    Done, thanks for the link!

    yea it was posted a year or so ago, guess the link died out. I'll see if I can track down another!

    No problem! I loved the orignal How-To but it had alot of new stuff missing.

    I see you've put a lot of time and effort into compiling that list but I did notice a quite a few of the links are four, six and eight years old and almost none of them have photos anymore which is unfortunate. These are the people that dove into these projects sometimes for the very first time. :read:

    But just as a warning to people that may be viewing these links, there's much technology, and advancement in parts and knowledge in six or eight years! :idea:

    I wish someone could find the IRS bushing replacement writeup pics and rehost them. I imagine that would be a GREAT resource.
