Got the new steering box installed in about 15 minutes. Also got the carb dialed back in. However, the throttle cross rod is leaking vacuum at the housing. Time for either a new carb... Or EFI.

Mounted some fog lights on the top of the rear bumper and tied them into the reverse lights, now when I put it in reverse I have lights and don't have to mess with a switch. :-)

Broke something... i was at the beach and when i was pulling out something.. sounded like my right front tire.. and sand flew up inside.. i got out to look and see if anything looked out of place and nothing did.. drove it around in circles and my right tire starts to wobble when i turn it.. drove home slowly and it dies in the driveway.. and of course the battery somehow got drained.. and it won't even turn over.. tried pushing it back to where i usually park and it was stiff.. like the brake was on.. but it wasn't.. it was in neutral and the e brake was off.. examined the axle and everything and it seemed fine and in tact.. anyone that has any ideas.. please help
