    Dang Bill - for that my wife might let me make house calls (but then she would just spend it at a spa or some other fru-fru thing) :)

    That sounds like a reasonable rate if he's coming to you and working outside.

    i got an idea chuck.
    you find an overdrive and buy it cheap.
    sell it to me dear.
    and i will pay you to install it!

    while your wife gets her toenails waxed.
    (or whatever it is they do in those places)
    i will feed you beer and pizza and hand you tools.....:D

    he told me he put the gears where they needed to be and then put the top cover of the t98 straight down.
    which is hard to do because the corner of the gas tank is in the way.

    as far as i can tell.
    i know i did the spicer18 correctly.
    and i know i connected it to the tranny correctly.
    but havent done anything but run through the gears as of yet.
    (drops to knees and prays fervently)
    dear sweet lil baby jesus.
    please dont take out your rage against my sinful ways on the innocent slug.
    your pal

    amen
