Replaced all the U-Joints on my rear drive shaft, the old ones were pretty much falling apart. Smoooooth riding now. No more drive line vipes.

Also diagnosed a bad coax cable with my new Kit from RightChannel radio. Emailed them and a new cable is on the way. Great service!

Tear the sucker off. The ride is smoother without it and if you check out some of the history here, it is safe to assume that a large majority have at least removed the rear trac bars.

Well I inserted a 1 inch adapter plate that is entirely open in the middle, since my edelbrock manifold is open as well.

Turned down both screws in the front and opened them up 2.25 turns.

Seems to run better but i'm having issues hitting the throttle under load, from a dead stop. Seems to sputter a bit.

I'm going to try and retard the timing and see if that helps out (the motor was almost fully warm when I did this)


Opinions are appreciated.

I think after I do a full tune up I should be able to pass emissions, the air and fuel mixture screws were almost 4 turns out each :


Also shimmed up my starter since it was tearing out teeth on my flywheel. Flywheel looks like a shark went around and bit the edges in multiple spots. So I went and bought 1/4 inch worth of shims, inserted them all and now it purrs like a kitten, and starts every time haha....

Tore apart my rear axel to find the grinding sound and the reason for no reverse..... i was really hopeing it was the rear end (differintial was just rebuilt) and not the transmition. i found 2 bolts laying in the bottom of the differintial that had fallen out of the ring gear, luckily and suprisingly the bolts didnt do any damage to any of the gears!!!!

Washed it- accumulated mud and other stuff from two days of wheelin'. Washed the underside while it was still on the trailer; needed 4wd just to get it off! Bought a pressure washer to use on the inside... May have to put it back on the trailer to get it all cleaned off. Found about five pounds of leaves and twigs.

I got one ill sell ya.

Watched it sit outside in the rain unhappy because it has it's top on.

Hopefully later I'm going to be getting the new (to me at least) wheels mounted on it and swap out the ones it currently has.

Well, first off it almost made me late to school since the battery died, so i said some curse words and took my moms car. Got back jumped it, drove right to salvos and got a new battery. Luckily i did because it didnt start in the parking lot, so i put the new one on and turned the key and............................. started right up.

So pretty much i got a new battery. haha
