    Took the truck out of the garage today, drove around the block for a bit to stir up the fluids etc,,,still drives good and strong

    then noticed some coolant weeping from the water pump inlet tube again, I've had issues before and the last time I replaced the o-ring I gooped some RTV on it to boot. I think this time I may just bite-the-bullet and pipe thread the sucker with a proper nipple, anyone else have the same grief? I seem to be unlucky when it comes to messy leaks. Also have a small oil drip and can't figure out from where, might try changing my valve cover gaskets next too.

    Dunno why, but I haven't had any problem with that connection. Still using the original tube AND O-ring! I have a rear main seal leak from over pressurizing internally. Lost a valve cover cap and didn't put 2+2 together. It blew the cap out! Now I run a catch can.

    Ordered a new trans pan cause I'm pretty sure mine is warped. New gasket did not stop the slow seeping out the front pan line....

    Found out the fun way that my exhaust was a wee bit rusty. Send it hard leaving my dads place and I guess it let go.....I did notice it sounded a bit off the last day or so

    Looking at these pictures makes me glad I got a R/T out of Texas and don't drive it in the winter.

    Yeah....unfortunately the rust had started even before I got my hands on the truck, so I don't mind too much driving it in the winter....they're usually pretty mild up in Vancouver anyways. Previous owner used it as a construction work truck for a number of years so the damage was already done

    Still love it, never getting rid of it, and already saved it from salvage once. Maybe one day it'll get a full proper resto, but till then it's my non-summer daily while the srt-4 sleeps.

    Hotchkis coils in the front, Belltech leaf springs int he back. Still a little high, but I didn't want to do hangers (or blocks) in the back and already had the Hotchkis springs.

    Put a B&M pan on the RC R/T the other day. Shouldn't have used the filter spacer (it's got a second hole in it for older transmissions)... Trans overheated on the way to work and now reverse is dead and it pretty much only moves in first or second when manually selected. Anybody got a '00 46RE laying around lol?

    It's parked until I got back from a trip to a music festival in Daytona next month and I know how much I spend down there.

    I ordered up a set of fuel rails the other day.
    The factory lines finally gave up after 24 years.

    Still running the original block, EQ heads, 2bbl M1, single 76mm turbo through the air/water intercooler. Megasquirt controlled, 66# injectors.

    Life’s other responsibilities meant I simply parked the truck in the garage under a cover in “preservation” mode, and only just recently started driving it again.

    I see you got yours absolutely flying with that Hellcat power!

    Get rails from Richard?
    Mine's been basically parked since that last Sacramento meet. (Or one race after that). Slowly adding goodies to her.

    Took the truck to the transmission shop. Trans has had a slow leak since the rebuild, but did a pull last night and the trans made a bang right before shifting....fluid was topped up so I figure its time to get the leak sorted and it given a once over.

    Not all today but over the last couple of months swapped heads cam lifters a new tune (thanks FRP) and a midnight express sticker. Broke the water pump on a full throttle run down the street before my second part of tune fixed that then got second part of tune in then a collapsed lifter. Everything is now fixed and she runs pretty hard now next is the track to see if anything is improved and to break something else !!!
