Re: Anybody Use Ham Radio?

Haven't really talked over the radio yet and not established a frequency to have any contacts, either uncertain or just not much for talking over the radio. Fairly sure things will change, just have...

Re: Western WA

I'll be out of doing any trips for a while, looks like the radiator needs to be cleaned up and cracks repaired. Got a constant leak on the custom fit radiator, might consider upgrading to the...

Re: GoPro time!!!

Having way too much fun with it now, attached it up to the glider and didn't have too many issues, just with getting the autopilot functions to work right. As for the camera, looks like the battery...

Picked up the GoPro2 with the wi fi backpack for $200 package deal, man the price has come down since the 3 came out. Even picked up a 32Gb class 10 sd card for it for $49. Got out with my rc motor...

Re: PNW Centralia Meet mid October?

Might have to give this one a pass for now, nailing down a fuel system issue and too many projects to get caught up on. I try to set aside some time if there is a meet around the New years...

Re: Fuel Pump

Not too familiar with the 2001 series, but just had to purchase a new frame rail fuel pump for mine. Not sure whether yours would have one if you're running a single pump. Do you have a Haynes or...

Re: 1987 ranger 4 cyl. to v8

If you need any further info on this, got plenty from gutting out an 86 Mustang gt with the T5 on my Cardomain pages. Used a Willwood pull type slave cylinder attached to the belhousing to the...

Re: Soft clutch pedal

Re: V8 ranger

Definitely agree with the motor and drivetrain swap. If you have the complete Explorer, most of the hardwork is done. All the electronics need to go with it, may take some time but much less hassle...
