UPDATE - The host suffered a "Catastrophic Hardware Failure" (*specifics not shared) on 01/13 and the "latest available" backup for the website and database were restored. At this point they have been unable to recover any later versions of the database.
We are going to give them another 72hrs to pull off a miracle and find something later than 05/21 before we fully move forward with normal forum operations. Maybe we'll luck out, but to be perfectly honest, it's not looking good.
It is still recommended that new members wait to register for the time being, as any new accounts created before our final decision on a path forward is made, may not exist once this is taken care of. This is also true for new topics, posts, status updates, profile & account changes, etc.
As always, we appreciate your patience as ask that you hold on just a little longer.

2nd attempt at borescope - was able to see the tip, it is/was in the deep part of the oil pan. I could not retrieve with borescope hook attachment. I was also able to see the oil pickup tube strainer (at least one side of it) and the strainer (mesh) looks intact. So the piece is approx 5inches away from the oil pickup tube which has an intact strainer/mesh on it. Also, from part catalog I see the oil pickup tube has 2 of 90deg bends not sure if this piece (1.5-1.75inch long) could actually make it through the bends?... anyway this is quite the tortuous path. I feel better. Time to fill up with oil and head down the road, and find a new dipstick of proper length. Thanks for the thoughts.1 point
Not regularly, no. Personal projects have been consuming most of our time, but we've been talking about making a few more soon to clear out inventory. No, we've not discussed that approach. I've read of others doing it, but not interested in going that route, either.1 point
Are you guys making these still? Also have you thought about doing 3" engine spacers and then dropping the transfercase/tranny 1" with spacers?0 points
