Do you want the radius arm stuff that went with the front axle you picked up? Dave dropped it off here at the house yesterday. I will be out in the barn tomorrow working on getting the front axle out of the Toyota if you want to stop on your way home from work.

I will be out of work way before you, that is if you are working all day. So if by chance something changes I will text you and let you know if I'm going to step out for a while and not be here.

Got the motor up on the stand, gonna start cleaning it up, putting the front explorer accessories on it and replacing the rusted out oil pan.

Changing plans on the trans......was gonna do a c4/d20 but now I am gonna run 4R70W and a 205.

Got my trans today.

I think a warmed up 351 would be plenty for that. The 302 in it works great, too good to pull it. If my cash tree sprouts this year then some upgrades could happen. I have enough projects for now so I will live through your build. Don't let me down, haha.


I have a guy that wants to buy mine but I am not sure I am ready to sell it.
