OT sometimes luck is on your side!!!
Got up this mornig after finding out the d 18 is trash with a whole new aditude. Going to the junk yard to look around, then off to get some steel and to Fed express.
Junk yard: No d18, but found a set of flat tops for 15 bucks, Course I have to get them off so guy says come back tomorow we will load the whole axle for you and you can just bring back what you don't want!!!!! SCOORE
Leave to go to the steel yard and get some metal. Had to stop in at work,,,, Boss is gone SCORE
Headded down the interstate and BOOM huge cloud of white smoke,,,, But the engine still has power,, pulling fine oil pressure good,,, so I keep going trying to get to my exit 1/4 mile up the road. As I get to the exit, cloud lightens but as I turn the corner tranny is slipping, so out of gear and coast to the only flat pull in for miles. Stop, crawl under, fluid is pouring out of the torque converter cover. CRAP ticked off I shut it down and turn to see I broke down in the parking lot of a Liquor store SCORE Aaron would be proud!!!!!
So I buy a sixer, call the tow truck and after finishing that off, and about half of what is in the Fridge,, I am in a pretty damn good mood. Even though I did not get steel, to fed ex by god luck was with me in the strangest way!!!
Now I gotta get my simi drunk Ass in the shop and get the tranny out of the truck [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/neener.gif[/img]
