We have taken the rear axle out. I will strip the Camaro axle for its trip to Texas to get its new Ford 9" outer bearing ends, new axles and find some more Ford Big drum brakes with thee 5x5 bolt pattern. this will give Ms Liberty a wider stance and a second rear axle.

Sum and Ruth dropped by for a few days and he helped me shuffle my "yard art".  John and Andy helped us with the car on Sunday afternoon.

Sum went home with a 7.5" Torsen to go with the 2.28 gear set he got from me 2 years ago.  He should have his tranny by the time he gets home

Sparky , why drum brakes, I would prefer disks at El Mo. Drum brakes can fade pretty fast at speed and disk parts are easier to get. Just my thoughts. Have a Happy Thanskgiving and give your wife a hug for me. :cheers:

next step:  We will relocate the fuel pressure regulator an reroute the fuel lines so that we have room for the ECU mounting bracket, change the battery cut off, and mount the data logger in the bottom of the car between the eng and the tank bay.  When we get the NA eng where it will fire and run then we will pul it and start back with the turbo stuff.  Our plan is to get the turbo eng where it will fire and run ASAP so that we can .  We can idle the eng for 15-20 min with out getting above 200 F.  This will let us run all the pumps and such and data log.  we can get a leg up on all this stuff (hopefully  :-P )

Just got back from Tx.  lots to do-- picked up a goose neck trailer that had been hit in the sides- over all I have a hitch and 2 good axles --will  redesign and lengthen it an make a designated race car hauler/storage  out of it so that I can repossess  my shop floor space---lots to do in 2014.

have spent several hours with the trailer---off and on with a tape measure---am starting to get an idea of what needs to be done the frame has been bent  the rear is off by about a foot. Looks like the best way to fix this thing is cut all the cross pieces out and get the main rails straight and to the length that I want then start back with the upper rails and the floor joists. Will also most likely relocate the dolly jack so the winch line can pull straight down the center of the trailer floor.

Recycling a trailer, that's what us poor racer's do! :cheers:
My trailer was a 32ft long tag for hauling well casings.

As if he isn't busy enough, Treit is outfitting a new support trailer.

Korey stripped out the old one and now they are building a new bigger one.

Trailers........Ya. Another axle and that means more tires.

They are considering microphones to listen for blowouts.

The electronic age is replacing rear view mirrors.

Maybe I didn't get that exractrilly rite.

I wish  :-D.
Never owned a trailer.

I borrowed a bunch though.

You can always judge a racer's budget on what trailer he has.
NASCAR comes to mind. :cheers:
