NE guys...wrenching session 4/24 or 4/25

Well i'm still planning on getting started this weekend. Draining fluids, disconnecting plugs, cutting the old exhaust and such. We'll see how far I get. I'll be stripping the Toyota truck as well this weekend. So if anyone was planning on coming please let me know.

I'm still going to need people for helping me with the engine swap and yota conversion. So I was wondering if people could make a wrenching session in two weeks? April 24 or 25th or both days. A saturday and sunday. Whichever works. I know I'll need some welding done and I'm still trying to locate an engine hoist.


Thanks,

Koko

Well as I'm only a few miles away I think I could do something on that Saturday.

My 'wrenching skills' are weak, but I'd be happy to come by and help in any way I can--at least cheering on the crew if nothing else--or making a beer run as needed.

I dont know what Im doing that wekend Koko but if I am free I will try to get out there to lend a hand. Like vlodnak I am not a superwrencher, but I can probably be of some use somehow. Extra hands help a lot, I know that from all the fab fests on my rig (s).

I will be able to come one of the days. I will try to co-ordinate with Daxe and we will cruise out together.
(My wife is having surgury this week) I have next week off for my wrenching so I should be sick of my junk by then. (And hopfully mostly done!)

Koko, Keep us posted on progress. I can't come that weekend but maybe the following one I can swing up on the Sunday. Jim

Most rent-all type places have them. Yellow pages under tool rental. Jim
