Need to set off LOTS of steam....
Ok so Im on my way down to central florida Hooters meet today, started around 1 o clock, Im driving along happily when my T case's whine got really loud, made me un comfortable but I continued on my way, or SO I thought I would. all of a sudden BAM! and I come to a very rough vibrating stop, Im thinking something exploded! I get out look under zuk and I get this strong whiff of burn smell, I think since my clutch is shot that I just fried it or something in the trany, then I realize the gear oil comming out of my transfer case, I grenaded it ( I did a run like 3 days ago). So Im like ok now Im 45 minutes from home and gotta get towed or go home get another T case then come back. So I walk to call a buddy to come rope me up to take me back, luckily I found a buddy willing to help, I walk all the way back out to my truck to find a State Trooper ( [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img]), So Im thinkin ok he is just making sure everything is ok, then he starts writing. Turns out Im getting a ticket for not having a front bumper, front blinkers, and not to state the fact of sitting there for 20 minutes to show the guy EVERYTHING worked. Then he tries to imply that he is gonna make me pay for a tow truck so I can get it off HIS highway, I proceed very politely to tell him I have a friend comming and he is already on his way, that took another 30 minutes to convince the trooper NOT to call the tow truck!! So my buddy shows and it turns out with the rope he has we would have been better off with sewing string. But we made do, I dropped the rear driveshaft and got back home and spent the rest of my evenning cleanning gear oil out from under my truck, and putting another t case in there. the tickets were each 20 dollars so thats bad and good, Im very upset with my zuk right now, I planned on not taking it, but thought I would make just as much of a scene as everyone else [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]!!!
