ok so shocks are all in, steering is just about done all I have left to do to it is the steering coupler and backyard alignment(think I be needin some balljoints)....hoping to fire it off later today and try and drive it around to the drive way...I do still have to finish bleeding the brakes...oh and set timing and points once I have it running...definitely gonna be going to the gm style "HEI" dist for 150$ once I got some extra pennies...still gonna have to make up some doors and finish the paint work but its too cold at this point for me to worry bout any of that(doors needed yes, paint can wait)...would be nice to just take it all back apart take all the pieces and entire body over too where I used to work and have them powder coat the entire thing darn near for free....maybe next year once I remove the roof to replace the multi-channel section that attaches the roof to the body and gives the structure strength...ehh it will prolly end up getting good quality camo job sooner or later im still not sure....ahh the issues that arise from having ADHD....oh look a squirrel.....im still gathering pics so sorry for that....

ok so im kinda stoked the 4wheeler turned out to be a low mileage 2005 artic cat 250 2x4...it has spark and lights all work oil looks good tank is full of bad gas..gonna clean carb and tank tomorrow...had to drill the ignition...as it came with no key...not sure how hard its supposed to be to pull the cord...I figured it would at least have as much compression as a lawnmower..

well turns out the bleeder screws on the rear wheel cylinders are frozen solid...which halts the progress on the little dj till Friday at least...but at least got the 4wheeler to sputter...everything is clogged up with old congealed gas so well sputtering is life tho...sorta..

thanks...the .50cal turned out to be crap(wont fire) even after 2 days worth of work...the 4wheeler just seems to need thawing out(clean tank carb etc) it does however need the starter freewheel clutch assembly($200)....but it has a pull cord...and im contemplating on passing up the zuki so as to have funds to invest in the artic cat....ive done bunch of research on the bike and it turns out they are highly sought after(at least the 4wd versions are) and will supposedly flat out kill a set of 29.5 outlaws(what ever that means)...I never had a 4wheeler before...so im kinda stoked...hopefully ill be able to control myself and just keep it mostly stock for hunting purposes...but to have something I can throw in back of truck and go play in woods....oh im so f****d....Yay me more things to P.O. the wife with......

update on the little dj.....

trans lines are in as well as dipstick o-ring...have still not accomplished getting a correct alt belt...never did get it fired off the other day...have been somewhat distracted...but after driving the old ford to the hunt spot yesterday(scary very scary) I think I got the motivation I need to get er done...still need money(Friday) but there are some piddly things I can wrap up til then oh and I know you guys are still waiting on pics...sorry...but if its any consolation so are the guys on the 4wheeler forum..well that's all
