I though I had it bad on the trucks. Transfer case went out, but I didn't include it in the things that were broken. I don't cpnt it as we broke it.

Rodfather. How did you blow the diesel engine in the truck?

Dave. You got off easy on that one. Call it a cast iron frisbie.

Bunton Guy. If she didn't know she had an Irr. system, how did she know it was broken?

Damn I though I had it ruff in the past years.

My 60" ATR picked up a brick hidden in tall grass, chopped it into two pieces, and threw it into the side of a nearly new Honda minivan passing by on the highway. Did about $2000.00 body damage. Thank God for liab. insur. And yes, I had the discharge chute in place.

other than that not much. I have a few things on the trac vac that need a weld or two but nothing bad.

The tranny locked up in the Chevy Diesel and with the tork of it being in low gear, it snapped the crankshaft of the motor. Both bought it at the same time. I'm told if it was a gas motor, the crankshaft probably would have survived. Oh well..
