    2012 Honda NC700X Non-DCT/ABS model ADV Build Southeast Ohio $5000

    Sorry I forgot I posted this on here. Any way not it did not. I should also point out that I have dropped the price to $5000 if that interests anyone. For future reference it might be best to send me a message as well as posting here so I can respond sooner. I am on here every day but I just...

    Live Work Wander: A couple traveling North America in a VW Syncro

    I recall seeing these two when they are on someone else's youtube channel in a 2wd westy. Then they started the new series with the syncro. For the most part I do enjoy all the vids they post because I am a Vanagon fan and I feel that their sense of humor is right up my alley. I also recall...

    2012 Honda NC700X Non-DCT/ABS model ADV Build Southeast Ohio $5000

    I have too many projects and can not afford to build them all so I need to prioritize. Unfortunately this is at the bottom of the project list so I have decided to get rid of it. 2012 NC700X 4500 miles Located in Athens, Ohio Anyone that cares about the NCX may have seen my build...

    HOLY CRAPOLY! Badlands 12000lb Winch on Sale for $290 !!!

    I have been noticing these for that price, have been tempted to get one and, after a bit of research, likely will. Other than the cheap tool haters' gripes, the only real complaint (if you wanna call it that) that I have seen is in relation to its duty cycle. People (arguably dumb people) try...

    Cummins 2.8L Diesel "Repower" engine kit

    Aahh yes I seemed to have overlooked that very important word in that statement. "Turn key" Well that makes it a little easier to swallow and if the $14-$15K DIY price point that was mentioned turns out to be true then that is certainly much more acceptable. Hell I might be able to build my...

    Cummins 2.8L Diesel "Repower" engine kit

    Ha! not going to get a lot of takers at that price point. Hell even the upper class folk that might be spending $100k on a rig are not likely to spend $30k on a crate engine alone. They are way out of the ball park if they think that regular people are going to pick one of these up to plop...

    Volkswagen Vanagon 4x4 Conversion.

    Ok. It appears on my end that that worked so now I need to work out the time to go back through and fix all the images in this thread. It may take a little time but hopefully I can wrap all that up with a juicy update. Stay tuned...

    Volkswagen Vanagon 4x4 Conversion.

    Well since I told Photobucket to go (expletive deleted) themselves it seems appropriate to find a new image hosting site. This is just a test to see if that works so don't get too excited. Here's muh air bags.

    Volkswagen Vanagon 4x4 Conversion.

    The last 4 weeks have been a bad time for me. Well not me so much but a bad time for the van. My wife and I have had a lot going on so garage time has been short. Not trying to make excuses but I changed jobs and have been getting settled in there. The holiday slowed things down some. We...

    Blender, My LX450/FZJ80 + FJ45esk + GM + Land Rover crazy concoction

    I don't want to clutter up this thread too much with my ramblings. I also ask that we not start a debate about this plasma cutter VS that plasma cutter but, since Metcalf has illustrated the value of some cheap tools, here is a little info on my "el cheapo supreme" plasma cutter. The cutter I...

    Blender, My LX450/FZJ80 + FJ45esk + GM + Land Rover crazy concoction

    Ha! What a coincidence. I bought the exact same air compressor this time last year during the fathers day sale. I coupled it with a $465 plasma cutter that I got for $320 on amazon and a year later they are both going strong.

    Blender, My LX450/FZJ80 + FJ45esk + GM + Land Rover crazy concoction

    Old Man Emu has a couple of part numbers that are close to that number. Part# 2615 is 20.07 inches (510mm) and has a 120 lb spring rate. Part# 2626 is 19.68 inches (500mm) and has the same 120 lb rate. I was eyeballing these springs for some time before I made the decision to run air bags...

    Volkswagen Vanagon 4x4 Conversion.

    Actually there is no reversal at the transmission or at the transfer case. There is a counter-shaft in the trans but it runs the front diff which is not used in my case. I originally planned on building a new gear and tail housing for the trans so I could move the output to the counter...

    Volkswagen Vanagon 4x4 Conversion.

    Hmm. Well now, not only do you have me a little concerned, I am a little excited to work on a new design. Initially I was going to have them cut from a solid piece of aluminum but the material alone was more money than I could spend at the time. I then tossed around an "I beam" type...

    Volkswagen Vanagon 4x4 Conversion.

    Are you referring to the thin section on top that I mentioned a while back and have since welded a 3/16 plate across the top of? or the bottom of the arm? Either way there is nearly a half inch of steel on the top and the bottom of that bushing. Do you think it should be thicker? To be...
