Re: The IceHawk!

Maybe swap in a diesel 2C-T engine like CathodeRayTube had been working on a while back? I feel like a diesel would be better suited to handle the added demand of the tracks. You know, just in case you're looking for a crazy project to dedicate a few months and buckets of money to, lol. Haha! Quite...

Re: The IceHawk!

Tracks would be awesome and there should be bolt on units that already exist. Seen a fair share of vids of those mini trucks from Japan that aren't street legal with tracks on. Some of those have 4x100 bolt patterns and I think some side by side UTV's do as well. Would probably take some fabrication...

Re: Oil filter and exhaust gasket 86/87 with CAT

I use a Motorcraft FL1A oil filter on mine. Ups the oil capacity a fair amount.

Check the part stores or dealer for the exhaust gasket. If there is an old muffler shop near you they might have it.

Re: The IceHawk!

Well that was a lot of work! Not so much making holes, but taking them away. After really picking at scabs I found that the drivers floorboard was nearly completely comprised of sound deadener and the frame channel. Now it has some serious overkill with a 304 stainless floor! Ice this winter started...

Re: My first tercel wagon

Look like an excellent start! Better get the 5 gallon pail of fluid film. Kidding, kinda.

Yes what a shame! Way cleaner than my nicest runner. The IceHawk could really use the bottom 4-6 inches of this car..

Re: Oh Boy! What a deal!

Cool that there's a kit. After watching the vid it would easily add a Snobear feature to the IceHawk (see my post in projects). I'm generally anti air suspension, but humm.. Do it! While it is tempting I did already order the longer and more expensive hole sleeves in order to reach the ice and stay...

Re: Oh Boy! What a deal!

I love adjustable suspensions! It's only about 3k to do magnaride shocks/self leveling air compressor in a GM full size suv. Just like air springs, it's not if, but when..

Re: The IceHawk!

Well here is the half finished project. Drivers side is next. This really started out as a save the car operation due to rear axle lower arm concerns. Figured I would follow through on previous threats to put ice fishing holes in it while strengthening the underside. Took the easy way out on a trap ...

Re: Coming soon- The IceHawk

Almost half done, which is when I will reveal. Pretty happy with how it's turning out. Some will roll eyes, or worse. But, those who have seen it think it's awesome. Extremely likely this will be a T4 first.

Should have been best winter experience with a T4 pictured. Drug mine out last night after its summer slumber and passed everyone after our first dumping this morning.

Re: Auction in Strong City, KS on Saturday

Take it all! Not worth very much in scrap, around here it's been 30-40 per ton for months. Those alloys should be 13's.
