transmission fixed

I finaly had time to finish assorted work on the transmission, I replaced the bad viscous on the BW transfer, replaced the broken differential and add a needed rear OME HD spring pair

I knew that driving around with a seized viscous on the BW could break something along the drivetrain. Didn't expect what/where happened...

We were getting out of the grocery shop when I heard the dreaded metallic loud "clack"
It kept repeating about each revolution of the rear tires.... something was broken.

After some "constructive" thinking I got to drive the car home and today, I took the rear axle components out to find out what is wrong.... at least I was right on my diagnosis broken rear diff, ring and pinion are toast.

Some pictures for your enjoyment....

Ventura Offroad Expo

I took my daughter to this event and we had some fun, although most of the stuff is not for Land Rovers, is still pretty cool stuff. I'll post some of the pictures:

I always liked this old trucks, this one is particularly nice.

The little RCs had a place for action too.

The big red truck... and diesel, maybe one day!

Armor!.... wait, armor?

A proper Land Cruiser...

Ah, no, this is the Big Red Truck!

Checking out the RVs

You could get lost in this one...
