    I got it going again. Made it flagstaff for the night.


    The whole issue was kinda my fault. A couple days ago I started hearing a clicking from the drivers cv shaft at full lock. So I just ordered a shaft from the parts store. Well it showed up the day before I had to leave. No time to install. I just figured the old one isnít clicking bad it should be able to make it. I could just pick up another shaft for a junk yard in Phoenix and save a few bucks. I was wrong. The clicking got worse on the drive then finally at Gallup New Mexico the boot had blown all the grease out. That made me real nervous. The drive between I-40 and Phoenix is pretty demanding on cars. (Think tail of dragon at 80-90mph with rock faces on one side and shear drop offs on the other side. Not the best place for a axle to snap. I did make sure I brought all the tools I needed to change it out. What I wasnt expecting was all the fluid to blow out the output shaft when I pulled the axle. Normally a little would pour out. Not this time all of it came out. I put 1 1/2 quarts back into it.

    Overall it only took me about 45 minutes to change the shaft out. A good part of the was trying to fill the tranny back up. Me being cheap lost me an hour of drive time and more on the motel room.

    Wrapped up my homebrew short throw shifter. No welding, used a hacksaw and a nice set of files. Took me about 8 hours or so of adjusting and fiddling to get it all together. Now that I have one to go off of, probably would take 3-4 hours with a hacksaw and file set, maybe about 1-2 hours with a cut off wheel and grinder. I wanted to try to do it with basic tools to see if it can be done, and it can be. The only modification that was required to make it fit the shift cables was to drill through the end of the main shift bushing (forward/back movement) to allow a sleeve and bolt to run through, and then cutting the little end piece off of the secondary (side to side) shift bushing. After the modifications they can still be used with the standard shifter, and stay put. Throws are about 2.5 inches side to side, and about 3.5 inches forward and back. I kept the same height as the stock shifter, but had to cut the shaft and make the new flat spots to compensate for raising the shifter upwards. It works well and was cheap.

    It looks half decent, and could actually be converted back to standard if needed. Its under the console now, but has to come out soon as I need to trim some of it to make my new shift boot idea to fit properly. I still have yet to figure that one out. When I take it back out I will post some pictures.
    I wanted it to look stock when assembled, and I think it will.

    I swapped my front turn signals in my 01 SW2 for LEDs and bought a new flasher relay to prevent hyper flashing (I didn't feel like modifying the existing one).

    While I'm sure people could easily find the correct parts on their own, I'll attach a picture showing the upgrade parts I used. Works flawlessly!

    Traded my 97 SW2 and my 04 Mountaineer in for an 04 Toyota Sequoia.
    I was tired of spending the small amount of free time i had working on my car instead of with my family. Plus i needed something the 5 of us could fit in.

    There was an intake camshaft actuator sitting on my desk this morning. One of the tech's did and engine swap and pulled one out the old 3.6 LY7 he was removed. I was able to take it apart and verify that the intake does actually retard when I command oil pressure to it....despite the MS reading that it advances. So now I know what the hell my camshafts are doing.

    Drove my car almost 200mi today to correct a ticket I got on Christmas Eve for tails out... had to strip off the tint (plasti-dip) which took 3.5hr... after I got home I checked tire pressure and noted that it had dropped to like 46-47#, so I drug out the compressor and ran them back up...

    Prob averaging 45-48mpg this tank due to highway miles instead of two lane but it isnít too bad for winter time lol

    The front speakers were blown out in the Sequoia we just got. I talked to some people on facebook and they linked me to some direct replacement speakers.

    They were not a direct fit.

    It took me almost 8 hours to make the adapter plates to get these to fit.


    I wish i had taken pictars, it was ugly.

    I finely got around to installing a subwoofer in the saturn. I get a new box last week off amazon. I went out in the garage last weekend to mount my sub and the foam surround was old and crappy. Ordered a new surround foam and glue that on yesterday. Placed the box in its place (its not screwed down yet...that is tomorrow), mounted the amp and ran all my wires. The old JL 10w3 still sounds great. Its getting to be around 20yrs old, had one build 8yrs ago and its second replacement foam surround yesterday. It has a bit of sag in the spider but it still sounds good.

    I got stopped by a couple of cops sitting at the entrance/exist to my dealership. They were very interested in what the hot rod had done to it.

    Full oil change, STP Extended life Oil filter 3614XL and STP High Mileage 5W30.

    Noticed the oil smells like gas but was not over full. probably a leaky injector? new or rebuilt? or rebuild my own? do they have rebuild kits ? suggestions?

    How many miles on that oil change?
    And for what its worth, lots of cold starts during cold weather would introduce more fuel into the oil.

    3,500 miles been about 1 year, yeah no life beyond work... this is my DD

    so I will assume that this is normal, as I said not much change in the level before the change so you may be right, cold starts.


    So glad this this does not burn or leak oil
