I was just thinking that same thing yesterday. I'm still working on my never-ending project.

I've seen and talked to Mark a few times, but mostly bmw stuff.

I've got a slow week at work again, so I should be able to get some work done on the bronco. Deer season makes weekend time hard to find, but the bronco at the lease would rule!

I still check the boards daily. Just nothing worth adding. Waiting to pull the engine on my thing right now.

I've reached my "sick of throwing parts into my break system" point.

Think it's time I put it in the shop. :S

I would love to show up to one. I haven't been to any meeting in a while. My bronco has been sitting in the garage with a blown exhaust manifold gasket.

Dropping the tank isn't hard to do and I actually have an efi fuel pump that might work

I've been at Ft. Leonard Wood, MO for 11 months now. Bronco is still "front wheel drive" but I've got the replacement axle sitting in the driveway, so I'm finally a step closer to getting it fixed. I think all of you should convoy up here for the next M&G and we can have a wrench party to fix my truck. Of course, you would need to hire a fuel truck to follow you to get all those gas guzzlers up here.

Im still around, wouldn't mind getting an easy-er marble falls/camping trip in the motions in the near future
I approve of this statement.
Altho, I still have no stopping power. I could go bang the air cooler down some trails.

I don't feel as bad about my braking situation now. They've only been out since January 26th. :toothless
I did buy new pads and shoes that are floating around in my shop somewhere... Maybe I'll find some motivation to work on it, so I can drive my topless, windowless, heaterless, carbureted, gas guzzler to work in this 29' mornings.
