Race Prep is in overdrive
It is official, I am signed up for the ECORS Race in Auburn, AL on April 30th (next Saturday). I'm in Class B and it will be wheel to wheel racing.
I wish some of you bastards lived a little closer, I'm at my technical limit trying to get all of this stuff completed in time.
Huge thanks to Scwabe Off-road, I took the jeep over there this weekened to get more hands cranking on the nuts and bolts.
First up is prepping the transmission for the upcoming strain-
Dropping the old:
Literally, dropping the old.....
New 5 quart pan (old is 4 quarts):
Changed the filter:
Bolting it up:
Done and done:
Next up was keeping the new fluid cool.
Removing the headlight for easy access in front of the radiator:
Sneaking the transmission cooler back there.... not an easy task:
Getting the plumbing together:
Mounted up! About 70% of it is above the winch for good air flow:
Next simple, fun, getting sun burned project (89 degrees in Charlotte today)-
Battery tie down- drilled holes for mounts:
Mounted and terminals cleaned:
More pictures to come..... it was a busy weekend
