I also believe that I suggested that we just take his 241 apart and fix it, but no we had to put a junk yard unit in with no VSS thinking we were all cool and crap. Then "have to bang shift it" cause it's the wrong thing.I believe that was the most common answer from the office pool at Moab
The "Might As Well" syndrome.I've got the S-10 torn down, the clutch wasn't too fond of the Nitrous so it killed itself. Swapping the clutch out snowballed into a lot of fab work, the advanced adapters bellhousing was cracked due to rocks getting tossed around by the clutch. I had a factory NV4500 chevy bellhousing so I swapped to that which reminded me that the AA bellhousing is 1/4" deeper than the factory one... Exhaust mods, trans mount mods and transfer case mount mods followed suit.
I have the parts to fix my rear locker as well, so that will need to go in.
When I was hooking up the front driveshaft I realized I have a TON of backlash. Those are the gears M4O installed for me a few BBs ago, so I need to tear that down and see if I need new gears again.
Other than that, it's ready to go! We're going to Sand Hollow in April so it will be ready before then, then I'll have to fix whatever I break there before BB.
You never have plenty of time. Quit saying that.My list grew a lot, but have plenty of time.
New rear suspension is the biggest one( on order), also would like to replace the factory trans crossmember for a fabricated one.
Once the springs come in, it's headed to the fab guy pending if I get shocks in time. I wasn't going to do anything this year but landed on a nice side job where I needed to spend it somewhere as payment.The "Might As Well" syndrome.
