    Same here with Old Yeller. My job should be ending this week or next, so I hope to have some time to throw at it.

          Ok, kicked it in gear this morning. Gotta get the ball rolling!! Made time to make some measurements and made an order from Dr. Diff. 2 new axles with green bearings and 3" studs. Order is in and paid !!! Now, back to my regular overwhelmingly busy schedule!

          P.S. - when I get my order, there will be a rear end swap, chances of a new video will be higher than this Illinois pollen !!!!

              I know the feeling...overwhelmed here too. I am getting too old to be me...

              I need to slow down, so Old Yeller can speed up!

                May is a tough month for me to get things done. May host our Anniversary, Mother's Day, my daughter's B-day, Memorial Day, and a killer month for my allergies!!!! Throw in the 50+ hrs work takes from me, and my pizza time, it gets a little hectic !! LOL But I'll get the rear end changed in the next 7 days, it's a goal. :)

                    Raining most of the week. Today, I added the gear lube, bolted the tires on, and it's back on the ground...... still no drive, no time. See what the weather holds tomorrow or Saturday...

                        TRACTION is my next course of ACTION. I'll be trying some goofy ideas that have about 1.7% chance of working. :rolleyes: I refuse to put more power or more converter into it until it can hook up with an old, greasy, internally gunked up 318 LOL

                          Are you putting the drag radials on when you try your ideas?

                          Why is it always "Old Yeller?" Why not "new yeller", "young yeller" or "mid life yeller?"

                          Yeller is a '67 and so am I. Feel free to call it "young yeller" if you want, it may make me feel younger too..

                            Not at first... Not included in any video but I did a specific burnout and I actually got the black marks to skip - verifying bad wheel hop.
