I got up this morning and worked on the web page a little and then turned on the weather. Todays high was only going to be 98 with a dew point of 70. Humidity of 68% and 98 degrees. I think the THI would have to be around 108 degrees. Being from Texas this is a tipical summer day. I went out side and pulled my damaged t-case. I found a loaner at a bone yard. Everything seemed okay. I bolted it in. After that I put on new cooling system hoses. The sweat was rolling now. I started up the Sami and started to try her out. It shifted into 2wd fine, went into 4 Hi fine. Then damn it wouldn't go into 4 low. Funny thing is I tried this all out before I started. Discusted I went inside to eat. Came back out and decided to tear down the one I just took out. I was not looking forward to this. Got it apart and located my trouble. Don't know how but I loss one of the detent balls plus my front out out shaft had seen its better days. Tired and satified I called it a evening. Tomorrow I will pull that loaner and steal the output shaft and reinstall GRS 1. All I need now is to replace the front axle and replace the rear axles bearing.I have been putting this off since Gotzuk 2001. Man my rearend is tired.
