He needs to get some work shoes. It sucks cleaning grease out of your toe nails haha.

I assume you already have a new trans ready to go in?

Bearing fail. Why does this happen? Every time I've taken my trans out the pilot bearing has come out in pieces.

I desperately need a garage. Anyone want to but a nice 3/2 with a pool only 3 miles from the ocean?

Haha, pretty much. Jared and I had a good laugh when I drained my trans. As soon as I pulled the drain plug a HUGE chunk of metal shavings plopped out. Like the size of those little bouncy *****.
