I ended up having to pull the trans back out. No 3rd and no reverse. STUPID oversight on my part. I forgot to install the inner lip seal in the direct drum. I remember looking for the groove but didn't see it. Now that there was some residual tranny fluid on it, it showed right up. Installed and it air checked fine. I think I also discovered an incorrect spring in my VB but it really doesn't matter because I just ordered up a brandy new Broader Performance full manual reverse VB. That will be nice because I can eliminate the modulator and governor from the equation. Now I don't need any vacuum for any part of this truck except the PCV valve.

HOPEFULLY that shows up by Thursday at the latest so I can get that puppy together,running and cleaned up for a long holiday weekend tearing up the streets.

OK- After a bunch of screwing around unsuccessfully with youtube I finally set up an account on Vimeo.

New valve body shipped from TX this morning and the new rear bumper brackets just arrived from the laser cutters.

It's going to be a busy week trying to get this thing together before the car show on Sunday.

Here's a nice walk around without the case on my phone. Way better sound!

Both new bumpers are built and bed-lined too.

Yeah- details details.... It's hard to find 3 tall people on short notice to put that thing back on. We'll get it this week.

Thanks for the offer but unfortunately I'll be in the office for the majority of the day. If you are going to be around in the evening I'll take you up on that offer!

I put the 1st 35 miles on it today. It ran out pretty darn good. There's a couple things that need a little attention, but nothing major thank goodness.

I romped on it a little going about 25 through intersection and the rear tires broke loose so I think this thing is going to be a fun little bundle of joy up in the sand this year!

Sucks as I doubt it. Running up to pick up a car around noon or so and headed back.

If the bike was usable I would come back too. But I guess the timing just not meant to be!

No biggie man. I'll have a handful of people out there this afternoon doing a little tuning session so I think we'll probably toss it on then.

Fordboy is going to come out with his wideband O2 sensor and laptop so we can get the carbs set correctly. We are going to tune my Bronco and my buddies '67 mustang that he just buttoned up. It's going to be a fun day at the corral!

I think the horse liked it too.

Tuning session is on hold for a week or so. It's running plenty rich so I'm not worrying about hurting anything at this point.
