  • What is that? A 1'' spacer? Why are you even dicking with it. $17 you can have an aluminum one at your door by Friday.

      Phenolic ones cool 10X's better than aluminum ones.... If I have to I'll go that route but not yet

    Got the feed line in the mail yesterday just need to install it now.

    Also picked up some JB Weld for the carb spacer, hopefully it'll do the trick...

      Got the fuel inlet installed and fit nicely....

      Also filled in the spacer again w/ JB Weld this time......hopefully it works. It's the quick dry stuff but it has a higher psi rating than the other stuff....

      Starter on the Safari sides finally, got it all layer out & kinda figured out......lol!

        Cool. Can't wait to see what you come up with. I wish I could sew. I would attempt to make my own soft top.

          • Did the hydro put too much pressure on it and snap it off?

              Here's a couple links to all different types of rigs that say external stops are bad. Some talk about the internal stops.

              As far as how to do the stops it depends on the type of cylinder you have. Single ended or double. With a single you use a sleeve over the shaft (inside the cylinder) to limit travel then center your cylinder on it's mounts (or move the mount on tie rod) to get equal turn each direction. With a double ended you use a sleeve on both ends of the cylinder to limit travel. Google 'full hydro internal stops' and you'll get a ton of info. Same with 'full hydro remove steering stops'.

              OK, thanks AV8TER, I gotta get this figured out, might be miss alignment of the TRE's. I'm gonna pull the tires off and make sure everything is straight then go from there again.....

            Bought this little tool last night, worked pretty good....

            Got it ground down flat again so today after work I'll try & drill it again....

            Had the head mechanic helping me as well....pulling all the mud out of the radiator/tranny cooler/PS cooler! lol

                      Nice!! Have you found a way to speed up the wipers? Gear change? I'd like to know for future reference. As always, looking good Hoss.

                      Mine only has 2 speeds to begin with so when I wired it to a toggle I just wired the faster one & not the slower one... We'll see how it go's

                  • Should work great, but looks complicated with the "manifold"on the washer jugs. Why not just blue plastic jerry can for water?

                      That's what I said, just need to figure out how to plum it into the hood now, thinking about a coiled hose for the slack then zip tie the nozzles to the hood or find a way to attach them better...
