Airhead Tranny Tech Day!

Yup, history was made over the weekend- A bunch of Airhead mechanical misfits with the guidance of Matt Parkhurst and other gurus and ably hosted by Joe Cuda gathered at an undisclosed KC location and tore apart their transmissions. After a weekend of mechanical mayhem interrupted by case crackin', pullin' bearings, pressing bearings, shimmin', and coverin' up the evidence for another decade or more as the tranny covers were closed, a dozen odd airhead gearboxes got rebuilt.

More wise (ass) commentary and photographic evidence at my blog:

Looks like a good time with some well qualified advisory help. Where are the rest of the pictures? You mean you were too busy working on the transmissions? (I can't quite find it in myself to say "tranny" ever since I did that google search - yikes! what a strange mental image - the google search, not the airhead tech day).

Now that's a tech day (weekend) I'd love to attend. The tranny is still a mystery to me.

Dunno if you already know, but the "who is" portion of your site makes my anti-virus freak out.

Just as an fyi...
