  1. Buttoning up more stuff on my car. Filled the trans, took the old fuel system completely out to replace with PTFE hose and new fittings. Seems like it will never be done! Hung some body panels and now it's time to start drinking.
  2. Call Kartek, ask for Jeff Black, tell him your my buddy. He'll ship you what you need today.
  3. Everything I buy is a good deal. Everything I sell is a great deal.
  4. I forget, is El Monte Spanish for "shit hole city" or "my neighbors have chickens"?
  5. Sweet invite bro. If it were me I'd do all the touristy type stuff I've never done, even though I've lived in CA my entire life. Ronald Reagan museum always has a cool exhibit. We saw the Abraham Lincoln one and it was really neat. Winchester house Hearst Castle Lots of stuff to see in San Francisco if you can avoid the human feces problem
  6. Not sure what @stetler gets but I've seen flatness on CL for $50-$75/day and enclosed trailers for $100-$125/day.
  7. @stetler rents flatbeds and is in Orange, CA. I have two flatbeds but I'm about 50 miles west of Rancho Cucamonga.
  8. The bearing might not need to be replaced at all. Pull the cap off, loosen the pinch bolt and tighten the spindle nut a little. Do this while spinning the tire to make sure it turns freely. Check it for the 'wobble' and see if it's gone. Or tighten the spindle nut until you cannot turn the tire and back it off a little at a time until the tire will spin and check for the wobble. Why are you replacing the hydraulic steering with electric?

  10. Cancer. Sucks, Kevin was a great guy.
  11. Any thread I open with a video uploaded/attached (not a YouTube link) seems to slow it down.
  12. A minimal amount of fluid will come out while capping/plugging the lines. The entire system all the way back to the master will not be drained. Adding another bulkhead fitting and a steel braided line is one more connection point and a possible failure. And adding that on the premise that it makes the hubs easier to remove for servicing? How often are you working on the hubs? Annually? Most of what I do on my car and the cars I service/prep is based on my years as a member and Crew Chief of a Class 1 Unlimited race team. The car was 75% stripped down after each race which included the brakes, calipers and brake lines. We re-bled the system each time, obviously, so bleeding brakes isn't really that big of a deal to me.
  13. Nice upgrade. Seems like great price to do all that work. I really need to ad a fuel station to mine. I'm ripping out the 120v four bulb fluorescent lights in my trailer and going with all LED.
  14. Good real world info. But you know the questions are coming... How much HP... How much angle... What type of grease... How much air pressure... I put a EMPI 934 on Paul Tracy's Tatum last Thanksgiving cause that's all he had for a spare and as far as I know it went the rest of the season. His car has to be arund 1500HP and he rives the shit out of it. Two EMPI CV boxes sitting on the paddle.
