I think I figured out why the transfer case seal is leaking. The front Carrier bearing is shot. The boot that goes about the shaft is ripped bad and I can assume this winter was not good to the old rubber.
Question of the Day: Take the Summit to Shootout or the new drag talon? The drag talon is suppose to be done for shootout and I was planning on taking both, but I can't find a 2 car hauler trailer.

Welp, all projects are put on hold until 2016. I am taking the Summit to shootout in hopes to just drive it around. I never got to test the new shocks on the front end to see if I would have front fender rub. I have the new driveshaft yoke and transfer case seal on order which should be here Thursday, which leaves me just enough time to drive it on a trailer and get some sleep before leaving at 3AM. I spent way to much time on trying to get these rims to fit and should have just installed the stock dsm springs up front and called it a day. It has prevented me from driving at all this year.
As for the reason for my projects being on hold is that the expenses from getting the drag car tuned is 3 times more than estimated and nowhere close to being done at the current expense rate. I am feeling very beat down and know why people part out their dsm constantly right before getting them going. Most stuff will be going to storage and I will try to save some money up to come back at it next year. I just hope not 2 weeks before shootout.

I enjoyed Shootout 2015. I came back a bit sunburn, but I had a blast. I got to see some of my favorite cars run down the track and even a few from this forum. I took the summit like I had previously mention as the drag talon was not ready. We were suppose to drive it on the street, but trailer it everywhere lol. Funny how tired you are at the end of the day at the track. I am going to get it out tonight and drive a bit. We did cruise around a bit to allow my buddy to drive. He loves the thing and is why we are building him one.

I have some new photos of the summit from this past weekend that I will post after I get them from my buddy as my phone is stone age.

There were 5 wagons including mine. Leon's, Jay's, and mine were 4g63t. Then Charles and another guy that I didn't catch his name (bad at remembering names).

I have a simple problem that is a bit embarrassing as I have owned only 4 auto vehicles ever, which 3 of them don't get any miles put on them a year. I check my transmission fluid when hot with the engine off and the level is just above the hot line on the stick(1/8inch). If I check it while the engine is running it is hard to read and not a consistent level on both sides of the stick. One side is 3 inches above the hot line and the other is 1 inch above. Why I am concern is that now when I come to a complete stop you can hear the trans have a slight clunk that you feel more than you hear.

Any ideas? I have the RVR transmission

Update on suspension: I took the summit around the block taking some quick turns 90 degree turns. I rub in the rear now. I never had a problem in the rear. Interesting enough when I raise the front end by putting new struts in, it balance the weight and placed more in the rear. So I hope to be able to purchase some new shocks for the rear this week as the girlfriend want to drive the summit around this weekend.

Auto transmission in ALL but a very few circumstances, is always checked with the vehicle running and the trans fluid at a particular temp, usually operating temp.
Ridgelines have a check process whereby you have a time limit to check the fluid after stopping the engine, and at a certain temp range.

You have to check with the engine running and the torque converter filled and operational.

With the vehicle off, the torque converter drains back down.

Double check in the transmission manuals listed at lilevo.com to be sure, but this has to be the way to check it.

You go with lowest point of fluid on the dipstick. The fluid should go across totally across the metal surface to confirm that you don't have "drag by pickup" on the tubing as you retract/insert.

Flying Eagle, that is what I thought was interesting. The fluid levels were lower when the vehicle was turned off than when the vehicle was on. I couldn't get a solid line across and had a lot of tube drag. The summits trans fluid level changed once I did what Thom Casey said and put it in each gear to cycle the valve body. It actually started to idle better also. I let the girlfriend drive it just around the block informing her she cant hit pot holes.....she then nailed a speed bump at 20mph lol (she has blonde moments). I was watching the rear fender when it happen lol. I was doing my final analysis on the suspension setup. I need to roll the front fenders a hair as it barely cuts into the tire. The rear fenders need completely rolled as I can see from the mini drive that if I were to stomp the gas the rear would cut into the tire bad. I don't know of another spring I can run on the rear that is stiffer. The agx shocks are stiffer than the gr2 I just bought. It rubbed a lot more on the new gr2 than the old agx. I will purchase some agx new here in the near future as the dial kept spinning over and over, which didn't see right. I checking my other set and they seem to want to stop at 1 or 8 but would go past if you cranked it. I leaning more and more towards airbags. I just need to figure out how to setup my stops and where i am going to get the funds. It should be an easy install. I didn't take the time to check on the trans fluid as I knew it had fluid and I was more concern with the suspension. I just put it in storage back in the shop again. I will mess with it this next Friday night. When I go out there to run some electrical on the ratrod.

Anyone tried to use an AWD 1g Fully Adjustable Megan Front Coilover on there van?
I assume the lower the car too much. I would like to look at different struts and see where the perch sits.
