    https://www.reuters.com/world/us/canada-extends-land-border-restrictions-with-us-another-month-minister-2021-04-20/ Border closed to May 21st, so that's it for us then. Figured it would be the case but this makes it official. :(

    Monthly Virtual Meets - 2nd Saturday of the Month

    I won't be in this week, going to get in some winter wheeling before everything turns into mud!

    Thanks Quiky! I enjoy seeing all the repairs and stuff done in the other PyC threads, so it's only fair I add some of my own.

    Is dicking around with a chop saw and a welder reeeeeeeally manual labour? I say no! Stop questioning my methods, damnit! I need this! (For real though, once you hit a certain tube size/ wall thickness you basically need to go hydraulic if you're not The Hulk.)

    So I've been working on a few other projects while I wait for a couple of final transmission parts to show up. This is very annoying. Like $9 worth of parts keeping me from doing final assembly. A local tool place had a sale on a tube bender kit, which is a clone of a JD-Squared Model 32 and...

    Scotland has some incredible landscapes too, though maybe they don't let you 4x4 in them! OK spoiler below for the easter egg:

    By the way, there's a bit of a funny easter egg in one of the photos, see if you can spot it.

    Took a weekend off from transmission work and took a trip out to Waiparous Falls. Usually a very easy, popular winter trail but blowing snow had caused some pretty deep drifts. So many stock Tacomas on street tires buried to the frame with eight people trying to dig them out. The river crossing...

    Moab 2021: This time we are going (May 17-21, 2021)

    That all looks amazing! Our schedule is cleared for the trip (brother's wedding got pushed back to June), but we haven't made any firm plans yet as the border is still closed. :/

    Hello, and welcome back to Too Many Pictures of Transmission Guts Theater after that short commercial break. The forward direct clutch drum is back from the machine shop and has a nice new stepped reaction plate that allowed me to run an extra clutch. The waved snap ring has been swapped out...

    Overdrive section? Overdrive section! But first, a brief history of Torqueflite transmissions. In 1962, the A727 Torqueflite was introduced. It was the "big" transmission Chrysler designed to handle the ever-increasing power appearing in passenger cars in the 60s, alongside the smaller A904...

    I approve the hell out of this! Have you had a crack at figuring out what go-fast goodies are in there?

    FWIW it doesn't feel a lot different than engine building, as long as you replace worn parts and do things in the right order and check your clearances you should be OK. The shop manuals are very detailed, most measurements are done with a set of feeler gauges and the expensive measurement tools...

    So like 10ish years ago when I did the 5.9L build/swap, I also swapped in a low(er)-miles 46RH transmission from a junkyard ZJ. I put in a Transgo TFOD-H2 shift kit at the time and since then it has performed very well. As noted in a previous post, I bought a broken 46RH (which was in a 1995 ZJ...
