Just imagine Dan, that would be me and you out there in the rain working on it now if I had come along. So you can thank me for staying dry and letting someone else do it.

Well we got the front taken apart and Kyle got the dampener off. Kyle spent 5 hrs on it so far. He has never worked on a Wanderloge before but has a terrific attitude with the "can do" spirit. He will get the new unit and 10 gallons of antifreeze @ 8am. The dampener was shot! I am glad it happened where it did and not on some unkown road with no cell service.

Moderator please make the photos right side up. I tried saving the pics with no success.

3480.5 Engine Hrs.

Kyle spent 5 hrs removing but alot of time was spent removing the coolant and making the holes larger on the Snap On puller. He got it done though.

Thank You Jeff. I don't think the Samsung plays nice with vBulletin!

Ok I figured out how to fool the Samsung/vBulletin! You can't rotate and save, it makes no difference. But if you mirror the pic save and then mirror once again and then save you should be golden.

Monday morning I had an appointment with ZF transmission in Colmar Pa. They changed my fluid said that there was no metal shavings on the plug and the filter looked clean. So I was a happy camper!

Take a look @ the water pump and belt idler while things are accessible, those bearings like to fail at the best times.
