I finished mounting my new tires only to notice my rims are bent.
I have the H1 with a flat plate center which are known to bend. So I order some pressed centers. The plan is to cut out the old centers and weld in some new pressed ones.

I did some clean up from Holister, still getting mud out of stuff.

Sat. I started installing my HFI TBI kit on my travelette Got most everything installed and removed the carb and noticed I had fucked up and set everything up for a spread bore intake and I have a fucking square bore so I overnited the correct adapters should be here Tues to finish the install.

In my defense the travelette was only the second carb automobile I have ever owned so couldn't ID easily I guess! haha

I fucking hate carbs! This Edlebrock would vapor lock like a mother when water temps got above 190*. If I turned on the A/C if would run 200-210 and start running like shit. But got my new thermostat from IHonly north today and installed it. I noticed the old thermostat was the wrong style and was allowing water to bypass the rad.

Ordered parts for the Scout and the trailer

Went to the lake and turned on the water, then put in the pier.

Cleaned house.

Nothing scout related. Did the family thing Sunday.
Saving up for upgrades. Should be ordering some bilstein 5150's and a few other goodies next week. Still need to figure out how to mount the scout II fuel tank in my 80.

FYI, 5150 are discontinued, use the 5100 or step up to 5165 instead.

Hmm, I can still order them from several places online. Did they discontinue them due to performance issues?

I looked and don't see any info on them being discontinued. They still have info for them on bilsteins website. They are available all over the web so I think I will just order a set anyways.

Random Race Thoughts works at Bilstein. He might know something about it...

Good to know. Regardless of that, the shocks are in stock all over the web. So unless I find that they were discontinued due to performance issues or design flaws I will still order them. He has not responded to say why they were discontinued, so unless I find a reason not to, I will be ordering them this weekend.

I want to get the best shock for the money and these are right in my price range. If anyone has any other recommendations, I am all ears.

I ran 5100's on my scout. Loved them. If the shocks are discontinued, warranty repairs or replacement might be an issue, I would imagine.

I was going to go with 5100's but then i read that 5150's would be better for a street/ trail rig. Maybe I should just go with the 5125's.

Joel (random race thoughts) is the man at Bilstein. PM him, maybe he'll have some thoughts for you. He is a pretty busy guy though...

Performance of the 5150 is fine, same travel and valving as the 5125 which makes them a bit redundant besides costing more to produce... So stick with 5125/ 5100 for same performance or step up to 5160/5165 for the reservoir.
