    decided to take care of a seal tonight and to my discovery I pull the shaft and it was missing the last 10 or 11 inches /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    still need to recover the reast of the shaft!!

    I have never heard of this, maby that exsplains what that bang was /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif..but between the back firing I likly didn't care much. anybody else broke one?

    I think my breakage list is getting out of hand already.

    2 motors
    steering colum
    1 optima
    2 tie rods
    1 rag joint
    cracked frame almoast all the way through in rear
    murdered a r-5000 shock
    rear floor
    every fender
    winshilds=4
    taillights =4 or 5
    lost one muffler
    2 carbs
    2 sets of wires "insert love/hate header relationship"
    1 rear axel shaft
    14 bolt gove lock
    d44 diff cover "drove home with duct tape covering the hole"
    doors..ruined first week after paint
    hood..came off on free way off ramp /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
    duel shock stabalizer..crushed to poop
    1 seat cought fire /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif
    2 cd players have passed on
    1 front wiring harness "dont rely on zipties, fan got it"
    2 front drive shafts
    1 yoke--wollowed out the holes
    front light-cactus snagged it..
    body mounts ripped through floor
    rear floor comming apart
    crushed a new rocker on a boat "That was fun though"
    new front grill..the boat did it in
    both light besels
    fog lights and turn signals are toast
    missing 2 rear body mounts /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    out of all this the tranny is still here, I really dont understand that one, and the d44 survived all my abuse some how /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    this is sad considering 99 percent of this was bran new stuff, I can say I helpe lmc make alot of dough /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    but still..a freaking 14 bolt shaft? WTF, really happy that they dont have c-clips though /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    hmm

    maby it is just me showing off?/being stupid, something about going 50mph through the desert is scary fun for me, now its those darn rocks an the middle of everywhere that are killing me..

    I can bet if I had the 66-nova I want "big block, ford 9 inch tubbed ect"... I would rap it around a poll in a heart beat /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    should have skipped the paint and kept it like this... /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    just dont remind me how much oem fenders cost...all of them /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif we really need a "waste of good money grimlin"

    I could have purchased 2 doublers complete for what I had just in panels alone /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif..... /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    No kidding. He must make really good money. I make decent money for living with parents, and I can't afford half the projects this kid has going.

    I understand supersize I break everything i touch.
    99 Integra gsr with a jdm haonda 2.0 ten grand in tires wheels and body work. Fully for racing. Wrappede around a pole upside down
    95 Grand Cherokee Smashed it down to look like a convert with no windshield. D@#n rocks.
    85 Blazer blew the tranny and added a little "body damage" before I sold it
    70 ford blew the bigblock with a 70 mph 1rst gear burnout.
    71 blazer isnt on the road yet (thank god)
    and about to buy a cherry 79 but will have the little lady drive it so I dont break it /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    A long while back I posted pics of broken 14ff parts. Friend of mine blew a Detroit to pieces in his stone driveway. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif One was a shaft snapped just behind the flange. Another was a trashed pinion gear. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    maybe if you guys stop driving like ass holes and trying to be show offs all the time..and care for ur damn vehicles a little you wouldnt have all this breakage and things to cry about. sorry to come of so strong, but man there are a lot of us on here that would love to do or be able to afford half of the things put into that truck. i have trouble paying for gas every week for god sake, and my truck is very far from perfect, but i take very good care of it, and baby it. i just dont see how anyone in there right mind would spend so much on that and even take a chance of doing that much damage to it, i mean im not saying keep it on the trailer, yea, use the thing, enjoy it, but dont all out trash it /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif



    phew...rant over, i feel better now /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
