View Full Version : fun at stave..and time for a snorkle

05-27-2008, 01:41 PM
Headed up to stave sat night with a buddy, on the way his samurai started overheating so we had to stop. Way to start off a trip, anyway got her all fixed and we were on our way again. Get into stave and we pass 2 police trucks down by the flats... I'd heard the cops were all over west stave and I guess its true now. Kinda sketched me out cause i poke like a mother and haven't finished the front bumper yet. really don't need another VI. Anyway get some wood find a spot and set up camp.
Next day goes pretty good get stuck in a few holes have some fun and then I go to cross a section of water i thought was a lot shallower then it was. Front left corner drops right down where my airbox is so I immediately kill it. After a good bit of tugging from the sami to get me out(without my motor) i try her and ... hydrolocked.

Fuck, so I pull the plugs and intake crank the bitch the bitch over she shoots water 10 feet out the plug holes (fhew didn't seize her) and we wait a few hours. Sami towes me to the main road. Put her back together and... fires right up. DO an oil change, get a new filter and she seems fine, 22re's really do take abuse. I literally have 4 wheeling trips on her since i built the motor and less then 2000 k so i was kinda shitting myself. Kinda sucks my day was cut short but atleast everything worked out ok. Had i not shut her off when I went down it could have gone a lot worse. TIME FOR A SNORKLE!!

anyway here are some pics
