I'll be on my way home shortly. I was supposed to head back this afternoon, but we're going to try to beat the weather. It's already looking ugly out there. Looking forward to the air sickness.

I got to fly this a little on the way in. Flying a plane wasn't as difficult as I thought it might be. I know the hardest part is taking off and landing, but moving around up there was surprisingly easy. I wasn't expecting it to be like calculus, but I was expecting something more. I had the most difficulty with small movements. Steering was not as responsive or immediate as driving and I tended to oversteer.

flying is not hard at all, it is everything else associated with it. Actually if there is nothing else around it can be flat out boring. When I was Active Duty I had an incentive flight while tdy at Holloman AFB, the take off in full after burner and max climb was freaking awesome. But once we got up and to the range, when you mixed the overcast sky with the New Mexico ground it got boring after about 20 minutes. There was nothing to reference your speed off of besides the gauges. The good news is I almost over-g'd the jet on several occasions and it seemed like the pilots main job was to make sure I did not break mach once we where out on the range.

They set those prices because they love to do it. They aren't in it for the money.

Peddle assembly install sucks!!! Anyone into self torture? If so, feel free to stop by tonight and put my peddles in! I walked away from the jeep in disgust after about 45 minutes of no progress other then adding hurt to my hands and fingers. LOL

Transmission is bolted up, starter installed, clutch slave installed. Slap the peddles in tonight (I hope!!!!) and then if that goes quickly somehow... Then I'll throw the T-case in also and get all that linkage hooked back up and try to get the driveshafts back in assuming the lengths are still fine. Maybe even get the skidplate back up in place. That'll just leave the shifter, center console and other random interior parts I've pulled off and some wiring stuff.

Other then the peddles last night the whole trans swap has been pretty straight forward and easy so far. Note to self, next time pull the cooler lines before you start installing new trans cause you'll have to pull it back off, including the clutch, flywheel and backing plate... LOL

Also, didn't get nearly as much done yesterday as I'd hoped cause I got sucked into the TV watching supercross in the morning. Then spent half the day running parts! Went to pickup the flywheel and crank position sensor. Got home, realized I'd forgot a new pilot bearing and clutch alignment tool. Run back out and can't find anyplace that sells just the tool, it's only included in a clutch assembly. Fine, I'll borrow one... Head home, realize the throw out bearing seems good but it has one rough spot that probably wasn't anything but I decide screw it, I'm putting a new clutch in it too since it's all out. So run back out and return the pilot bearing and just buy an entire clutch assembly! Awesome right!!!! Head home, crawl under it, slap the tin up there, put the flywheel in place and find the bolts that held the flexplate on are now too short for the flywheel!!!! Crap!!! Off to ace hardware, I need 6 bolts, they've only got 3... So then run across town to another ace hardware to pick up the remaining 3 bolts. Finally got everything in possession to start working on it around 2 in the afternoon. LOL Oh well, still not a bad Sunday and I'm happy to see noticeable progress. I never feel like removing stuff is progress... It doesn't feel like progress till new parts are going in!

So, why is that flight attendants on commercial flights tell you to shut off phones during the flight? I'm using mine on this little plane and nothing bad seems to be happening. It's not like we're crashi

I did not but that might be happening tonight. My issue is the way I have to bend and tweak myself around to get in there I can only get in there with one arm/hand basically and I think that I need a 2nd arm in there. I'm the guy that would rather hurt myself for 45 minutes trying to be lazy rather then just pulling the seat and going what probably really is the easy route! LOL

Ysb, pull up!

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

Don't get pull up and pull out confused! They will both save your life however.
