Wife's mini me aka tink
« on: August 11, 2019, 06:30:24 PM »

A few years ago I bought my wife a Samurai. Wasn't bad, just rusty as hell. It's an earlier 88. She wheeled the hell out of it in our local blow sand dunes. Stock it was a goat.
Well one day she let her daughter drive it to work. Carnage ensued. The front u-joint on the jack shaft let go at 60mph.
Ripped a hole in the trans and the tunnel is ripped on both sides.

I decided since it was down, it's time for up grades. So last weekend I started the tear down. Off came the fenders, the the engine. Finally removed the tub. Left with a roller and that was it.
Used the crane off the service truck. Made light work on a hot day.

Holy crap, Nag. You ain't screwing around.
Should be quite the rig when you are done.

I hope so... Got to run the fuel lines before I put the other tub.

Right now sitting in a freshly pained frame is a Rebuilt Trans, my spare race engine, and my 4.19 T-case.
