    After reading this thread I feel like you need an intervention......... I’ll be the ahole and point out the elephant in the room that a couple of posters have eleuded to. You need to understand you are dumping and will be continuing to dump a PILEof money into what looks like a home built chassis. That chassis is not worthy of an LS. You still have a torsion housing from a VW in that chassis right? You’re building a lopsided car. Cut your loses, salvage the parts you can and search the for sale adds for a good quality chassis built by a reputable builder with tried and true correct chassis geometry, appropriate sized tubing with good triangulation. Of course resale value can also be a factor. I know you are hindered by your location but don’t let that stop you from haveing a property built car that will provide you and your family with as safe as possible experience that will take you out in the dunes so you can enjoy the time you have running the car rather than wishing you had done it right looking at your family sitting in lawn chairs while you work in vain trying to cobble some morphodite car back together in an attempt for at least one decent ride. Sorry, not trying to discourage you but we all want you to succeed in your quest for a good car, not become bitter and hate the predicament you get yourself into and disappoint yourself and your family. There have been many cars for sale that are in various states of disassembly for a great price on here. I don’t know what he is currently getting for a chassis but Jesse at JP Designs sells a very good car for a great price and will sell it in about any stage you want to buy it. If my post offends you I’m sorry that’s not my intent just ignore it and I won’t respond again.

    https://townhall.com/columnists/kurtschlichter/2019/05/02/be-a-rooftop-korean-n2545651 Be A Rooftop Korean The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not represent the views of Townhall.com. Source: AP Photo/Reed Saxon We should all be ready to do our duty as American citizens and, when duty calls, each of us should embrace our inner Rooftop Korean. The year was 1992, 27 years ago right about now, and the city was Los Angeles. Several police officers who got into a videotaped brawl with a petty criminal named Rodney King were acquitted of beating him up. The city exploded. It was chaos. I was a first-year law student, back a year from the Gulf War, and I had just joined the California Army National Guard. My unit was the 3rd Battalion, 160th Infantry, and we got called up early the first night and were on the streets for three long weeks. Making it even more delightful was the fact that the unit was in Inglewood, which was pretty much on fire. They burned most everything around, except our armory – that would have gone badly for them – and the Astro Burger. My battalion commander grabbed then-First Lieutenant Schlichter, and we went all over the city in his humvee as he led his deployed and dispersed troops. Our soldiers came, in large part, from the areas most effected by the riots, and they were notably unpleasant to the thugs and criminals who quickly discovered our guys had no patience for nonsense. One dummy discovered that the hard way when he tried to run over some Guard soldiers from another battalion; he had a closed casket funeral. The city went insane. Order simply ceased to exist. It was Lord of the Flies. I remember a cop totally breaking down because everything was completely out of control. But I had a M16A1 – a real assault rifle – and I had a bunch of buddies with M16A1s. The regular folks … not so much. The decent people of LA were terrified, and with good reason. See, the dirty little secret of civilization is that it’s designed to maintain order when 99.9% of folks are orderly. But, say, if just 2% of folks stop playing by the rules…uh oh. Say LA’s population was 15 million in 1992…that’s 300,000 bad guys. There were maybe 20,000 cops in all the area agencies then, plus 20,000 National Guard soldiers and airman, plus another 10,000 active soldiers and Marines the feds brought in. Law enforcement is based on the concept that most people will behave and that the crooks will be overwhelmed by sheer numbers of officers. But in the LA riots, law enforcement was massively outnumbered. Imposing order took time. And until then, our citizens were on their own, at the mercy of the mob. Betting that the cavalry was going to come save you was a losing bet. LA’s Korean shopkeepers knew that. They operated many small businesses in some of the least fashionable areas of Los Angeles, and they were already widely hated by activists, being scapegoated for problems and pathologies that long pre-dated their immigration to Southern California. So, they became targets for the mobs. Bad decision by the mobs. See, most of these Koreans had done their mandatory service in the Republic of Korea’s Army. Those ROK soldiers are the real deal – the Norks are not a theoretical threat and the South Korean army does not spend a lot of time talking about feelings. They were some solid dudes. So, when the local dirtbags showed up for some casual looting, they noticed the rooftops were lined with hardcore guys packing some serious heat, including the kind of scary rifles that the Democrats want to ban. The Rooftop Koreans. It did not take long for the bad guys to realize that the Rooftop Koreans were not playing games – they were playing for keeps. The mob went away in search of softer targets. There’s a lesson there. Our first responders are awesome, but it takes nothing away from their heroism to point out that the title “first responder” is a misnomer. The citizens on site are the first responders. And they should be ready to respond. We all should. Personally. Some duties of citizen should never be outsourced. If you are an able-bodied adult, it’s your duty to know how to stop the bleeding and give CPR until the pros who do it for a living arrive. And it’s your duty (and right) to defend yourself, your family, your community and your Constitution. With guns – effective guns, which sometimes means your concealed pistol and sometimes means the guns that those who want you defenseless call “assault weapons.” Ban them? We should insist non-felon adult, able-bodied citizens own them and become proficient with them because all that law and order you see around you can disappear in a heartbeat. I watched it happen up close and personal, in one of America’s biggest cities. And as the Rooftop Koreans recognized, groups of citizens with (preferably) semi-auto rifles with 30-rounds mag is the only thing that is going to keep a mob in check. It’s your duty to be prepared to defend our community. Your duty. Yes, being a citizen of a free country is sometimes hard. Too bad. Tighten up and be ready and able to pick up a weapon. Whether it’s a riots and disaster, or whether it’s some scumbag who decides to shoot up your house of worship or a shopping mall, it’s on you. You have a job to do when chaos comes – no shirking your responsibility and outsourcing it to the local police or the Army. Being a citizen is not a spectator sport. Now, the left does not see things that way. The mere idea of a good guy with a gun makes them wet themselves. The left hates the notion that we citizens might take personal ownership of, and responsibility for, the security of our own country – that we might act like citizens. See, citizens are unruly. Stubborn. Uppity. We’re hard to control at the best of times. Armed, 300 million of us are impossible to control, unless we consent to it. Now, the Founders, who enshrined the natural right of free men to keep and bear arms in our Bill of Rights preceded only by the rights of free speech and freedom of religion, knew this. To them, an armed citizenry that is prepared, mentally and logistically, to respond to threats to the people is a feature. To the liberal elite, it is a bug. The elite wants serfs, not citizens. It recognizes the threat in our possession of modern weaponry. But it’s not a threat of us causing evil but of us quelling it. An armed people is a free people, and a free people demands its rights and its say in its own governance. Liberals talk about “gun control,” but what the really want is total control. Of us. There are two models to which Americans can aspire. One is to be citizens, armed and sovereign. The other is to be serfs, disarmed and obedient to their liberal elite overlords. Choose wisely. Choose to be a Rooftop Korean.

    My employee Brian is having the time of his life with only $4000 invested. He can hang with any CanAm turbo RS. he's running a Subaru 2.2 motor he built himself, 14psi and making 270 HP no intercooler, e85 tuning his own car!. look good at the pics, exhaust flapper, bump stops hitting the brake line, bending bars to make sure the steering shaft clears, custom arm slot as his mid rail bar was too high, but the best part is seeing the smile on his face. I'm like that was me 35 some odd years ago!

    Every once in a while something cool happens. This is my first bike...a 1970 Yamaha 125 Enduro that my Dad bought me when I was 11. It is one of the biggest parts of my history. This bike started the love of motorcycles for me that still is strong to this day! When he came home with it, I slept in the garage with it for 3 days and I could not touch the ground! I got my permit at fifteen and a half and rode it to school every day until I got a car! i got into so much trouble on this thing! One day when I was still in high school and friend of mine and I hopped on this thing and rode to the local Circle K during a break to buy a couple of Cokes. When we got back he dared me to ride my bike through the halls at school...during school...and I said...OK! Needless to say i got busted and sent home...but I did it and doing wheelies too! 🤣 It has 3600 original miles and i put every one of them on it! It's been in storage and has not seen the light of day for almost 40 years and last night it came home! The last time it was registered was 1977...when I graduated high school! To be honest...I thought it was lost a long time ago! Looking at it brings back every good memory I had on it and i could not be happier! Having my fist bike parked next to my latest bike is a pretty big thrill!! Not sure what I plan on doing yet...restore it...or not restore it...not sure. I just love it's back in my hands where it will be loved again!!

    Perfect Hiding Place Press Secretary, Sarah Sanders, is possibly one of the brightest people in the current administration. She also has a quick wit about her and if you doubt it then read below. It's got to be the answer of the year. During a recent press conference, a reporter with MSNBC hollered from the press corps, "Where is President Trump hiding his tax returns? Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, astutely responded, "We've found a very secure place and I'm certain they won't be found. "And just where is that?", said the reporter, sarcastically. Mrs. Sanders grinned sardonically and said, "They are underneath Obama’s college records, his passport application, his immigration status as a student, his funding sources to pay for college, his college records, and his Selective Service registration.

    Jesus, I just caught up. My money is on that the cv's will be the least of your issues with this. As the old saying goes... "Dont throw good money after bad." I am having flashback to the guys that put 50k worth of upgrades into a rhino 660. Dont be the 50k rhino 660 guy.

    Jonesin I feel like you are all kinds of lost. If you have measured your car and feel that a standard old model 2d will fit then just pick any off the options Jalper suggested and you will be fine. As for 934's, there is absolutely no need to run 934's on a 2d trans IMHO. You will want a weak link and you don't want that to be your trans. A properly set up car can run 930's no problem for a long time with the right driving style. My suggestion is to do more homework and you will save tons of money and head ache.

    The new owner called and said the car needed a rear main seal. I picked one up from CBM and he dropped the car off the next day. 20190410_121158.mp4 As soon as I got the engine out I saw it wasn't the rear main seal, it was the input shaft seals, again. I called @SEAN@WEDDLE and asked his opinion about why this happened again. I'll let him post his thoughts, but one thing he mentioned was possibly a bad pilot bearing. I ordered two new seals, new throw out bearing and a new pilot bearing and the parts showed up the next day. The pilot bearing looked hammered. That's when I recalled having issues installing this engine the last time I worked on it. It just wouldn't go in. I never really looked at the pilot bearing the last time I had the engine out but now that I was checking it out something wasn't right so I called @SEAN@WEDDLE again to discuss it. Sean quickly realized this engine had the wrong pilot bearing and shipped me the correct one. In the meantime, I had to get this one out. I bought a pilot bearing puller from O'Rilieys but it was too big. I modified it a little to fit but the pilot bearing wasn't coming out easily. I put a torch on it and it finally broke loose but broke apart. The correct one on the right, similar to the one @travelah has. The clutch and pressure plate were wasted so I ordered up a new set from @CBM Lots of built up material from the leak. Took a while to get it cleaned up. Correct pilot bearing installed. New seals and throw out bearing Engine is back in the car. Fired it up, adjusted the clutch pedal free play and it was ready to go. I say it all the time in threads similar to this one- make a phone call. What engine oil should I use- call the engine builder. What differential fluid should I use- call the trans builder. I've been doing this a long time and I still pick up the phone to ask what may be a stupid question, but I ask regardless. I'm really flad I called @SEAN@WEDDLE when I couldn't figure out what was wrong. Sean can attest that he and I have spent a lot of time on the phone and through email about not only about clients cars but my personal car as well.

    Maybe Yarder should do some "research" at a few of the "Gentlemans" clubs. Find the best ones in all the local clubs and see who she had as a doctor. It might take a while to do thorough research...

    https://thehill.com/policy/defense/442401-trump-pardons-ex-soldier-convicted-of-killing-iraqi-prisoner “President Trump on Monday signed an executive grant of clemency, a full pardon, to a former Army first lieutenant convicted of murdering an Iraqi prisoner. The White House released a statement announcing Trump's decision to pardon Michael Behenna, who was sentenced in 2009 to 15 years for shooting and killing Ali Mansur Mohamed. The move comes after repeated requests from Oklahoma's attorney general for Trump to pardon Behenna. "Mr. Behenna’s case has attracted broad support from the military, Oklahoma elected officials, and the public," the White House said, noting that more than two dozen generals and admirals as well as numerous Oklahoma officials have expressed support for Behenna, who hails from the state. The statement added that Behenna has been "a model prisoner." "In light of these facts, Mr. Behenna is entirely deserving of this Grant of Executive Clemency," the statement read. Prosecutors argued Behenna shot and killed Mansur, an alleged al Qaeda operative, in the desert in 2008 in retaliation for an improvised explosive device (IED) attack. Mansur had previously been ordered released because of a lack of evidence of his connection to the terrorist group, and Behenna reportedly killed him while returning him to his hometown after attempting to question him about the IED attack. Behenna was paroled in 2014 and was to remain on parole until 2024 prior to the pardon. Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter (R) recently petitioned the Trump administration to pardon the Oklahoma native, writing to Attorney General William Barr in April that Behenna was convicted because of improper jury instructions and because prosecutors did not turn over evidence bolstering his claim of self-defense. Hunter had previously petitioned for the pardon in February 2018. “I commend President Trump’s decision to grant a full pardon for Mr. Behenna,” Hunter said in a statement Monday evening. “Mr. Behenna served his country with distinction, honor and sacrifice. He has admitted to his mistakes, has learned from them and deserves to move on from this incident without living under its cloud for the rest of his life." "My hope is that Michael and the rest of his family can rest easy this evening knowing they can put this tragic situation behind them."

    Man you have taken a beating in this thread and kept on going, good for you. Everyone of us who have made mistakes on our own projects hate to see what we think is the same thing happening to someone else. I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say that every single person that has posted wants you to have a good experience so you will enjoy your time in the sand rather than have a bad taste in your mouth from your build and end up like many who finally throw in the towel and walk away.

    Yeah so I have huge garden i'm making for my wife 64 X64' fenced, chicken coop, etc. Its now secured by fencing all around and its time to clean it up from weeds etc so I decided to borrow a few goats from my neighbor. She has 4 of them. she has one that I heard is antagonistic towards human males. he's big. so I go into the corral to get two of them but not the big white one, but I keep an eye on him. I'm not liking the movements of him and he seems to protect the others. I really don't care to get close to him as i'm not really a farm boy and have no idea of what they can do, like chew my hands off HAHA. but the owner says no problem there they only have 1/2 a set of teeth. OKaaaaay. I have nothing with me in the corral. all of a sudden this thing charged me from 15 feet away (I wasn't looking at him for just a moment) and knocked me so hard in the hip that I flew against the fence. it hit me broadside in the left hip. I get up and stagger for balance and he backs up to do it again. I'm like no way, im ready to jump the fence. no way could I handle a hit like that in the nuts. so i'm like 40 feet from the exit. I quickly start making my way over there and this thing is unhinged. it comes at me again and I kick it in the face as hard as I can. again and again. now its really getting mad. I barley get out of there. The owner says she'll help and goes in there. it charges at her and knocks her to the fence. first time, so she whacks him on the head. now I know why I work on cars for a living. later that day when I return the trailer is was talking to here and I said I need to bring in a 2X2. she said I could use a 2X4 i'm like really? I would prefer a metal bat the next time and I will leave no prisoners! BTW did I tell you all i'm getting my left hip replaced on may 9th! now the doctors going to be like "dude you really need this hip, its already bruising" LOL

    This is written by a friend of mine Eddy Justice; Red Flag Laws are a Giant Red Flag By Eddy Justice I am an unabashed believer in our Constitutional rights. When the Founding Fathers enshrined gun ownership as a right of American citizens in the Constitution, they knew what they were doing. They were so adamant on the right to bear arms that they declared that this right “shall not be infringed”. Let me be clear: firearm ownership is a right afforded to every American, and that right should not be obstructed without due process. I believe it is important to recognize that a law-abiding individual has a right to own a gun free from government surveillance and interference. I understand why folks would want to make sure firearms do not fall into the hands of dangerous individuals, we all want to protect our communities and families--but we cannot do it at the cost of our freedom. Gun ownership is as important as right as the right to a fair trial, freedom of speech, and freedom of faith. Gun rights cannot and should not be forfeited without clear, strict, and narrow set of rules that respect due process and are enforced clearly and consistently. At present, there is talk floating around the Missouri capitol to implement Red Flag laws right here in Missouri. Red Flag laws do not meet the definition of fair due process of depriving someone of a firearm, it’s government run amok. Currently, a lot of coast-states have Red Flag laws. These laws allow the state government to forcefully seize a person’s firearm if they receive a complaint from someone stating that person poses behavior that implies they could be dangerous. It is a law designed for friends and family members to signal to the government that someone they know should not own a firearm because they could pose a threat, then in comes the sheriff or the police to suspend that person’s constitutional right to own a firearm, taking away their gun, and holding it until the person is no longer viewed as a threat by the government. And That’s it. No due process, no trial, no conviction. Just a tip off to the government that so-and-so should not have a gun, and then it is taken. That is not how rights work, that is not how liberty works. Our rights can only be forfeited if we committed a crime and are found guilty by a jury of our peers, not because Neighbor A does not want Neighbor B to own a gun. Red Flag laws should be a giant red flag to everyone in our state that radical liberals are trying to make it easier for the government to take away our firearms. It gives government too much power, it curtails our rights and ignores the Constitution. It creates a subjective measure of who should and should not own a gun and then strips away a person’s rights for a “future crime” they might commit. Any Missourian with even cursory knowledge of the Constitution can tell you that an American can not be punished, imprisoned, or forfeit their freedom until they commit a crime. We cannot allow these radicals to dictate who can and cannot own a firearm. I for one will join with responsible firearm owners and freedom-loving Missourians to stand our ground against Red Flag laws or any such law that would deprive Missourians of their liberty without due process. Eddy Justice is a state senate candidate for Senate District 25 comprised of Butler, Carter, Dunklin, Mississippi, New Madrid, Pemiscot, Shannon, and Stoddard Counties.

    This shows that President Trump has serious balls and stands by his MAGA pledge. This was war and the terrorist deserved to die. Trump did what many other presidents would not have done. Compare this to the low lifes that Obama pardoned.

    Perfect example of why the Second amendment is needed. I remember going to the gun range at the Long Beach police academy with a friend who was going for target practice. The place was full of Koreans practicing with their shiny new weapons. Needless to say the range was not a safe place that week but the roads were 😂
