Can't be that hard. A day in the garage. Lots to remove, but a good time to replace all the gaskets and seals on the front, top, and side of the motor and stop them leaks.


Let's see.... One day to do all that?

How many days to put an engine in, lift on, repaint, install a nifty gas can holder on the back, and a few miscellaneous other items?

Lift............................... 1 day (Just did this a few weeks ago)
Install engine............... 1 day (It's a tractor motor, what could be hard about that?)
Nifty gas can holder...... 1 week (OK, it is fab work and it looks great)
Repaint........................ 3 hrs and a case of Krylon flat black

He'll need another day or two to bolt in the seats and a steering wheel. Should be ready to go by mid-May.

You guys make me feel so warm and fuzzy. Lift is done, and it took me much more than a day to do that spring over and shackle reversal. The gas can holder is done, and yep took about a week. The rest ... I'll get right on it. :beer:

In Jon's defense. It took Ali, my dad, and I about three hours to replace A bolt in the seat frame of the 40.








But now the seat is as strong as my ARB :D

Rory,

We only have TWO rules in HDC.

#1 Rule. Never side with Greg on anything. Nothing. Nada. Zippo. Nothing.

#2 Rule. Sucking up to Jon is a waste of time. Jon is nice to everyone even if you don't kiss his butt like you just did.

#3 Rule. Do not read O'Niell's posts. Trying to read any post by David will make your eyes bleed.

#4 Rule. Try not to make Dan mad by teasing him about the ugly color of his truck. We all know that 6M1 is grotesque but he is a little sensitive about it. He also controls access to all Toyota parts so it is not in your best interest to agitate the guy in the tie-dyed shirt. However, it is perfectly acceptable to tease Onur about the color of his truck.

#5 Rule. Do not pick a fight with Shawn. If you do pick a fight with Shawn, resist the urge to invite him outside to settle it.

#6 Rule. Man up. (Not really a rule, just a suggestion. Don't take it personal though.)

#7 Rule. Do not talk down about FJ Cruisers. They are dead set on assimilating us and I heard someone mention at the last meeting that everyone will be required to own at least ONE FJ Cruiser to be a member of HDC. There is a conspiracy in our midst, I am certain of it and my Momma always said: "Where there's smoke, there is a conspiracy."

#8 Rule. Disregard rules 2-6. Rules #7 and #1 are the TWO real rules in HDC.

( ... to be continued ... )



Is it Wednesday yet?

Is this rule similar to the upcoming requirement that each vehicle be 2M equipt?

Gee, when I started this rule involved FZJ80's, not FJC's.
