OUCH!.... That sucks. I have had a couple of my bits catch on me but so far I haven't broken anything except the "D" handle on my big 1/2" drill. I hope it doesn't slow you down too long.

Re: Project: '72 Family Hauler

Damn. I’ve had mine kick a few times, but it hasn’t managed to hurt me too bad, yet. Just a few heavy bruises and plenty of blood. Sorry to hear

Very cool new project! Looking forward to following along with this one. I didn't realize you had sold the GMC. Subscribed...

Thanks for the well wishes. Iím still in a little disbelief that it actually happened. I donít think this drill will be pulling Suburban duty any longer. Iíll stick with the battery drill from now on. Iíll be back at it as soon as the ortho releases me.

Thanks for checking it out and following along. This thing will never be as nice as the gmc but itís going to be equally as fun. The kids are so excited about riding in it. I hate that itís postponed a little but weíll be making the daycare parking lot cool very soon.

Re: Project: '72 Family Hauler

Iíve really been slacking with updates. After healing up, I jumped back on the Burb. Instead of installing the c-notches, I decided to just wait until winter. I installed new poly bushings in the rear trailing arms and bolted on the new shock brackets from DeadEnd Garage along with their panhard bar. I had some vibration in the driveline so I pulled the carrier bearing, which was falling apart, and stuck in a billet one from CPP along with a new driveshaft rear section from Dennyís driveshafts that has a slip joint. No more vibrations! At this point I pulled this old rubber mat in the rear to check out the plywood flooring. It has a few soft spots but overall is pretty solid. Bolted some new seatbelts to the rear two seats and weíre ready for a family cruise!

Re: Project: '72 Family Hauler

For the next stage, I tracked down a clean Gen3 5.3/4L60 from an Ď07 Classic Sierra. Made my first drive across the Mississippi to NE Arkansas on the flattest, straightest road Iíve ever been on. Iíve started putting a parts list together to get this stabbed in this winter! Iím not he only one planning an LS swap.

Yup, I see why you need a Suburban....

You will love the 5.3/4l60e combo.

Re: Project: '72 Family Hauler

The 5.3 will be a very nice upgrade. Looks like the kids are getting serious with the little Chevy.
