just added 200 watts of solar charging to the road trip machine for those times and places where you can't use a generator to charge the batteries
after 130,000 hard miles the steering box on my F350 is just plain sloppy I have one of these showing up on Thursday and getting installed on Friday
ordered Monday, shipped Monday arrived in CA at my door today
needs moar shims.
also, not in root beer.
2/10, would not steer.
shop called , the pitman arm is so corrodedand rusty that they can't get it off the old gear box spindle. getting a new one installed. ( I rrequested the return of all old parts)
Penetrating oil, heat and a hammer.
Well the last motor blew up in my Evo chop, so I pulled it all apart for paint while I was shopping for a new one. It's finally all back together and should fire up this weekend (if all goes as planned).
Just about there!
This may be of interest to you guys too... a friend and I are building a turbocharged '85 RZ350 (water cooled two stroke) to run at Bonneville this year (provided we have it done in time).
@CastleMaster nice love the retro look.
That's a hot bike, nice work!
take both bikes to the born free show.
He finally got it off after 30 minutes of heat, a puller and a big hammer
new one in place
Well I loaded the camper back up and took the rig, all 13,000 pounds of it out for a spin. It drove like a heave truck as expected but it went where I pointed it with no steering slop and no front end wandering. So far it was worth the up grade
so far I have replaced, Turbo, EGR, all 4 rotors, one front caliper, Y pipe on the exhaust, Front Tie Rods, Steering Gear Box and Pittman arm. Wheels, and two fuel pressure sensors, upper and lower ball joints, steering stabilizer, front and rear anti sway bars, added airbags, Front hitch, heavy duty rear hitch, 200 watts of solar panels.
got air ride on and wheels made. gonna narrow the wheels up .5" for 10" to 9.5" so it tucks when aired out.
however it'll be going back to stock soon and to the lady as im looking at diesel Q7's
I sold my Merkur and picked this up. From one turbocharged nightmare to another.
At least I should have an easier time getting a bike rack for this one.
I've only seen one other B5 passat 2.7T swap. that'll be a fun toy if/when its all sorted.
Already have my "grass pass" for the Evo
Oh, and I'm officially back on the road!
Nice you took the training wheels off!
Who build the engine you installed?
Haha, yeah. The motor is a fresh reman straight from HD.
Rear seat but no pegs that might be uncomfortable
Good eye! I have not gotten around to putting those back on. She can always just wrap her legs around my waist anyway.
LOVE the tank.
I was thinking upper seat was for his ass, the lower for his giant ballz
I didn't know you had this kind of knowledge about his balls. If think the two of you need to keep it a little more private.
I hope. It needs a clutch and the comfort control module went scuba diving so I have to find out where the water is getting in. It starts up and runs very nice. No check engine light thankfully.
Yup. I really liked that car. Very simple and fun to drive. It need some rust repair and the guibo on the driveshaft was going. I picked it up as a car that sat for 18 years and it wasn't running. I plan on getting another one someday. 5 cars was just too many.
must spread rep ...
My guess is the passenger side sunroof drain. I think the CCM is in the passenger footwell in those cars. That was/has always been an issue with those cars.
I assume that car was originally syncro or haldex or whatever VW called the B5 AWD cars. If not i bet that car will move out once rolling.
a true money pit....not sure if i wanna finish...
this song comes to mind....
New glass and dash-pad
I got this back last fall for the winter (C320, AWD). Needed lots of little stuff.
Front right seat was missing the fore-aft seat motor and jammed full forward, after not finding the motor anywhere, I ordered a L/H lower seat frame w/motor from ebay, then reversed the seat motor bracket and installed it on the R/H lower seat frame, which wasn't an exact replacement, as the bracket was slightly different, but it still fit in and works perfectly. I had to slowly "unwind" the seat by taking the seat-pan out and getting at it from above, to move it rearward, only then could I remove the heavy seat and do all the stuff above with the motor/frame. This was a huge job.
Replaced the L/H power window control. Got the M-emblem for the grille. New front brake rotors. Studded tires. New battery. Made a new wheel-well panel out of a trash-can (cut to fit). Replaced a few lights.
The defroster/ventilation did go out recently, so I had to bring it to the shop for that, I wasn't going to take apart the whole dash, crazy big job and I'd probably take me a few weeks. Little actuator arms open and close to control the venting and they went bad, so got that all rebuilt at the shop.
Ran awesome all winter, virtually unstoppable in the snow and ice. Selling it now as it's no longer winter.
Oh, I love it. Those bikes are insane stock, couldn't imagine a turbo setup. There was an old guy in Medford who had 2 of them. One was Kenny Roberts yellow, he wouldn't part with either of them. He showed me them when he saw my yellow 50th anniversary R1.
My neighbour is rebuilding this for a friend. '69 Triumph Bonneville.
