I am sorry I didn't wish you and the family Merry Christmas sooner. I hope to meet up and catch up soon. Glad you are making it through the renovations .... even if they are forced If you have a need for any nail guns I have every thing from framing to finish guns so give me a yell!

Thanks, Paul. I'm good on tools. We will hook up at some point, I am certain.

Hey Egul... how 'bout a pepper report!? You like it alright??


I finally got my tranny out of my Jeep. One bolt that goes inside the bellhousing was spinning (bottom right corner). I cut it off with a wheel. Now what do I do with it? Fix it myself (I want to) or send it out (in the interest of time)?? The input shaft bearing is toast (pilot shaft bearing). Thinking about a master rebuild kit but I'm not sure which one. Qtec uses Koyo bearings, and Morris uses Timken bearings. Morris is $100 more expensive! Oh, what to do, what to do...

The peppers are great! I could eat them right out of the jar, but I'll use them more sparingly

Not me, man! I'm glad you like them. Sorry so long in getting them to you. It's my wife's fault!

I'd use Timken as well. Been on top for decades. Which tranny model is that?

I know Timken is good, but I don't anything about Koyo. Okay... I'll stay with the proven winner.

It's a T176, Rene...

Hey Scott. The kits are all going to be close to the same parts other than the bearings. Timken's are my brand of choice as well. Just so you know they are no longer made in the USA. I went with the kit from Novak. Its more expensive, however their tech support is par to none. When I did my rebuild I could call and talk to a guy who actually rebuilds T-176's for living and get definitive answers. You can get great support here as well..
