Tomorrow, tomorrow I will have it bolted in! No more clamping stuff with vice grips to the bench when I want to cut them. LOL

Funny, it's a LOT bigger than I remember! When I opened the box I thought he sent me some other vice! Then I put it up on the bench holes lined up, I then put my aluminum protectors on it, wham, they were right at home there. Yep it's my old vice!

Now I know what to do with the piece of aluminum channel I have laying around. Wrapping the vise jaws with masking tape or rags doesn't work all that well. BTW FWIW , I gave up my vices years ago, when I got saved. What you have bolted to your bench is a vise, I would hope you have a minimum of vices.

MARTINSR Got my vice mounted, that fold out tool box extension is going to work out well there I am thinking. The bolts to mount the vice, what a story on those. I drove a little different way today back from lunch to the shop and I passed this "industrial hardware" place I had never seen. It's open but you can't go in with the Covid thing, but they had a walk up counter outside so I just parked and went to see what kinda things they have. The guy gave me a quick run down and nuts and bolts were one of them. So I told him what I needed. We walked off came back with a bag of the nuts and bolts I needed, and even put the washers too. He handed me the bag and said "It's on us, we'll get you next time" WHAT? I told him I would pay, he said no, it's not a big deal. I gave ten dollar bill and said really, I want to pay. He charged me 2 bucks and off I went. DAMN, I have found my new hardware store that's for sure!

Going to get my argon/CO2 tank tomorrow.

We've had that humidity the past 4 days. This afternoon a wind came in from the northwest and dried the air out. Quite pleasant out right now, but chilly the next couple days. Can't seem to get the mixture just right.

I'm thinking one of those windows would hold an A/C unit nicely... I've already brought that scenario up to the wage earner and was met with "who's going to pay for that ? You gonna keep on working ? " She'll give in, she just likes to "tease" me, as she calls it.

I'm right on the fringe at the moment from the LS/4L60e swap.
It may, but they didn't on my buddies Chevelle. The bars raise the upper to a better geometric angle to prevent the hopping.
If the angle does get out of limit, the adjustable uppers will move it back to spec. I set the adjustable upper arms on his Chevelle to exactly the length of the originals to start with and they never moved that when checking pinion or thrust angles.

I haven't studied the phenomenon, only observed it. On the Bullitt Mustang, in reverse, and at a burnout contest on a metric Monte Carlo. Dear Lord, that thing was hopping like a bunny just trying to powerbrake a burnout with small tires. I had an 83 myself later, neighborhood of 500HP and I never had it hop. Maybe Pugsy's cursed ride is really just a fan of Danny and the Juniors. Sock feet might be all thats needed!

Meh. The GP leaks onto the wheelwell too. Does not affect going fast one bit. Be glad its a drip not a pinhole stream like my fluke.

Then again, isn't the angle change what stops the hop?

Install these things, then use adjustable uppers and put it back to where it was? Would it still stop the hop?
We had this conversation before. I never encountered wheel hop in any of mine so any input I offer is sans validity. I must not have had enough power to generate it. I put poly bushings on my 69 but don't even have a sway bar. I was trying to remember what you did for shocks and springs. No matter. I can't help. Sorry.
