

    Heading back up that way tomorrow. Leaving here in the afternoon. Should be a fairly easy trip this time. Hopefully I will be done in a day or 2 and will have a few days to messa round and do nothing. Give me a call if you need a hand this week during the evening.

    I'll be here. Just bought a tranny jack from Harbor Freight for $60 and bought one of their cheapo welders. Figure it will be good enough for floorpans. Going to start the work tomorrow, any help would be appreciated and rewarded w/ dinner and beer. Never installed a tranny before.:D

    Oh yeah, should have my seats and bumpers this week!!

    It's not that hard. I think the hardest part is getting to the bell housing bolts on the engine. Without a body lift it can prove to be quite a task. The tranny jack should do fine. Last one I pulled from underneath a truck was a 465 with no jack, just 2 of us and it was awkward as all get out. I will throw some work clothes in my bag. Might have to swing by and pick me up as there will only be one rental vehicle this time. Staying at the same place.



    Ahh yes, this one will take me to 3,999. I am pacing myself....:D :D
