sounds like you have a decent to do list too! if its dark when you get there, i would pass on a first timer night ride  ;)     i wont even go out the first night i get there, but thats prob because its usually 1 am or later when i get there :D     

so not sure what kind of clutch cable system your running but, when i was building them, i eliminated the cables by mounting hydraulic slave cylinders right to the arm on the clutch case. easy to do then, all hydraulic from there one. just make sure you build a clutch pedal stop so you don't over throw it.

This 750 clutch cable has to last until Nov-1 and the new Busa has a hydraulic unit that I will be doing a foot clutch.  My old car, I did a Willwood MC and built a stop in to keep it from over throwing. 

Clutch is fully operational.   :s send it!

bring a spare  ;D hate to miss out on any fun over that!
I'm going to look around for spare cables and ends, just in case.  I won't let a clutch cable spoil my fun!  No need for a clutch to shift!  HAA

If my trailer didn't have such a steep incline,  I wouldn't use one either. I've been using a hand winch, and it sucks.  I need to plumb in a hydraulic brake lock on the rail, so that I can just drive up and lock the brakes.  As it currently is, leaving it in gear won't keep it from rolling backwards.

not sure what kind of trailer you have that is so steep that the rail is rolling through the compression. or are you talking about parking on the ramps and then winching it on? got a pic? you have me curious now.

It was a boat trailer that I modified into a tilt bed.  7 x 10.5 top deck, single axle. It's close to a 40° incline. The long ram jack is effortless to operate. It turned out better than I had anticipated.

I'll take a photo tomorrow.

yes post a pic, sounds interesting.

My to do list is getting shorter too. 

-Balance trailer tires
-Make spare tire mount
-Grease the bearings
-Pack tools.  I will have my nitrogen tank as well as a gallon of King shock oil.
-Fix my freaking clutch cable!!  I went out this Saturday and the cable snapped at the barrel at the clutch handle end!  beathorse.gif~c200  It's 2 weeks to get one made, so I machined a stainless barrel, TIG welded the cable to the end of the barrel and added a set screw on each end of the barrel to hold that mother-f-er in there. 

Heading out EARLY Sunday morning.
I'll be damned if I don't go out when I get there. 8)
