What Barbs said.

It’s all coming together bit by bit. I wish my projects moved this quickly!

Keep up the good effort, don’t get distracted with the upcoming snow season ;) ;)

Thanks for the update with pics!

Cheers

“Chat” fest tomorrow! It’s usually the Spud fest but because of a reduced crowd number and not all of the usual features of the spud fest they’re calling it the chat fest this year. Clever.

Awesome day out if anyone that’s near Trentham (or “Tren-am” to those from the surrounding area) and can make it. There’s some good roads out there to drive too, but I dare say they’re all 80km/h now :(

^ Ben speaks the truth! Make sure you have drinks on hand during photos ;) You can thank me later.

In reply to my gearbox being like the jigsaw puzzle of Jase’s Gemini’s engine:

Whut? It pisses oil out of the half moons no matter what you use to seal those stupid things!?


No, in that at least three gearboxes went into making my one box - it’s an L series AWD locking centre diff with phase 2 front cases and drive gears from a SG forester, custom 4.111:1 diff ratio mod, OBX Torsten front LSD, L series 1.59:1 (the best possible) low range, oil feeders over the low range gears to keep them cool and the wrong 5th ratio from a phase 1 gearbox. It revs too high for my liking at 100km/h - but is great when the L series is fully loaded. The EJ22 powers along no issue!

No oil leaks... so maybe it’s not like a Gemini’s engine then. But the EA82 has a lot in common with it!

Can’t believe hump day is basically over. This week will be over tomorrow... mind you, this term already feels like it’s been 6 weeks long. The full moon yesterday didn’t help either (no joke!!).

16 years of daily thrash driving, can’t complain about that!! Put Ruby Scoo to shame - she did about 12 years of solid daily driving with loads of off-roading in between after extensive mods. My gearbox is like your Gemini’s engine... but the engine is an off the shelf EJ22, nothing to sneeze at in that body though! Now she’s laid up waiting for exhaust repairs and for me to put her interior back in before a long overdue drive...

Nice one, looks pretty tidy!

Do you ever find yourself pining over it?
