Almost time to let the 5.0L sing
Don't forget to bring my parts

I can't catch a break.. finally got the t-case in and drove it but it has a high pitch whine in 4h. I drained the fluid and it has some aluminum and bronze colored shavings ...this will be my third case that was ( in great working order) that has issues.. My question is should I run it this weekend or call it a loss and cancel out this year? sucks my 5yo son is so excited to go. So far I lost my trailor to bad tires and one wheel bearing my, place to stay due to to many family members going to be up there, and now my third attempt to get the t-case fixed has failed. What would some of you do in this situation?

RUN IT! unless its what your driving to get up there and back, sometime is better than no time on the trails.

did you work out the trailer and place to stay issues?

you have made it this far and still have one more day to get things better.

I will bring my bucket of 231 parts.

You can use my trailer to swap it out makes it very easy can stand up inside it and change it above your head.

Just remember this. If you go on a trail run with a known problem and break down, you have then fucked all the other people on that run. Even if they go on and one person stays back to help you, you have fucked that one person.

I am adamantly against starting out on a dedicated trail ride where people have paid to participate knowing that you are likely to break.

Going out with your buddies and breaking is one thing. Breaking down with total strangers in your run is another.

Breaking because shit happens is one thing. Breaking because you know you have a time bomb is another.

Hopefully there are enough people and parts that you can swap something in and you can have a good run. Good luck.
