    As the title says I'll be doing some wrenching on friday. Got a loooooong list of things to do but I'll be starting with installing my electric fuel pump, reattaching the fuel lines, mounting the gas tank, going for a spin around the block so I feel like I have accomplished something, drinking some beer, and then either trying to get the roof welded back on or finishing up my spare tire carrier. If anyone want to come hang out or wrench I'll be starting nice and early bout 7-730. I know this interferes with work and classes but just thought I'd offer it up if anyone was able.

    Nope like I said in the other thread where your leaking is supposed to be a pain in the arse so I just swapped 3rd members. But if you want to give it a go I'll be at the house working you can come by and I'll help any way I can.

    yeah I thought is was a PITA too...... but it seems like Capt. was saying it wasn't all that involved if you were just trying to replace the seal........I am sure he will chime in here before long.

    He rudi, you want to help for a little bit friday??? you know return the favor of all those hours I helped you............ I need some one to hold those tube fenders while I measure them up and eventyually tack weld them

    Yeah I believe my plan in to yank my radiator on friday day and get it fixed in seneca. Then I will either yank the pinion out friday afternoon or saturday, gotta find some time to run to Alan's place and pick up the seal. Also gotta reweld my muffler brace, and need to order the inards for my e brake.
