Any mini drivers still alive in AZ?

I am in need of a pulley tool and can't justify spending the money on it

So I was hoping that someone local would have one

Anyways just send me a pm or reply on here.

On a separate not it would be nice to meet up with some fellow owners and bs. I am just getting into modding my 2006 S. I just did lowering springs and ordered the k&N 1540 for my HAI.

Plenty in AZ, whereabouts are you? Hmmm, don't have my R53 anymore, so ditched most of those specific tools/parts... gotta be someone around here with one still though.

Yeah I checked that site out, I just don't want to pay the 25$ fee just yet. I have too many other things I can waste my money on besides that lol and there are plenty of helpful sites out there including NAM that are free. But I am sure I will join eventually. Thanks for the heads up, ohh and check your inbox

Anyone want to go on a cruise in a couple weeks? I'm just getting home from a deployment I need to let off some steam/premium fuel. Congress Arizona-Prescott run? Through the Mingus mountains? Not sure if there is ice on the roads. Someone shoot me a pm or email @ [email protected]

I'll be free for a month's time and will be throwing some springs as well as control arm's on so I need some serious testing to be performed!

Where in PHX do you live? I might be down with that. Let me know if you want some help with the swap as well. As long as I don't have anything crazy going on I'll be more than happy to help.

Mark, Do you have a pulley tool now or just the belt tool? I thought you just had the belt tool.

I am definitely going to need the pulley tool by next weekend. I can get by without the belt tool I'm pretty sure. Thanks though.

Way Motor Works will rent out those pullers. Not exactly sure how much it'll run. If I would have read this a week ago I would have happily let you borrow my puller but I just shipped all my goods a day before your post..figures. diponyou I'll gladly lend a hand with that pulley. It can be a pain in the a** without some helping hands. I live over off the west side of the I-17 on Happy Valley. Ill be home this Tuesday, actually I'm going to give Luke's auto hobby shop a call to see if they have a puller in their inventory. With kind words I can borrow theirs if so. Or if you have a military id we could just use their lifts and stalls. They most likely have the belt tool as well. Just a suggestion. The rates for the stalls/lifts are around 2-3 bucks an hour with free tool checkouts etc.

^ I sound like a salesman for them Haha! I'll post on Tuesday what my number is. I have some driving lights, shift and e brake **** & handle and some bulbs to install as well so I'll be in the lend a hand mode. shoot me an email [email protected]

I'll be home late Tuesday evening so Wednesday would be ideal. I have no problem driving to you.

Installed the 17% pulley and ngk plugs. This thing is awesome. It only took me about 2 hours and that was with no belt tool. I bypassed a lot of the directions on the howto.
I also installed some strut tower reinforcements. I think the next mod will be the craven speed shifter and shift bezel.

I might pick your brain on how you did that diponyou. I have an '05 MCS that I would love to put a new reduction pulley on.
