the plan is dscussed better over at the club forum. Its all kinda in the air and depends on weather. sat or sunday (whichever is better) we gotta hit the junkyard. other than that we are doing some local wheeling and such

I'm very disappointed that we didn't get a theatrical revision of the "It's aliiiiiiive" scene from Young Frankenstein :p: But it's running! And maybe even moving soon! And then... and then maybe it'll even be four wheelable!!


YAYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!! :bounce: I'm proud of you and it's not even my truck, lol.

Yea i know im a camera whore, but i wanted to run it around for a bit to make sure nothing fell off. figured i might as well have some fun while at it. i was pulling over periodically yo make sure everything was ok anyway.

found one leak, coming from the right side of the trans pan, checked the bolts and were able to re tourque all of them so im hoping thats it.
one thing i did notice is that theres 2 caps on the right side of the of the trans. i should know what they are, but to be honest, i dont. (only trans ive ever rebuilt was a A0D and i dont recall it having them) the trans that used to be in the truck apeared to have silicone gasket stuff around them, this one does not. is that suposed to be there?

also fixed the low oil warning light, wasnt doin its self check when starting

i want to run a snorkle while i have the whole front end apart, rather than take the right side off again, so i think that and putin all the body work back oon is gonna be next weeks project

:chug:

So hows that working out for ya? Looks like you lost the grille, hood, both fenders, bumper....

:D

The covers are for servo's I believe. Though I dont acually know what the servos are, I know the one for low/reverse is inside in the vb, maybe those are for 2-3 3-4 gears?

What the hell...?! Are you sure the city didn't remove it for being an untitled, unregistered eye sore? Not trying to be mean or anything. I've gotten threats from neighbors who wanted to destroy Tank and complained to the township about "the big ugly truck" in their parking lot :rolleyes:

Who on earth would want to steal a completely stripped Explorer that doesn't even run?
