Soo I found a little trick on putting bearings in without using a press. I was a bit skeptical but tried it anyways and it actually worked well.

Update time:

got a chance this morning to sway my transfer gears. It went surprisingly well for someone that doesn’t know trans work at all LOL. Took about three hours give or take.
Had to go getfluid after I took an atf bath pulling the bottom cover off 🙄. Went for a test drive and all I can say is I’m in love with the whine straight cut gears make LOL

More test driving on the straight cut gears. Also decided to pull the back cover just to make sure they were wearing ok. Next up is getting my trailer done and get it up to kevin jewer to get turned up.

What brand/model of tires were you running? 11 years is A LONG time for a set.
They were nitto nt555r drag radials. They were always well taken care of. That’s the only reason I think they lasted. I was planning on changing tires out over winter but after seeing that in the sidewall that plan got moved forward to now LOL

Couple pics my wife took of the car today at our local cars and coffee. Finally figured out the wastegate issue on the car. This vibrant push loc hose isn’t holding up well to hear so may go back to the ugly Firestone line LOL.
