I want to give a shout out to Dan for helping me on multiple occasions w my truck. His depth of knowledge is incredible and his attention to detail is aways appreciated. He has given me a leak free (mostly and for now :)) truck for the first time after repairing rear diff, transfer case leak and front pinion. Dan you are the man.

Don't worry, I'm sure you'll get your beloved leaks back soon enough...  :P

That sounds pretty awesome! 

 

 

@Dan... my turn! my turn!

 

I have a slow leaking LT230, and possibly leak at ZF4HP22 transmission to the LT230 (Don spotted the red fluid on the CDL cover over the wkend - thanks, Don!), also the rear diff seal (maybe the front too, but currently too gunked up with dirt, so leak may be dormant)..., a small seepage (it's not a leak! leak drips; seepage wets) on transmission cooler line. Oh, lastly, 2-days fresh exhaust leak between manifold and downpipe due to one broken stud. 

 

Do you think you can look at them @ the Annual? I can meet you there early Friday. 

Plus, mine is a Rover V8... should be easier than the TDi. ;)

 

 

j/k. :D

I expect to be there early on Friday, I may even go down Thursday eve. and camp at Sycamore camp or one of the other campgrounds. So anyway, that should be doable. I'll bring my creeper so I can roll around underneath and have a good look, there's a nice concrete pad by the bathrooms that would work just fine for an under-car inspection.

Thanks and appreciate the offer, Dan! 

My sense of humor in my earlier post prob didn't come through... :)

All the leaky parts are factual, but I wouldn't ask you or anyone to crawl under the truck - esp during the Annual.

With nearly 150k miles, I expect gaskets and seals are now well beyond their service life, replacing worn parts is really the way to remediate. 

See you next week!

It wouldn't be the first time I've done a repair job at the Annual! And really, all I'm offering at this point is to take a look, dealing with the leaks you describe most likely entails pulling the transfer case and resealing it.

Well, if you're turning him down I'll have him fix all the leaks in Katrina. Dan, how clear is your schedule for that ....

Lol!

Don, do you have a trailer to tow the 2-post lift down to the annual?
And there is already a concrete pad, so... tough part is done. ;)

I have a two post lift and a trailer...but somehow, I don't think the park service would like us drilling holes for anchors in their concrete pad! And I doubt it's a 4" thick pad anyway, so I think that option is out. :P

Eh....bring a couple 3' square pieces of 1/2" plate and we'll anchor through that plus around the perimeter.  I'm sure the pad will be fine. 

 

Shall I stop at Home Despot on my way and pick up some Redheads and an SDS drill?   :)
