Man. Glad you are OK, that must have been a sphincter-slipper!!Went swimming last Friday. Actually on the "high"way. Torrential rainfall had washed grass onto the road, it was night and what looked like wet pavement was about 10" deep of grass/leaves etc and water. Went from 40 MPH to 15 fast enough to trigger the seatbelt lock and cause a good bit of retention of my upper body mass. Took three cycles of the wipers to clear the windshield. Massive adrenaline dump. No hydroplaning, the Cooper Maxx STs have awesome wet grip.
No sheet metal redesign, nothing harmed. Just finished cleaning out the debris from the truck. The water did a great job cleaning the mud and grease from the transfer case.
It is indeed. We have a low water bridge near me that is underwater anytime the river rises. It used to be single lane, too. You just take turns. One dark evening a young girl (19, IIRC) tried to cross during a storm. She got swept off. She managed to call 911 as the car was going under. Pretty sad call.Moving water is deceiving stuff.
Looks really nice, Keith.On other CUCV accomplishments, I got my digital volt/ammeter mounted properly. ....
Here are the images. I think it turned out pretty professional.
Oh, Lord, that is so sad. I am sorry.It is indeed. We have a low water bridge near me that is underwater anytime the river rises. It used to be single lane, too. You just take turns.

I agree. I have seen that on a few. They have withstood a lot of years and vibration in that time. I had a few come apart in pieces and send the pieces thru the case/bell housing. Minor blemish. Replaced the flex plate and moved on. Easy way to change flex-plate with one man and no removal or lowering of transmission/transfer case. Coming soon to the Mr Rusty thread. Have a Great Day. Take advantage of the great weather. I will be today after work.Could be. Might just be age.
I would like to hear about your 4bt progress. That's the same idea I have. But im conflicted because there's a 7.3 sitting in my barn not doing anything.Brought home another project. A 1984 M1009 without a complete engine that will make a great canidate for a Cummins 4BT transplant (happen to already have one from a Frito Van )
