Took a little different approach to the 14B shave today. I figure that inch isn't all that important in the grand scheme of things. It's a potatoe digger whether it's shaved or not I did take 1/2" off of the bottom of it to get to this point. It takes a while to cut through that thing, fuggin inch and a half or more thick....... No more straight lip to hang up on. At least it's sloped and transitions smooth now.
Here's my take on it:


Still waiting on fawking gears

Still no gears or tracking numbers for them. Ordered a D60 master install kit from JeeperzCreeperz today. Tracking number sent same day

, lazy would have been just leaving it. I shouldn't have a problem with it leaking this way and I can shave it more later if I want to. I think you'll agree I have more important things to spend time on if I ever hope to drive it.

TJ, you're rig will be done first, I would expect it too since you're buying it It's going to be sweet too, I'm happy for you

DO NOT DEAL WITH PORC.
No gears, no contact, going to the bank to dispute CC charges tomorrow.

Spent saturday making new arms for the bender out of 3/4". Thanks for the help Brett! Also picked up an enerpac air/hydraulic footpedal on friday. Need to buy a cylinder and build the bender yet.

Struggled Sunday with my t-case shifters. I want to stay mechanical but the front driveshaft isn't giving me many options. Here's what I'm dealing with. I'll redo the t-case crossmember if I have to. I ordered shifter cables today, I'm going to try to bring them under the t-case. I'll have to wait and see how that works out.



Tonight I pulled the front axle back out and started cleaning it up. If I ever get gears, I can finish the 14B up and tear the D60 down for rebuild.

Where it sits as of tonight.
