over the past few days i've been working over a driveshaft spacer that was made for a sammy.
i had to reduce thickness and "machine" a new countersink for the shaft end.
this was pretty much "hand crafted" using some primitive tooling, but only we know that.
i only wanted 5/8".

this looks better to me. i still have about 1" before it bottoms out.

still mulling over the roof and back window thing.
mabe i can get one more season out of the rag.

i may have found a transfer case to play with. if it comes to pass, then i'll be looking for some new gearing for it.
gee- that'll require more "machine" work.

Driveshaft depth looks better!!

Does PetroWorks, or similar company, supply crawler gears for the Sidekick, too?

yeah russell, it looks better to me also.
i used to wonder how close i was to dropping the shaft.
now i'll wonder how far i'm jamming it in.

there are gear sets available(calminus, trail rough, hawk, rocky road?) for +-$650.

not, however, for suzi's t.case. apparently the case is too thin to fit the bigger gearing.

i've heard a later case will bolt up to her transmission.
i'm gonna find out.

if it does, i'll probably do it.
it's only money.

not like much will happen soon, but today i recieved a transfer case('93) that should fit suzi the psychic and should be modifyable(is that a word?) to accept gearing.
a new toy to play with.

Dang, Richard, I just found this thread. I'll be watching for further progress and hope we can make a run at some point before the end of April when I head South. Let me know if I can lend a hand in any way...

Yep, we're officially SoCal bound. We made an offer on a
place in San Marcos, so we're waiting to hear how the
approval from the seller's bank pans out. I have to relieve
my predecessor at the end of April, and the turnover
period will be about two weeks long. I graduate on March
28th, but I have to fly to Europe to give briefs on my
research/modeling effort at some point.

We'll work out a time, I'm sure. In the mean time, if you
need someone to hand you wrenches, and whatnot, let
me know...

looks like i have a free weekend coming up here(feb.13-14).
i have a friend w/some property n/w of jackson i want to visit.
just the excuse i needed to run suzi and see how recent tweaking holds together.
i'm thinking of running east to see where the snow is at this time. wonder if emmigrant is clear enough from hwy88 to hwy50(i've only seen the intersection at hwy88).
i hope to make a more involved(but still exploratory) run mid march to the e f carson, just to see how far i can get.
probably too early from the west- may have to come thru nevada?
we'll see- i may have work schedule problems for march and april.........


screwed up on the dates- should have been feb12-13.
gotta work on monday + it's valentines day!

all went well.
spent saturday playing in the stream, hiking, and shots of jack on my friend's property.
sunday was spent finding the snow level on hwy88, to get an idea re:next month. from what i found @ 6000', i will have to reconsider my half baked plans. gonna be another 4' added this week(and mabe as low as 3000').
tried to get past the bear river reservoir to work west(looked possible on my maps), but was stopped by a gate.
i guess that was to prevent people from pulling a donner party thing.
didn't stretch suzi much, but got her good and muddy.
the power steering is awsome.
made new tracks on my maps.
