Figured i update this

Been working on it all day today. Got my new headers on and are going to work great. No problems clearing the plugs like the last set. Now i just have to redo some of the exhaust.

Also got my new intake gaskets on. Alot nicer then the last set.

Got my alternator wires fixed from when they melted down when my alternator melted down. Got a 95amp alternator. Now i just need to get a new battery. Old one is shot. Tested it at work and got nothing.

Started swapping out my old broken power steering hose for my new one but it is a little different then the old one so im just need to figure out the best may to rought it away from the headers with the least amount of stress on the hose so it dont break again.

I just need to redo the exhaust, make my new plug wires, time the motor, put the front right birfield and seal in, put my front drive shaft in, run breather for the trans, get a belt for the power steering pump, and a few other things to do before its ready for mounds Thursday. Alot work little time.

Think that covers it all for now.

I plan on it jared. Built every thing with the intent of being every being able to run it donw the road and wheel it. Nothing to wild like a big cam, etc. You know how i wheel jared "Make it or break it" so ive been trying to make every thing relieable.

The few times ive driven it ive loved it. Tons of power and thats when i was still having problems with it not running right. Thanks, been trying to do every thing right and the way i whated it from the start.

Default Time For a New Update

What i though was a over pressuriving cooling system from bad head gaskets ended up being a the heater core inlet hose at the fire wall leaking bad. Thing is that you cant see the leak because it is behind the gromet at the fire wall. Only way i found it was when i set and held the engine at a higher rpm and waited for a leak. Sure not it wasnt coming from the intake gaskets being bad it was the heater core hose shooting it onto the back of the intake. So i just put new head gaskets and intake gaskets etc on to find out it was just somthing stupid. At least now i have a real nice set fel pro gaskets on there now. So for now i just turn off the heat and it doesnt leak.

Now i just need to get a different set of valve cover gaskets and it good to go hopfully. There leaking right down on to the exhaust so every time i stop some were it starts smoking bad.

Just need to time it in now and thinking i need to put a warmer therastat in cuz it doesnt even get warm enough going down the road to turn the fans on.

Been fun driving it today. No getting traction with the roads being wet, just starts spinning. Need to stop doing burn outs with the 37's luckly most of them have been when its wet out though

O yea and stupid thing i went to time it today and grabbed hold of the disturbotor to clock it and sure not i toached the coil wire and got zipped in one arm and out the other. Couldnt feel my arms for a good min or two.

If i get a chance i might try and get some videos up. And some pictures of the new V8 chevota emblems i had made today.

Default Updates as of 3-16

Broke somthing in the front axle at the dog party and bent my tie rod in half so it was time to start tearing things apart. Descided to just pull the whole front end out.

So i got the front out and all tore apart and found that my driver side birfield blew up.

So now my plan is to truss the axle from end to end, put a inspection hole for the ring and pinion, and add front diff armor. Cut off all the tabs yesterday that i didnt need. Now i just need to get my parts. For now im leaving the shafts out till i can afford some longfields. Not putting stock ones back in ill just break them again.

And to fix the steering im switching to cross over steering. Getting the steering box off my cousin and then getting a kit for the rest.

Heres a few pictures ive put on the computer. I have more just havnt put them on the computer yet.






O yea and i almost forgot. Im getting my old rear springs back and im going to make a custom leaf back for the front. Going to use the rear main leaf and combine it with my front sky jacker lift leafs. Hoping to get bout 3 more inchs of height out of the front. Bring it back up to level or maybe a little more so it will settle level.

silver lake isn't fun with just 2wheel. I had to do that with my jeep after my build. It was better than not taking it thats for sure.... i just like messing around on the hills doing slow climbs.

Some idiots in one of the rental jeeps though they were better than me since they could get up a hill and i couldn't. I guess they failed to relize I had only 2wheel in the soft sand.

We'll have to get a mounds run together this summer though for sure.
