    Just got the chance to start wrenching on the Burb today. Crawled under to start pulling bell housing bolts and I come across:

    Bought the truck under the assumption that the motor was bad... not the motor and the transfer case... not to mention that the front seal is blown on the TH400... not a very good sign of its health either. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Just not a very happy moment for me right now. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif You can look at the other pics which show my progress here:

    BEWARE, the pics are on the large side! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    If you need another, I've got a 700R4 version 208 I'd sell you for practically nothing. You could use the case. If you want a 400 version one, I know where you could pick one up.

    That was so nice of our fellow CK5 member to sell you a vehicle with more broken parts than what he advertised.

    Before we get too upset here, I've talked to Wes about this and he is going to try to help me out... possibly. I guess he has a few trucks that he may get his hands on (he'll know Tuesday). If he gets them, he will pull a 208 (not sure thats what I want though) and send it to me. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    I'd much rather put a 241 back into the Burb... seeing as thats what it came with. We'll see on Tuesday... /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Dang, if it weren't for bad luck lately, you wouldn't have any luck at all /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif At least the R/C car ain't broke /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Hope you can get it fixed.
