Frame head fix
bartman
I tried to straighten my bent beam and tweaked frame head by chaining my baja to a tree and jerking against it in reverse. It worked but I pulled my frame head apart.

I repaired it by cutting out the damaged (and rusted, as it turned out) area, rebuilt the tubes through which the bolts get inserted, and bent a piece of new plate against which the beam sits.

I welded it all together and it works pretty good. It took a lot of mocking up and test fitting to get it right, and it's still off about 3/4" but, oh well, it's back on the road. I used through-bolts with nuts at the back to mount the beam.

This is a t1 IRS. Pop the seals out of the stubs. Remove the snap ring and pull the stubs. Remove the left side cover and remove the diff. The gear can be removed by driving a drift against the bottom of the bolt holes. Drive the roll pin out far enough to drive out the spider gear retainer pin

The New Tires
bartman
Old tires were M/T Baja Belted, bought in 1999 for about $120 each. I got about 35,000 out of them.
New tires are Mastercraft Courser at $306 shipped for the pair.
Tires are 30x9.50R15LT. Almost looks like I could have gone with 31s

This is the one directly below the full flow return. The oil relief valve rides in this bore and the oil discharges through the port at the back of the bore. It doesn't seem to affect oil pressure

Crank Gear Puller

This is the preferred tool. Shop around. I got this one for under50 bucks(can't remember where) but they run up to over $100.
The more expensive pullers have a ball bearing in the end of the threaded rod but mine doesn't. I have a ball bearing, about 3/8", I drop into the crank for it to ride on

Home Made Muffler Bracket

1 5/8" ceramic trimil w/u-bend. Generic stainless steel Supertrapp knockoff. The mount uses the bolts that retain the glass insert. The hose clamp(and mount) will mar up the ceramic coating, though. A billet clamp with the support strut bolted to it would be better. But, it is what it is. Seems to work well.
