What Subaru did you take that alternator tensioner from? I want one just like it now!
The IDx 10 concept is based on the 510 in the same way that the urinating I was doing last night was based on a 30 yr old single-malt scotch.

after hours of searching I came up with a set of new rubber for 6 inches. they are General 27x8.5R14. some hammer work was required on the toe pans and a roll on the rear lip. Image Image Image

Need floor board clearence? Add some caster! It's a win/win because you'll gain the clearence you need while adding stability. The Experimental Engineering kits used to be dead cheap (if still available), or a oh can simply get the T/C rods machined back by someone with a lathe.
I like your floor jack BTW.
Tires look great. As friend and I are planning a drive up Harison and out the Nahatlatch, I was thinking of you because I think you said you'd done this drive in 6 inches.

Looking good.

Did that once. Had the machine shop complain to me, when I picked them up, that they'd have charged me double if they knew how hard the metal was. :twisted:

Sounds like that machine shop has never heard of carbide tooling!

Awesome views on that trip!

Tires were a score for sure...we need to go exploring.

I think I gave you an experimental engineering kit. It was a while ago. It added 1 or 2 degrees of caster I think.
If no one from the future comes back to stop you from doing it then how bad of a decision can it really be?

Would the Tracker be able to do that trip? What is the route, the Nahatlatch is one place I have never gone in the local blast zone.

I think my caster is good last summer I added some washers to the tc rods I think im (where's that freaking gauge)...5 - 6 degrees. when getting close to lock the tire flops over happens quicker in reverse. not only did I need to move the toe I also folded the bottom of the fender over on the front.

it has been 5 years since I last did Harrison to Nahatlatch I dont know the condition but there was a few new wood lots opening so the chance of road maintenance is good. H to N is easier than H to Lilleot. the tracker should make it through with out suffering from bc pin striping

I would be so in to tearing up my new tires when are we going ? :mrgreen:

stupid google maps ... once we leave Harrison town proper we hit Rockwell Dr as we pass the turn off for the Sasquatch park we will be on gravel and the harrison east fsr. halfway up the lake harrison fsr ends at a log sortie and we head north east along the silver river fsr (google still calls it harrison) then we turn right onto shovel creek fsr and over the pass between mt Ichor and kootomin. once over the pass we head down in to the Nahatlatch valley at hanna lake, were we have the option of exploring to the west or heading out east to the Fraser and no1 hwy.

when looking at the satellite images it looks like a maze of roads but its not and is easy to traverse
