I pulled the slave cylinder off and un-stuck it, put it back in and it works again. I did'nt want to try and unload it with no clutch! It was a real bitch loading it with out! I will be heading out around 9am or so Thursday morning, so I'll be in your neighbor hood around 11-12pm.

Yeah it is sad! The funny thing is that it's so close to my garage, that I have these weird feelings to unload it and start wrenching on it! (I've never had it down at my house before due to no spare room to park it)

Hey Jeff, If I can ask who made your trailer or where did you buy it? I will try to search for it but thought I would ask....and if you don't mind how much was it? Thanks again

Is that rated to tow the Fj55, I've got a 40 and she's at 5600lbs and would think that the 55 has got to weight more? Does that have a dove tail? I have an add from them but want to have as much info as I can before I call...thanks

Jeff, When I bought my first cruiser, the poor guy I got it off of turned his back to me and cried as I drove off. I, now would probbley do the same. These are not cars or lawn funiture, they mean so much more. I empithize with you. Your cruiser is getting inducted into a community of cruiser fanatics, people who drive them daily, and traet them better than family. (almost) When you see this vehicle in the coming months on the trail and in the pages I hope you can feel good that it's doing what it was meant to do, wheel.

Flints opens at 11:00 so maybe after we unload we can get some lunch. Any cruiserheads that want to be here when jeff shows up ought'a come down by 11:00. Morgan, please bring the camera.

The trailer is rated at 7000lbs, a 55/60/62 only weighs a little more than a 40 like 500lbs (stock) I really find it hard to beleive your cruiser weighs 5600 though, but I guess it's possible. I only use that trailer to tow my FJ40, but with the 55 on there it pulls just as smooth. Just looks bigger on it!

Dove tail? I don't know, I know it slops down in the rear, enough that I don't even need the ramps.

True that I will miss the wagon, but I'm really not that attached to it. Not like my 40 which I've had for over 17 years now! I will never get rid of that! And my FJ60, I don't think I can get rid of that one either.

Dudes, see ya all tomorrow in the Ghetto!!!!!
