Were bringing the HAMOM (Help A Member Of the Month) back to life! :bounce: Since Chuck is holding one in May and I just had one its obvious the interest is still there and plenty of us need help. So starting with Chuck in May the HAMOM is back. Everyone who wants a chance to host a HAMOM and have a bunch of us come wrench on your cruiser and help you out post up asap. I will give you all 1 week to post up, next weekend I'll draw names from everyone who posts and assign months, I'll be assigning 2 or 3 months right off so if you dont get in by this weekend you'll have a chance for later. Stipulations to the HAMOM go something like this, as host you will provide some beverages and a lunch/dinner for all those wrenching after some good hard work, ususally just some sitting by the grill with a few burgers or something like that. We also ask that since you have a couple months to get ready that you be prepared with everything you think will be needed. Oh and you have to actually do work,:doh: the point is to get help not to get a bunch of other people to do everything for you. Lastly everyone should have fun and try to learn from whats being done. Outside of that there isnt much to it just some good wrenching and fellowship around the cruiser. So everyone toss your name in the hat.

I would like to get on the list to put a 4 speed in the pig. However, I have no idea what I need to do this. I also have no idea how to do it. So I'll need help with a parts list. Oh, and since I am in ATL, I will also provide my entire house as a flop house for those that reach step 6 as quickly and aggressively as Dan does.

Heather start a thread when it gets closer and we'll help you figure out all that you need. If all you want to do is swap your 3 speed for a 4 then all you need is a tranny and a couple gaskets pretty straightforward. We'll help you out no worries.

Maybe we can do two 4sp swaps?

Dan, I am sure we can have a mini ATL HAMOM here. Pick a date and I'll be there, I know that Rick, Sylvain, Steen, etc. will all try to be there if you need help.

Brake Job on a 62

I feel greedy, because all my cruisers are running, but I'll ask anyway. I would like a HAMOM to do a brake job on my 62. I would like to do the 4Runner caliper conversion, new rotors, and new brake pads. I wouldn't ask you guys to come all the way to Weaverville, but I would drive down to Alan's or David's or . . . .

I would need to know which calipers work best, rotors, and pads, and I don't have a bleeder (except my fingers on any project).

hmm, does that mean I have to come up with something for Sept? I think I fixed everything I was whining about already :)

I am sure something else will come up by then!
