    Soooo the C2500, now named TheKracken, had a bad case of diarrhea today.

    She got her name because a PO lived in Florida and used her to put boats in the ocean. She has the rust to prove it.

    Yesterday the rear end started singing. Today I pumped in 3/4 gallon of gear oil and was treated to this.

    No problem, says I, I have one hanging on the kitchen wall as a decoration.

    So I pulled the leaker off, and found a hole.

    Tiny, but enough to leak.
    Then I grabbed the other cover, See a problem?

    I called around and no one had one. I ordered one from NAPA. It will be here tomorrow.


    I drank beer for the rest of the day.

    If it wasn't so damn hot they would all be running now. Well maybe.

    Bad news. TheKracken is wounded badly. When the radiator went out it did more damage than we thought. Blown head gasket.

    Since I have the K2500 I am going to repair it. It will be a better work truck and 4wd to boot. It needs headgaskets so it will be the same amount of work either way.

    I will fix TheKracken later.

    Not so far. Been busier than a one legged man in a butt kicking competition.
