    most of my time this evening was spent making this hole


    the news is I may have enough parts between my 2 transfer cases to make one good one... I'll know tomorrow.

    Heard from transmission guy today - $400 parts and labor to make the 2 transfer cases one. I'm so proud - he said the inside of the transfer case that I just pulled out of the vehicle is utterly trashed.... if you're gonna go, go big

    broken bits....


    the transfer case guy thinks this was the issue. this was the chain idler


    it's usually bolted to those two studs


    the theory is both cases failed in the same way - the idler got loose and knocked links off the chain....

    but I have the rebuilt case, problem is it is missing a seal so no install tonight


    hopefully tomorrow

    I got the seal, for some reason the 'right' seal wasn't available locally, but one that is 1 **** hair narrower but it is the right dimensions.... for posterity - that is 50x65x8 mm and it's apparently a commonish size for motorcycle fork shocks... anyway, it runs again. Hopefully I've chased all the issues and I can smog it tomorrow.

    Snubber failure. Totally normal. Leave it out or enlarge the fasteners to 1/4-20 studs with nylon locknuts. The original screws are way too small to keep it in place.

    that's exactly what my transmission grouchy-old-man did. Did I mention he's a grouch? funny grouch, but a grouch.

    a bit of a backstory probably would enlighten and entertain. Kelly is good people, but most people think he's a prick because he lost his filter before I ever met him. Which is fine, I deal with all types, but sometimes you just have to brace yourself for the commentary you're going to get when something didn't go the way he thought it should go. This was one of those times - he got the wrong chain - so he was 3 days 'late' (self-imposed, mind you). Of course, that means when I show up it's sunny and he's already sharpened the verbal ax. So I get out of my car and he grouses that he simply doesn't make enough money to deal with this.... so here is where most go wrong with him, I did too, but eventually I learned. My response was "so, once you get out of that skirt, any chance you can help me load the t-case." He just stares. "you deaf too?" then the words start coming out - a few were actually not cuss words and that's where I heard about the snubber failure. Then I won - he finally retorts that I was better when I was a silent, punk-adze-kid... 50 years old and I'm a kid. It's okay grandpa, we make better dirt with technology.... and so it goes.
