    I have been busy on the ramjet this weekend I installed the new headers the old one rubbed on the shackles and the muffler shop will bend something up to the shorteys to the pipesthis week I can pick it up on sat and then start the grill swap 86 to 89 like this http://www.coloradok5.com/grilleswap.shtml
    finish that with the big block 4 core rad swap probly next weekend do the electric fan install it is a lot of work but the list is long
    42s

    good luck on the upgrades.

    I think the camp closes somewhere around there,(Uwharrie) but the exact date slips my mind. Would love to do a paragon run.

    That's great that you were able to put a dent in your to-do list. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif You sounded so bummed the last time you posted with your list and you seemed overwhelmed. Hang in there! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: I have been busy on the ramjet

    most of the agr kits ive seen tend to leak and not perform as well as the wto kit or just a backyard hydraulic kit

    patrick you remember boss's problems at paragon last year...his pump was leaking and below like 2500 rpm he couldnt turn worth a damn

    I do not think he replaced the pump. I think he did the spring trick. I wish he still posted. I would like to know.

    It is fine on the street. Boss drove his to Tellico and back and up and back to Paragon towing a trailer. BTW Boss is doing fine, he bought a house and has been working a lot on that. He hopes to be back out wheeling next year. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: I have been busy on the ramjet

    I might test it on a trail or to but I have a short list of things to do

    To do ASAP

    Install the electric fans I have a trick idea and I want to go to fazzos and get some steel
    Wire the fans
    Fix the electric front end from the grill swap
    And install the new to me gray seats (I gave the old ones away)

    To do this spring

    The 42s
    Rock ram
    Rock ram pump
    Hurkuliner (need it to be over 70 to install or roll)
    And some time I got to fix the trailer, make it wider and removable fenders /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
