donor truck has front end damage, dont know yet how the engine is but the trans a 5 speed. the whole interior was redone and the bed is in great shape. so for the money it was worth swapping what i can from the yellow to the green truck. seat is totally shot. i will be posting new photos shortly of some progress. thanks

Today myself & robert [dat521kid] went up to help Chris & Christine work on her 521. The goal today was to drop the tranny's in both trucks, swap the pressure plate, clutch disc & tranny from the yellow truck into the green truck. We got the tranny bout 90% in & then it got dark. The way we got it out was to drop the PS torsion bar which allows the trans to slide down & over for easier removal. Chris even made a Ratsun style clutch allignment tool from a broomstick!! All in all it was good to help such great friends & get our hands greasy. Oh & it was only 98" degrees today...;)
