Going alone the aircleaner stays pretty clean-



Desert sand/dust is nothing like the Rubicon/high Sierra dust-it's almost as bad as Utahs red dust !!!

You guys gotta lot more brushy trails/water/mud (YUK)/RED DUST !

All we got is Desert/Sierras/ Rubicon/ ordinary dust ()-

It don't matter--it's all fun-fun-fun, but I don't gotta clean MUD (YUK)-

JIMBOX No No--not the wind, some sand hills I climb, that change sand consistency from sun/dew/wind and go from 4hi-OK, to 4lo lockers--

Matador Jim, there are still a bunch of us mid-young whippersnappers who can appreciate a good story or two from an old timer. On that note, here is a quick funny story. I was sent to Skip Barber's racing school for a weekend a few years back. The majority of the instructors and students were in their early 20's. There were however two older (60+) retired race instructors. After class we would hit some local bars with the instructors, I purposely wanted to hang back with the "old timers" as they rattled off a bunch of great racing stories (including racing a track car down residential streets during an engine "check" and being chased by motorcycle cops that eventually drove into a neighbors pool). From that day forward I always take the time and look out for old timers, take a seat and listen to what they have to say.

I may have to replace the waterpump first--there is a very slight "LEAK" outta the bottom WP bolt and I found both bottom bolts, a little loose from the factory ( kinds like me) and thats weird, cause they use KING KONG to tighten all the other bolts-

I'll give it a looksee every day for a while--as far as "toys", I haven't got any planned, but we'll see-

Good day willee
