    Hey now, I am still looking for a rear end for the old B30..... I bought a 96' on the net last year and it will prob. last me for the rest of my install days, (2000 +/-) but I still have the 86' with no a55 end. I use it around my property, especially on my railroad project. The motor is off a 65'. Takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'! I know the Maryland trip is far but if you do ever have someone coming to Nashville, let me know.

    Know of someplace that can rebuild the trencher pump/motor? Burkeen quoted me $1700 for a new one, and $125 for a rebuild kit. The seal went bed on mine and it leaks now.

    I was going to get the rebuild kit, but not sure if I should attempt to do the rebuild myself or not.

    If you have a used around let me know. I may be interested in just picking that up.
