    Ok guys,

    Been a while since I've been here. Things happened, as you might know or
    not (dunno what was told to you really). Well I'm not going to explain all
    that happened but most things were blown out of reality. But the main this
    was that after the accident I was ready to sell the K5. It just had too
    many problems for my comfort. I wasn't really sure about it so I put it in
    storage. Well, months have gone by and the K5 thing turned out to be a
    disease. I started to miss the beast, and in a way, the friendly people on
    this site. So I took it back out of storage and started working on it
    again, to get ready for the summer. So far I solved some play problems in a
    steering knuckle and a lot of electrical problems.

    So what happened to Lana (Tall-Girl). She is still my girlfriend, but she
    sold her K5 because it was a piece of you know what. The whole drive train
    was bad. She left for Australia a week after I got out of hospital to train
    in wakeboarding for the upcoming season. Been with her for about a month
    there. Although she only had a K5 for a short time she want's to look for
    one again. The disease seems to be contagious. So I think she will be back
    here also.

    Well, enough talk so far. I'm glad to be alive and back. But now for a
    simple question. What type of oil goes in a 12bolt axle. (open diff).
    People here tell me to just dump the European stuff in that goes in the
    Toyotas, the Susukis, the Holdens and other p.o.s. cars. But I'm not all to
    keen on trusting them.

    Greetings!

    Put in Brand "X" gear oil 80/90W. I never paid too much attention to the brand....whatever the store carries :)

    Boss is right, shouldn't matter what brand you put in an 'Open" diff. 80/90 is what I use, and what ever is cheapest.
    Now for lockers and limited slips, I believe it will make a difference.

    Glad to hear that you are keeping the K5 [​IMG] Yes, use 80w/90 gear oil, like Boss said.

    I know you said you do not want to explain, but there was some terrible confusion in reguard to this;
    <blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr>

    Things happened, as you might know or
    not (dunno what was told to you really). Well I'm not going to explain all
    that happened but most things were blown out of reality.

    <hr></blockquote>
    So it would be good if you did explain, and clear it up, please.

    I guess since someone shot your truck in the transmission with a .50 bullet you'll be replacing that soon right?

    Hey Sammy, a lot of sh*t was stirred up in your absence, I'm sure we all have the time to hear what happened. Please clear up the confusion.

    So let me get this straight - You almost die from a .50 cal bullet, and then a week after you get released your loving girlfriend leaves you to go 1/2 way around the world........ Am I right so far????[​IMG]

    And then you claim that you're not certain what was said about the "incident" even though it was your girlfriend who kept us posted???? How would you know that it may have been blown out of proportion if this is your first visit in months? Are you telling us that your girlfriend lied about what happened? Why would she lie? And why are you still with her knowing that she's a pathological liar(and a sh!tty one at that!!!)

    C'mon, man!!!! I was born at night, but not LAST night!!!!![​IMG]

    Ahh sheeit!
    Lets get the popcorn and beer like everyone said.

    So what is the full story SAMMY?
    Spill the beans dude. We're all dying to know what is up with you and the shooting incident!
    Hope you're okay[​IMG], just everyone is shaken up around here and doesn't know what to believe! Maybe you can clarify for everyone and shoot down any rumors or false things that might have been said.
    Lets hear it first hand from ya Sammy![​IMG]

    Hey Paul, (CanmoreK5) you want to buy some beachfront property I own in Arizona? I'll make you a great deal on it. Might even throw in some peanuts and beer for when you get a chance to sit down and listen to a great story. Would even finance the property for you.[​IMG]
