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.
