Re: Help before I kill someone(please)
Thanks for the help guys. I managed to muscle that sucker onto the jack a little stabler than last time. It took a few hours and many many many curse words, but I got it. Thought I was gonna blow my elbow out at one point. Once I got it up, I drained it. Then once I got it lined up and moving foward, the back end got tipsy again, so I took the bungee advice and put a bungee around the frame and around the yoke thingy and that held it stable till I could get it back in the tranny. I tried using a board across the hole in the floor and bungee's from that to pick up the x-fer case, but no such luck. I got it though. I'm sore as hell today and I started snowing like crazy so I can't even reatach my drive shafts and put the shifters back in. Oh well at least I got it.
One more thing, I'm changing the u-joints on the front drive shaft and one end is pretty smooth, but it moves somewhat tough, and the other end it very sticky, even with a new u-joint in there. I thought maybe the yoke got bent, but I have no idea. Could anyone measure the gap it thiers for me? I would really like to have 4wd on my trek through the mountains of MD and West Va.
Thanks again guys, especially you Brad, you always seem to bail me out.
