NWWO Run 04/26

Recommended Posts

Well looks like plans have changed.  :(

 

Had a friend who owed me some money and since times are tough for him I told him he could just work on my car for me instead of paying me back.  I bought all the supplies, engine oil and Filter, Gear oil for Transmission and Rear Diff, Front pads and rear shoes.  He is also a coworker with me at the school as the bus mechanic so i trust his work without question.  He did engine oil, said it looked good, did transmission said it looked decent coming out and only a couple tiny pieces on the magnet, then he did the pads and shoes.  All went well, the issue lies with the rear diff.  He pull the plug and.....nothing came out, couple drops of black fluid maybe.  He said he also pulled some pretty good sized metal chunks out.  Had him fill it with new oil and brought it the 5 miles home last night for the tear down so it wasn't stuck in his garage, dug into it today...

 

This is what i found.

Believe me, if I had the space I would have two spares of everything. With such short notice I couldn't pick one up.

 

On the other hand I have all my photo equipment ready to rock.

I glad that pics don't come with sound or you would have changed your mind pretty fast after hearing all the creeks and funny sounds it makes................  haha
