Are you still wheeling Samurais these days? I still have a few in the yard and I work on others for my friends from time to time.
Do you remember that rear end I got from you that was poured with aluminum? My brother ran it for years until his son blew his engine up. I got that Samurai back and sold it to a friend along with an engine as a project. He decided to swap in an open differential because he was driving it on the road and he gave that one back to me. I installed it in another buddys rig to replace differential he completely grenaded 3 or 4 years ago and it is still going strong.That was bound to have been 15 years ago or more.
15 man I bet it was ever bit of 20 years ago lol.. I try To keep wheeling them but I build them and someone offers me way to much money and I sell them. Currently don’t have one nor have I found one worth buying I’m not gonna spend what some people are willing to pay for them these days . And as far as I no ever third diff I poured with aluminum is still going.. good to here from you buddy
It very well could have been 20 years ago... I still have 3 EFI model Samurais, a 1991, 1992, & 1993. I have owned the 1993 over 20 years. It is mildly lifted and locked with 31 inch Swampers & an 8v 1.6 with factory EFI. The '91 and '92 are mostly stock. I am finishing up a 1988.5 project to sell to a buddy for a hunting rig. I hang on to the EFI models when I get one. I did sell one '91 that I had owned for 15 years to my uncle who had been wanting to buy one for years.
Nice to hear you are still vertical. Take care of yourself.
I'm still around so far. I just bought another bone stock 88.5 fixer upper three days ago. The next day I had it sold (after I finish a few needed repairs) for a hunting rig. Good to hear you have kept yours.
