Have fun with it man! If I were you I'd check the heat of the trans once in a while, just put your hand against it and feel it. If it gets more than lukewarm then you should tear into the trans and see what's up with it. I usually check the heat of the trans in my rigs after every run, just to see if she's getting too warm and if it needs some oil or something.

Sure will! Also, forgot to mention, I didn't glue them in, I took a bolt the next size up and it threaded itself in with some elbow grease! Real happy with that, much easier to take apart in the future.

Those bolts were self tapped into the case originally, Peerless never bothered to run a tap into the case. The case bolts are actually tapered and triangular at the end I believe. What I woulda done is tap it about halfway into the hole(or as deep as a starting tap would allow) and use the unfinished threads to hold the bolt as tight as possible. Your way works too though, can't say I haven't done that before!

Well it is a tapered bolt. It's also not a peerless, its a spicer...not too proud to admit it....

Alright everyone, took 'er for a spin in the icy snow, fully operated my clutch, came to a complete stop in gear and my belt never came off. Still gonna add the belt keepers just cause, but I'm really happy with it! Didn't speed test it because I didn't want to lose control on the ice.

lol! I do go over to a neighbors land, help her with fence work and stuff, also we both border the same lunatic redneck hillbilly trigger happy jerks, so I also have security cams over their for her. She has a sandy "canyon", drops about 12 feet, is about 5 feet wide, and goes on her land for about 2,000 feet, nobody has ever gone through it on a vehicle w/o getting stuck. I hope to be the first!!!

Canyon sounds really fun. If the neighbor lady is cool with you riding there, man what a deal. I remember you talking about those other neighbors. Sounds like they have something to hide.

Yeah, lots of fun over their, I'll take some pics of the canyon. There is an old rocky road over there, 'bout 20 years old, completely abandoned, just about anything can bottom out if you're not careful. Those neighbors are very suspicious, needless to say, we have security cams on them....

Just watch some of those vids, show you what kind of people they are. Get over the violence and it's actually kinda funny, how they are trying to annoy us but it really makes us laugh how dumb they are.

Make sure to get some footage of that canyon! Sounds like a sweet place to romp

Lol, yep that's what I think too!!! They do go for drives when they've had one too many, nearly got hit once.


I will be sure to do that, it is super cool! I think I have some pics, not of the romping parts, but of the beautiful view over there.

Yalp. 'Cept what happened to me was I lost traction and started back down, floored the clutch, kept going...jackknifed the trailer...jumped off before and manually kept it from rolling, then moved it onto level ground again.

After repairing the trailer, I went home.
