    Chitown WaGN....project from hell

    Oh, the royal piss bag, and the steel intercooling piping really makes it look, well, like shit. Pistol grip will make it look like mexican diarrhea. You will love it when rust scale starts entering that pos 'meracan pig-iron V8-2.

    Gordo's X8 Ramblings

    Guess it's about time I do a build thread instead of throwing out bits of my stuff everywhere else. It's not going to be in any fucking order. I will post my currant accomplishments, and fill in once in a while with past doings. Just finished building my X8 clutch master cylinder, 3/4" bore to work with my Coleman coaxial throw-out bearing set-up. Rue enlightened me on the 5/8" bore master being a little on the weak side for dislacement. Trouble is, the run of the mill 3/4" masters here have the wrong reservoir for the X8. I know people cram them in, but I wanted the long angled reservoir that belongs on an X8 (same as the IS300 / Mk4 Supra). So after hours of surfing, I found that the Land Criusers in other parts of the world have the correct style of reservoir mount, and are 3/4" bore. So I found one, that is aluminum, and changed out the plastic from one of my spare IS masters. Had to make a spacer for the front, so that it would mount correctly, and used a 5mm stainless shcs, instead of the roll pin that comes from Toyota.

    By just purchasing it legally, I'm already on the list kept by the zombie government stooges, to be sent to a re-education camp. The only way to safely own any firearm, is to steal it.

    By the way, my son walked into the room as I'm drooling over shots of your interior, and was liking it, then was amazed when I told him it is an actual drift car. He is so used to seeing clapped out S-chassis...

    You could adapt the open vent hole on the passenger side dash to hold vomit bags in case a passenger is not up to entering a corner at 100 kph, sideways ☺️

    Sorry, but not much happening on the 4 wheel front. I have been making a lot of mods to my Armalite... Because it's 'merica's' rifle. Because it's 'Modular'. Actually because any AR is a total piece of shit....Held together with cotter pins & roll pins, out of plastic & aluminum. Wish the fuck I never bought one, and will never buy another. The 'Modular' thing is total bull shit, a million aftermarket parts available, few actually fit, or work, 2 out of 3 are made in that shit hole that gave us covid. I cut the retarded carry handle off, and made it into flat top Converted it to having a side charging handle to get rid of the stupid T-handle pull string, like some toy I had when I was a kid. How the thing looked back in May. A lot changed since then, different stock, trigger guard, gas block, muzzle break, and a lot of internal changes with the buffer design, weight, springs. By the way, this isn't a little pussy .223 AR15 either, it's a .308. I know, nobody comes here for this shit either.

    Don't think the 1-piece is the issue, I have had a one piece steel shaft made for me by the Driveshaft Shop back in the mid '90s, and never hurt my trans. Maybe who ever you bought it from was the issue....Who was that ?

    Curse of the Cressida

    Wish I had time to do something on my stuff.... Damn 12 hour shift at a job 35 miles away is keeping everything in limbo. After the psycho woman tried to kill me, and totaled my beloved '73 Datsun, what time I do have is taken up by keeping the el cheapo daily driver junk running. I should just fucking retire, so I can get back to my numerous projects.

    If it's just a score or two, polish up the yoke, and insert it. If there is a lot of slop, the tail housing is toast, but if it has normal side to side movement, run it.

    The Mazda guys are lucky, someone makes a roller bearing to fix that issue. Looked at one of my W58 builds to see if it would be possible, but there isn't enough material in the housing to machine it large enough for an off the shelf bearing. It could be saved by machining another sleeve bearing from bronze to replace the original pressed in one, but not cost effective if you don't have a buddy that owns a machine shop. To avoid having that happen again, that area has to be super clean, the yoke bearing surface 100% free of nicks or rust pits, and a lot of grease on installation.

    1st, are you out of adjustment on the master cylinder push rod ? Or maybe have the wrong push rod ? Simple fix.... Never heard of anyone adding a master cylinder spacer to cure a push rod issue.... 2nd, put the damn rear seat down and load the weight farther forward. I can see the front is sitting higher due to all the weight being behind the rear axle. Carried more weight than that in my '76 Corona wagon.

    Nice find ! Just took the number, and found it on eBay for $40 less, from 100% feedback seller. Was dreading running new brake lines for my compound brake system using the $50 flaring set that I have.
