Re: "The Bucket" project diary

Motor/Trans/Xfer...PHASE 2...COMPLETED!

So yesterday was the day. Got the final pieces put back on, cleaned it up & we went for a maiden voyage! It drives so much smoother now. Crazy how much vibration & all was in that old drivetrain. Even my 9yr old boy was excited, and he is usually not into this at all. But he now likes playing with the air horn button on the shifter & wanted to drive it, so I let him.
Made a run up to Little Mountain - 130 miles, 1/2 tank of gas & we were back home with no major problems!
