My flight east for work got cancelled so I started insulating the top a bit, hoping to stay warmer this year since the top seals better.



















24 hours until Snofari







Back together now though...

Still figuring out the 4 speed, gear selection is everything in the snow with skinny tires and 3.73 gears. Unfortunately my input bearing is making a ton of noise.

Nice snow climb. You going to overhaul the 4 speed?

I also probably missed this but do you have a heater that works? I don't recall it in the build.

Yeah I am going to have to. There is a heater, but the 225 V6 just won't get warm in the winter, even with the t-stat in it. I also use a propane catalytic tent heater to help out.

The only time it started to warm up was a LONG hill climb where I was bouncing it off redline the whole way up... even then I don't think it was warm,but with a cheap gauge and no overflow tank on this run I yanked the cardboard anyway.

Pic winching out out '47 Tractor. A few minutes before it was 2/3 of the way up the tires.

The proposed site for the new SE Michigan ORV park. The second test run was Nov. 1st and 2nd.

It will be awesome if they get it open.

Well, before I got completely discouraged as it was looking rough I figured I better start some repairs. My buddy Adam stumbled on Early 5 2.5" lift springs brand new from 4wd for an amazing deal and I took advantage of it. We threw the rears on tonight.

Old springs...



New



Mocked up the half cab...






Finished throwing the new front springs on, nice and level now. Doesn't look as beat to piss
