I'm thinking monkey pox...

I know PJ was hit pretty hard with Bidens green agenda. But I'll bet he's pretty busy lately.

Last I spoke to him he had put a couple projects on hold.

My 4.0 with them on blew up. I don’t think it really had anything to do with the spacers as the engine was quite worn. Haven’t had a chance to tear it down and find out what went wrong. My DD went down (trans and suspected rear main leak), my temporary replacement slagged a piston on the highway and I ended up fixing that only to have someone smash into it for me. Currently back to trying to get the 302 swap done to my green Ranger (dd), then I have to do the heads in the dump and then I can get back to the 2.9/4.0 projects. I have started talking with my machine shop about doing a rebuild on one of these this winter. Going to try to incorporate as much of this kind of stuff as I can into the build, balanced internals and the whole deal. See if I can’t end up with a fuel efficient powerhouse that holds up.
