    Well here we are..a paltry 6 months since the last post on my thread..time sure flies when the bosses expect you to actually work. So i got the main (upper) rear output bearing off, the new preload adjusting ring on and the bearing reinstalled. I also found a cross for the seal. Its a little...

    Sorry you got nailed merle.. we have mud daubbers, bald headed hornets (huge and super agressive..one chased my 240lb linebacker son at a full sprint for a half a mile before it gave up) and some newly arrived ground dwelling black and white bumble bee's that when disturbed, the crazy agressive...

    Well heres the vacation update..popped my back the first day off moving a suspension crossmember so i could only manage to sweat blood and do light duty. Still managed to get some critical parts in and out but held off on taking the front clip off the 135. I'm almost to 90% now and back to...

    The first 2 cans ..the one in your dominant hand should have the straw in it for range and to begin the assault. Hose down the hive. The second can no straw..wide spread for CQB to take out the enemy fliers that escaped the first strike. Victory will be yours.

    Yeah the KT/KTA's were monsters.. if i had to use a 4 stroke it would be a cummins..as long as i had enough hood! Hahaha. Years ago i had a Mack RS700L with the big..and i mean big V8..it was a brute. Unlimited torque but was sooo thirsty. Lately I've been dreaming a little of a p-pumped DT466...

    I'd love to see those pics. Every one of the majors had their share of lemmons. Even with the terrible horrible open-deck-what-were-they-thinking 8.2l fuel pincher at least the deroit people did their best to help you out of a bad situation. They practically give me 2 stroke stuff when i need...

    If i could get ahold of a turbo core at a reasonable price i would consider playing with one. What i wont do is order a single part from cat..outrageous prices. Especially when the 3208 became obsolete in 1990. $750 for an overhaul manual and 3 weeks to "assemble" it. Pfft..its their corporate...

    K so i got the sliding gear cut down a bit more..all looks well..there is enough space now so that the two gears can never be engaged simultaeously..that being said a careful hand will be required as there isnt a huge amount of clearance between hi and lo..so if you were in a hurry and pulled...
