Broke off the bolt extractor in the broken off drivers side lower water pump bolt on a chevy 400... :roll:

All out and peachy now, but I want to cover the idjit that decided that hole should be through-drilled into the coolant passage in marmite and honey, then throw em in the Outback for a hike.

Congrats Perry, a superb achievement - but the question is where will the next 10 years go given they will happen 4 times faster!

:cheers: Perry!
We're closing in on 12 years in July.

Otherwise, it's been packing, packing, packing. Moving this weekend to the new house.
Spent last night getting all the Locost bits together & loaded on the chassis for a pending sale.

Picked up a '99 4.0l jeep cherokee AW4 4 speed overdrive automatic to replace the 727 3 speed in my DJ5 Jeep. Should bolt up and not much demand for them. $75 for the good trans with converter, harness, and it cost me another $50 for the TCM to control it with the connector and some wire. I'll need to make a TPS for the carburetor with a resistor to drop the volts (since there is no engine computer) and a TV cable brkt (like a 700r4.

Also picked up a set of dodge 16x7 steel rims with stainless rings for $50 that have the perfect offset to clear the leaf springs and will get 235-65-16 tires (at $80 each) the same as the tracker with XL7 rims.

In both cases, the sellers had "upgraded" and the parts were in their way.

I love other peoples junk. :cheers:
