Try Henderson, KY. Just here for a visit, then going back to isolation on the rock in the middle of the Pacific where you can't get anything but sunburn. Working harder though in retirement than I...

Only worry about the synchro hubs if you see a crack in the body, or if the teeth around the perimeter are chewed up. As far as the synchro function of the hub goes, the brass is very soft compared...

Best thing you can do is get back under there and have a look. You can drop the transfer case and pull off the rear housing and get to all the 5th gear assembly without pulling out the transmission...

I don't think I'd go nuts about metal on the magnet as you describe. This may just be from the new gears meshing in with their partners. I'd change the oil and keep driving it. Change out your...

Well, remember I have not heard the noise. The quality of the noise could be more likely to help narrow things down. For years I used a floor jack with a cradle I welded up to hold the transmission...
