Yeah, around here if you're not near a decent size city or on an interstate, all cell coverage is spotty at best.

According to Rick, he is trying to find someone local who can get it fixed for him, because the shop he talked to can't work him into their schedule before he needs to leave for home. The other option is for him to have a friend of his drive up a truck and trailer and then trailer his truck home, which he estimates will cost him somewhere around $700. The shop he talked to said they could do the job for $500 but they can't get it done before he needs to be home, so he would have to borrow a car, drive home and then come back and get the truck again later, which will end up costing him about the same $700 in fuel and labor. Kind of a tough spot to be in.

I think if it were me, I'd offer the mechanic the full $700 to get the truck fixed before he needs to leave, but that's just me...

Where is he currently? Still in Kooskia? When does he need leave? I'm not sure I will be of much help anymore since my water pump just started leaking last night.

Nate, I just checked the 911 thread over on NW Ford Diesels and found a guy in the Pullman/Moscow area, I'll PM you his contact info.

Just realized that his post was in 2007. I hope he hasn't moved since then. I'll let you know if I find others in the area.

At this point guys, I think Rick is getting this handled on his end. I guess I'll put a damper on it for now and then let Rick sum it all up when he is home and able to give the full story. At any rate, thanks to all of you who offered and gave assistance.

Rick is getting a trans jack locally and has enlisted some local help to try and repair this himself. He's hoping to be on the road for home around lunch time. Hopefully we will hear from him in here in a day or two.

I'm home. Sorry I didnt post up earlier, but I got a beer in my hand and hit my river.

I ended up renting a trans jack for $22 and my grandpas friends sisters ex-brother-in-law come help me. My grandpa paid for the trans jack and the help and we got it in at about 3:00 pm yesterday. Hit the road and made it to lakeview at midnight, then got home today about noon.

It ended up being the sleeve on the throwout bearing. I'll put some pics of it up tomorrow. The fingers of my pressure plate have some uneven wear, and after 100 miles the new throwout started squeaking just like the last one. I'm wondering if either my slave is bad or the shift fork is bent. I think I'm gonna change both asap.



Big thanks to Nate for being my go between from text to here. Reps to Bill, Todd, and Rob for the technical and moral support. This trip taught me to never go somewhere so far from FTE assistance .

Rick, I'm glad you made it home. Hopefully, there won't be a next time, but I have a friend in Winchester, ID (just over an hour west of Kooskia) I can contact. He might not be able to help with the repairs, but he might be able to find someone who can.

I also want to say, "Thank You" to those got involved in this process. It's great to know the people here can be counted on for assistance, even when those helping are located in different states.

Edit:
Not sure if you folks have seen this, but it's been around for a while now. I feel the efforts presented here should be known to all.

I'm on several different other forums (mostly Android phone related) and a Moderator on a few of them and I've seen a lot of really helpful threads and some really good people. I'm wondering tho why isn't there a like or thanks system on this site? It means a lot when people see when they are appreciated by their friends for helpful information.

I'm glad to have been able to help, Rick. And I'm really glad you made it home. Sucks you have to do it again now, but you're right, it sounds like you have something amiss in there.

There is, sort of. What we have is "Reputation points". If you look in the upper right hand corner of the posts people make the green beans you see are their reputation points. To add to it you click on the little icon that looks like a folder with a check mark. That icon has changed (it used to be a heart), but the system still works.
