Troy's wagon mis-adventure- wheel falls off!!
Posted 26 November 2003 - 04:46 AM
we got to my house from fall city just fine, then we had to do a quick radiator install, and a tune-n-wash..
then when he went to go home, he got about 10 blocks from my house, and i got a phone call- "Austin, can you come get me?? i need a jack, a spare tire (unless i find mine) and some lug nuts"
his front drivers wheel fell off after going around a corner in the neighborhood!!!
but we got it fixed, unfortunately, the brakes are more than used up, the rotors are half way eaten up!!! (its way past metal to metal! it ate thru the vents in the center of the rotors!!!!)
here is what happend-
and to make my day "better" this is all at about 1am, and I have work at 8am!

Had that same thing happen to a luitenant a while back. Someone forgot to bend the tab down on the castle washer for the gear reduction hub's stub axle. Whole axle fell out (with wheel attached) going down the freeway. That was not a happy day.
