Finally..this weekend (Progress, and help needed)
Allright, Ive been betching and babbling about it for 3 months now. It has been in my garage for 3 weeks now, this weekend it will be in my truck...
Im finally swapping my bad tranny. 3 months ago (1 day short of owning this truck for a month) I lost 4th gear. I finally saved up the $ to get a rebuilt, and finally got a weekend off so I could give plenty of time to work on it. Friday around 4:00 pm my truck is going to squeeze into my tiny garage and I will begin working on it finally. If anyone is in the Milwaukee area and wants to check in PM me. There will be plenty of beer, cigarettes and music. I dont know if I will be able to get my garage shut with the truck in, so friday might be an allnighter, until the back alley neighbors are awake and can keep their eyes open for me.
Ive been Kroiling the exhaust bolts for 2 weeks now, they are the only thing I am afraid of. As much as Id like a catback, I cant afford that right now either so the exhaust has to come off easily. Supposedly my clutch was done 30,000 miles ago so Im not replacing it and I would think that things should come apart a little easier because of that.
Yes I have been priming my drinking skills tonight, or Id be in bed already. Im probably going to drive my coworkers nuts tomorrow also, with my babble. This will be my biggest repair yet, on my favorite 4 wheeled vehicle yet.
