I picked up my supplies, Hope to get that done today, but have other more pressing things to deal with first. Also need to clean the shop up for this weekend.

Drove it to work again. Nearly 181K on the stock trans and still rolling. Tonight is no question the night to build up the transmission.

Swapped out all 12 injector O rings today, took me about a hour. And I did that with one eye tied behind my back. Ha, who can say that. Then I changed my oil and cleaned up the shop a bit. Tomorrow is going to be a nice day so I'll move everything out and give it a good cleaning.

Pulled Reggies new transmission out to the garage. Pulled the rest of the items out of the casing and started rebuilding. Not having to touch the seals is very nice. Was doing the clutches and came across a missing wave plate, gotta pick one up.
