got the gearboxes changed. spent at least an hour trying to remove the box, before removing the last bolt. after taking out the last bolt, the idiot was able to proceed
used 2 u-joints to replace one, on the rear driveshaft...… crossed a needle bearing on the first try.
all&all, i'm pleased w/my tinkertime.
expect roadable tomorrow.
expect to be in the sierras this time next week.
looking forward.

put fluid in the gearbox.
found 4x4switch function fail. spent a lot of time removing the switch(not easy when box is in place),tried to find the small ball i had put? behind the switch, installed proper larger ball, re-install switch and gain function. wonder where the ball went.
think i'll move tires around since i can.

then see if she works right...…..

ahha.
suzi the psychic still moves, and things appear o k.
think i'll see if she gets me to work in the morning..... and back.

suzi the psychic has brought me home again.
we were able to crawl the sierras with the best travel companions possible.
damage was sustained, but mitigated, throughout the adventure.
epic.

suzi the psychic is always willing to give her all to these ventures.
her hyway drive is a real pain, and i think more tinkering is required.
i believe an open diff. for the hyway is in her future- that poor lunchbox locker mostly acts like what a spool does?
be fun to play w/an airlocker.
broke some metalglue joint in the front skid and used a few zip ties to hold it in position(and tried not to hit it there), but that is the only obvious carnage.
we will see- closer inspection need to be done...…..
looking forward.

suzi the psychic wants another fish run.
so do I.
perhaps a close inspection of the rear locker should happen first.
i still have the original papers and replacement springs, so mabe the "shop" will open this weekend.
mabe attend to the broken front skid(ziptie should be fine for this run, though).
haha- should only take a few hours.

hmmm.
so, once again, i have stripped her rearend apart.
i see no obvious problem, and observe seemingly proper function.
i have not found the little replacement springs- time seems to have eaten them- and am reluctant to do a complete disassembly.
i may just put her back together and use ear plugs.
