    Hey now mines cornish cream, don't rope me in with those basic types. Although dusty fadeing white might be a better description of cornish crewm.

    Don't know if they'll be open but Brewer lake is also really nice trail above Bald mountain. Also there's a cool little campground about a quarter mile past the trailhead.

    There's also a lot of little campgrounds if you get to the top of Bald mountain and then head north off the trail versus the normal way

    Big thanks to the Miles, Theresa Sasha, and anyone else in the planning. It was much much more of an experience then I was expecting and completely worth it. Rupert and I made it back into reno a little after 10 but we got to run in a nice rain storm on the way home and that made the no ac pretty nice and gave a pre car wash. Note to self add a HVAC blower switch to the spares list. Thanks again to everyone on the overland committee for creating such a great event.

    Cooper might be missing it he ran his trucks across the gravel driveway, a to scale potato road. Then lined them up for "camp".

    Hello all! I'm planning on staying in Merced for a while which allows me easier access to the mountains and subsequently adventure opportunities! I have 2 trips in mind but welcome to add and or change them in pretty much any way to fit whoever else wants to join. First is Pinecrest due to its close proximity to Merced (1-2hrs depending on traffic). The second being another Shaver Lake trip but without the snow.
     
    Pinecrest Trip
    Dates: Sometime between June 1st-June 17th. Can be a day trip or 1-2 day camping trip. Very flexible depending on interest and scheduling
    Plan: Exploring the area. Mainly forest road 04N34. This road runs through the backside of the resort and I've been dying to explore it by either walking or driving for a year now. But other activities include other forest roads, Pinecrest Lake, and summer activities at Dodge Ridge (They have scenic chair lift rides starting June 15th, Disc golf, and more). Again this can be heavily modified. 
     
    Shaver Lake Trip
    Dates: No clue yet
    Plan: Run Bald Mountain trail without snow, and explore other trails in the area. I've only done Bald Mountain, which I love doing and want to show a friend or two if they come. I also want to explore other trails and forest roads around there too. Once again, can be heavily modified.
     
     
    This idea and post are a work in process and if anyone has ideas, comments, or questions feel free to interact!

    The club was there twice before when the previous owner had a caretaker there. The club stayed at the bunkhouse overnight. Also yearly a local jeep club used to help restore the deck and outside saloon, don’t know if that still occurs.

    Mr.BlueSky reacted to Jethro in 1964 Series IIa - Build   
    I wasn't really sure how I would sort the clutch. I bought a setup from an FJ40 using a small block.

    Looking at the bellhousing it had a passenger side access.

    So I thought I would likely do an internal slave.

    But then I started looking at the pats and talking with a few friends including the one who sold me the parts.

    Realized it was all setup for an external slave and would be easy enough to refresh the parts and run with it.

    Got around to finishing the rear cross member cut. This time the driver side. With the wheelbase stretch need to clearance the cross member from tires hitting it.

    Did some more paint work on rear tub and frame.

    I think I can leave the rear tub in place now.

    Next up begin bolting drive train together and get ready to mount.

    Hello all... quick FYI... I've been helping Jesse Coombs get his new website setup to sell Timm's axles and thought I'd mention that while originalironoffroad.com is live, it won't be completely setup until next week when the crew is up at the event in Oregon. Adding to what Don has posted, the site has a few photos and some additional details. Check it out: https://originalironoffroad.com/products/35-spline-upgrade-for-land-rover-salisbury-rear-axle

    Miles (and Theresa) led another great trip, assisted by Sasha at the back of the line each day.  I made it back to Reno after a very early start, looking forward to seeing pictures posted up.
