Touched up the frame behind where the natural gas tanks were. Shot some grease at it.

The pump is SO much stronger and the steering box is way tighter. Plus, the other pump had bearings that were going out, so less stress on the engine. Turns so much easier and doesn't wander all over the road.

Yet, my favorite part is the sound. I've dealt with that miserable whine for 8 years now and it's GONE!!



This had to have been the noisiest pump I've ever heard. The whine some people get while they're turning is the whine I had at idle when it wasn't doing anything. I couldn't post engine videos because you couldn't hear the engine, all you heard was WHIRRRRRRRRRRRRR. Then, it got about 20x worse when I did turn. My wife could tell when I was coming home because she could hear it out the window a half a mile away.

And now....it's quiet.
Stock pump and box? The saginaw is great hint hint

You that isn't anything exciting, all i did was drive it to the state fair and back. I git some nice potholes and almost got my buddy in the back to hit his head. It was fun.
I also snagged this awesome flag

Pulled it out of the garage. Cleaned up all the collected tool, parts, and trash that gathered in, on, under and around it...and then pushed it back in. Getting it ready for the motor.

I did pretty much the same except I had to clean around the Bronco because it is stuck in place with the front axle disassembled and sitting on jack stands. I found a half dozen sockets I have been missing in he driver side floor board, amazing what you find when you open the door once in a while. I might even get to turn a wrench on it again soon.

I threw some paint on the Zebra. Nothing exciting, just trying to hide the hack body job I did...

Haha that looks pretty close to mine I was tempted to string mine up on the tailgate of TGM but figured it wouldn't be worth it over all if it happened to rip and fly away. The good thing is, it was only $15 for a 3x5' flag.

As for me and TGM i look at it... Then my parents piled a bunch of old crap from our storage room out behind it with a free sign on it. Maybe i will do something someday..

This is what I did today



and shazaam!



I was planning on having it running tomorrow. But me and a friend are main witnesses in a car vs motorcycle accident and the MC driver just passed from his injuries. So we have to go to the police station and go over everything that happened. So not really looking forward for tomorrow.

The engine looks good. Going to the police station sucks.

I tried getting some locking wheel nuts off today without the special socket. Got one off but split two sockets in the process. Pulled the door lock cylinders off my parts bronco.

As sucks the guy died. Never a cool thing.

I drove TGM for the first time in 6 days. I fought to get it started but it started eventually.

You'll find 'em right after you have the carb back on it and completely tuned.
