    I should easily make this run since Halloween night will on a monday... And carter has been asking to go back since I got my t-case replaced. So count me in. May even take the little guy out of school Friday and head down that day.

    I think I will get one of those pop ups again. That was pretty simple to put up and take down. Plus they have a heater in them, I just did not see it when we froze our asses off last time.

    I have an extra tow hook for ya. :p:

    Glad to see ya chime in here Chad. :thumbsup:

    I will just bring the big indoor kerosene heater along again. It worked great with a tarp over the tent, the last time it was a bit chilly out. Hard to even think about it being cold at night as hot as it has been around here for so long :crazy:

    I haven't gotten to do any wheeling all summer due to the ranger that is constantly breaking, if I can get more stuff fixed or it sold for something reliable I will try to be down there in something.

    Thats just SAD! Your 1st gen was awesome, Did you sell it? Hope you make it, really do!
    If Steve gets the parts to you, your pocketbook will be heavier. :D
    Then we will meet you there. :thumbsup:

    ok, ya guys.
    what are ya trying to say, that i'm slow or some thing :p:
    i got the parts gathered up, but it shows that you have the 4.o and i don't know how that is going to work out as the 4.0 has a 10 inch clutch and the 2.9 has an 8 3/4. maybe flywheel problems due to the weight of each other
    you need to ckeck the weight of the fly wheels :thumbsup:

    according to hollander interchange, i can use any clutch or flywheel from any 2.8, 2.9, or 4.0ohv, i have put a lot of research into my "frankentranny" project

    ok, hollander lied to me, i have to use a flywheel, clutch, and starter for the same engine, no mixing and matching. but it is common to run 4.0 flywheels on 2.9s over on TRS, so i dont see why i would have any problems doing the reverse
