Are you trying to go land speed racing at Bonneville? 😁 That gearing should be good for 100mph.

Where’s that calculator we made a while back??? 🤔John JonesModeratorSeptember 8, 2022 at 12:58 pmPost count: 11223
I think it has a 3.88 with an .082 in it now.. and with the small tires on it.. I was hoping to be able to do 80 on the highway😎😎😎😎😎😎. And about 3000rpm👍🏻
Been outside since I cleared it, still looking good… no wash’s either👎👎👎👎👎👎.

I wish I had more motivation to work on this rig. I gotta get the trans out and serviced. Blaine is slowly putting me a case together… I need to work on the bumpers too… it’s the logical next project for me to get done.
No stale projects! 😎😎. Do work!!!! Then do some more!

ok.. time to stop being lazy… I gotta get this trans out of my bus so I can get Eddie to take it back to Painters with him…. Opportunity is knocking here.. 😎 Just what I need to get me rolling again… It’s hard to work on personal shit… It’s harder to get back going once I stop too… 😎 If I just start doing something everyday, I will be driving this rig in no time, just like my last project… 😎 😎 😎

Tore the trans down this morning.. it did not have a super diff in it… surprised.. axles and fulcrums looked good… the fluid STUNK… I bet I have some bearing failures in there… I’m gonna set this project aside till I have everything to put it back together mechanically…. I have a whole engine to build and a trans to get back also.. and no real dead line for this… its been a GREAT free air BnB for visitors…. and can continue to be!!!!😁😁😁😁. Especially now that it’s not hot out..😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎

Eddie already rebuilt my shit box!!! Bearings were all worn out!!! He said I must drive it alot… 😎 😎 😎 😎 😎 😎 😎
This time we went 3.88 with an .082! That should get us down the interstate with lower rpm’s..
I need to figure out how to get ahold of OMAR to pick it up for me at Painters this weekend…
Retired 😎 😎
