... yesterday was Friday the 13th...
That could not have been his problem. As Pogo used to say in the comic strip- "When Friday the 13th falls on a Friday, all is well; but when Friday the 13th falls on a Tuesday... or a Saturday... or whatever- watch out!" evil

I got my brackets cut out and cleaned up---but I am going to wait until I have a second pair of hands and eyes to measure to make sure I have a better shot at alignment ---just as soon not have Ms Liberty not dog tracking down the track.  shocked

Marty came by last night and welded the axle brackets to the new axel and the frame brackets so I now have a axle I can take in and out.  I am taking the time to reroute the brake lines to shield them from the turbos when we get there.  Once again  I am reminded why folks say that Special construction takes 3 to 4 times as long as door slammers.  Every thing is a long thinking process as well as having to "BRACKET RACE" your way through the whole process.

John came over for about 4 hours---we got STUFF done,, the oil pan is now all hooked back up and all the dry sump lines installed.
  the axle is bolted in and it aligns nicely
 the brake lines are in they are UGLY but you can't see the ugly and they are functional

I should be able to finish most of the axle  and start reinstalling the water tank  then on to the carb and tps stuff.

Andy came over for an hour to night---we bled the brakes and adjusted the shoes---I finished the brakes the AM and worked on the fuel system and TPS off and on this afternoon.

Thanks Sum for all you have done toward this Data Logging stuff
