Re: Warn \"Fusible Link\" for hubs

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] Very interesting Marc.... Us old farm guys have known about "shear pins" for generations. That is how you protect valuable drives from shock loads imposed by stuff like the shovel that Cousin Leroy lost last year going into your hay baler. The only problem that I can see is blowing the front drive at a critical moment uphill and getting into a sideways roll because of it. Two of my Jeep buddies did that in a Flatty a zillion years ago, and they are STILL dead.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]
