New Samurai Owner tcase question
So I picked up an 86 samurai the previous owner put in 6.5:1 gearing and 31in tires, I have yet to drive it up to high way speed but in general the rpms are crazy on it. Would putting smaller tires on make the load easier or would I have to put a higher range of gears in it. Keep in mind I do want...
700 r4 tranny-- possible to readjust tv cable? or install a new one?

Mig welding boom.
I've been looking at ways to make working easier and myself more efficient in the new shop. One thing I can't stand is dragging a welder around large projects. Planning on a 14ft boom with the height adjustable and balanced so I can pull it down. I see them built with the power supply on the ground...
Bucket of coal near Valley Forge PA this weekend?
Any pirates in the area know where one can acquire a bucket of coal in the VF area of PA this weekend? Theoretically there will be a group of scouts making a pilgrimage to that historical place to observe a reenactment of the winter of 1777-1778. They will be greeted with authentic weather, as...
oset trials bike anyone?
I grew up riding/racing pit bikes and have always been into the technical aspect of BMX street, so... does anyone have any experience with these? $2700ish which is on part with the new pit bike I was going to buy but I could ride it almost anywhere. Also from reviews they have 3 power settings...
California registration advice please
I owned a Samurai years ago, and now that I'm retired, looking for another. Not many in California that are what I'm wanting; bone stock or as close as I can get. I have found them in other states and willing to travel, however, I'm not sure if I'll run into trouble with California DMV what with...

How do you design a leaf spring?
So - I have a vehicle that I bought, that has one broken leaf spring and one apparently worn out leaf spring which leaves me with no leaf springs to copy. From what I gather, the rear leaf springs look good based on the shackle angle (shackles being within 10 deg of center) so I can assume,...
Geometry. My post KOH bi annual suspension thread.
It's awesome to see the sport change and advance . It's certainly exciting times to be an enthusiast. Over the years I've been watching, learning and adjusting my own junk thanks to the countless hours of research and testing done by tuners and racers. My shock selections have evolved, spring...
Seabass gets a 40
So I bought this 76 fj40 because my rig I'm telling myself I'm "building" was still on jackstands for KOH. I bought it with the intention of driving it around KOH with a for sale sign on it and I'd get back to finishing my other build. The sign never made it to the windshield. This thing was a...
