Since I'm off for the next two weeks, I decided to get the Club Bus going first before getting into the SC. The CB has been sitting in my driveway since mid May. :shock:

TO DO on the club bus before installing the engine.
- Clean engine bay of all grease and grime
- Install Hard Start Relay
- Install engine seals
- Install new Tranny and Engine Mounts
- Remove and Install tranny shaft seal
- Install engine (Maybe)


Once installed, I'll be breaking-in the engine and will get some much needed work on the interior done.

More on that HERE

I'll need help getting the engine out of the cargo area and onto a jack, before I'm ready to install the engine.

OK, time to call in SOME troops.
This Saturday (Don't know what time yet, I haven't asked my boss yet) we need to get the club bus engine installed and fired up.

The only thing I have yet to install before we get the engine in is the tranny mount, I may be able to do that sometime this week.

The club bus engine is IN the club bus, so really I just need someone to help me bring the engine down onto the jack and help me move the club bus into position on the driveway and that's it. I can do the rest.

We don't need an army of members, just one or two members(One to help, and one to tell us what we're doing wrong) :lol:


I also have Shawn's full length rack he won at FF15, that needs to be taken down as well(Heavy MoFo).


I know we all have BETTER things to do with our Saturdays but THIS NEEDS TO BE DONE.

The club bus has been sitting at my house since March and the drug dealers have told me that it's bringing their property values down. :grin: :lol:

Sorry man. I have to replace the clutch in my wife's car this weekend.

Tell you what, drag the club bus up to my house, I will do all the work myself if you help me change the clutch in my wife's car. Deal?
