No real picture worthy pics....

But I did get the truck from Willis' yesterday, and I couldn't be happier now.

Everything on the truck seems to be muyyy BUENO.

He said he took it in the dirt for a little bit, he took it down a bunch of main roads for a bit, took it down a bunch of really messed up Wittmann / Hicktown roads, even took it on the freeway at like 75 or 80 mph and got....

NO DEATH WOBBLE.

Plus he fixed the whole timing an running correctly issue. I will let him explain what the issue was. It was something with the distributor and being set clockwise when it should have been set counterclockwise or something. I guess also there wasn't constant power to the EFI, so every time I shut the truck off it killed the power completely to the EFI and forgot what it had just learned. I will definitely mess up the explanation so I will leave that up to him....

The issue with the death wobble, he got all new steering, new tie rods and sleeved the the long tie rod so it wasn't so weak and wobbly. He made new tie rod extenders that you can see in the pictures.

I couldn't be happier with everything he did, JUST AS I FIGURED.....

I am going to clean it up and finish some little stuff this afternoon, but I plan to start dailying it to make sure everything is good.




Again, I couldn't be happier.


(Loggie Bear did leave the air cleaner cap on WRONG. But dgaf fukkk him. I'll cum in one of his backhalf tubes before Willy Will Will welds it all up..... He might like that though?¿?¿?‽‽‽)

Let’s hope the metal from the gear didn’t ruin the motor before we think it’s good to go 🤣 but for real that hopefully didn’t happen. And just to re verify I did not fuck with the distributor when it was at my place. Only set the timing properly and the lock out rotation on the rotor.
