Been a while since I posted, went on a much needed vacation. Rented a 12 passenger van and took my son, 2 daughters, their boyfriends, grand daughter and mother in law on a 10.5 day camping trip. We went to Capulin Volcano, camped 2 nights in Colorado Springs and went up Pikes peak and through Garden of the Gods, then Camped at Dinosaur national park, at Lunch at Red Iguana in SLC on the way to Craters of the Moon in Idaho where we camped another night. Spent 3 nights camping in Yellowstone with a short trip up into Montana. Then on to Devils Tower where we camped another night. Then to Deadwood, Sturgis, Mt Rushmore and camped the last night at the Badlands national park. Had a great trip and some much needed down time. Came back and still no engine ready. Been working on things around the farm.

Last week was stressful, thursday the company I work for laid off 1/3 of it's people at the Tulsa office or about 100 people. 131 people total laid off and another 30 positions were nixed that people had already left and won't be filled. I'm safe and actually got a retention bonus to stay through Feb of next year, but stressful all the same.

Wife and I've really started talking about downsizing the farm, her getting her compact nursing license and hitting the road since I can work anywhere I have an internet connection and travelling some. Don't know if we will actually do it or not, but we are seriously thinking about it.

On the truck, ran into head issues with the valves not sealing so we had to send it off to the machine shop to get the valves done on it. Got it back and there isn't enough clearance between the valves and pistons so I ordered a .020 thicker head gasket today. Should be here Weds. So still not sure when I'm going to get to go racing. Seems like there is one thing or another that keeps popping up. I did get the graphic on the new carbon fiber grill this weekend.

Been a long while since I've made a post to update on the truck. Been busier than a one legged man in an ass kicking contest. I took over as Commander at my American Legion post mid July and feel like I've lived there since then. Been working on getting things done and fixed there. Finished up the flooring in the main hall and got a good portion of the flooring down in the kitchen last night.

Started making some cornhole sets, one for me and one to donate to the legion so we can try a cornhole tournament as a fund raiser. Almost have them finished. Just need to attach the legs after the paint drys and then skin the tops with the skins I bought.

Bought a new Harley a month ago and been riding it as much as possible. Managed to put 1000 miles on it before I had to buy the tag for it. It's a 2018 Limited Ultra. Nice riding bike. Still can't get used to the fans running after I shut it down to cool the heads.

Now to the truck. Machine shops suck. I've had a crank and block ruined by one machine shop. The 2nd machine shop took 2 weeks longer than they said they would. I'm slowly getting it assembled here at the shop. Still waiting on a few parts that I should have gotten with the engine parts but still haven't gotten them. Tonight I finished torquing down the head and installed a few more things on it. All the drive train is in the truck now, and my drive shafts fit like a glove. Made the 2nd loop for the front drive shaft and attached it to the custom trans brace I made.

Most of the wiring is done and hooked up in the truck, just need to finish my piping to finish with the sensors. Moved my driveline speed sensor to the front flange of the tcase. Made a new tach sensor mount to work with the 4 magnets I glued into the Fluidamper balancer.

The season is almost over. 2 more races this year and one is this weekend. Won't make it but hopefully I can make the last race of the year.

Been about a month since I last made a post, made a little progress on my truck, but haven't touched it in the last 2 weeks. Been dealing with my bull deciding it's an escape artists. He now has an appointment with the processor on Oct 9th...

Decided to go ahead and start building my steel pipe corral because he destroyed the gate on my temp one I use trying to pen him up overnight. I have posts in for 2 outer walls of the corral, once I get them complete, I will tear out the old fence in that corner and build those sections out as well, then finish building the inside pens. The outer perimeter of it is going to be around 90x70 feet with 4 different sized pens inside it with a crowding pen and diverter gate for loading or to my chute in the center. I'm building it out of 2 7/8" pipe posts I bought at an auction several years ago for this purpose and welding more pipe between the posts and cattle panels/solid panels for the alleys.


Finished up the cornhole sets, they turned out decent, not as good as I wanted but they will work.

Made quite a few changes on the bike, now have 2k+ miles on it. We rode it to Dodge City, KS and back, little over 600 miles round trip and had a blast. Planning a longer trip in Oct if the weather holds out.

On the truck, head is torque down, valve covers on, injectors installed, exhaust manifold installed, intake installed, injection pump mostly installed, power steering pump installed, air shut off valve is installed along with the activation cable. Had to trim more out of the firewall to fit the valve and cable. Got the modified power steering/hydro brakes installed as well.

Finished making the tongue for my welding trailer yesterday so I can pull it with my 4 wheeler. Pretty simple. Piece of 2" square tubing, hole drilled in one end for a pin to connect it to the receiver box on the trailer and a u end for the 4 wheeler side to pin it to the hitch.

Last weekend we built a float for the legion for the pioneer day parade. Pulled it with my Dually. Dad asked who's truck we were pulling the trailer with because he didn't recognize my truck as it was actually white and not dirt colored.

Been a long while since I posted on here, today is the first day I've had time to go out to the shop and actually work on the truck.

Wife and I took a 1900+ mile bike ride at the end of Oct with the furthest point being Pensacola, FL. Had a blast and we are planning another long ride for this summer. Between work (I'm now the only data guy and officially the Data Architect now as well as janitor and bottle washer since I'm now the only one left on the project.), Being commander of the legion, getting a rider's chapter going for the legion, fundraisers, etc.. and building a corral out of pipe on the farm, oh and playing with my new 3d printer, I haven't had much chance to get out in the shop to work on projects.

Corral is coming along, finally have all the old bit of the original corral removed, and my new outer portion built out of 2 7/8" pipe. Starting to build the interior portion of the pens and working alley. Goes slow with just me doing everything.

Today on the truck, got the oil pump installed, made a kdp tab, torqued down the ppump gear, installed the front cover along with the crank seal. Also put the damper on and torqued it down along with my tach sensor. Not a lot but atleast it's something.

Starting to think about maybe going to twins for the truck. Right now I have an S366 with billet wheel and race cover that needs rebuilt, an S475/87 t4 with billet wheel and race cover and an S480/96 t6. Had issues spooling up the s480 before but think I was just hammering too much fuel to get it lit. Anyone have thoughts on a good combo for what I have?

The d printer products are insane! I've heard of them but have never been around one or seen any of their products. What are the products made out of? Very cool stuff!

I'm just using PLA right now with is a biodegradable plastic. But my printer can do many different types of plastic including ABS once I build an enclosure for it.

Haven't done a lot to the truck, since it's been colder than a well diggers hind end out last couple of days I've been out in the shop in the evenings. Spent most of the time cleaning up the shop for a legion riders cookout we are have there in 2 weeks, but I went to move the truck out of the 1st bay and ran into an issue. I have always just picked up the back of the truck up with my cherry picker and swung it around 90 degrees to move it around in the shop. Moving the weight back worked, the cherry picker wouldn't pick it up high enough to get the wheels off the ground. Ended up calling my son and had him help after I used a jack to pickup the rear of it to rotate it and move it over to it's winter spot. While I had him there I also hung up the old bedsides and grill on the wall for a little shrine.

I did get the new fuel lines bent (think I did a horrible job), and on the truck. They will work, but you can tell it's the first set I've bent.

Also test fit the hood on the front after putting the engine in and hooking things up. Ran into a few fitment issues that I need to trim a couple of places to make it fit and pin on.

Bought another project a little over a week ago. A 2002 Newmar Kountry Star 38' diesel pusher with 2 slides. We took it out last weekend and stayed in at the Casino where we had the state legion winter conference. Worked out great, found a few other little things that I needed to modify or fix on it, but drove great and kept us warm in the 20 degree nights, and didn't freeze up with water in the tanks. Bought it from an elderly couple that took really good care of it, just needs some things done and some modernization. Installing a new radio in it, usb charger ports, new water pump, and I need to replace the weather cracked tires on it. Going to look at a motorcycle trailer tomorrow to tow behind it so we can take the Harley with us on trips.

Now I need to build an extension on the end of my shop to house the new toy and some other things. Think I'll make the extension 24 or so feet wide x 40' deep.
