    I was thinking that the meeting was next Thursday, because I was not going to be able to make it. If it is this week, that would be great.

    So when is the meeting?
    3rd Thursday?

    I drove up to Papas one Thursday night in quite a hurry all excited to go see a bunch of cool cruisers and go through another round of defending the parts on my junk and much to my suprise the place was a ghost town. Guess I should check these things before I leave the house.

    You even had the lurkers confused you old coot. :D

    I have the brushguard in the back of the wagon, it will be there Thursday.

    Did Gary get with you about the S/M/L shirts? Let me know if we can take care of that then also.

    Finally, any truth to that swapping birfs from side to side is worthwhile, or is it a wives tale... repacking them Saturday and just curious. Thanks for any advice...

    If you need it: (C) 972-877-4367

    Thanks, Chris

    I will have all the tee's I have with me at the meeting, if you are talking about swapping sides on an 80 full time, I guess so but the inside snap ring can be brutal, if you don't know how to take the axle out, and you will need new ones cause you sacrifice them when you do it.

    Cool. We stripped one down Sunday in preperation for an axle swap under a Taco and it went smoothly. I figured I'd just put some tack welds down & forego the outer clip securing the joint to the axle. There is no inner clip on the inner axle,so that's good.

    So swapping them doens't really make a difference? I was told that swapping out the joints to the other side (Driver's to Passengers and vice-versa) will reverse the wear patterns and give you some more life from the joints. I hadn't heard that before, so I was just curious... I didn't see how it would make much (if any) difference...

    Thanks, Chris
