I always get great advice here. Looks like my drawing board needs to get busy. Thanks for not only answering but elaborating with great logic. LMH

Default The things you find when your not looking.....

Ok ...
I'm sure I'll catch grief for doing this but........
While looking for a servo lead for another project I came across my RCTek I2 flybarless head.



I had forgotten about completely...
Anyways it had suffered some damage way back when I maiden the 1000E, and swapped it out for the stock ALIGN FBL head at the time and figured I would get around to ordering replacement grip links that were broken.

After looking at it for a bit I conjured up a way to patch it back together using spares I have on hand...













Now that I think about it....gonna have to find the matching swash ......

Default The Castle isn't only about Helicopters.....

The time has been long over due to give a little love to my good old Xterra...

First off...
Time to freshen up the front grille from sun fading with a little spray Plasti Dip and after refinishing the head light lens.... add a little smoke to them.



Then it was time to do a little rewiring and clean up under the hood..
Added a new 4X fuse block to run off some of the driving lights and inverter.





Then replace my old battery isolator with a new one..works much better IMHO....
Just waiting on a new set of battery cables to arrive.



Then moved along to relocating the knock sensor on top of the intake manifold instead of buried under the intake manifold ( $900.00 to have it serviced under there)





Then for giggles installed a oil catch can to the PVC system... time will tell if this was worth the effort.

Naaa...
She's been good to me for the last 12 1/2 years...
I'll do some tweaks here and there, but as long as she runs good... " If it ain't broke, don't be fixin' it "

Ok...So it took a week for the rest of the hard ware to arrive, but worth the wait..

Nice thing with installing twin Optima Yellow top batteries....
They have dual battery posts which makes hooking up triple grounds very easy..










Then install a high output alternator to keep those batteries happy



Wire in a pair of high amp fuses to protect the batteries and alternator and insulate the posts ( not a whole lot of room to squeeze this new hardware in )



Then replace the single stage oil catch can with a proper 2 stage unit
