Where I have been and what I have been doing
 
Things got crazy busy here at the shop. I have found some time for me to do things for myself.

Here is on of my favorite projects!

My dad bought a new toy and it went from this

to this

Its probably the project I took most pride in. Now I just have to get my license so I can legally fly it. Hes been piloting for about 10 years it was always his childhood dream and he finally sold his enstrom and bought this one.


My brother in law kept begging me to put a paint job on his truck. Im not exactly fond of it but its exactly what he wanted

Now for the bad. I lost oil pressure in my SS. Pulled the motor and found this
http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k5...5/28f55fbc.jpg

that is a cam bearing that I found on the windage tray. How it got there who knows.

The only cam had excessively work cam lobes
http://i85.photobucket.com/albums/k5...5/866e9c67.jpg so there was def an oiling problem

After the rebuild and putting a really nice cam in it sounds like this

No last saturday the transmission took a dump on me so its currently out of the truck. Hopefully when its all said and done Ill be running high 12s.

Well thats about it. Ive been busy but ready for some tails!

Sweet, what a difference on that paint job for the heli. It looks great! Too bad about the oiling problem and tranny though, once its all sorted out and you get it fixed, it looks like you should be set for a while.. "knock on wood" lol

Thanks for the compliments. The bell helicopter of my dads was time consuming. Turned put awesome though and is nice for quick trips from Waco to Dallas to see family. And 2 hour drive turned into a 30 minute flight
