Let it frustrate the (insert favorite 4 letter word) out of me....

While the trans is out I figured I would replace the leaky rear main seal. Well that turned into another all evening job. Which really has me scratching me head, I could not figure it out but is there anyway to know for sure that the oil pan gasket is properly set around the rear bearing carrier? As much as that dang gasket moves around when trying to get the pan up in place. All the holes were lined up when I got it into position but thinking about it that thin piece of gasket has to go into that grove to seal everything up and where it is located there just seems to be no way to know for sure. Now I am waiting to get the trans back in so I can fire it up and look for leaks...

Use rtv to hold it in place will you bolt up the pan.

Yea... just not so sure on the frame right next to the spring perch was the best place to practice. Theres gotta be a skilled welder somewhere nearby you could take that to to have it fixed up.. maybe make sure the weld isnt going to help frame buckle.

Yea I've been looking for a soft top for ever and the guy was selling the windows and a frame for a sun rider top I couldn't believe the price but I had a 4 hour round trip to get them, but I use searchtempest. Com you can put a radius of how far you want to drive and it will find all the ads on craigslist by distance

I drove mine through the desert. Literally over brush and stuff chasing after a stray dog. Weren't able to get it unfortunately so hopefully it finds its way home. It was so much fun I'm wondering if I should stick with a full width bumper or go stubby like I have been planning when the time comes. I figure the wider one would knock down the brush before my tires got to it. Haha.

i prefer my full width one, it protects everything so much, no more getting trees stuck between the tire and the frame

Very nice welds! I agree with Ripper though, probably don't need more but it will only make it stronger. I pretty sure we did 3 passes on the mounts for my 8.8 as well.

turns out my buddy got a job at a chop. If I understand right they're really more into old school VW and bikes. But I'll probably see if I cant have them weld new shock mounts on the D35...

If it's too expensive I'll just look harder for an 8.8 and have that welded instead.
