I knew I didn't have the money to pay Pat to do it for me, so I bought a Tiger instead and told Pat about the truck...

Almost. I'm a Brooke, with an "e." My grandfather was a Brooks, with an "s."

If it was about 15 minutes closer to Jackson I'd build a house out there in a few years. Such a beautiful place. I just can't quite talk myself into battling that traffic every day to get into town...

So I got a 15T, lower gearing, counter sprocket on the way for the Tiger.

Anyone got a 36MM impact socket? Guess I need to get one...

I told you it would run with just a little work. it could have been on the road for less then 300 more bucks into it. a little work on the brakes and a carb kit. I really hope he doesnt cut it up to bad into a rat rod, I know they said something about a rat rod.

oh well some of the money i got out of it is going to get my old 76 ford F150 back on the road. it has a dead lifter killing one of it's cylinders and the master cylinder and brake booster are bad.


oh well I wont miss it as bad as I miss my VW Bug

Thinking of selling the DRZ. Somebody talk me out of it.

Not spamming here. That will come later.

Does it have to be an impact? I've never used an impact on a sprocket.
