Sorry, not making this one. Working on tearing my ride down this weekend. Engine is already out. Tranny next. Cut more of the rear off. That's probably it for the weekend. Doing it now hoping to hit some upcoming events.

Enjoy it and take lots of pics for the site.

We had a good time at the SilverDollar today. Nigel (Yellow73), Danny (Wrenchnride247) and I got to meet JohnnyVee and also got to spend some time with old friends.
It was a smaller turnout than years past and I hope we get to see this event return next year.
Nigel won 1st place for Late Model Bug Modified.
Here are some pix

Well, it was originally because I have been getting a nasty thump when hitting certain bumps and indications were that my front tranny mount was shot. An engine and tranny removal later indicates that it is perfectly fine. so goes my history with this car.

I have been wanting to swap gearing anyway, so it isn't a total wash, but I am left not knowing what the hell is making that very bad sound. I am now suspecting the rear tranny bolts as one was not too tough to get off. I am going to recheck my spring plates as well.

Several other plans for the car while it is back apart again. Hopeful to have it on the road in a couple of months.

Sorry I missed this show. Looks like it was fun and some good weather. I WILL see you at some other shows this year though.

Zen, while you have the drive train out, check your trailing arms out. I remember sometime ago someone on here (maybe you?) being instructed to place both the spacer's at the pivot bolt on the OUTSIDE of the arm. After bolting everything up like this I flipped the car on its side (rotisserie's are SO nice ) and noticed the spring plates being drawn in to connect to the arms. This made the two bolt heads for camber and height adjustments on the 944 spring plates rub the shock towers. I then swapped the spacer's to the INSIDE and got a better alignment for bolting to the arms, and gave some more clearence for the springplate bolts. This is just something to check for the noise you're hearing maybe. Although the trans cradle bolt loose could be it... just something else to check while your under there.
