    Haha. I’ve learned a ton from that channel. By the third clip I was like 4 beers deep. I filmed another ending showing me organize things into bags but I let the first one ride.

    I started pulling out the seals yesterday and what a PITA!!! I got most on one side but I’m just gonna let the machine shop do it next week when they clean the head. Lil extra money to keep my sanity. I’m sure if I cleaned the oil off it’ll be way easier but whatevs.

    Ordered Supertech valve seals. Darton emailed me saying they’re opened and back in business. I’m gonna call them Monday and see when I can take the block in. Things are gonna get serious here hopefully soon.

    Did you caressed the box, took your time cutting it open and had your cigarette afterward?

    Looking forward seeing your upcoming projects !

    Bolts and pilot bearing came in. I might order a pack of five pilot bearings cause the sight I got it from is having a deal. Crazy I’ve been ordering from these guys for like 10 years and turns out they’re 20 minutes away from me haha. FED005D8-DEE3-4ED6-AB8E-9CEB6D9DD4D4.jpeg

    Yea I’m gonna ask @fahnix if he wants to make one( he’s gonna help me). As far as I know there’s no full video on how to swap a tranny/clutch on a 9 th start to finish so I might do it.

    ordered the plm rigid collars yesterday. I’m hoping they get here on time.

    for you @bauer311.... anything.

    oh yeah, let's do it. There seems to be a real lack of how to videos for 9th gen stuff period.
