    As of right now, that is the plan, I believe.

    @SuperDuperCruizer is going to help me take the guts of my mini truck steering box and transplant them in to a 40 housing if anyone wants to see how that works. I assume Stump you have a bench vice.

    I've done a couple of these. Might want to put the Teflon ring on that piston and throw it in the freezer to make it easier to install the piston without nicking the Teflon ring. I also soften the sharp lip within the housing with some fine sandpaper to help keep the ring from getting nicked.

    Yeah, I would say so, but I'll let others say so. Birf seals are also very involved, as in, it requires pulling the hubs, axles and knuckles.

    I feel like those need a scan tool to bleed. I'll bring the Mastertech just in case.

    Show of hands... How many are planning on coming and what do you want to work on? Anyone have a couple spare 4x8 sheets of 3/4 plywood they can bring over? I was thinking I could use them to put down on the gravel to put the engine hoist on to pull the engine out of the parts 80.

    I'm planning on coming unless my son's Little League team wins on Thursday and makes it to the championship game on Saturday. I'm hoping to put a 40 power steering box back together.

    I'm coming, but I can't stay all day. Gotta finish re-framing the bedroom wall and install windows.

    Jack and I are coming in Rhea's 80: fix a brake light grounding issue, fix a door luck (might pull the lock out of your 80), fix an exhaust leak. Also picking up tires/wheels from Lex.
