Morning Bud and Jr, hope that your day is going well.

There is no "normal". It all depends on the number of crabs in the system. Right now Maryland crabs are at a premium. This past winter did a lot of damage to the Eco-system in the Chesapeake Bay. So now crabs are whatever a person is willing to pay. When I first started eating crabs after retiring from the Navy in 1975 I remember paying $45-55 a bushel.... last week my son paid 115 for 3 dozen!!! And they were nowhere near the sizes we got back in the 70's & 80's!

Oh yeah...morning world!

So it ends up being supply and demand that governs the pricing.

Morning Bud, Jr and anyone that I missed.

Yup...OK everyone STOP eating crabs, esp the ones from the Chesapeake Bay!

Most of our crabs are now coming from Texas and Louisiana...

I just never acquired the taste for them I guess.

Does anyone know of a decent shop in southern Maryland to get a E4OD rebuilt? Or have a source for a ZF-5 swap?
