I bought a vacuum fill setup to get away from the hassles of bleeding the air out. Works like a charm. Something like this one works just fine.

flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is
the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a
loyalty to the American people."

I just got back from Glamis.  I was cold this year so there wasn't as many people.  THe last day we where there a group of strippers moved it next door.

I got the issues with the cooling system figured out with you guys help.  THANKS!

When I got there I new the clutch had got a little soft so I figured I better bleed it.  Short story the clutch had broke.  I have yet to fully take it apart but the whole housing has broke.

I was able to drive around.  It went straight out Oldsmobile or anything I it pointed it at.  That was a first for me anyway.  It doesn't want to pull a wheelie though.  It would have been a ton better if the clutch worked but I had fun.  We still had a RZR (got both in a 38ft toy hauler). 

The chain now has some sag in it.  How much still it needs to be tightened back up?

I also got the specs from SwayAway and how much  oil can be added so helpful that will help with the front end being to soft.

And you didn't extend your stay and maybe something else as well?

In a couple of posts guys have asked for pictures or videos of the car running.  This being the first time to Glamis with the new car.  My wife was in charge of the camera.  Yes her got video of the car going up Olds for the first time.  But she parked a quarter mile away and you have to squint to even see the car much less see how the suspension is working.

Carl I can see were you are coming from, but see the camera issues I was already having?
