    Admiral's TW Engine Transplant and Physical Therapy

    With an ailing engine, a few fellow TW riders offered up some help with my request for a replacement engine. Hauled the TW down to Fred's place, and with the engine from Evan, we went to work. After the transplant was complete, well, we have to test it of course! I really want to thank the hospitality of Fred and his wife for providing me with hot meals, cool drinks and a warm place to sleep. And to Evan for offering me the donor engine. And to both of these guys helping put it in. And least I forget, we had a great place to test ride. I'm back in the saddle again. I'd also like to thank all the others for their technical advice. Without it we'd have been scratching our heads at times! Salute!

    Oh, I almost forgot. I also got to meet and ride with Adam. Great guys all!

    First, YAY! I'm glad to hear you're back in the saddle.
    Second, THANK YOU! For sharing an excellent video. Very relaxing to watch at work.
    Third... man, I just can't wait until I can get mine off road onto some REAL trails like that!

    More pics of engine transplant operation.....

    Here are some more pics of engine install. Admiral really did most of the work, while me and Fred gave advice, looked for tools and gave moral support. The only reason we weren't drinking beer and giving bad advice is we knew we would be riding soon....

    That engine sounds really really good! And the camera took great video. Looks like a fantastic place to ride too. What a great weekend.

    Hi Admiral;

    I was glad to hear how well the replacement engine is running. Those California and Nevada kids are real.

    Your new camera sure does a good job and as usual, your editing is top notch.

    When things get down to being mellow at your place, we should make a run down to Wee's bar to see the Petroglyphs. The route I go should be good for Lorie to make too.

    Happy Trails All

    I have embraced "mild" trail riding. And by mild, I mean there ain't no steep cliff off to one side! I scared of heights! But this was great trail riding. I also don't mind a leisurely cruise on some of the country roads too! I'll try an do my part in encouraging your future off-road experience!

    You got that right. I received more support and help than I could ever have imagined! I hope to give back when I can to help contribute to this forum.

    I was way to focused on getting the TW up and running cause I wanted to go ride those trails pretty bad! I only took 1 picture and I can't find the camera for that one!

    Glad you got a picture of the TW engineless and the improvised "work stand".
