I don't know. I try to always think positive. But sometimes it seems if it wasn't for bad luck I'd have no luck at all. I catch myself stopping to look up just to make sure I don't have my own personal cloud hanging over my head. Yet at the same time, I think that with this business, it really is always something... some crap to deal with, something to repair, something to buy, ect. And it's always at the worst possible time. I just recently made a decision and went ahead with settling in on some long term commitments in this business and laying groundwork for some other opportunities. Then sure enough, today, well yesterday now, I end up having a non-green industry related conference and trip face-first into an extremely lucrative opportunity. One that I know if I invested 40 hours a week, 50 weeks a year of no over the top effort, I know I alone could clear 200K a year profit. So here I sit, very early in my consideration of if I will get involved or not and if so, to what degree at this point, or if I even consider it at all. It's a great opportunity, but as luck would have it, it's a bit of a late arrival. I didn't flat turn it down, but at the same time I was not considering it heavily. A good deal more of a no than a yes. But I did begin to wonder if that would still be the case had this opportunity came along sooner. So I quit even thinking about it the rest of the day. Sure enough though, I'm out with the truck late in the afternoon, and "it's always something" strikes again.... I come to a stop and slide it in neutral as I often do. Then as I go to shift to first gear in anticipation of taking off, the truck won't go in gear. No way period. So I'm thinking what in the....... So I shut it off right quick because I hear a strange noise. After I shut it off, it goes right in gear like nothing is wrong. So I go to fire it back up. It turns over but won't hit. I keep trying and trying before I start to collect traffic behind me. Nothing. I try again and it almost hits, but doesn't because it starts to pull itself forward with the clutch in. So I stop. Puzzled I try again. All I get now is a click. After ranting around a few minutes I finally get it running again and in gear. But during initial takeoff it sounds like the insides of the trans are going to fall out on the ground. Luckily, I am not far from home, so I make a go of it. What a pisser every time I feared I would have to stop again. Luckily only twice. I get it home, so I go to slide underneath from the front. I want to have a look-see at the motor mounts and trans mounts. First thing I'm met with one small drop of coolant. It's a single drip from the weep hole on the bottom of the water pump. I just go up and walked away.... Boy, the transmission issue sure worries me. I really want to hope it's in the clutch since I don't seem to have any 'in travel' noise. But I have sure never had one go this way before. Not even a hint anything was wrong.
