  1. I believe the trailing arms were built by Desert Dynamics because they came off a DD sand car I have, but not for sure. They are of good quality at least. The spindles are from Kartek I am selling them because the brake tabs are welded to them already.

  3. Hay Ray how's thing going hopefully good give me a call some time.
  4. I heard that Ray at Desertrat buggies has opened his doors back up. I hope this is true, I have been out of touch with him for a few years. If so I guess I will finally start to build a new car with sequential gearbox and bigger motor.
  5. As I was reading that is what I was going to ask you to check because I have seen it happen a lot you only know by the color of the wire I am glad you found the problem
  6. All fuel cells that come with foam from the beginning have left over foam from when they cut it or stuff it in through the hole on my drag car I had to pull the filter apart at least three times to unplug it from foam metal or plastic shavings, I also would know when it was plug because of the erratic fuel pressure on my gauge and not wanting to pull all the way to 7200. hope this helps
  7. I put the hole in it to keep an air pocket from building up there since it dead ends.
  8. I looked at your thread BINGENKAOS and i am sure its backwards. Im trying to understand what the symptoms/effects would be. Also, I saw a pic from CBM with the freezeplug and 1/4" hole and would like to understand that as well. It only blocks off the waterpumps bypass right? so the system itself is still free flowing? Thanks You and rest are right the lines need to be reversed and definately install the freeze plug with the 1/4 in. hole otherwise the water will bypass the radiator and majority of it will just keep circulating through the engine.
  9. If you haven't already I'd recommend getting a piece of metric all thread with some nuts and washers to reinstall the balancer. I've heard too many horror stories of dudes wiping out the threads in the end of the crank trying to install it with the bolt. Motor deal fell through at 10pm the night before we planned on leaving. With about 20 hours of prep time removing interferences and loading tools in the trailer, I was operating in the RED. Luckily I found a pullout LQ4 from a place in Yuma so no issues swapping all my accessories over. Once we.get to Gordons this afternoon, ill pull the.longblock out and drop the replacement in. Add fluids, connect electrical, and hit the dunes. Hi Norm, John here hay if the crank bolt is 12 pointed it is not a streach to yeild bolt it is a arp bolt, i can't remember if i put a cam in yours or not if so then change out the came and pushrods to the new motor and of course the springs unless you are going to put the heads from your old motor on this one. send me a message if i did your cam it will show because i always changed the crank bolt to the arp 12 point. John, it did have the 12 point bolt on the crank.so.I will hang on to it. The head studs are also arp, so can I re-use them also? Another lesson learned.... 6.0 oil pan is significantly deeper than the 5.3. Im going to track one down locally and swap it as well. I believe the oil pan on yours is of the ls1 motor it is a little shallower, also keep the windage tray and the pick up tube if it is good and the studs are also good just thourghly clean everything. i would not keep the lifters as they are not that expensive to replace because the oil getting in them it would be hard to get all the metal out of them, as for the rockers pull them apart and clean or go to the harland sharp rockers from summit

  11. My wife also gets sick unless she takes ginger and with her she needs to start taking them a few days before we are going out and continue to take them as long as we are out. She tried dramamine and it just made her sick and sleepy. If you look up myth busters they tried all the stuff you all are talking about and found that ginger worked the best. I would say take them 2 or 3 days before you go out it is not going to hurt you as far as the ginger goes and it should be the pill form.
