Re: Bench Racing for a new Wheeler

Re: Sanderson Heaers

quick question or two...

do they hit the block portion of the bellhousing or down by the inspection cover? I know on most the S10 V8 swap headers you have to cut the "ears" off the automatic transmissions to make the headers fit.

Got pics of your fitment issue?

Shop building

So I might need to push up my schedule for a shop. Trying to find a good builder for a stick built shop in the 24x24 range and finished out to match our house. Just needs power roughed in and all dried in. Anyone have a recommended guy? Looking to build in spring if I can.

Re: Smitty XRC8 winch. FREE to PP member

You drove a hard bargain Dave. I almost had to call the boss to approve the purchase.

BTW parts are on order and should be here mid week. I am not sure I came out ahead as this is the worst grease I have ever dealt with. almost have it all cleaned out to repack and assemble when the parts get in.

Re: Washington backcountry discovery route.

south to north. I think getting farther north you have more exit options if you run short on time. Or if you get north early it would be a nice place to chill for a bit.
