Good evening Shawn. Been in the garage working on getting the transmission out. Damn thing is fighting me the whole way. Got 4 bolts left and I think it will come out. But destroyed the cv shaft end threat threads onto the spindle. Frigging rust.

Here is a picture of the replacement transmission

Good morning Jim and Vermont woodchucks everywhere.

Sounds like a fun project - you have all the good projects Jim. That transmission looks like something that came in a cereal box. And of course you'll have a great time getting the old one out and then something won't work or fit with the new one. Or you'll strip out a thread or two - or something. That's why I don't undertake projects like this on old vehicles - I always end up with something that won't work and I don't have a shop like you do so I am up the proverbial creek without a paddle. But glad to see you're making progress.

Good morning Shawn. Your not quite right if this looks fun. I already need new or replacement shaft. More fun this morning. Excursion front driver side tire was flat. NASCAR pit crew change on that so I could take it. WTF with me and tires. Third different one in like 3 weeks on 3 different vehicles

Sounds like a great way to start the day! Do I remember you said you buy used tires for your rig? Any chance it's related to that or is your driveway covered with nails?

Maybe the worst of the day is over now.

These were used but barely. Studded and still have the points on the studs. Luckily didn't happen 120 miles north of here
