Here's some pics from todays mod meet....

Harry brought me a little something for the garage.... Thanks Harry.


We started off with TurboAl's truck. The plan was to install a new electric fan but the nut that holds the clutch fan on was so mangled that from a shop that attempted to removed it that we could not even get a wrench on it. We have to get a new water pump and remove everything as an assembly. I've never seen a nut so fucked up. We agreed to regroup and tackle this at a later date when we have a new pump.


Next, we moved Mike's (TheFivedOutBoob) truck into the garage and replaced the water pump and installed a new Supermodulation eFan. That went smooth with zero problems.


Old vs new.

With new efan working on Mike's truck we replaced the burnt up electrical connection for the blower motor.

James tweaking the tune on Kyle's truck.


Later we did some work on Shaun's monster of a truck. We fixed an electric problem with his taillights. Water was getting into the tail light housing and freezing. We also adjusted the rear blocks for a better pinion angle.

Shaun's truck is so tall that it wouldn't fit under my garage door! The thing is a beast!




James' lovely wife made us a couple of trays of bake ziti for lunch. It was awesome and warmed up our bellies.


Some random pics from the day.




Kyle (kwon), Shauns (gway) and Al (TurboAl)

Shaun's won the tallest truck hands down.

We had planned to work on Mark's (gassey) truck today, but he was sick with the flu and spent the day in the E/R.

Hope your feel better Mark. We missed you.

Thanks to everyone the attended. It's always good to get together and hang out with my buds.

I wanted to get a side by side but we ran out of day light haha. We will have to next time.

I had a blast today. I did a good job at making sure my chair didn't get warm. Best seat in the garage all day.

I also am sorry I missed this :(. Family first though. Needed to continue work on my daughter's kitchen. She has been living in the house sine the end of November with no kitchen, tough when you have a 2 year old, so install was a priority for her. Next time though. Looked like you all had a great time.
