            Been working on that Dana 60....yesterday got the brackets cut off.....bought a plasma cutter several years ago....used once....got it out after making little progress with cutting wheel...once I got the hang of it again...bingo.....

            spend a hour or so of grinding off the crap left over.

            one photo show how simple it was to cut off the bracket once i got the hang of it......other shows after the grinding and 4 cans of brake cleaner to clean it...

                      Wipe those areas down with alcohol before welding off that brake clean stuff residue. That residue and off gas can be bad news when the welder is on.

                        Back to work on the demon after a couple weeks ....got the diagonal link cut and retreaded on rear end. Got the brake lines back on the rear and connected to brake calipers. Was going to bleed the rear brakes but friends showed up and wanted to go to lunch.

                        my neighbor stock eliminator friend plus the guy (another stock guy)
                        who painted the AAR plus their engine builder from Michigan showed up....went to eat at the near by mexican restaurant....we all order one enchilada and she brought 3 each...lol......after lunch a nap was necessary and I am not making it back to the garage this afternoon...at 106 degrees out.

                        tomorrow morning I need to bleed brakes put the rear tires on .....get car up on lift and do a little welding to finish it off....

                          Well...i am going to rant on my own thread.....Ethanol...LOL...I read over and over about ethanol blended gas going bad in a few week or a month in the gas tank....This Demon has not raced since the last week of April...it is now the middle of August..it has had the same e85 in it since then and the fuel is probably older ....our e85 comes by rail car....probably sit out at the rail station for months...

                          I do run the carb dry....so I hit the fuel pump switch....it pumps ethanol into carb...i pump it a couple of times...the engine fires right up with ethanol that is probably 6 month old if not older....I know i got a few 5 gallon cans still full from april.....with be in race car a few weeks from now...ok ...done....time to go to bed 5am comes at 5 am...lol

                          The car is basically done....I backed it out of the one bay and put in the next bay with the 4 post lift and it is up in the air for storage for now.

                          working on the 75 Duster now....or this weekend....

                          Well..it is now January 18, 2020.....car has been up in storage on the 4 post lift.....lowered it today...covered with a lot of dust...We got the hood and air cleaner off....was worried that the batteries would be dead since it has not moved since Aug....

                          I primed the car with plain old gas....the e85 has been in their since who knows went....fires right up....adjust idle up a few hundred rpm to get some heat in it....tires need air...and out she comes from the garage....gets a nice bath....

                          load it in morning onto open trailer as all the enclosed trailers are being used...lol....
                          as usual the driver will need to be retrained.....that is why they call them Test n Tune....

                          Had to find this thread on page 10...wow.
