Default crap i'm outta shape.

all this cold weather has kept me from working on the rigs...spent all day today at it and man am i sore. i'm sooooo outta wrenchin' shape. did manage to squeeze 3spd gears into a 4spd case, put a locker in the piggie, change the oil/filters in two rigs, start drilling a winch plate and even get some cleaning done in the garage. here are some pics from todays tranny fun. it was kinda gross.

I'm replacing my power steering pump and lines and I'm feeling my old age and my creaky knees.

My job for the day was replacing a leaky heater core.

What beautiful weather!

Ew...that t-case is gross.

I know what you mean about being sore after wrenching - until this broken pinion business I haven't had these large blocks of time with my hands on wrenches, and it's a weird feeling being sore because you were playing garage monkey instead of gym rat.

Good work, Ige!

Having pulled a trans and engine (separately) from one '87 Camry, and starting to do the same on another (for a heart transplant), I value 'cruisers even more.

On front-wheel drive stuff, it appears you have to remove every single front end component to work on anything big. I'll never make statements like 'gee, that wiring sure is in the way' about an FJ40 any more. I got to use the cherry picker I bought from Ige, so all was not lost, here.

I moved my new Longfields from the front porch to the garage...

I will get to that as soon as I build Dave's rocksliders. Next at bat after that, front axle rebuild with the Longs. On deck, rock glides for the fenders.

Yeah, sure, like they will get done. I figger my spare time is fully scheduled until CM!

hmm....weekend consisted of helping Ricardo and Rick with new shackle bushings, finish tearing parts off the pig, yanking the engine and tranny from the pig, hauling it up on Ige (Kevon's) trailer and taking the axles off and getting them wrestled into the garage, take pics and clean up parts, loosen all the shackle bolts on the 40 in preperation for the axle transplant, and work on remodeling my kitchen. Just a typical weekend in the Buchanan household.
