I thought I'd just go ahead and reseal the old gearbox and... well... not just one, but BOTH of the eyes were broken off of this snap ring. Ain't no way in hell that sonofabitch is coming out of there. I've already marred things up pretty well trying, so it may be time to accept defeat.
My plan was to just throw some new seals in this nasty old thing, but there’s a *decent* amount of play in the sector shaft.
This popped up on the local FaceSpace Marketbook. 1970, 4x4, 390/4-speed. $2,500. Paint and body look decent and it might shine up nicely with mild patina. Engine needs a bath and some new seals, interior needs carpet, seat upholstery and door panels. Someone also hogged out the radio opening to accept a DIN stereo,…
The picture is of a 1962-1964 Studebaker 259/289 2bbl engine. I’ve seen plenty of these engines in my lifetime. It sticks out like a sore thumb when I see it.
I’m wanting to try my hand at making some YooToob car-related content. I’ve got a GoPro, a DSLR that’ll shoot video and some extremely basic knowledge on editing. But, I’m concerned about my lack of a microphone. I’d like some sort of clip-on wireless type doohickey, but I’m totally clueless about what’s compatible,…
I’m planning to cross off Wyoming and Montana this summer. Hawaii, Alaska, Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts are high on the list, but who knows when I’ll get there.

Seent in the church parking lot this morning.
Granted, there are zero details on thr truck, so maybe it’s an ultra-low-mile creampuff... but even then...
The world list an inventor, innovator and hot rodder today. I got to know Ken Austin a few years ago through my in-laws who worked as his caretaker for a few years. To say he was a driven man would be an understatement.
$6k for a 4.0/6-speed TJ is NP any day, assuming it’s not rusted in half!
1955 Packard Patrician!
Measure 3-547 claims an added cost of less than $10/mo for the “average” homeowner in Lake Oswego factored at $1.64 per $1,000 of property value puts the average home value of Lake Oswego at approximately $73,000.
I’m not sure if anyone on Oppo appreciates these, since no one ever posts about them. Bonus double 244s in the background!
The church where me and Mrs. T got hitched. It’s shown as the trio are driving through Bagdad, FL.
Spicy. M F’n. Ketchup.
I love my job. I get to do lots of cool stuff with cool stuff in cool places. I’m generally very happy at work and a team player.
