I heard a S 10 tailshaft housing can be installed on a F body T-5 and they are a bit stronger.
I forgot there is a s 10 T-5 on the dayton craigslist and I think it said its from a 92
Rozie an me are going, as we are meeting TurboHaddix to pick up an old Powerglide. Sounds like a good time...
Thanks for this link chris55, not too far up the highway...I'll try to make it.
stephen was telling me about this saturday, man that does suck!!
still hopin' that somone can relay the motor/trans to this, john said he is about 100 miles from cinci...could anyone possibly meet him halfway and then take the motor/trans to the meet and greet?
I forgot My Shop is open 11am-6pm...DUH....Looks like I'll miss the first Meet and greet !!
Any who.....stop by the shop after the event,
Just a reminder, Kruze in, every Thursday Starting March 26 !!
Have Rosie watch the joint for a couple hours.
The only ride close to being ready to drive WON'T be done in time...and I think there will only be two of us instead of three. But we should still be there.
I just tried to call you....no answer....
See you all there!
I guess I'm getting Bob's engine/trans from someone, picking up a 6 and a 4 from Stevo's place, then going to New Carlisle for a 54 3/4 ton truck chassis. Anyone else need anything from the great white (wet) north? I'm taking my 1 ton dually and a flat bed and Courtland get's to drive. I'm taking a nap.
Hope to reach Stevo's place FIRST, then on to the M&G.
Hey just a heads up. I was at Midwest Early Ford in Springfield (2141 West Main St. about 15 mins from The get together) and they're having a walk-in sale. Check it out. You can call to see if they have what you need in stock. 800-543-5035.
anything goin on mid-week? GMgrunt and i will be in town Wednesday and Thursday.
Just wanted to say it was nice meeting everyone today. Wish we could have stayed longer. Can't wait to see you all again.
It was nice to see the cars that showed up today. I wish I had known some of you guys before I went. Perhaps I will be able to drive my truck under its own power for the next one. Does anyone around here go to Pigeon Forge for the Rod runs in April and September?
I totally missed it because I forgot/had other plans. (finished CCW course)
I'll see you guys at some of the shows and cruise-in's I guess....
And it'd still be great to save Cinematic somehow.
Now let's see some pics!
I had a great time meeting you today, took my 64 Sprint out for its real 1st real cruise, Nice to meet the boys from Richmond ZomBrian, saw Carlos and his crew, and all of you, and we had a few besides me that drove their Rods!! Had to go SPEND some cash at Hot Rods Truck Parts, got some new Front Fenders for my 48 F1 Panel....Look for it soon!!! Lets get together again soon!!
would like to thank everyone who helped load my motor/trans, I appreciate it greatly...and i hope no one threw there backs out lol
Cruise-in at Bill's joint every Thursday night, weather permitting.
More pix coming as soon as they're uploaded.
It was a blast meeting y'all! To the ones I didn't get to meet, there will be other opportunities....oh yes, there WILL be more.
Here's what I shot -
And Bob is gonna owe some people some favors and one guy a pair of jeans...
HOLY SHIT!!!!!! THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!!!! I WISH I COULD SHAKE EVERYONE'S HAND FOR DOING THAT I REALLY DO APPRECIATE IT!!!! (see I even put all caps, so you know im serious)
Or and idiot...The jury is still out.
more pics. here.
yeah ive heard that one as well lol
Hey Vance, lets get together with Mike (Kustombuilder) and get your trans back up here. He's going to go right by here on his way through.
Bob, you'd better bring a big truck to get this anchor out of the SS Bull. It is one heavy son of a bitch!
Nice to meet who I did. I was kind of zombied by the turn out, was really cool. I don't realize how lucky us GMBs have it. When we have a M&G breakfast, most of us know each other. You guys live just a town over from each other and have never met. It was cool that you did it once, now do it again, like bi-monthly!!
I'll come to another one. It was fun. I enjoyed talking to you all and thanks for the load help!
Thanks Dan, I'll call him. I've got a couple DVDs for his IPod that I'm sure he's itchin for.
I'm all for doing a Meet & Greet on a more regular basis. Hell, I'll even be willing to host one; I've got a huge back yard, and a monster sized deck. Let's look into this for a spring or summer M&G.
Guys I had a great time meeting everybody.
A few of us mentioned networking with each other. Click on my profile and subscribe to my group Ohio/Indiana swap meet and theres another group by Terranova called Ohio in my profile.
Join these groups and network etc. etc..
We were talking and a few of us said if I just knew of somebody going to a meet somewhere they would be more comfortable driving their old cars with original engines but without support the cars stay at home.
I know I have done this with my flathead equiped 49. I had a water pump seize on me and was lucky I made it home on my own.
Having another car with you or a cell number changes that.
I will help with what I can. Relay, body work, welding, drink your beer, eat your food! etc.
Sorry I missed it, still sorting out the tunnel ram.
