Made good progress yesterday on Hammerhead but had to put project on hold due family emergency. Just have to put driveshaft in, check all bolt's for correct torque and put the wheels back on it. I'll try to post some pic's later to night.

This pic might be one of interest in regards to the diff vent. For the time being we slid a piece of tube inside the the vent fitting then slid the stock vent tube inside of it and used a piece of heat shrink tube to hold it all in place. This fix is temporary til I figure out what AN fittings and hose I want to use.

Between my Buddy Bill and SCT we have been trying set up my laptop for data logging. It's been a struggle since my tunner was several firm ware updtes behind. Were close now just need one more driver for the automatic updater. Looks like one more call to SCT. There support has been stellar.

Even Ken at Straddle Craft did a little work on Pumpkin today. Manifold cover ready for final sand and a splash of IOM. Pumpkin will look pretty now even with the engine cover off.

THX! Primer soon to be IOM. Lot's of the time I have the engine cover off for cooling purposes, once I do the heater hose relocation when I swap manifolds out Pumpkin will still look decent.

Finally I was able to get back to the Hammerhead project to finish it off last night. We were able to take Pumpkin for the first heat cycle on the new diff between rain storms last night. Here are the last few pic's of the install.

A manifold is now ready to ship to Rhino to work his magic on. Big thanks to Crude for offering up his spare parts.
