tried figuring out the pic thing, but haven't yet.
heard of photoshop complaints, and now may understand why....i see those pics are locked or something....
set suzi free on the road- lots of drivetrain noise that gets louder w/speed.
hmmm.
it will be howling on the hwy.
i worry about the hwy stuff.

I've had a general conversion to Imgur for pics, recently. There's no similar third-party image as Photobucket has been giving recently. Cheers

old dog/new trick.
we will see about pics.
i did torture suzi w/some hyway howling, and made a fishrun w/miss bitchy.
i had peeked into her differential, expecting to find mush bearings, but it looked fine.
i reset the bearing preloads and backlash and stuffed it back in.
no change.
i have successfully removed an axle bearing from the left axle, and should be able to do the right side- expect to have her back in operation next week.
mabe new outer bearings will quieten her down......?
miss bitchy did real well. we had some snow on our way in. got interesting.

success in replacing the axle bearings(and outer seals).
had to make an interesting jumble of items to act as a press plate, to remove the bearings- installation was more conventional.
something in the gearbox(?) is still howling, louder w/speed.
everything seems to work fine.
with ear plugs.
i had replace the transmission/transfercase mounts(and engine mounts) with some very solid "unbreakable" ones.
the stock things kept ripping the rubber apart.
perhaps i am just hearing more gear noise due to lack of isolation......?
perhaps another run in a couple weeks.
i took some pictures of the bearing work. it was interesting. i should learn how to post 'em.

haha.
nixed the fishrun idea, and decided to strengthen the chassis- where the steeringbox bolts on.
several cracks and tears have been appearing, as if the chassis has been twisting.
got some metal plates and straps formed, and intend to weld it all together.
this could even look good.

-it certainly looks like something happened to it, and it kinda looks like i thought it should........
metalglued the plates and straps to the chassis.
expect to see if the steeringbox will still fit sometime this week.
squirted some paint to hide the repair site.

the steering box fits- still need to weld a steering limiter in place, and remount the pump&hoses&reservoir- should work.
got sidetracked by flailing around w/the grinder, damaging the copper tubing for my old mechanical oil pressure guage.
wiring an upgrade triggered a revisiting of the rats nest of splicing....added some nest.

i will be surprised if suzi's soft top lasts another year. her back "window" has been a problem(zipper) pretty much since it was new.
gotta think of a hardtop. mabe.

suzi could see the 'con again- still looking like this steering breakage repair will work.
finished w/the metal glue gun(mabe) by sticking on a steering stop, so i can make her mobile again.
still gotta fixup some of her electric "circuit".
