Default Anyone else interested in doing a conversion?

We have 2 folks interested in doing a GPRXP conversion, however, the machinist would like to have a minimum of 3 conversion driveshafts to keep the price down...

To get started you would need a minimum of a rxt/rxp driveshaft, and a 2000-2001 intermeddiate shaft. The cost runs from $250-$300 TOTALLY on what the machinist charges me each time. This is the price just for the conversion. I can move the bearing assembly over, so you just have to send it to me, and I'll set it up for you, as long as your parts are good.

Get in touch with me, if you are interested.

No worries Nate! I've been having fun with some minor financial fun over the last few months. I "think" I see the end of the tunnel in a month or so.

Mark,
We bought an 05 RXT, with all the goodies, hull is destroyed. What else do we need? We'll start gathering parts.

Start a thread, and I'll bookmark it if you wish, or start one in the conversion area at GH.

Start reading!

Get your RXT driveshaft and GPR intermediate shaft to Ted ASAP. Press the bearing assembly off if you have a press, or ask Ted to put it on for you when he is done. Not sure he's pressed one of these on for a GPRXP. Turn-around time is in the WEEKS.

Get a waterbox from TDR. Ask for the MC1 model.
