it started at 6:45 am, load truck up to go wheeling with a bunch of guys. i grab the camera, CB, strap, tools and winter weather wear and throw it in the truck. start the truck to warm it up. come back in to make sure i had everything. lately ive been having minor tranny problems, when its cold it, reverse doesn't enguage and drive take a few seconds longer than it should to enguage. so i figure that when the snow is gone ill get to building a new tranny. i jump in the truck at 7:15 and head to the gas station 2 miles away. fill up and go threw the light and it misses 2nd. let off and it cought. well it never found 3rd. so i decide that im not going to make the 80 mile drive and drive the 2 miles to the next road to head home. that 4 miles was LONG at 35mph. i am so pissed cause ive been planning this for a while and spend the money to get everything up to par. ive toyed with the idea to throw a stick in this when i had the th350 go out when i got the truck, but i thought it was too much work at the time. so i get home, call my buddy and he has a sm465/np208 sitting in his shed, its mine for $150. i wait around for a while being down and pissed. at about 11 i make the 5 mile trip at 35 mph to the junk yard to grab the hydro clutch stuff. got the bellhousing, 2 master cyls (the first one had a bend rod, how it got bent i don't know0, line, slave cyl, pedal assembly, and a perfect battery tray for $40 (buddy i went to school with owns the yard ) i also noticed that it had a uncut TBI harness on it. i know where im getting my harness my dad owes me a clutch and machining of a flywheel when we had to put a clutch in his blazer 2 years ago. so the entire swap is gonna cost me $190 plus some fluid. even though i didn't get to go wheeling where i wanted, i still got to use 4wd to get back to the truck that i robbed parts off of. GOODBYE 700R4, HELLO CREAPER GEAR. now the only thing is i have to get the van done that is in the garage so i can work on my truck in there.
