    Finished the carrier for the 2 scepter gas cans. Mounts to the rear where the towing ball use to be.

    Dash pad bracket only had a few spot welds holding it. So I tacked it back up.

    Had two barbs brake on my separator. Picked up a couple of brass barbs at the hrdwr. store. I cut the old plast 004.JPG 005.JPG ic barbs off with a razor knife then CAREFULLY drilled out the holes,and threaded the barbs into the plastic. I ran a bead of JB Weld around the threads . I'm happy with the way it turned out.

    I hope to remember this the next time I see someone looking for a separater because of broken nipples. And I hope you will update how this holds up.

    Did some last minute checks for my upcoming trip to DV. Found both my rear motor mounts were just starting to loosen up (if you can rotate the puck with a firm grasp, it’s still loose)

    99% of the time when a front mount breaks, it’s because the rears were not tight enough. The other one percent: sudden impact!:eek: 07A304DE-8F21-429F-9A12-6507FCBE34BA.jpeg

    I took it for a legit shakedown run now that the turbo is complete. Was only seeing 6lbs of boost it should be at least 10lbs. The driving vidfeo was choppy so i just attached a video for sounds haha.

    Still just downpipe on it no exhaust. Ill get to that sometime...

    Then while changing the body mounts I noticed that the fuel pump was starting to leak out the weep holes. So today i got a nice gift from City Racer.

    Machined an adaptor for my single barrel carb so I can use the air cleaner I obtained. Might keep looking for the right year, but this way I can swap carbs if need be.

    No pics, but I picked up my clutch and pressure plate today. My clutch is complete! It cost me about $250 between O'reillys and NAPA and now I can connect my 6.0 to the sm465.

    Spring bushings were slightly overdue for a change. Along with leaf packs fresher than mine, new OEM shocks, got an inch lift and a vastly improved ride.
