can i get a round of applause for travis and jason
... travis drove 3 hours showed up yesterday around 3pm, and we worked on it nonstop until 1am... woke up at 10am and got back into it... we started to get really frustrated since we had put the tranny in position 4 times without it work... turns out we didnt have the TC in far enough, so i called my dad and he said he would come over and help... about 10 min before he showed up, we got it... so he wasnt exactly thrilled when he got there to find the trans in
here is pics of the broken flexplate, pretty clean sheer huh?
here is how n00b'* drop a tranny... literally..
(yes we didnt know what we were doing and didnt take the TC with the tranny when we removed it the first time
any who, after travis left this afternoon i kept workin on the suspension... everyhing went really nice, and there was 1 other person here to help hold the brakes when i was tightening the hub nuts...
i just had it on the road, and it works perfect, truely amazing
the motor does have an intermediate belt squeak, but that must just be some oil on the belts..
thanks all!!! the van lives for another day, and i even wrote it on the roof to remember
