Box brackets just need paint and final assembly. Everything mounted and drilled and stuff.

Couple mud flaps would be good too.

Anybody have 3’ of 4” garden edging I could have for a quickie fix?

Steel warming up for paint. Not sure where I’ll spray or where I’ll let them dry yet. :-/

Boxes are on. I goofed on clearance by a little bit. I’ll know if they settle when they’re loaded up. Need to adjust the flange on the flatbed a little bit and I’ll call them good for now. I think I can resist the motivation to put lights in them and move the arb until more important tasks are complete.

I’m so fucking ADD.

Saw dash volt gauge at 18 sustained today. Edge and cig lighter showed 14 and 14.6 respectively. Needle had lost its zero somehow. Cluster self test at second fuel stop fixed that.

Low pressure fuel gauge spiked to 100psi for a while (5 minutes? Maybe 10). It usually lives at 5-8, occasionally around 1-2. While I was waiting to find a good spot to check that out, it went back down to where it belongs over the course of 30 seconds. Resetting the Edge had made no difference so either it was a short and the readout has some significant smoothing, or an actual pressure fluke of the cp3 back feeding supply or who knows what.

Half an hour ago I started getting “service required, visit dealer now” on the overhead. (5 hours after the low pressure thing) No codes stored. Checked with Edge and with Smarty. Cleared with Smarty. Guess I’ll reload the tune if that repeats tomorrow? No drivability symptoms. Just a nice ding with nothing in the cluster. Overhead only.

All the prep done I’ve done and still weird shit just happens. Because mikemike?

Must be going around.. 6th gear in my truck is starting to get moody, going to change the oil with some additive and see what happens.. It could have been due to the cold temps the last time it was driven as well.

If it doesn't help I need to make a serious decision between putting some money into it or shipping it. Unfortunately for me it just got new batteries and tires in December..

No moodiness here. Just broke a tooth. Click/snap and then a horrible cyclic rumble in 6th. I can hear a click in gearover noise at idle but it’s run about 3000 miles since Albuquerque where it happened without grenading...

found my teeth.

Disappointed in the silver in the oil. Hoped I could put it back in after 30k. Maybe think about sending it. Hmmm

Have to find docs and remind myself what the trick is to splitting the case. I think I’m missing one more fork pivot.

May be over to the shop tomorrow if gears need pressing.

I should have remembered from last time how annoying it is to get proper fluid for this thing.

spent 2 hours digging. found nothing likely local. 2 gallons of Mobil Delvac Synthetic MTF 50 will be here Tuesday. Unless that's something in stock at Main St but from what I think I recall last time when I put Pennzoil Synchromesh in it, I don't think it was.

I don't remember what fluid I put into my transmission but I got maybe 2 gallons of it left over.  It was that fancy stuff from Emerson oil. You are welcome to use that if it will work
