Luke's auto swap - Blood, Sweat and Tears - Literally !!

Well I spent my Sunday changing the Auto trans in Lukes car, reason for change is 2nd gear was stuffed in his old Trans, so he got one form the wreckers with thanks to the help of Mick (InitialD) and John (John_Xr6), and it looks in pretty good nick, I didnt get to see how it drove as it was 10.30pm or so when I left and was looking forward to getting home, cleaned up, and getting some sleep.

Blood - Luke managed to cut his hand, and did a damn fine job, about 4 stitches in the top of it (will let him post more) he is OK , but he did this at about 12 or so, and took 2 hours out of my schedule getting stitched up and waiting for the blood to slow, AND then slowed me down the rest of the day due to his injury , but he is OK thats all that matters.

Sweat - It was a damn hot day, and spending most of the afternoon working by myself due to luke's injury, Luke put in a fair effort still being injured and all and was still a great help I must say (what a trooper)

Tears - Thats what I was getting very close to at about 8.30 pm trying to undo the tailshaft bolts (hate them, hate them, hate them!!), so it could be slotted back into the gearbox, but finally got them undone, and tailshaft back in, with everything bolted up checked, tightened, filled and ready for testing, it was 10.30pm so I was out of there.

So Luke I hope it ran ok, and will leave it to you to elaborate on your injury story

Re: Luke's auto swap - Blood, Sweat and Tears - Literally !!

Ouch 4 stitches. Sounds like you've got a bit of patience Jason. I tend to shout, swear and throw and destroy things within reach. Tailshaft bolts I found if you use a ring spanner with an offset end turned around they don't slip off nearly as much. Strange they were tight again wasn't there problems getting it off last time it was worked on?

Well due to missing that, and a few other things, I am now stuck between making the GOR cruise and helping out family with house building at Tarwin on the Sunday, will wait and see.
