    LIE!!!!!!!

    My face feels, HORRIBLE. Did out auto trans teardown today. I barely touched the thing(only one in my group with experience so I read directions and mildly helped), yet my face feels covered in the stuff, and feels like my pores are clogging up as I type. Time to scrub my face hardcore before I sleep.

    Wait till you get drenched in it. By drenched, I mean having a 3 gallon bucket of old ATF and motor oil dumped on you.

    I think I pretty much matched you with the XJ. It took a month to get the tranny in and operating, and I can't even tell you how many times I had to pull it. And the 3 gallon bucket thing, yea, that actually happened..and uh, Dontoe, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot? Not following ya.

    Yes. It's just because I can't stop wetting the bed. It's a condition I have and I don't like to talk about it. So let it go.

    Yea, I know the feeling...but just not as severe as yours. When I puled the 700r4, I had it on a floor jack to get it out. I was directly underneath the TC, due to the bad placement of jackstands and so forth, and I just knew it was going to be bad... I pulled it off, and about 3-4 quarts poured all over my face and chest. It was in the middle of the summer...95 degrees, probably 95% humidity. I took a shower directly after that.

    Getting ATF on your skin is nothing. Wait til you get a drop in your eye. :eek1: That will make you go NUTS for the whole day. Even harder to sleep at night since the **** is soooooooo irritating!!! :angry1:

    In high school auto shop, some guys pulled a th350 out of a car up on a lift. when they walked out from under the car the guy on the bellhousing end stood up. Tailshaft guy was holding over head. He got a bath in tranny fluid. Was very funny too watch.

    A friend of mine over filled his trans. so he was trying to cyphen(sp?) out the extra fluid and got a mouth full of ATF :yikes: :eek1: :doah:

    The smell of ATF still makes him sick!

    Its sure isn't fun being covered in that stuff in 90 degree weather, gear oil too :crazy:
