Jack Stand Competition

looks like i'm going back to jack stand racing and talkin **** about a car that doesn;t run. think i popped a head gasket sat night, so i'm gonna pull the motor out, change the cam up a lil, try to see if i can tighten the converter a lil. Gonna go back with some cometic gaskets too. and since it's already on jack stands i'll do the 5 lug conversion at the same time. so oh well,. **** happens. so now 2 of my toys are broken LOL (my 4wheeler has a rod knockin) so anyone in the mood to pull a motor? i'll supply the beer, and i do have some BBQ leftover from the weekend.

Re: Jack Stand Competition

its probably running 1000:1 compression on walmart head gaskets, put cometics when you go back with it. this is a good chance to make everything right

Re: Jack Stand Competition

yeah i would have never built that motor without cometics. cause as soon as it gets back together. hello mr bottle(2 OF THE BIG ONES).
guess i need to just go make a loan and do the FRONT AND rear suspension at the same time. LOL

Re: Jack Stand Competition

I think brad will completely beat your *** in any kind of a jackstand competition...just don't run him for pinks, because you will lose and lose badly. That car has spent more time on stands than it has seen on the road since he has owned it. It always finds its way there when the big race day comes too....so you know he is a jack stand pro.

Re: Jack Stand Competition

i use my testicles more than i use my 4wheeler no doubt. but the winter is comin up so i need to have my bike running cause we mud ride in the winter. garunteed to have women wet when they ride with me. but damn some new suspension would be nice. i need to call jaime and see what;s up with that 6 speed. cause hell i could go ahead and do the swap now. i know where i can get a WC t5 but that would never hold the power of my motor.

Re: Jack Stand Competition

i have a 90 GSX. 'nuff said. My jackstands have only been out from under that car once in like the past year, and that was to jack up the Cobra during detail week.

Re: Jack Stand Competition

unfortunately im rebuilding the PS Rack right now, waiting on another set of seals (they sent the wrong set and the right set is on backorder). Also have a new PS Pump to throw on, and a 3" Cat, so i can get it smogged and on the road. Also need to diagnose and fix a suspension clunk whenever i hit bumps, i think the struts/shocks are blown.
