Colin's Visit to Cheesehead

Post by cheesehead » Thu Jun 04, 2015 7:06 am

First I apologize that I do not post enough. Colin I really love the travel stories and seeing all the pictures.

I wanted to post a picture of the GoWesty starter we put in ...last year? If anyone needs a starter I highly recommend this option.

Here is my favorite picture of our visit this spring :flower:

I don't have any work photos of the replacement of the transmission side seals. Oh by the way one side is still weeping I forget which right now....

Update on the shifting..It shifts better in 3rd and 4th again after I tightened up the bolt thru the shift coupler so now the bushings are more snug. How tight should it be?

Driving it a lot lately and the CHT so far are just fine :cheers:

Peace,
Meg

Hello Meg,
I wrote about you in this thread (I know, "New Jersey" doesn't seem like the place to read about your visit):

It even has photographs of your side seals.
You are one of the Founding Patrons of this entire experience.
Now, go clean the side of the transaxle and try to get the deep crevasses around the CV flange. It is just excess transaxle oil. It is not leaking. It is not leaking. Let me know if it still "leaks" after a good cleaning.

Shift coupler through bolt? Only tight enough. They love to strip out if you get tough on them.
