    The shifter bushings and seat from Marlin Crawler help a lot in making the shifter feel more sturdy.

    I think the stock gears will work well for the racing I plan on doing (drag/road racing). Were it a highway car/DD that 5th would be awesome!

    Trans parts ordered, Head is at the porter, along with the upper/lower intake manifolds, turbo manifold, and the various gaskets he'll need for templates. Not sure how long it'll take, but since Winter just arrived, that's fine with me!

    Transmission synchro sleeves, 1-2, and the 3-4 synchro rings are in my hands! Marlin Crawler has the order for the shift fork and thrust washer, but the washer is on backorder atm, should be rebuilding the trans in a week or so!

    New piston rings are in, as are the engine bearings. Head gasket will either be here tomorrow or Wednesday so things are moving along quite nicely!


    Things left to order:
    Valvesprings
    Clutch
    IC piping
    Exhaust piping
    more likely

    Steve, last I checked Wes Beech was selling a thrust washer that you'd have to machine down for proper spacing, but pretty sure he has em available

    Correct! Don't ask how much work Jeremy had to do to get that thing!

    Also, I'm OK with waiting the week it'll take to get the MC washer

    What size exhaust are you going to use and clutch setup? Rebuilding the diff as well while you're at it?

    We all know the "while I'm at it" bug.

    Oh the "while I'm at it" bug for me would include a Weir Performance LSD rebuild kit lol. xD

    and Steve... no kidding! Probably a year and a half xD
