Wrench Party V2

I'd like to throw together a wrench party for sometime in June or July to replace my failing torque converter..

I know everyone is busy this time of year, but once I get the replacement I have 30 days to get the old one back to them for the core charge..

I haven't changed a tc before, but I'm thinking it shouldn't be too big a deal right? Now that we can fit under the truck that is..

Let me know what might work best for you guys> 6/20, 6/27, 7/11, 7/18,

Hmmmm.....I know you're in a hurry, and I hate to be the guy to put the brakes on a project, but I just got off the phone with Dave and the earliest either one of us has is 7/18. However, we do both have that day open and it's yours if you want it.

I wouldn't mess with the stall speed. Some of the hot rod guys do that, but I think it would make it pretty notchy on the street.

It's not that big of a hurry, I just need to time the order right in order to get the core back to them.

We also need a summer gtg before everyone gets too busy, It looks like maybe 7/18 may be the 1st time available for that..
lets hold off and see what everyone else wants to do

btw.. I also ordered a triple pillar, pyro guage, a tapped aih fitting, and some o-rings for the xover line from Rifraff the other day..
I'll be piddling with this stuff as time permits

Let me know when you get the o-rings and I'll bring that crossover line over.

Sorry we can't do it any earlier Joe but I have so much stuff going on right now I barely have time to get on here. We can do it down at my dad's shop it will be alot easier that way, maybe you can drop the truck off the night before so it will be cool in the morning to work on.

You guys had me totally surprised.

To those not in the know, my wife had conspired with Scott and Dave to
order the torque converter for my father's day present.

In fact the 18th isn't available to them at all, the just set that date to keep me from ordering it myself.

The GTG will be 7/11, most likely at Dave Sr.'s, pending approval from him.
