Saturday The Blonde went shopping with the Powder Puff so I didn't get anything done. Today was a different story. I backed Cecilia out and for a "please" and a "thank-you" I paid two little helpers to spray cleaner all over the frame, rear end, and transfer case.

Then out came the power washer. The boy wanted a shot with it so I let him try. He did pretty well. He thought it was cool that it was so strong that it blew chunks of dirt off of the transfer case.

Check out his work on the transfer case. It was a black greasy mess before.

The rear end cleaned up nice too. I'll be pulling it apart soon and painting it. Dirt wasn't good for the paint.

While Cecilia dried I painted the bits from last time.

Me and The Blonde are heavy drinkers too. That pic shows me and The Boy roasting coffee beans. I dont grind till it's time to brew. They're cheaper (scottish tightwad in me again) and I get a kick out of roasting them. It's a good teaching time. I get to roast them how I like them too so thats a bonus.

Dark and smokaaayyy!

We go through a gallon ziplock bag of Sumatran every month plus a 2 quart tin of "special" roast. Usually some kind of french espresso blend. Yeah, we're dangerous around coffee.


I tease The Blonde that it'll take us two weeks to stop movin once we die just to burn the caffeine off.

Fetch never tried roasting the beans, been thinking about giving it a try as I've seen the un-roasted beans for sale. My lady is a Tea person when I say coffee she looks at me like I stepped in something. But that just leaves more for me to enjoy, cause life has it's trade offs..Vernski

Haha! it sure does. You can roast em real easy just get yourself one of those old airpop popcorn poppers (13 bucks at walmart), cut the bottom out of a tin can (to elongate the popper's neck), and buy green beans. They take longer the first pound or so as the popper gets seasoned but after that you get a stuffed gallon bag of beans in about 45 minutes. A tin in about 15 mins.

If you try it let me know how it turned out

I was running around in my undies since the kids are all in school so I couldn't pull the truck out for a real test, but I fired up my ultra-pressor and plugged it in. It's not really as loud as they make out on the youtube videos. You can run it without earplugs in a garage in your underwear.

It's not as fast as sandblasting, but the results are similar. And it's probably better on the lungs. I'll know more next weekend when I can get under there and really get after it.

Wait, maybe they'll send me money or more tools...Or maybe trade me money for tools. Yeah, this could work out!

Today I got in my order of gear oil for the differentials. I may have mentioned it but I ordered Red Line part number 57904, it's 75W90 GL-5 Gear Oil. I ordered 3 quarts since they should take 1.3 quarts each. That'll leave me a little left over for learning and mistake-makin.

I also got in a set of rear ultra quiet brakes from Wagner. I can't put things on until next weekend but when I get started I gotta get a lot done because its only 4 weekends before I need to put the bed back on. Ive been taking pics of every kiddo on the stepside on their birthday since we got Cecilia and the next birthday is coming up quick!

I had to make a run to get some cedar logs for gate posts today with the lil' blonde. It was a good excuse to take Cecilia for a spin on a 30 mile run to see how she did engine-wise.

The engine held up great.....The tranny? Well... We'll get to that.

Things started off smooth. We gassed up with an extra 2 gallons just to be safe.

Couldn't feel better

I had just let off the gas a little and the transmission or the transfer case let out a loud squeal like rubbing metal. We were still about 10 miles from the house. We started prayin.

When I pressed the gas petal again (put it under load) it stopped altogether. Then it squealed constantly any time I let off the gas to slow down or pushed in the clutch to shift. Anytime the engine wasn't pushing on it the tranny or transfer case was singing it's banshee song.

I got out at the next stop sign to take a peek but nothing was hanging out, tied up in the axle or looked suspicious so it had to be inside somewhere. I thought maybe squirting the transfer case with all that water under high pressure caused it to suck up water and maybe that was the problem.

We made it home thankfully. i put the baby down for a nap and pulled out the book to see how to drain and refill the fluids right quick.

The manual said "check the fluids. To work on it drain and replace the fluids. See another page:

Looks like your on the right track Pepsi the plug at the lower level is the drain. When empty replace the drain plug leave the top plug out then fill with gear oil till it runs out then replace the plug. Most all trucks and pickups are the same in the way of checking the level of rear,trans or trans-case. In finding what is making the noise take off the drive shaft. Run the engine with the transmission in gear and that being a 4 wheel take the front shaft off also. that should tell you where the noise is coming from. It is possible it could be a U joint but I don't think so. The process of elimination as simple as it gets. Hey that Red Line gear oil is good stuff the fleet I drove for used it in all there trucks. Good luck on the problem..Vernski
