Hi everyone! been going through a "dry" spell. Last year I had my cylinder heads rebuilt by Bills here in Phoenix. After the sixth time going back for leakage he epoxied the valve seats to the head! He also charged me $ 200 dollars more than originally stated. I had to get new heads from CB Performance There was another $1200. Got it up and running for a few weeks and my right rear wheel bearing went out. I determined that the bearing housing was out of round. Had to have a machine shop line bore the bearing housing out of my trailing arm. Foddrills had a new housing and I had the machine shop weld in the new housing. BTW they done a spectacular job totally impressed. Since I run a doubled taper roller bearing the center spacer has to be machined to achieve the proper bearing pre-load. My friend Dalton to the rescue! I gave him the amount that I needed machined off and he got it dead on the money! So now its all done and running. Today I drove my rail to work . Towards the end of the day it started to rain and I probably shouldn't have but I just drove out in the desert and played in the mud and splashed around for a bit. It reminded me why we do what we do! I really hope some of you also got to play in the rain!

Glad to see you back up an running. Missed you on this yeas 400 miler. I cashed into a tree on the road to the Haggler creek campground(missed a curve) Bent my front beam and had to bail from the run on Sunday,

Found a used beam in Reno NV for a price I couldn't pass up. I have family there and my grandson got the beam for me and I picked it up when I went up for his graduation.

Beam installed in car and I think the bad pull to the left is gone. Will find out if all is OK sometime this week when I take it back to the alignment shop.

Bet that got your heart racing! I'm heading out with Dalton this weekend, first off road trip with the new bearing housing. Going to head up castle hot springs road to constellation mine road and ( hopefully ) have lunch in Wickenburg, before heading back. Can't wait to see everyone this fall out on the trails!
