  • AZ: Phoenix meet 11/20

    Chas and Pete should be coming up from Tucson on Sunday to help with my car... so I might as well make it into a meet for those available! Help if you want, don't help if you don't want to... it's cool. Either way the tranny is coming out. I'll be out in the garage around 9am, but come whenever you want. We (er, my wife) will be providing lunch and beverages too.

    Please pm me if you're planning to show up (or call/txt me at 602.43two.3974) and I'll send my address... also so we can make sure to have enough stuff.

                  Thanks to Chas, Pete, RAD, and DarkDragon for making it out.. and thanks for the help! It was nice to meet Ken and Brian... and finally put a face to the name. Sorry you couldn't make it Nez...

                  So... after a very long 2.5 hours (:p), I was sad to see this...



                  So it appears that the intermediate shaft bearing seized and cracked the housing.... at least that's the best guess without opening up the case. Also, the Spec Stage 3+ appeared intact -- all springs were where they were supposed to be. So that's about 18k miles on the clutch, and about 50k miles since the tranny was rebuilt.

                    So I am coming back up for Tue, Wed, and Thur. So I can help out Tue and Wed evening/night!

                    Also, I may bug you while I'm there to take one of the Toe Control Arms loose at the heim, so I know what I'm dealing with ;)

                      Fair enough :D

                      I have the engine support brace on, and the subframe tightened up. I'll probably be picking up some wheel dollys on Monday, so I'm hoping to have the car moved over by Monday night... but that's dependent on work. Either way, you're welcome to come by... just let me know.

                        If you want to put the move off until Tuesday, I'll be glad to lend a hand. If not, I'll still come by and bug you anyway

                          heh k. I'm actually off tomorrow, so that would work out better... as long as I don't get called back in. I'm also thinking about putting it back together and moving it like normal. I hate to put things together, just to take it back apart... but it seems like the most simple route. Then I wouldn't be out $100+ for a decent pair of wheel dollys, and I could use that money for the tranny rebuild.

                          So my next steps are to get moving on sending the tranny out, and also getting new front wheel bearings so I can swap the hubs and be done with that.

                            Sounds good. It shouldn't take us too long to put it back together.

                            I'm excited to start work on the axels. I'm hoping the hubs will take the standard contour bearings, I never thought to ask Frank when ordering.

                            I'll call you once I've run all my service calls before I head over.
