So after a couple of weeks we determined my tranny had a bad input shaft bearing. So on Sunday my 40 was up in the air and a new, smooth running tranny was installed......in about 10 hours. The ability to remove that cross member saved more time than conceivable. We ran out of time to replace the exhaust. I had to just say uncle and take her to a shop in town to get the headers installed. I dropped my rig off this morning before heading into the firehouse. And hopefully get to drive it home tomorrow without stinking if exhaust anymore. We'll keep you updated.
