my latest adventure

this is what happens when you don't air sown and you leave your front drive shaft at home.



then when you get your front shaft installed and your rear axle is already burried

you bury the front end as well

then you have to call a buddy who is smart enough not to remove his front shaft to puill oyu out.

Hey man cool pics. Did you have to wear a snorkel to put that front drive shaft on? [img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: my latest adventure

Woooooo.....that reminds me of the time I had to pull my buddy's Bronco out of a puddle. Damn the Ford designers who decided 4x4's didn't need tow hooks and waterproofed electrical components![img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img] Had to climb in the water to loop it around a crossmember. Water was <font color=blue>COLD</font color=blue> and <font color=orange>murky</font color=orange>.[img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Let's just say Mr Happy was playing turtle.[img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] I was also feeling pretty scuzzy because it was about 5 hours before I could get back to the barracks to clean up.[img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

Re: my latest adventure

damn fords.... what exactly wasnt waterproofed? most of the connectors i've pulled off had a gasket in them... and i've gone pretty deep and never had a problem, even when the whole passenger kick panel was under a foot of water.

Re: my latest adventure

Speaking of water, where would I find those little plastic mushroom looking things that go on the end of the vent tubes to keep splashing water out? Do normal parts stores sell these? I need to run the front axle's vent tube still and need something to keep splashing water out...

Re: my latest adventure

You can get the ones GM uses for dirt cheap at your local GM parts counter. Even at the Chevy Dealership I worked at that tried to screw even us employees, they were VERY cheap. Also some of the best working ones.

Re: my latest adventure

muddybronco, it was the fuel pump relay. Little black box on one of the fenders amid a bunch of other ones. He recently had it go out on him again after driving around in the ever present rain in Seattle for too long. They siliconed this one in.
