Well folks, I've been asked a few times, so I thought that I should answer the unasked question. Why wasn't at RMIHR this year, it pained me to miss it ~ it was the first time since 1999. I have a ton of stuff I could have brought, but no time to pack it up. The Friday before RMIHR a customer, Paul Dulfer, came in ~ we had his Scout at the engine shop for a while and he came in to see what was happening. We just had Kevin @ Performance put in a brand new 345, with all the trimmings (only took 2 weeks), then we sent off a TF727 to A&A trans. They professionally built it, with kevlar clutches/bands, RV gear set, bolt-in-sprag and a custom 1800 stall TC. That took a month or two. Behind that we put an Atlas II, 3.8 drop, upgraded output shafts. The Atlas took the most time, but was finally in and ready for the suspension work to start. Paul came in after checking on the Scout, and satified that the scout was ready for us, he asked, " what's the chance of getting it by Friday?" "I highly doubt we can do it." I told him. Paul then relayed that it had to be done, that the Army decided to send him out to Iraq again, and he left shortly after his training in Colorado Springs was over. When what it over, the Friday RMIHR started, just a week away. (Paul is a Black-ops BlackHawk pilot). I said that I'd try, but needed it immediately. I cleared some room in the shop and TUESDAY afternoon Pauls rig showed up and was pulled in. That's right folks, a mere 4 days before I was supposed to be manning the gates at the RMIHR. Tuesday night Paul and Led pulled the axles out of the Scout II and that's about it. 3 days to go, and Friday we had an exhaust appointment. Wednesday morning I showed up at the shop at 5 am to get to work. By noon, the Reverse Shackle was done and frame cleared off for the LTSS. By nightfall we had both front and rear ends in place and perches welded. I hired Russel (a buddy of mine) and owner of RockToyz to rebuild the axles w/ 4.27 gears and Detroit/ARB. Before we sent of the axles, I measured the driveshafts and had Jesse @ HighAngle Driveline 2nd-day airing them to me. That night Russell brought the axle back and we finished installing them ~ I left at 10pm. Thursday morning started early, 5 am. I installed the LTSS and painted everything under the rig. Paul, the machinist, had a set of flat-top knuckles ready, so we performed the HySteer conversion. I busted Paul's chops and got the TieRod, DragLink and some other small parts in as well. My UPS drop-off came in at 10 am, and with it came the Warn Full Floater kit. I called and got Warn to overnight a discbrake kit in as well. Both showed up and Pual and I got busy. Left at 10-11 pm. Friday morning (Day of early registration for RMIHR) ~ I slept in but got to the shop shortly after 6. FedEx showed up bright and early and delivered two driveshafts. A perfect fit. Turns out that the Scotu didn't want to start. We called Kevin. Kevin came over (right around the corner) and got busy. Turns out the tech plugged the Park/Nuetral switch into the t-case. A quick switch and Pauls rig was roaring. It had a fresh 345, w/ stans headers only. We idled it to the exhaust at about 10 am.
