So what have all you guys been working on?? Post up any projects..new or old...big or small.....offroad or not.



--One of my recent project---

I bought another tracker last fall and I finally been taking time to fix it. Basic back story; wife found it on craigslist from a car lot that bought it at an auction and tried tearing it apart. They then decided they didn't want the job. So I bought it for cheap with engine apart. I kinda think they couldn't get the crank bolt out, because it was a b!tch and in a tight spot.

I guess these 2.5L suzuki engines had a known issue with the timing tensioners, the "#1" tensioner (shown at bottom of picture below) would fail (ie lose tension) then stretch/brake the chain or just make some horrible noises from the chain slapping around usually breaking some plastic guides in the process.... You can see it even started to dig into the water pump.

Image

I spent more time originally putting it back together, noting all missing parts and bolts then disassembling it again then the actual time I had in the main labor. When I was all and done I ended up installing a new timing chain set, waterpump, some misc gaskets/seals, and a handful of bolts and misc lost pieces..... It will be my new DD.

I got to drive it around christmas day and it runs great.

well been in the garage working on the toyota a bit got the front inner fender cleared so i can extend the shock hoops to fit the new 12in shocks. and been laying out a 4link set up for the rear and collecting parts so it can be done by the spring. also 5.29s ad a full detroit up front are waiting to go in the axles.

and then my friends budget drag car is in the shop for some wiring clean up weight reduction and general cleanup aswell as a new clutch
Image
we already pulled this wiring out from the throttle body motor that was gone when we brought it home.

we will be repainting this before it goes back in if i can find a good set of heads for him cheeply i will try and convince him that he had boat anchors that need to go for something better. till he has money for a set of aluminum heads for it. I think if I can find a decent set of 202 heads for him I could talk him into buying then if the price is fair so dose anyone have a set laying around that they wana sell
