    I wish I could get motivated. Such a beautiful night here. Just sitting around in the shop listening to 70s Rock n Roll and eating chocolate covered peanuts! Waiting for the garden nomes to put this Turtle Racer back together! LMAO.

    Good work sticking with it!
    When I read about your transmission issues I have flashbacks to putting a t5 in my car. It turns out one year only had a slightly longer bearing retainer and used a matching bellhousing that was slightly deeper. I had the wrong bellhousing so the sleeve on the bearing retainer was contacting the clutch and holding the disk against the flywheel all the time.
    I chased what I, several mechanics and two transmission shops thought was a problem with the slave cylinder, pedal or fork. It was along time before I found and solved the real problem.
    10 years later it’s still working, so in 10 years you can look back on your transmission woes as just a bad memory lol

    @AldeanFan,
    I hope you can document the T5 issues and post it in one of the T5 threads. It might save someone else a bunch of headaches.

    Not a T5 transmission. It’s a 6 gear.

    Watching vintage tractors pull tonight. Should be drag racing, waiting on parts.
    I have to be careful around this stuff, the last thing I need is another hobby! LMAO.

    Actually might be more my speed! Lol

    I have a 1965 Oliver 1850 but it has a 360 Amc engine with a 400 turbo and it will run way faster than you want to drive it though it is the perfect fork lift I can lift up a entire car with it my dad built it many years ago when he ran the White, Oliver, and Minneapolis moline dealer

    I missed the steam show this year. The pulls are always a good time. Having dabbled in that world a bit, I can attest it is just as big of a rabbit hole as the one we normally talk about.

    Just about ready to "floor" test the throw out etc. And slap her back in. Both rear header bolt holes were stripped out. Probably from taking the stupid headers off 100 times. Lol.

    Pretty thin wall there so no room for helicoil. Just drilled it out and tapped it 7/16.
