Gee I take the day off to throw in a CB and this place is just plain old dead. Well Andy brought over his SWR meter and it maxed that thing out. It was doing the same thing with his CB so we are thinking that the SWR meter itself is bad.

Yep like Jared said, happens to mine once in a while too. WD40, flip bike upside down WD40, let soak. Just like new! Try that before taking them apart.

It can't make my spa instantly hot right now!!! Darn it!!! I must've accidentally hit it off the other day. Just went out to hop in and it's friggen ice cold. Lame!!!


I did manage to get the engine about 90% buttoned up on the race truck though. Just need to mount the remote oil filter and route the oil lines, then fill up fluids, mount the coilovers and turn the key! If it comes alive take it around the block and then rip the rear suspension off it and start getting that cycled and dialed in better. If all goes well I should have the front and rear 100% done by end of the weekend. Then next week trans mount and following week wiring, ammo cans and slap the interior back in and park it!!! Then it's time for the exploder build!!!! YIKES!!!

Picked up my front 3rd member for it today. Brand new gears, seals and bearings. Just need to pull the locker out of my other one and slap it in and then it's ready to go. Should be getting my front fenders for it next weekend and hoping to find rear shocks for it also.
