Replaced leaking pan gasket and rear main seal while transmission is being rebuilt.
I need to plan things better. In the past, I was the guy who would take the tranny out to have it rebuilt, then put it back in. a few months later I would realize I need to take the tranny back out and take care of the leaking main seal.
Contacted my local vendor to get the following in preparation for my 8.8 regear which I hope to start by early Jan.
and YJ Brake lines for the HPD30 for next year.
My plan now is to try to have it all ready for April 1 to go in. I will be buying stuff every month except April. At that point I will be missing Chromoly shafts which can be swapped out at any point (most likely during the breakin fluid changes)
Between now and mid Jan I want to have HP30 finished regearing and 8.8 cleaned up and all old brackets removed.
Oh and I need to decide on what Diff cover to get for the 8.8: Riddler, Solid or Ballistic Fab. (I like the skull but I don't see a fill hole)
I'd go for the cover with the most clearance. My riddler has pretty good clearance...but I'm not sure which has the most
Ordered a pair of double adjustable Duroflex control arms.
Also, my cooling fan ate my radiator on Monday, so after sitting on the interstate for an hour and a half for my girlfriend and her dad to come tow me home, I got my radiator replaced. I just bought a new fan clutch (the cause of all of this), but can't seem to find a replacement fan anywhere. Suggestions?
