Took the cover off and loaded her up with 480 Lbs. of rocks in bags. It's been sitting since April.

Ran great and smooth...

Sunday, hooked up a trailer and hauled all of my deck wood. No problems.

In a couple of months I'll be stashing my summer driver and be able to run full time again. Can't wait.

I believe spartan is the only one in which your instructed NOT to use them (which that is not), but don't hold me to that.

If you don't use them I can see it not locking up as easily and it'd slip more, I imagine it'd wear it out faster maybe?

yeah this is the Aussie I just could not find them washers when I installed. was cleaning up the garage they other day and found them stuck to the gears. That locker had literally 1 mile on it and I could see ware where the washers belong. It's in spec now and feels tighter

I believe you are confusing the terms "project" and "scrap metal".

So what was he doing at 6:30 in the morning to cause that?

So I decided to try and correct my driveline angles to get rid of the vibration even though I wasn't going to bother. Its better, but the vibration still comes back at about 50, and theres a slight humming from about 25 on. I think im gonna take it to a shop to see if they can do any better. It may come down to getting a sye.

Have you put new u joints in the driveshafts yet? The needle bearings get scored from running in the same spot for thousands of miles, and when you lift it, they ride in a new spot and that scoring can make some vibes at higher speeds.

I see what you're saying, but I have a carolina driveshaft in my basement set up with a double cardian on one end and an 8.8 flange adapter on the other, so I might as well take the flange adapter off and get an sye so I can use that instead of buying new u-joints for the driveshaft thats in there. Besides, Ive got an 8.8 thats sitting in m garage, so I wasn't planning on keeping that driveshaft forever anyways.

OT: scheduled an alignment for tomorrow morning.
