Hey Dan,
Here is the link to the oil pan gasket post: http://www.capitallandcruiserclub.org/oilpan.pdf
Let me know what you think. I did not include any contact info. Wasn't sure if you wanted that posted on a web site.
I will create a link from the club website to the tech documents soon.

Looks good Ed. I can see some drafting errors that I made... You might want to invert the pic with the threads up, to show the way they install. Thanks, Dan

Patrick, I'd be very surprised if you'd find those SnapUps anywhere locally, I had to order mine online. I see that Summit Racing has them. String/zip works, but once you try the SnapUps, you'll see how much faster and easier it is.

Nice thread find TULAX17, definitely bookmark worthy.

Tech day - November 14

Following up on our discussion at this month's meeting, Stump has offered to host a tech day on November 14.

One task will be a front axle service on an 80. Ed offered to help with electrical issues.

Please post up if you are interested in participating.

My son James and I are interested. Time and location? We may not stay for the whole festivities but can lend a hand and learn. Brad

We fizzled on the Holiday party, so we should try and get either a tech day or a wheeling day scheduled because we have nothing on the short term calendar. I'm always happy to host a tech day at my place. Things are lonely here since the raffle truck left. Feb is pretty wide open for me. As far as wheeling goes, we should find get a snow run on the books even if it's only the clean up trail

During this month's meeting we discussed starting a thread for CLCC tech days. Does it make sense to assign this sticky status?

I think Steve mentioned he has a project to add spacers.

Just getting this started ...
I am eager to participate in a Capitol Land Cruiser Club Tech day.
The left and right exhaust manifolds need to be replaced on my 100 series.

Dealership quoted $2,300 for this repair and its just not an option for me.
Thanks to this site, I found a product that will increase my horsepower: Stainless Steel Shortie Headers, 2005-07 Land Cruiser 100-Series / Lexus LX470, 4.7L

Is this a project that is feasible at a CLCC tech day?
I can host at my property in NW DC, I have paved outdoor parking for 5-7 vehicles.

The passenger side manifold isn't too bad other than all of the hardware stripping. The driver's side is more of a pain. The engine has to be lifted a bit to make room to get the manifold out. You'll want to order a complete set of studs and nuts before hand. The Throrley headers are a pain to install. There's a pipe running directly in the way of almost every stud. It takes some creative tooling to get all of the nuts on.

So i have a huge list of things to work on my mini. But it would be interesting to do tech day on frames since I need to fix the cracked/rusted frame. I was planning on replacing from cab back with rectangular section steel.
