Wow, what a busy weekend.
Sascha started his H55F install into his FJ60 Friday evening and finished it up Saturday night. He did it almost all by himself and it went very smoothly.
Mark converted his V6 ARB diff to HP with the same ARB, and installed new 5.29 gears into this diff and a second diff with a detroit locker. He is now a journeyman gear installer, start making your reservations now for gear changes!

73COCruiser - FJ40 w/ V8 tuning-Evan-thanks for helping everyone out for the day, glad we were able to diagnose your engine noise as just and old fuel pump that needs removed. You certainly win the prize for the hardiest participant driving your topless 40 down on a very cool day. We hope to see you again at more events.
It seems like there were a few more rigs we did carb adjustments on, timing checks, etc but it all starts to blur together.................
Overall it was a lot of fun and a lot of hard work. Thanks to the club for buying the pizza & soda. Thanks to all who provided the brewski's.
Going forward WE NEED HELP! We REALLY need the rest of you Rising Sun gearheads to come out to the shop and help mentor the new folks through their maintenance and repairs. You don't need to be an expert, just someone who is handy with a wrench, has a little experience and wants to help out.
