More sammi trouble

a couple of weeks ago i broke the 4 pins in the lockrite of the front 3rd member. yesterday i got it all put back together. now it doesnt seem like the locker is working at all. i can jack up either side, and the wheel will spin with hubs locked in. it makes a popping sound in the 3rd too. what the hell!!!!!!! i set the 3rd up with the proper backlash and case spread, and put it back together according to the directions. obviously, i did something wrong, any ideas?

Superlift Off Road Park

Superlift Off Road Park

My dad’s birthday and fathers day are always really close together so this year we took him on a trip to celebrate. We went to Superlift off road park in Hot Springs Arkansas this year and had a great time. The park is good sized with lots of trails that are very well marked. There is a wide variety of trails ranging from easy to hard.

They are rated from 1 (easy) to 5 (super hard). We started out on the 2′s, then the 3′s but found out quickly that the 4′s were best suited to dad’s JK rubicon on 35′s. For our last trail we attempted one of the easier 5 rated obstacles and were looking good but after a hard bounce there was a strong gas smell that persisted for the next 10 or 15 mins and we took that as a sign to back off of the obstacle.

We had a great time but by now it was 101 degrees and we were hot as hell so at about 3:00 we went in town and rented a Ski Barge. It was brand new, we were the first ones to take it out. It had a 150 HP Honda VTEC engine and moved along pretty good.

We had a blast! Michael, Chris, Dad, and I hadn’t been on the water together for over 18 years. It was just like old times…

In car camera

This is the camera that they use to record some of the cool in car stuff you see on you tube. I’m sure with some duct tape and bungees we can get the same effect with our cameras.

Rearview Mirror Glue Scam?

Rearview Mirror Glue Scam?

This is not really much of a 4×4 tech thread but it is on a 4×4 and it is sort of “tech.”

Sometime while I was in crapistan the rear view mirror fell off of my sweet chevy K2500 and I finally got around to fixing it. For some reason when I was in Autozone I saw the $3.96 price tag on some Loctite brand “Mirror Adhesive” and decided I really didn’t need a rear view mirror that bad. Believe it or not, this was the least expensive option to reattach a mirror available at Autozone. Surely this glue (and the rubbing alcohol, err…

I mean magic blue “primer/cleaner”) is nothing special. Everyone even remotely interested in models or R/C airplanes knows that there is really only one active ingredient in any glue that comes in a tube that small: cyanoacrylate (or CA). So at Wal-Mart I saw this off-brand super glue for $.97 which (as the warning label assured me) was pretty much pure CA.

Also notice that this bargain price was for FOUR tubes of glue. At this price I couldn’t afford not to give it a shot- worst case scenario is I wind up with some super glue.

Back at home, Bailee (my daughter) and I were busy with surgical masks and safety goggles donned boiling up experimental magic blue primer/cleaner potions in a cauldron when something caught my eye on top of the fridge. These “Kendall” brand alcohol wipes are everywhere in my house (Kelley Octave is a nurse so they wind up in all of her pockets).

As far as I am concerned it should be illegal to sell super glue without these things because it has been years since I even thought about not cleaning a soon-to-be-super-glued surface with one. Anyway, I used the alcohol wipe (ed. note: you could probably just use some rubbing alcohol and a non-greasy paper towel) and about 1/14th of a drop of glue (which I determined was about .00004 cents worth) and the picture speaks for itself.

For all the other cheap bastards out there, I will keep you informed if I have a premature mirror falling off incident. Bailee and I ran the Chevy over the speed bump at about 30mph 3 or 4 times and that didn’t take it off so I think it’s good.


Offset Rear Axle

Offset Rear Axle

Does anyone know of an offset type rear axle I could use in the sambuggy project. Even with the motor cocked in there crooked the rear d-shaft clearance is pretty tight. I know a full width 9″ could be cut down on one side and that would give me at least a 6″ offset (which would be sufficient).

I was hoping someone knew of some type of toyota axle that might have an offset or perhaps one that is full width and could be cut down on one side.

I have fought with this problem in my head for over a week and finally determined I could solve the problem by just using another toy front axle in back (and I have plenty of them). I REALLY do not want that weight but If I had to cut down a 9″ or something like that I don’t think I would be much better off in the weight department. My plan would be just to lock out the knuckles for now but the rear steer option would be there.

I figured I would post this up since someone might know of a perfect option.
