Started on oil pump and timing chain .Pump was broken into 3 parts and timing chain was super lose.now just doing clean up and bolt her back together. 

 

Saw the pic you posted on instgram. No wonder you had low oil pressure.

Basically all holes are offset by a hair, but enough that the pin now can't thread all the way through. 

So, I have to either grind down the bolt heads... or enlarge the shackle mount hole. 

Or get some soft shackles...

Added some tow points to the rear today. Got these tabs from eBay for $25. I think the placement will work out ok. I would have preferred a spot in the middle, but it wasn't really going to work.a1c8242d0ccdaba53aa2ea6befbbda07.jpg49e445e44dea5899adec362bae10a79d.jpgae55b86a432d38a42cfac495dc567e4c.jpg7be7efc1d92518f4d35bc85940ae0247.jpgaa80a49ad7c53f6873d748185c6a78b1.jpg

Wish you could have gotten those more 'in-line' with the direction of pull.  I'm a bit worried that under heavy load they'll want to twist/tear out.  No doubt the part itself is more than strong enough, and the weld may also take the load fine, but the lever-arm could buckle the frame.

 

At that location I don't think you had much other options short of building up some significant structure, and most likely it'll be fine, but I'd keep an eye on the frame if you put a heavy load on those points.

I agree. I didn't see any better option with my set up though. I may be able to fab a gusset with some 1/4" I have laying around, but I'm not sure if it's needed. I'll probably just do it once football season is over and my sundays are open

Got off work a little early today and finished up the gussets on the tow points. Should be able to handle anything I can throw at it now, or at least I hope so. I guess my priorities go 1-football, 2-rover, 3-work?db89540af437603253dd3a11d50e4cfd.jpg5ad16629a054f8663762545a764cbb92.png

As an added bonus, that gusset will act as a slide to help prevent the tab from 'hooking' should you somehow manage to get a rock up there.

I finally got around to getting my dif guards back on last night!

Been a giant pita, should have just listened to Don and drilled the holes and retapped to a M10 vs messing with what we thought was M9 but turned out to be bsf 3/4 by 20.

I actually bought the bolts twice as I didn’t realize the first ones were 2”. So finally got them returned new 1” arrived this week.

Next time I’ll upgrade to a metric bolt...

I’m off the week of Christmas to new year’s, so I’ll find a day that works and come on down.
