Ended up buying a torque converter today, wasnt planned, but after about 18 phone calls I couldn't find anybody that could clean a converter short of simply rebuilding it . Motor is loaded and hopefully gets set in tomorrow

I think bones would get the most credit , since he actually ran it and used this style.

Yeah old motor and the trans I picked up from bones. Probably pick up another motor throughout the year and go through it with some mods and in the winter or so swap it out.

I need about a 3'x3' atleast 3/8" thick. If anybody has some that would be sweet, sooner the better , Saturday is coming fast .


Running elec. sucks esc when shit doesn't match up .

Putting things together sucks when you realize you forget things, like welding in o2 sensor bungs on your exhaust, after your exhaust is installed .

Last year I needed a hyd hose made for my power steering pump to orbital. The pump side had a specific fitting not found in hyd field. COmpany I was buying stuff from said they couldn't help me so I back yard hacked something together, while it worked for awhile it ended up failing and caught the eb on fire . So this time around I wanted it done better...all I needed was a fitting crimped or clamped onto a hose.

I went to mason dynamics---sent me to bond fluidaire cause they couldn't do anything
Bond Fluid aire sent me to thermo king because they couldn't do anything for me---
thermo king crimped the fitting to the hose for me, said no warranty if it leaked and charged me nothing . I am positive it won't leak and should serve me well .

Need more parts


And I can't figure out how to make my winters shifter work with my transmission. The driveshaft is to close and the cable is to dam stiff to bend and reroute.
