Todd, that'd be great if you could manage something like that. There's no doubt that under those conditions we'd be crazy to turn it down.

Alright. Well, you guys need to tell me what city Fred lives in. I know there's a load on the board right now for Kelowna ( which isn't really west 'coast' ). Anything near Vancouver will probably be pretty easy to get.

Crap, I was going to say that I don't often see anything to the northern BC coast but we've got a load for Terrace, BC right now.

Hey Todd,

Still playing with it.
When do you plan to be in the area?
I can get off my butt and speed it up.

Cheers
Fred

I can't actually dispatch for Chilliwack or Terrace right now. We have too many high priority loads in front of them.

Probably ( if I get it ) I can dispatch to you in a week or two.

Oh, it's an open bed 1 ton. So we'll probably want to have the trans double or triple bagged with Hefties and duct tape for weather. An old tire would work well for cushioning/mounting.

I've got straps and bungees.

This weekend Steve, Dan, and Dave (B) came by to work on the Chump car. We started with a junkyard run to the local pick-n-pull where we rolled an S10 up on it's side and took the starter, bellhousing, flywheel, clutch, pressure plate, clutch fork, throwout bearing, bellhousing dust cover, and center fitting for the oil filter mount. Which cost us all of about $65. We left the S10 WC T-5 which would have cost us $150 because of the tailshaft and gearing.

Back at the Lab, Dave and Steve finished stripping the car while I put worked on mating the engine and transmission and Dan helped out wherever he was needed while also working on his TR7/Lexus swap, and by the time we finished we had the engine/tranny (4 speed) sitting in the car with a strap holding up the tailshaft and I have a couple of photos to prove it:

Sorry I couldn't be there to help. On the bright side, Piper's baseball team did knock off the only undefeated team left. :)

Thursday evening Todd came by with the transmission, I have some photos:

Don't know if the numbers are visible in the shots.
Anyway, I stood it up on end in case any water got in during transit but it didn't look like any drained out.

Thanks again to both Fred and Bob... uh, I mean Todd. That's a wonderful thing you guys did. Maybe we can put your names on the race car or something! :-)

Jim

That needs to be "Freddy Bobby" if you're making a Talladega Nights reference.

[en.wikipedia.org]

Which, come to think of it, might be a good theme for the car.

Just, uh, don't be kissing any French drivers on the mouth. 'Kay?

Oops, sorry. Yeah, that's what I meant. I couldn't actually torture myself to watch the movie.
