You suck! I was all sorts of excited when I read your first post.. I love those old Scramblers!

Me too! It would be so awesome to find one at a decent price! There's a guy driving a really nice, completely done-up one around town.

Amazing how much a couple panels clean up the overall look. They're just laying in place, not actually secured. Just tossed them in to make sure they'd still clear between the shock bodies and where they sit and to get a rough idea. Obviously I still have coils to toss in the mix over the threaded body shock...

As much as I enjoy all kinda of fancy pants beer, there is a time and a place for cheap beer.

By volume, I have probably consumed more highlife, hamms, PBR, and coors (original, not light) than any other beers combined most likely. When out by the pool/lake/river or on a camping trip I'd much rather have some cheap beer than a fine craft brew most of the time. There's a time and a place!

I'm not a snob about it, drink what you love, love what you drink!

Does anyone else find them living their life via lists of things to do that they create? If anyone needs me, I'm busy and it's your fault you didn't get your name on the list before I just hit print. LOL

Have you tried an off road carb that can handle offroad use.

I think he is talking more about the power loss at altitude. Fuel injection adjusts for the altitude...carbs have to be re jetted. Macks canyon is around 7500-8000 ft if I remember correctly.

Precisely. One can adjust timing at altitude to kind of limp through but there is no way to coke rely compensate for being way too rich.

With that, it was also hot as balls and I was having vapor lock problems. Didn't actually shut the truck down but it was surging and coughing due to what I can only assume is boiling fuel.

Fuel injection fixes all of the above.

When we were going slow along Mack's canyon road it was no problem whatsoever. The issue was gaining altitude at speed under load.
