I didn't regret it that bad. I just hate cleaning mud out of everything.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

how do you kill a steering box with mud? I can understand the electrical stuff.

And I hate mud.

You've never met him, have you?


As for me, finally back on American soil for the first time in two weeks. Wasn't the best of flights back either. 13 hours of flying total, 11 of which with 2 little kids who did not stop screaming and crying for any bit of those 11 hours.

Once again, the German Airline failed to take my bag off their plane, and put it onto the US Air flight I was picking up. Seeing as how i'm pushing around 24 hours now with no sleep, I think I'll wait till the morning before raising a new kind of hell with the German airline.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

front seal went bad in a horrible way after the mud pit and the dead spot in the steering was far worse from then on. So I replaced the box and it was all better! haha.

I'm also the same guy that sheared my main leaf spring from its mount. Tim can also tell you the other horror stories of the shit I have repaired that I "didn't know was that bad" haha

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

that one gave me massage chair grade vibration at any speed above 20mph. BARELY made it home at 1am last winter doing 50. It wasn't even riding on the ujoint anymore, the trunnions had melted (as you can see) and the shiny spots on the yoke ears there are from where it was pushing on the pinion yoke. It had like 30 degrees of play rotationally.

I got back from deployment, and started setting up my home theater and bar. Not to productive, but fun.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Picked up some V8 Explorer injectors from the local pull-a-part for my 97 and swapped them in and right now the results are awful. I even reset the ECM memory and idle is very rough, throttle response is pitiful, and I am getting CEL. Needless to say I am very disappointed.
