Well a little.

Here it is back from NAPA flush-n-clean.

Yes it is in the "warmest room" in our house, the guest bathroom. I keep dreaming of it warming up enough to get some primer on it....

There is a bronze style bushing still down in there that I forgot to remove before sending to cleaners. I'm not sure of its condition before, nor am I sure if the cleaning might have been caustic to it. Tried using mirror and flashlight...my new eyes just can't get in focus on the little mirror down in the case. My brother has a bore scope that I'm going to borrow, I've gone too far into this $$$ wise to slip up on a bushing now. If it is bad I'm not even sure what I will have to rig up to change it out...Still no response on my bearings e-mail, so I guess I'll start looking (probably get one of the boys or wife to read the sales screens at bearing supply places) Think I'm going to save for a "BIGGER" computer screen.

 

Been working on the shop lights and garage door opener and surviving the second actual snow we've had this year last week.

I'll try to post the garage photos in the correct forum later. Man are they NICE :dancingbanana: improvements, I actually feel like going out there just to flip the switches  :rolling:

Wow, bare bones clean. Yea it would be nice to get a quick response for your bearings.

I switched out our 22" monitor to a 32" flat screen TV we hardly used...big difference! I mainly did it for my wife.

As soon as I can get the "stats" of my system I'm gonna post in the computer section on here asking for suggestions on the monitor change. thanks for the encouragement.

Jim, I found some pics Gerog Eisenberger from Bavaria sent me back in the day... If you remember it is a total resto to include making his own hood. And it is a fresh K-181 mag/rope start.

Just saw this post. I remember seeing the "O" by the lake (very inspiring) and being pulled by the 782 to a showing. The other photos are new to me. Seems like Georg had to fabricate more than just that hood, but can't recall exactly (and maybe it was another of his projects) Everything I ever saw of his was always top drawer work, and very little in the way of parts/examples was available to his location. Anybody know how he is doing?

Back to the "O" transaxle, my brother is scheduled to be in this week, so hopefully he remembers the scope and I can see that bushing.  I really hope it is good because I haven't found one yet. I have garnered that one really odd bearing finally, that was burned blue from lack of oil. Have some pcs coming from Eastern Pennsylvania, somewhere in the windy part of Kansas, and Lancaster Ohio still.  Been working on plan B for plow-day and that has been snagged as well...Several folks have offered me a round on their units and I may just have to take somebody up on their offer and spend the rest of my time at the coffee pot. Last time I made it to Daniels it was late October (I think) and the coffee cup warmth was all that kept my fingers from locking up ! It was still a great time and I'm really looking forward to this trip. Should be warmer this trip, but time sure seems to be moving fleeting/fast towards April compared to my repairs ...

Well the bore-scope (my brothers) a little gizmo that looks kinda like a flash drive with multiple cables coming out of it (BD gift from 3rd son) and my second son helped me get it all hooked up and programed to work yesterday.

The first day that I've been able to get through the man door on the shop in over a month. We have been fighting a white faced hornet nest that covered the top third of door. Those things are NASTY.

Anyway here is the bushing way down in trans-axle.

We were amazed at how big dust and/or rag fuzzys are !
