    My Next Project: 1965 Sunbeam Alpine

    I hear ya. We just had a pretty unpleasant phone call. I drove it into the shop but it sounds like it will not drive out of the shop. Bringing a trailer..... And my body guard.

    My Next Project: 1965 Sunbeam Alpine

    On a whim I dropped by the shop yesterday on my way home from work, about 4pm. I called and sent him a text. Neither got returned. I waited for a while. There was two cars in the parking lot. The normal black pickup and a small car. After waiting a while the door opened and a girl came out. I...

    Forrest Fenn's Treasure Hunt

    My thoughts on this: His whole purpose in doing this is to get people outside and exploring. So I believe one of two things. 1. It’s a hoax. If it was real it would get found and then people would stop going outside to look for it. That’s not what he would want to have happen. 2. It’s real...

    Forklift Stinger Engineering

    So it looks like my two best options as far as availability are: 4" OD x .226 wall DOM 4" OD x .318 wall DOM The price difference between the two for all the material I need is $320. The other issue is that the lengths are 21 feet, so I need to weld on a 3' section. Those wall thicknesses...

    Forklift Stinger Engineering

    Dutchman, Thanks for that. I don't notice any defection with the stinger we have now. You're thinking there could be over 60" of bend? Am I reading that right?

    Forklift Stinger Engineering

    We want to make this one actually have two stingers instead of just one, so we were just looking at making it a bit lighter weight if possible. We have hundreds of these coils we need to move around. The stinger can't be any shorter as we can't have the coils hanging off the ends.

    Forklift Stinger Engineering

    The coils are always fully seated. Any that hangs off the end can bounce around like a slinky and would risk getting bent out of shape. I found out the actual coil we are building these for weigh 636 pounds each. I'm liking 4" DOM with 1/4" wall. But I'm totally guessing. Looks like I'll need to...

    Forklift Stinger Engineering

    Ok all you mechanical engineers. Here's a problem for you. I need to make a forklift stinger to transport rebar coils around a job site. The stinger tube will project 22 feet past the box structure for the forks. The weight will be equally distributed across the 22 feet of the projection at 1000...

    2019 EJS picture (and story) thread

    So it was a guy driving, but a lady recovering? Was she in the Jeep or maybe she got ran over?

    My Next Project: 1965 Sunbeam Alpine

    I’ll be going over the car with a fine tooth comb before taking delivery. Not sure what to do if I find anything I don’t like. It’s not like I would leave it there if I had the opertunity to get it out of there. Oh, and I left another voicemail at about 1230. Never returned.

    My Next Project: 1965 Sunbeam Alpine

    So I called him just before I left work and it went to voicemail. Then when I pulled into the driveway I called again. Voicemail again. This time I left a message saying he has 5 minutes to call me back or I was going to go on with my plans for the night. He actually called me back! He told me...

    My Next Project: 1965 Sunbeam Alpine

    Got a good update a few minutes ago from John. So if you recall, the last time I was there and saw it was May 5th. He said it would be done the next day, Monday. So I called him Monday and he told me the trunk lid topper needed to be redone and it would be finished on Tuesday. Then he went...

    General Tech Jeep/Dodge's ZF 8HP 8 speed automatic transmission

    There are a couple tuners out for the transmission. I haven't heard anything thing about how the tuning works in 4 low though. Highway driving is a huge improvement though as it holds gears longer before a downshift.

    Making adult friends

    I always thought it odd as a kid that my dad never really hung out with any friends. He was always just doing what we were doing. As an "adult" now with my own kids I have realized that my kids are the people I want to hang out with. My oldest is 14 so they are still a bit young, but I'm doing...

    My Next Project: 1965 Sunbeam Alpine

    Glad I didn't change my plans on saturday. He never contacted me. Or Sunday. Or Monday. I got pretty sick Saturday night and was out of it through yesterday. At some point yesterday John sent me a text saying Andy said today whenever I get off work. So I'll call him this afternoon and see what...

    My Next Project: 1965 Sunbeam Alpine

    Love it. I’ll be sharing that with Andy today when I don’t get the car. We have a busy day today so I don’t think I could get it even if it is ready.

    Jeep Wrangler JL/JT EcoDiesel discussion; 2nd Gen engine with fixes?

    FYI, we are slowly getting reports of 2018 rams loosing engines. It would apear that the issues has not been corrected and probably the reason why a 2019 is not available yet with the eco. If the Jeep is close to coming to market (I don’t know. Haven’t been watching) I wouldn’t buy one until the...
