O.K., I give up!
Putting the truck back together after the "concrete wall event" and I can not get proper clearance between the air intake tube and the spur gear. I have taken everything apart and put it back together again a few times now. Adjusted, pried, etc.
I am sooooo close to bending things, or grinding, or slotting.....
But I don't want to create a new problem somewhere else.
BomberSTi said he had the same problem and solved it with a new motor mount (thanks for the info.! I have it on my new parts list).
Before I order parts, are there others here who have also been down this road?
Move along, nothing to see here!
Figured out how to utilize the "search" function here. Entering "bent chassis" returned 12 pages of threads, all exactly like mine (actually, a lot more than 12 pages... but after 12 they were no longer exclusively about bent chassis)
Checked out the parts ordering page....seems they are all sold out of new chassis
On to the grinding drilling and shimming!
more likely a bent chassis. is your air filter the dual stage, or the old style cone shape?
heres a new chassis
dual stage air filter
humay has left the building, peace.
humayrayakongkina I think you're right.
It's the dual stage. Nice price on that chassis! I'm going to have to get over my aversion to Ebay. Actually, it's an aversion to paypal!
I used a shim on the outside mount in the front to lift the motor just a few mm's. It has worked great for me. Here are some pictures to help. Just a small copper washer is what i used. Actually I have one on both sides but the inside one didn't work so great
Hope this helps. I'm a little on the broke side, so ordering new parts is very low on my list of things to get with bills and a family and all. If I'm going down a bad road with this let me know

Nice work Slider!
I was going to try something like that, but I started my garage remodel so all projects are on hold until I get done with the tape/texture/painting phase. It's going to be soooooo nice to have a warm (insulation!) and finally well-lit shop to work in!
Oh I am in evny of you!! How I would love to have a workshop outside of the main room of my house where i can paint/solder/jam out to loud music!! One day I will have this.....yes....one day....Maybe I'll become big and famous like DJ Medic......HA! I wish.
It's been a long time coming!
All the years I've been working on stuff outside in the elements rain or shine....sheesh!
And I'll finally be able to listen to my Klipsch Chorus ll speakers again! (wife doesn't like my music volume)
