got the starter issue fixed. took it for its first drive today. didn't go wide open because i don't have seat belts in it yet but it just won't pick up when i did push the throttle all the way open. also drove a little funky. may need to replace some things in the front suspension. But it moved on its own! :-)

Just grab some assorted bolts and nuts from the 2 thin upper drawers near the back door. Not sure the factory shoulder bolts will fit the straps. I have extras of those in the red tool box.

the bolts for the belts are a 5/8" standard size not metric... so look for a 5/8" socket while your at it... check and double check before you stick just any bolt in because that is not a metric like all the other bolts on an ody...

Here's a few more pictures. the first few are of the front left wheel, which is doing some really wierd stuff. its trying to fold under the odyssey, don't know why but am trying to work on it. the guy who sold me this thing with out telling me about it being underwater for an unknown amount of time, also gave me a box of front end parts. (i probably should have taken that hint) but at least he gave me the parts.

check your bushings in the front of the J arms... Once you dis-assemble the lf check the stubs, hopefully they are not bent!!! Ball joints need to be check also... Please do this thoroughly before riding this or this might fall off and flipityflop you will go...
How come there is no snow on the ground??? Last time I was there in May there was that crap every where???

I don't know anything about 350 suspension,but the shock looks closer to the frame at the bottom than the top?I'm guessing the lower arm is bent in?

Your pretty good hoser! :-) The pick up is a 78 short bed 4x4. the three wheeler is a 110 atc. got it from nuke em, had a siezed motor (( Internal Combustion Engine ? )) and it got put on the back burner after the odyssey showed up lol

Spot on turbo, the bushings were worn to hell and back. The stub on the frame is fine, i checked with another j-arm. Nuke em (once again) has a stock pile of j-arms and welcomed me to it. Had a little bit of snow a few weeks ago, but it keeps blowing away! :-)

I'm guessing completely under water. I took bolts out of whats left of the seat and it was filled with water, and there were little bits of grass and other little things wrapped around the axles and bottom of the frame. Looks like it was sitting in running water like a creek. Also if you look at the pictures with the head lights in them, one has a little water in it lol

Fixed the jarred wheel, fixed the limiter switch in the transmission, and figured out the air box wasn't letting enough air through.
